The sequel to last year's smash-hit romcom delivers the same box-office bang.

Emilio Martinez-Lazaro’s A Spanish Affair 2 became this year's top-grossing film at the Spanish box office on Wednesday, having earned €24.5 million ($27 million) since its release by Universal Pictures International Spain (UPIS) less than three weeks ago.

The romantic comedy that plays on stereotypes that Spaniards have about each other now sits above Minions, Jurassic World and Fifty Shades of Grey with 3.9 million tickets sold. 

Spanish Affair 2 is the sequel to last year’s A Spanish Affair, which broke all-time records for ticket sales and sits only behind Avatar as the top-grossing film of all time at the Spanish box office with $61.9 million. Both pics saw Telecinco co-produce with La Zona Films, with Universal distributing theatrically in Spain.
