Kudos spice up Miramax lunch

'Chicago,' top territorial distribs saluted

Distribs from around the world tucked into an exotic spread at Miramax’s annual Cannes lunch Friday at the Majestic Beach.

Miramax saluted its all-time top grosser, “Chicago” and, in a new development, presented Box Office Awards of Excellence to distribs achieving record grosses in their respective territories.

These included Buena Vista Intl. in the U.K. (a gross of more than $26 million for “Chicago”) and Japan’s Gaga Communications (more than $22 million for “Shaolin Soccer”).

The company also presented an admissions award to TFM/France for achieving in excess of 1 million admissions in France for “Chicago.”

After thanking the distribs, Miramax co-topper Harvey Weinstein said international grosses of “City of God” were strong, but pic deserves another shot: Company plans an Oscar-season re-release and he urged distribs not to release it on video yet.
