THE FILM OF THE DAY

A few months after the release of La Totale! in 1991, its director Claude Zidi had cassettes subtitled in English and one of them landed with the brother-in-law of a certain Arnold Schwarzenegger. The latter sees the opportunity for a remake, although the adaptation work is substantial in order to focus more on action than on comedy. With this in mind, the actor asks the master of the blockbuster James Cameron with whom he collaborated on Terminator.

Upon its theatrical release, True Lies is a box office: it generates more than 365 million dollars in revenue worldwide. It is even, to date, the fourth biggest success of Arnold Schwarzenegger behind Terminator 2, Terminator Genisys and Terminator 3!
