Mommy continues its impressive bonanza at the Canadian box office, as Quebec distributor Les Films Séville shared the news via Twitter that Xavier Dolan's film has officially crossed the three million dollar mark in Canada. This take is very impressive, since Mommy has not only widened its stance to be Quebec's top grosser of 2014, but it could potentially become the top Canadian earner at the Canadian box office if its streak continues. The film has already passed The Grand Seduction's take of $2.7 million and is on track to top Pompeii's take of $4 million that currently leads the maple bacon b.o. Mommy's prospects look healthy, since the film, Canada's Oscar bid for Best Foreign Language Film, will inevitably pick up more momentum and exposure as it enters the thick of awards season and the Canadian equivalents. The film has also passed the milestone of one million admissions in France, which is most impressive.

Mommy is currently screening in Ottawa at The Mayfair.
