The Queen’s Corgi also scored the best opening for a film produced by nWave, which also produced hits The Son of Bigfoot and Sammy.

The company’s teaser for the film proved to be Lionsgate’s top-performing teaser of the year in Britain. Lionsgate is now planning a July release.

The movie was produced by Stassen’s Brussels-based studio nWave which was recently acquired Matthieu Zeller’s production group MZM, as well as the distribution group Belga Films, tax-shelter arm Belga Films Fund Holding and regional fund Wallimage Entreprises.
