“Surprising as it may be, the answer lies in the fact that the film has an all-black cast. French cinema is often pointed at for not fairly displaying all components of the country’s multiethnic population. Although the recent success of the movie Les Intouchables, which earned French African actor Omar Sy the Cesar award for Best Actor in 2012, caused great pride and hope among French nationals from Africa and the Caribbean, it was not to be the turning point for a deep and lasting change.”
But in a statement to BET.com, Sony Pictures said, “Think Like A Man was never planned for release in France. Any reports to the contrary are false.”
Despite the reports, Think Like A Man is nearing the $100 million mark after its premiere just five weeks ago.
