The physical version of ‘Blue Jasmine‘ is also out in Australia. The French version is released on 29th January, the UK version will be released in 17th February and the German version on the 14th March. ‘Blue Jasmine‘ is also out on iTunes and various other digital services.
With the physical versions out, we can assume that ‘Blue Jasmine‘ has pretty much finished it’s run in theatres. It’s box office worldwide total is $95,907,893, and it’s likely to stay there. It means it is just short of Vicky Cristina Barcelona’s $96.4 million, making it Allen’s third highest grossing film worldwide. Which is a surprise, because ‘Blue Jasmine’ has not performed great in many overseas markets, falling short of what To Rome With Love earned in those markets, despite better reviews.
“…some people…they don’t put things behind so easily.” The best line from the movie!… and spoken by The Dice Man no less! The other great moment from the film is at 1:04. As Jasmine hangs up the phone after setting the date with Dwight she breaks down. Its as if she realizes that as her relationship with Dwight builds, she can sense that it’ll ultimately be destroyed by her mythomania. Its too painful for her to be normal. She just cant be honest and be herself.
