SPANIARDS flocked to the big screen in their masses last weekend.

The country’s highest grossing movie of the year so far is Eight Catalan Surnames (Ocho apellidos catalanes), taking €11 million in the first week alone.

The controversial comedy streaks ahead of James Bond, poking fun at the Catalan independence crisis from a small Catalan village.

Viewings were especially high in Catalunya, accounting for 26% of Spanish viewers.

The film, which also goes under the English title, Spanish Affair 2, is a sequel to Universal’s 2014 success, Spanish Affair, which, with nine million cinemagoers, broke all box-office records in Spain.
