Alain Belmont's castle
Following a car accident, Cedric (Philippe Lacheau) is convinced that he has become Badman, the superhero he plays in the movies. The film props present at the time of the accident lead him to believe that his wife and son are being held by the despicable supervillain The Clown (Georges Corraface) at the Château de Villette in Condécourt.
In reality, it is the residence of the actor playing the antagonist: Alain Belmont. When he arrives at the castle, Badman discreetly enters the house and kidnaps the actor’s child, believing it to be his own child.
The Fifi gang is used to come and shoot in the Val d’Oise department. Indeed Nicky Larson and 30 jours max were shot in Cergy, but also Alibi.com which was filmed in Ableiges, Boissy-l’Aillerie, Longuesse and Magny-en-Vexin.
Originally, Philippe Lacheau wanted to parody the Jason Bourne saga by starting from the same premise of an actor’s accident driving the car on set. He thought the choice of the spy was too dark and decided to make him a superhero relying only on gadgets without having real superpowers.
Super-héros malgré lui earned 142,435 admissions on its first day of release. This makes it the best opening for a film in 2022 and the second in Philippe Lacheau’s career as a director.
Chateau de Villette
The Villette castle was built in the XVIIth century in the city of Condécourt, in the department of Val-d’Oise.
Set in a vast 75-hectare estate, the Château de Villette has been classified as a historical monument since 1942. Built between 1663 and 1669 for Jean II Dyel, the estate has passed through the hands of many families belonging since 2011 to Sergei and Irina Bogdanov.
During the Second World War, the estate was bombed and damaged on August 27, 1944. It will be restored during the 1960s.
