movie facts

Three years before the film’s official release, 20th Century Fox optioned the book for a film adaptation even before its complete publication. The project, however, did not receive the green light until Streep was cast in the lead role. The Devil Wears Prada premiered at the LA Film Fest on June 22, 2006. It was shown in theaters in the USA on June 30, 2006. The film was well-received by critics, with Streep winning great acclaim for her majestic performance. Streep’s character is widely believed to be based on U.S. Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The film’s successful reception eventually led to several award nominations for Streep, including an Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe Award. Similarly, Blunt also drew admiration from the audience for her performance. It garnered gross earnings of $300 million worldwide against its production budget of $41 million. It claimed the 12th highest grossing film worldwide in 2006. To save face, most designers and other fashion icons chose to steer clear of appearing as themselves in the film. However, they allowed The Devil Wears Prada’s filmmakers to use their apparel for the characters’ costume, making the film one of the most expensively costumed films.
