MOON NAZIS BRING HOME 3 MILLION USD OVER EASTER
Finnish-German-Australian Moon Nazi comedy Iron Sky was released on April 4th in Finland (Buena Vista Finland) and Norway (Euforia), and the next day in German-speaking Europe (Polyband), on 340 screens, and gathered more than 250.000 admissions over the Easter weekend. The results are very promising also for the hundreds of fans who have invested money in Iron Sky.
In Finland the film was clearly nr. 1, with close to 75.000 admissions.
In Germany Iron Sky made double screen average than most of its competitors, opening in 164 screens and gaining over 140.000 admissions – so much that the German distributor is upping the amount of screens.
“The opening was great”, the producer of Iron Sky, Tero Kaukomaa from
Blind Spot Pictures says. “This is a great opportunity to build further, and those territories who did not yet decide the final release strategy and size got some encouraging news. This opening indicates us millions of cinema admissions around the world. Our next task is to make sure this news is distributed everywhere by our fans and followers.”
Swetlana Winkel , CEO of the german distributor Polyband says; ”We are very glad that so many fans of Iron Sky went to see the film although it was easter holidays and very cold. We will increase the screens to follow the huge demand all over Germany, Austria and Switzerland and we say thank you to all Iron Sky Fans”.
Next Iron Sky is to open in Iceland (Greenlight), Sweden (Noble Entertainment), Denmark (MisLabel), UK (Revolver), Poland (Kino Swiat), Slovenia & Serbia (Discovery), Australia & New Zealand (Hoytts), US & Canada (Entertainment One), France (Synergy Cinema), Korea (Zamie Pictures), Israel (Shovel Film) and Japan (Presidio), among other territories. Iron Sky team is updating a release map for all the fans to follow when to expect the film to their home territory. The map can be found here; http://www.ironsky.net/site/film/releasedates/
Iron Sky director Timo Vuorensola enjoyes the start, but reminds that the work is far from done: ”We get requests constantly from Spain, Italy and Latin America to get the film to theaters there as well, and we are working furiously to get the distributors to understand the power of the fan community and the awesome word-of-mouth the film is gaining. The best way to get the word out there is to ask to see Iron Sky in these areas, and our Demand-service is a tool just for that.”
