"Bloody" good US opening


- Paul Greengrass's award winning film takes Euros45,000 after just one week on release on 2 New York screens

Since its opening on October 4 on just two New York screens, Paul Greengrass’s award winning film, Bloody Sunday is enjoying an excellent run with a gross box office take of over $45,000 (Euros 45,000) gross to date, and an impressive $22,500 (Euros 22,500) per screen average.
The film portrays the tragic events that took place on 30 January 1972 when British soldiers killed 13 unarmed Irish civilians who were taking part in a civil rights march in Londonderry, and it received very positive reviews in the US press. Bloody Sunday is scheduled to open nationwide over the next few weeks.
“The film’s performance in the US is incredible for a film like this and we’re absolutely delighted” said Jane Baker from the UK Portman Entertainment.
Bloody Sunday was picked up by Paramount Classics at the last Sundance Film Festival where it won the International Audience Award. The film also won the Golden Bear at the last Berlin Film Festival, and just the other day won the top Golden Hitchcock Award at the Dinard Film Festival in France.
On the 30th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, Granada Television - who financed Greengrass’s film – broadcast the movie on ITV and according to Jane Baker, it was seen by over 4.5 million viewers.
Bloody Sunday was released in the UK and Italy, is currently out in Israel, Greece and Australia, and is scheduled to open later this month in France, followed, in January 2003, by Scandinavia and Benelux, with Spain coming on line next March.
