MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. The Russian science fiction blockbuster ‘Attraction’ by Fyodor Bondarchuk has already been sold for distribution to 74 countries, the press service of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International told TASS on Thursday.
"The film has already been successfully released in Latvia, Estonia and Vietnam," the press service said, adding that Bondarchuk’s Art Pictures Studio had signed distribution contracts with Conquest Filmes (Latin America) and R.D. FILMS (India) companies.
The blockbuster will be shown in 200 movie theaters in Mexico and Brazil, the press service said.
"Director Fyodor Bondarchuk had made a film showing essential social problems and appealing to contemporary audience," the press service quoted Conquest Filmes head Rubens Aranha as saying. "We are looking forward to the film’s release in Latin America and are discussing further cooperation with Art Pictures Studio."
"The film will be soon released in China (10,000 movie theaters)," the press service said, adding that negotiations on ‘Attraction’ distribution in English-speaking countries are underway.
'Attraction' tells the story of an UFO shot down over a densely populated Moscow residential neighborhood. The crash-landing leads to the loss of many lives. The Russian government immediately introduced martial law, as the locals grow angry at the unwelcome guest.
The film was released in Russian on January 26.
