MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. The Russian science fiction blockbuster ‘Attraction’ by Fyodor Bondarchuk is planned for release in English-speaking countries at the end of spring, one of the film’s producers, Dmitry Rudovsky, told TASS on Thursday.
Rudovsky said the film will be released in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia.
"We have achieved preliminary agreements with a foreign distributor that will be responsible for the film’s release in English-speaking countries," he said. "The release date will be appointed by the distributor but we think it will be late spring."
'Attraction' tells the story of a UFO shot down over a densely populated Moscow residential neighborhood. The crash landing leads to the loss of many lives. As a result, the Russian government immediately imposes martial law, as the locals grow enraged at the unwelcome guest.
The blockbuster has already been sold for distribution to 74 countries and is currently shown in Laos, Vietnam, South Korea and the Baltic states, Rudovsky said.
In April and May, ‘Attraction’ will be released in Germany, Italy, France and Japan, he added.
The film was released in Russian on January 26 and has already chalked up 1.1 bln rubles ($19 mln).
