The 2 premiers in BERLIN and 5 days later in MUNICH marked a appropriate setting for the offical German theatrical start. Both screenings were a celebration and the parties were intense.
And even the heat-wave, which struck Germany couldn’t keep the crowd out of the cibemas. Both cities of course were leading the list in the number of viewers, followed by COLOGNE, which had a slower start. I guess the party was missing. But it seems 9to5 is a ‘city movie’. And due to the strong request of people, we are very glad to finally have a theatre in HAMBURG, the famous ABATON, playing it and starting Thursday 16th of July (check list below).
The day before, actually tomorrow, we also have a Q&A (question and answer) in the CINEMA in MÜNSTER, which also starts playing this week. Whoever wants to come, I will be there, ready to discuss with you and answer all your questions.
We are also very proud, that we kind of competed with Ice Age 3 with the media coverage. Some links below, just to give you a little hint, how great the movie has been appreciated, even by the most critical ones. OK – there were 3 or 4 not so good articles. But when I put it in relation to the hundred great ones, I am totally fine with it.
There have been more and more questions about the SOUNDTRACK. I hope we find a partner for this soon. Keep sending those mails. It helps!
Finally – I am very proud to be invited to 3nach9 – the great live talk on NDR TV Friday the 17th – have a look!
