Apparition and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group have announced that they have decided to expand The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day “nationwide to additional markets” on November 13th 2009. The film grossed over $500,000 this past weekend in just four markets: New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and Philadelphia, with a per theater average of over $8,000. Because of the demand/fan base, the studio has announced that they will be opening the movie wider on November 13 to additional cities including Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago, Detroit, Dallas, Atlanta, Houston, and more.
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day is the much-anticipated sequel to the indie cult classic, The Boondock Saints. The film is the continuation of writer/director Troy Duffy’s tough, stylized cutting edge saga of the MacManus brothers (Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery). The two have been in deep hiding with their father, Il Duce (Billy Connolly), in the quiet valleys of Ireland, far removed from their former vigilante lives. When word comes that a beloved priest has been killed by sinister forces from deep within the mob, the brothers return to Boston to mount a violent and bloody crusade to bring justice to those responsible. With a new partner in crime (Clifton Collins Jr., Star Trek) and a sexy FBI operative (Julie Benz, TV’s “Dexter”) hot on their trail…the Saints are back!
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day is written and directed by Troy Duffy, starring Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, Billy Connolly, Clifton Collins Jr., and Julie Benz. Produced by Chris Brinker and Don Carmody, and executive produced by Lloyd Segan and Rob Fried.
The Boondock Saints: All Saints Day will opens wide in theaters on Friday, November 13.
