Two Little Boys has big opening day

New Zealand film TWO LITTLE BOYS has opened to number one place at the New Zealand box office, ahead of block-buster franchise Madagascar 3.

Public pre-release screenings, including the well supported premiere in Invercargill, were good indicators that the New Zealand movie going public were set to enjoy this comic ‘bromance’ from the Sarkies brothers, who last collaborated on the hit film Scarfies.

Troy Lum, Managing Director of Hopscotch Films/ eOne, the film's distributor, said "It's a fantastic opening day result and is a credit to all involved in making the film. It's wonderful that New Zealand audiences have embraced such a distinctive local production."

TWO LITTLE BOYS is set in Invercargill, New Zealand in the early 1990’s. Directed by Robert Sarkies (Scarfies, Out of the Blue) and stars comedians; Bret McKenzie from New Zealand’s acclaimed Flight of the Conchords, Hamish Blake from Hamish and Andy and Maaka Pohatu who recently played a lead role in the celebrated stage play Strange Resting Places. TWO LITTLE BOYS producer Vicky Pope comments "We’re absolutely thrilled the film has opened at number one. This is no mean feat for a New Zealand film and we thank the New Zealand public for this support. The story has everything- a crazy road trip, a love story, wild animals and even a bit of attempted murder. Weekend audiences are in for a very funny ride."

TWO LITTLE BOYS was released by Hopscotch Films/ eOne on Thursday 20 September.
