Figures released this morning by the UK Film Council put the Best British Independent Film of 2009, MOON, in the top 20 box office for both UK Films, and UK Independent Film.
Fantastic for a little British Sci-Fi, with limited release, and limited promotion. Despite this, MOON has continued to perform well in theatres around the world, currently on general release in Germany (1 year after original UK release) and approaching $10 Million gross worldwide (src Box Office Mojo)
A lot of MOON’s success has been down to incredibly good word of mouth, and support from movie sites, and the movie blogging community. Thanks to everyone who went out and bought a ticket 🙂
If you missed MOON at the cinema last year, you can catch it at the Prince Charles Cinema, and the BFI Southbank in August.
Thanks to Pinewood Studios for the heads up (follow them on Twitter)
