On relevant news, “Before We Go” is the first film ever to make it to the top 5 on iTunes and top 10 on Rentrak’s charts in the US. Simultaneously showing in the Philippines (opened September 2) , “Before We Go” has been enjoying similar success on its Philippine theatrical release at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide with great reactions from local outlets citing Chris Evans’ directorial debut as a great accomplishment for the actor.
The movie is the second collaboration between distributor Radius and Chris Evans. “Before We Go’s success is two-fold. First off, Chris Evans is a huge draw and audiences want to see him as a romantic lead. Secondly, the industry has seen the box office (US) over-populated with studio tentpole-sequels, while original films like Straight Outta Compton are far and few between. Before We Go has managed to carve out a niche for itself proving there is a younger specialized audience interested in seeing a quality romance, that even if the movie first debuted in VOD, people are still planning to see the film in theatres,” shares Radius EVP Liza Burnett Fefferman.
An ideal date movie, “Before We Go” is now showing nationwide exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas.
