The Russian fantasy film “Goalkeeper of the Galaxy,” directed by Janik Fayzieva, who starred for seven years with a budget of 1 billion rubles, sold for distribution in the United States and will be released there in January 2021. In Russia it comes out in August and will be the first major domestic movie premiere after quarantine. Due to restrictions in the sale of tickets and special Seating in cinemas, the producers of the project with a budget of RUB 1 billion preparing for the revenue loss.Luminescence is the company responsible for international distribution of the film “Goalkeeper of the galaxy”, sold it for theatrical distribution in the US under the name “Cosmoball”, the publication reported Screen Daily. “Goalkeeper of the galaxy” is also sold in France, Germany, Spain, Japan, Latin America and other but not specified, to show on what grounds.”Goalkeeper of the galaxy” is a family action fantasy about the future, the Director dzhanik Faiziev shot it for seven years. The budget is about 1 billion rubles, including the project invested CTB film company, Sergey Selyanov, and the film Foundation provided 200 million rubles of subsidies on return. The plot of 2070 Moscow was in the tropics, and above it on a space ship competitions in Cocobolo.Options transactions with Western distributors are not disclosed. “Keeper of the galaxy” was bought by distributor Well Go USA, which has bought Russian paintings, including “the Legend of Kolovrat” by the same Janik Fayzieva and “T-34”. Fees “the legend of the Kolowrat” in the United States in 2017 amounted to only $10 million, the data on “T-34” no.For the big screen in America Russian films rarely take, indicates Sergei Selyanov. “Interest from the United States to the Russian films, but when it comes down to it, the risks often outweigh the and movie never released,” says the producer Dmitry rudovsky. For example, to release in America the film “Stalingrad” by 2.5-3 thousand screens, advertising had to spend $25 million (the dollar was worth 32 rubles, “Kommersant”), he recalls. “In addition, Americans hard to protect their market and do not duplicate the Russian movie, so it falls into the category of art-house. And mainstream with subtitles, few people want to watch,” adds Mr. rudovsky.Achievements of the Russian cinema in the United States is very modest, points out the analyst of “film Business today” Stanislav Demidenko. “Stalingrad” was released in 308 theaters and grossed $1.02 million, but “it is not even close to wide release”. “The ads really stingy, that is the potential did not believe. For such a large release fees small. “Night watch” was published in 158 theaters (fees of $1.5 million), “Day watch” is 64 (fees of $450 thousand),” he says. The films of Andrei Zvyagintsev’s “Leviathan” and “Dislike” at the peak was 80 and 59 theaters, respectively, but it’s more art-house cinema for the connoisseur and lover, and his hire may last for several months, provided good press, and Sarahfun. “Regularly in the national press as there were reports about the success of Russian films in the US and Canada. But this is not a film in the conventional sense, and going a few days special screening. The calculation are based on the American audience and the Russian-speaking Diaspora, and success can be a few thousand tickets sold, and the high occupancy of the rooms is achieved by a small number of sessions and a clear focus on immigrant environment,” concludes the analyst. “Our film is the first major Russian releases after the quarantine, it will be the focus of the whole industry, but few understand what the fees will be,— says Sergey Selyanov.— Attendance can be significantly below the average, and less money. People may be afraid to go to the cinema, and even if people will flock to the premiere, attendance rules do not allow to sell more than 50 tickets per session”. The producer estimates the drop in theatrical revenue this year from the industry at 30%.As previously reported by “Kommersant”, because of the closure of cinemas worldwide major motion picture studios, Hollywood and Russian, have shifted the main premiere in the spring and summer to autumn and 2021. The result of the fall in the rental will crush, and the Ministry of culture shall consult with the distributors, producers and cinema on how to separate the dates a large number of releases.Anna Afanasyeva
