Thank You New York!

Last weekend we opened at the Quad in New York and remained the #1 film in the complex for the entire week, becoming one of the Quads top three grossing films all year. Thank you to everyone who came out to see the film, we heard reports of big laughs and much applause which is wonderful to hear over here. It was also our largest box office draw, with Seattle coming in a close second.

You might be wondering why it isn't there anymore? We're wondering the same thing. We were told that if we had the numbers and were bringing in the crowds, the movie would be held over. We brought in the numbers but were still kicked out of our strongest market when every other theater screening our film has decided to hold it over. This experience has just strengthened our story of how tough it is to distribute a film independently in the current marketplace.

One other positive thing that has come out of our New York screening is that theaters in Boston and DC saw the success of our run and have contacted us about releasing the film in their markets. So now we are planning a December release of Outsourced in both Boston and DC. I'm hoping that list may grow in the coming weeks and maybe even include a return to Manhattan!

So thanks again to everyone who has come out to support the film, and I hope you continue to spread the word! Cheers!
