Irish film Cardboard Gangsters is set to become the biggest Irish movie of the year after a super strong box office opening.
Its moved up into the cinema charts to third place, just behind Transformers and Wonder Woman after having the biggest opening of any Irish film so far in 2017.
So far the movie has grossed €78k from 47 Republic of Ireland cinemas, with a total earning of €192k following the showings in Northern Ireland.
So, what's it all about?
The film follows a group of wannabe gangsters as they attempt to gain control of the drug trade in Darndale, chasing the glorified lifestyle of money, power and sex.
Jay Connolly (Connors) is a part-time DJ and low-level drug dealer. When his welfare is cut off he decides it’s time for him and his gang to enter the big leagues. This attracts the attention of the local King Pin and sets Jay down a violent and bloody path.
Director Mark O'Connor said “it’s amazing to see the reaction the film is receiving here in Ireland.
“To receive five star reviews was incredible but now to see how Irish audiences are going to cinema in high numbers to watch this home grown film is something special. This is Irish cinema, with an Irish soundtrack and an Irish cast and hopefully the film will continue to build momentum through word of mouth.”
