The highly anticipated Jamaica feature film “Out the Gate” made its historic opening last weekend in New York City to enthusiastic crowds.
From a list of 112 movies currently playing in United States theaters, box office gross reports show the film starring Paul Campbell and Oliver Samuels in the #13 position in the nation, in a ranking of average gross per screen.
The action/drama also starring Shelli Boone and Everton Dennis, opened in New York City at AMC Theaters and National Amusement Multiplex Cinemas last Friday in the first multi-theater opening for a Jamaican film in decades.
The motion picture has captured the hearts of audiences as they responded greatly to the well-rounded story, laughing and interacting with the movie throughout.
Dennis, who also co-wrote the story, was present at select showings and stated the most consistent response was “When is Part 2 coming?”.
From the great response so far it is expected that “Out the Gate” is destined to be a Jamaican classic, with great cross-over potential.
