Peter Jackson’s acclaimed new World War I documentary, “They Shall Not Grow Old,” has been lighting up the box office in limited release.
Released by Fathom Events, which specializes in one-day releases such as opera performances and live Rifftrax performances, the film has made a rather incredible $5.4 million in only two days of screenings.
Suffice to say, for a historical documentary these are pretty eye-popping figures, and they more than justify a wider release for the film.
As such, Warner Bros. will launch a limited theatrical release of “They Shall Not Grow Old” in NYC, L.A. and Washington D.C. beginning on January 11, with plans to expand into 25 more markets on Feb. 1.
