victoryfilmgroup.com ^ | July 19, 2011

Posted on 07/19/2011 4:53:33 AM PDT by RonDog

Strong opening weekend fuels film’s expansion to Tucson, AZ, West Palm, FL, Milwaukee, WI, Charlotte, NC, and Ontario, CA

Additional theatres added in Phoenix, AZ and Atlanta, GA 

$11,000-plus per screen weekend averages in Orange County and Phoenix

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Santa Monica, Calif. (July 18, 2011) ⎯ ARC Entertainment today announced "The Undefeated," which chronicles Sarah Palin’s rise from obscurity to national prominence, will roll out to additional AMC Theatres (AMC) beginning on Friday, July 22nd.

With sold-out runs and enthusiastic audience support on opening weekend, the film will roll out to new markets including Tucson, AZ; West Palm, FL; Milwaukee, WI; Charlotte, NC; and Ontario, CA. The film will also expand into additional theatres in Atlanta, GA, and Phoenix, AZ, and will continue in theatres in Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; Denver, CO; Orlando, FL; and Orange, CA.

ARC Entertainment, the distributor of the film, announced today that the film had a stronger opening weekend than expected with the top markets, Phoenix and Orange County, achieving weekend per screen averages above $11,000 driven by multiple sold-out runs. The film was rushed to select digital theatres in only three weeks, and was marketed entirely through social media and grass roots efforts with virtually no traditional media spend.

“Given the audience response on our opening weekend we now know we have a film that works. Our objective is very simple⎯  to bring this film to every market and every corner of the country; starting with a limited theatrical release and then through an aggressive broader distribution strategy including streaming video, on-demand access and DVD,” stated filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon.

Trevor Drinkwater, CEO of ARC Entertainment, said, “We have been inundated with requests from around the country to have the film play in their market. Our expansion plan is being methodically analyzed and managed to allow the film to be viewed by the widest audience in the most effective manner.”

This coming Friday the film will play in the following AMC theatres:

Ahwatukee 24 4915 East Ray Road Phoenix, AZ  85044
Arizona Center 24 565 N. 3rd Street Phoenix, AZ  85004
Barrett Commons 24 Theatres 2600 Cobb Place Lane NW Kennesaw, GA  30144

West Oaks 14 9415 West Colonial Drive Ocoee, FL  34761
Willowbrook 24 Theatres 17145 Tomball Parkway Houston, TX  77064

“We are thrilled that The Undefeated can benefit from the digital cinema platform to quickly expand to additional markets this weekend,” said Jonathan Dern, president of Cinedigm Entertainment Group.

Written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon and produced by Victory Film Group co-founder Glenn Bracken Evans and Dan Fleuette, “The Undefeated” was independently financed by Victory Film Group and its partners.

The film includes leading prominent political commentators Mark Levin, Tammy Bruce and Andrew Breitbart as well as conservative activists Kate Obenshain, Sonnie Johnson and Jamie Radtke. Additionally, the film features interviews with Alaskan civil servants, elected officials and advisors who were involved in Alaskan politics during Governor Palin’s tenure.

“After the incredible feedback we got from enthusiastic audiences, we are very excited to bring this story of a true American hero to additional audiences across America,” said Glenn Bracken Evans.

C'mon guys! Run this film in a few Northeastern theaters.

I don't know what kind of boxoffice it would draw, but it would sure be fun flippin' off the inevitable leftist protesters outside the theater.

“A point that many of the “concerned” posters here don’t seem to grasp.”

And one might even think that by such a calculated rollout someone was creating demand via limited supply.

Keeps the per theater numbers high - which creates more buzz - which creates more demand...and thus leads to an even larger rollout to a ready and waiting customer base... And keeping it out there in the public eye over a longer period of time...which keeps the discussion going...which leads more people to want to see it... which Nah...that couldn’t be it... ;)

There were times these last 3 weeks where it felt like we were trying to make some fish and a couple loaves of bread go an awful long way.

But 3 weeks of: boots on the ground, fingers on the keyboard, and good old fashioned volunteerism paid off big time this weekend!

Victory Film Group's The Undefeated opened on Friday July 15, 2011 and ended up having an average gross of $6570 per theater.

If that wasn't enough...

And, from conservatives4palin.com:

Look, you can't expect The Undefeated to blow the doors off anywhere it goes. That won't happen. Bannon chose NOT to publicize this film. 

What this film is deliberately designed to do is to affect the Republican Primary Race. That's what it's for.

And it will serve, possibly, to start a conversation among independents who have doubts about Obama and who are looking for an alternative. Sarah is not considered a possibility among them right now, but when she announces, people will want to take a look at this film.

Palin knows how good this film is, which is why she is tying it to fundraising.

Nevertheless, studios like the Weinstein Group are not lining up behind it as they did with 9/11 because they don't have skin in the anti-Bush game the way they did with Michael Moore. Bushhate sold a lot of coin in 2004.

I am happy to see it’s being expanded to more cities.... but come on! Alabama was one of the top 5 states that supported mccain/PALIN in 2008. Higher than Texas or Georgia, the two closest states to Alabama that are showing the film. In fact, in two of the three new markets, North Carolina and Wisconsin went for 0bammy in 2008- or is that all part of Bannon’s strategery?

I guess I’m just donating 100 bucks to SarahPac to get to see it.

IMO That discussion is the beauty of it all. I imagine Bannon could have gotten the finding for spam-level advertizing, or at least a significant amount, but the ‘word of mouth’ aspect feeds into development of the discussion and stretches the process out.

The movie advertized like every other would not have nearly the effect of the ‘grass roots’ approach regarding the strategic aspect. Rather than in and out of theaters in a couple weeks like a ‘regular’ movie, that ‘staying power’ he seems to be going for will contribute far more than raw cash to the effect he wants.

Perhaps I’m wrong, but that’s my take on it.

From conservatives4palin.com:
IsraeliCojones Yesterday 06:24 PM

ACTION ALERT!

Rate "The Undefeated" on IMDB!
A reminder of what IMDB is:
#38 global site, #25 US site, 57 millions unique users per month.
IOW, a HUGE site, extremely influential to all movie-goers and movie-fans around the world.
The Undefeated is still rated there at 1.5.
But since yesterday we are gaining ground:
- the "1" votes are 166 (66%)
- the "10" votes are 76 (30%)
As you can see, the Opposition is still adamant about dragging the film down (almost a 100 more "1" since yesterday). They know that the site is influentual. So there's still got some work at hand.

Now, it's a matter of "who's got the numbers" (I know we do) and who will blink first (I know we won't).
Please go there: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1961604
- RATE the film, by scrolling your mouse on the stars under the title, and click on the rate you wish (a "10" would be a good idea);
this procedure is the most important and it takes one second.

- vote up good reviews;
- vote down bad reviews (this is important, because the review with the best average gets displayed on the main page)
- post a review if you can;
- pass the link on FB, twitter, and every site you know, and tell them to rate the film.
- while you're at it, rate up Bannons's films: he really deserves it.
Fight the Propaganda Machine.
There's a campaign coming.

You can do it, Palin Patriots!

This is all about promoting the video. Dozens of theaters at $5000 per day is nothing compared to when this hits Amazon on DVD for $20. (Not to mention $100 per copy to donors to the PAC, probably about the time she announces).

I’ll predict that Palin is brilliantly creating a desirable, high-value donation premium.

Talk about proving a major point of the movie.

The mush brained leftist mob, just as the muslims, responded with vitriol thinking that we will be intimidated.

Too stupid to realize that their reaction merely adds steel to our resolve and commitment to take back our country.

The day will come when their continued provocation will call up whirlwinds that will sweep them away.

The formula is simple. Obviously, the doc needs to be in more theaters. If a Palin supporter invites at least one person they know who tends to believe the media meme about Palin, her high unfavorables will diminish significantly.

For those who are not in a market where it will be seen, the DVD will be bought by supporters and those supporters can have viewing parties with a number of non-supporters invited to attend.

Unconventional campaign? You betcha!

In Houston, they’re moving the film 30 miles from a blue area of town out to a heavily Republican area with a good mix of Tea Party types and country clubbers.

I love this phased rollout strategy that builds interest in lieu of big $ advertising. Bannon and his partners are no dummies. I hope they get very rich from this.

Debut of Sarah Palin doc ‘The Undefeated’ delayed a week in valley

http://www.mydesert.com/article/20110719/NEWS0301/107190306/Debut-Sarah-Palin-doc-Undefeated-delayed-week-valley

Coachella Valley residents hoping to catch the documentary on former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will have to wait.

Film distributors on Monday notified Cinemas Palme d’Or that they’d open “The Undefeated” this coming weekend — only to decide hours later that the local premiere would be pushed back a week.

The local debut will now be held during the July 29 weekend in Palm Desert, a Republican- dominated city that counts Palin’s own in-laws as part-time residents.

“We were anxious for the opportunity to play something completely different than what we usually do,” Cinémas Palme d’Or co-owner Brian Tabor said.

This is only a question because I’m unfamiliar with Alabama politics; if Alabama was so supportive of the McPalin ticket, why have there only been three republican governors since the 1870s?

But IMDB just posted MY (very positive) review:

0 out of 3 people found the following review useful:
Discover the REAL Sarah Palin!, 19 July 2011
10/10
Author: RonDog from United States

Wow. I just got to see this amazing movie in Orange, CA last Friday.

While I consider myself to be fairly well-informed, and thought that I already knew quite a bit about Governor Palin, this extraordinary movie helped me to discover the REAL "Sarah Palin" -- someone with a depth of character, and a level of personal commitment to the citizens of Alaska that even I had never seen before.

Forget the "cartoon" version of Sarah Palin being promoted by so many in the media.

This powerfully effective movie shows a woman who is certainly NOT the "Caribou Barbie" -- who "does not read newspapers" and "can see Russia from her house" -- that they WISH she was.

Invest two hours of your life with this fast-paced, uplifting documentary, and discover FOR YOURSELF why so many people love this woman!.

I should mention that based on my observations, a "9" vote will move the average up more than a "10" vote. This is because of the algorithm imdb uses to figure its "weighted average." It is supposed to discourage just what the libs are now doing -- stuffing the ballot box with "1's." If I am right, then once a substantial number of votes are tallied, the "1's" and the "10's" will be weighted less -- and a "9" will carry more weight.

It appears that you are correct!

From www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?ratingsexplanation:

Weighted Average Ratings

IMDb publishes weighted vote averages rather than raw data averages.

Various filters are applied to the raw data in order to eliminate and reduce attempts at 'vote stuffing' by individuals more interested in changing the current rating of a movie than giving their true opinion of it.

The exact methods we use will not be disclosed. This should ensure that the policy remains effective. The result is a more accurate vote average.


I wonder if I can go back, and CHANGE my rating to a 9...

Thanks!

Now, we just have to wait for the ratings score to be updated -- perhaps TOMORROW?

A point that many of the "concerned" posters here don't seem to grasp.

Quit trying to manage the people. They will make the right decision every time given the opportunity to do so.

In my case I live 2 blocks from a modern AMC theater. I will attend nothing there until this movie is listed. Then I will bring a hundered friends and neighbors to see it round the clock.

How do you get a heads up when it’s in your area (in my case NW Washington)?

It’s hard to rate a movie you have never seen, nor are likely to ever get to see. Us folks out here in rural “fly-over” country will be lucky if this movie comes within 500 miles of where we live (just like Atlas Shrugged).

Exactly. I’m not going to rate a movie blindly just because it may reflect my views. That’s the kind of thing liberals do and that is why we end up with the “unexpected” results of Obama.

My $100 has already gone out, but they say we won’t get the DVD until after the theater run. Bummer.
