may be a big star in Hollywood action-adventures but Drift
, the Australian surfing- set drama in which he co-stars with Myles Pollard
and Xavier Samuel
, has had a limited release in the Us.
Wrekin Hill Entertainment, which bought North American rights last September
, launched the film at 11 cinemas on August 2, a month after the title debuted on Video-on-Demand platforms.
The Us critics gave the film featuring Pollard and Samuel as brothers who build a surfboard/surfwear business in the 1970s, with Worthington as their hippie photographer mate, a cool reception.
As of today, the distributor had not reported any figures to Rentrak, Box Office Mojo, The Numbers or other web sites which track the Us box-office.
Australian films released in Us cinemas and on VoD platforms have not fared well this year. Mental
earned just $18,000 in ticket sales and 100 Bloody Acres made $6,000, according to Box Office Mojo.
