An Outstanding Opening for Børning in Norway!


At breakneck speed BØRNING slides straight to the Norwegian Top 10 list –
and this with smashing opening numbers!

BØRNING, the Norwegian street car racing comedy, produced by John M. Jacobsen (Troll Hunter, Max Manus), opened in Norway on Wednesday, August 13 and had more than155.000 admissions in less than a week. None of the THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS features has had such an outstanding opening in Norway so far.

– The numbers exceed all our expectations, and it’s nice to get this incredible confirmation of faith in this project, says producer John M. Jacobsen.

The film, directed by Hallvard Bræin, is the first Nordic high tech production of its kind, in the proud tradition of CANNONBALL RUN and SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT with an added touch of THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS and TAXI.

The cast includes renowned Norwegian stars such as Anders Baasmo Christiansen(Kon-Tiki), Jenny Skavlan (Dead Snow), Otto Jespersen (Troll Hunter) and Sven Nordin(Lilyhammer, Call Girl).
