Bollywood World.com

Opening in just 200 theaters nationwide Bollywood’s NM production of Kites managed to crack into the top ten of the U.S. Box Office take over the weekend. It is the first Indian film to do so.

The action packed, universal love story has now been screened in 37 countries. As we’ve been following for you here the film shot in New Mexico, Nevada and California.

Another solid NM flick, MacGruber also sits in the top 10 at #6 bringing in $4.1M playing on just over 2,000 screens.

Wholly New Mexico Film

Posted by on May 19, 2010 | One comment

Out of what is considered a shoestring budget of just $10M comes the Universal Studios release of the SNL based MacGruber.

Like fellow low budget, wholly NM film fare turned Oscar winner Crazy Heart, Mac’s Nuevo México backdrops lend our SW charm to the overall look and feel of the flick – whether doubling for downtown Houston or a nuclear bomb test field (hey wait a minute, oh yeah).

Mac may not be headed to the Academy, it is opening to low expectations – in the face of a perceived SNL movie curse, but hopefully it can make a dent in the box office this weekend and the Wholly New Mexico film train will get another boost.

With a tag line like, “MacGruber – The Ultimate Tool” and promises of “vulgar, crude, ridiculous, silly and very, very funny” how can we help but to get our Grube on!

From SXSW Music+Film+Interactive in Austin, TX director Jorma Taccone disclosed that it is indeed Will Forte taking to the keys to tweet as MacGruber, keep up with the silly now at Grubes69.

Mac opens wide this Friday!
