‘Little Rascals’ rules at Danish B.O.

World Brief

Danish director Giacomo Campeotto’s feature debut, “The Little Rascals,” has rocketed to the top of the local charts, taking 233,000 admissions and $1.8 million at the box office since its Oct. 10 premiere.

“Reviews were mixed, but the film seems to please children and grownups, so word of mouth has worked wonders,” explained producer Nina Crone, whose Crone Film backed the $1.9 million kidpic with commercial broadcaster TV2/Danmark and the Danish Film Institute.

“Little Rascals” is the story of a new kid on the block who leads the other children in the fight against a tyrannical caretaker.

Also handling international sales, Crone Film will launch the film at Berlin’s Kinderfilmfest.

SF Film/Filmcompagniet released the pic domestically on 100 prints. “Our first estimate was a total of 300,000 admissions,” said publicity manager Camilla Baggesen. “Now I think we are looking at this year’s Danish top grosser.”
