3D Nutcracker by Konchalovsky to Premiere in Russia
Director: Andrey Konchalovskiy
Writer: Andrey Konchalovskiy
Studio: Freestyle Releasing
Cast: Elle Fanning, John Turturro, Nathan Lane
Andrei Konchalovsky’s new film The Nutcracker in 3D goes on general release in Russia from the first day of the New Year.
The Nutcracker mainly features foreign actors, but Konchalovsky's wife Julia Vysotskaya plays the Mom and the Fairy.
American viewers already had time to watch The Nutcracker in December. However, in the USA the film was no success commercially and, moreover, was crushed by critics. “Critics attacked the film, I had not even expect it”, Andrei Konchalovsky mentioned. In his opinion, the reason of this failure is that there are lots of American films released before Christmas in the USA, and critics appear to be more loyal to them. However, the film director does not lose hope that The Nutcracker in 3D will be a success in Russia, Europe and Asia.
