Written by Gyorgy Karpati

A Kind of America 2 (www.valamiamerika2.hu), the sequel of the last decade's most successful Hungarian movie, opens in Hungary on December 18.

The editing of the film was finished in record time, so that the production would be released before Christmas. The post-production was made with the Avid Media Composer software and AVID DNA facilities.

The production company of the sequel is again Skyfilm (www.skyfilm.hu). The film shot over 34 days, with 3 days in New York City. The budget of the movie was 1.4 million euros , with 730,000 euros from the Motion Picture Public Foundation of Hungary (www.mmka.hu) and the rest from sponsors.

The expectations are great in Hungary, no surprise because the A Kind of America was the most successful movie of the decade in Hungary with the total attendance 540,000 and the soundtrack won a gold record in 2002.

The Hungarian distributor of the movie is the Budapest Film Zrt. (www.budapestfilm.hu), and the movie will be released throughout the country with 40 prints and also in DCI HD format in four cinemas.
