Phoenix, AZ – September 2nd – “Ride The Thunder” soared in it’s initial limited theatrical release in eight cities. The Premiere of “Ride The Thunder” in California shocked the film industry by being #1 in the Nation in box office revenue on a per theater basis.* In each of the other opening cities, “Ride The Thunder” consistently beat most of the big Hollywood blockbusters at the box office and running multiple weeks at each theater.
Richard Botkin, Executive Producer and author of the book that this Vietnam War movie is based on exclaimed, “People want to see the truth, they want to see a pro-American film that honors the heroes and exposes the bad guys, and YES, America is exceptional!” Director Fred Koster stated, “When we premiered in California, show after show was sold out.
