The Asif Kapadia project has now become the highest-grossing homegrown documentary in the market after it pulled in $580,000 from movie theatres in its opening weekend.
The release is set to go nationwide in the USA this weekend and chronicles the star’s rise to fame and her tragic passing at the age of 27.
The Hollywood Reporter adds:
“We are thrilled that audiences have come out en masse during a period of exceptionally fine weather to see Amy,” said Hamish Moseley, head of distribution at Altitude, which is handling the release. “It is testament to not only an incredible film, from some of the U.K’s leading filmmakers, but also to the unique talent and enormous lasting appeal of Amy Winehouse – we are delighted that audiences have chosen to celebrate the life of the truly talented musical icon.”
