Kon-Tiki (trailer)

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this movie, at least on the behind-the-scenes side, is that while Kon-Tiki was indeed nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film at the recent ceremonies, this isn’t quite the same film. Because the film was shot twice at the same time: once in Norwegian (which is the version that was nominated), and once in English (which is the version that will get a U.S. release).

The Norwegian version has been doing gangbusters box office business in Scandanavia. If the English-language one does well globally, I wonder if this will become a new way of shooting films with aspirations of international success…
