ALONE YET NOT ALONE OPENS
AS TOP THREE BOX OFFICE HIT THIS WEEKEND

First Major Motion Picture Release From Enthuse Entertainment
Proves To Be Family-Favorite Amongst Theatergoers

 

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (October 1, 2013) – Enthuse Entertainment’s riveting family-friendly drama, Alone Yet Not Alone, became the highest grossing movie this weekend in terms of per screen average (combining theater ticket sales with Seatzy ticket sales), reaching $13,396 per screen in its limited opening in Grand Rapids, Mich., Franklin, Tenn., San Antonio, Texas, Houston, Texas, Dallas, Texas, Knoxville, Tenn., Raleigh-Durham, N.C., Atlanta, Ga., and Colorado Springs, Colo. This per screen average dwarfed the screen average of most other wide release movies, including Enough Said (which did $9,238 per screen) and Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2 (which did $8,439 per screen), ranking Alone Yet Not Alone as one of the highest per screen average independently released faith-based films to date.

While national box office reporting companies report a smaller number per screen officially (showing the film #5 nationwide), the film's ticket pre-sales campaign through Seatzy (an online ticketing reservation service), Christian radio stations and local Christian churches and ministries pushed sales way beyond theater chain expectations.

"We are thrilled with the box office results for Alone Yet Not Alone," says Jeannie Deibis, buyer, Celebration Cinema chain . "We hope to play the film again in February, and are really excited about the pre-sales campaign, clearly it works! We did 45% in Seatzy pre-sales, and 55% in walk up business."

Depicting a family at a critical juncture in America’s history, the blockbuster hit is based on the true story taken from the novel of the same name written by Tracy Leininger Craven and features an experienced team of production executives, cast, and crew. The flagship production stars Kelly Greyson (Return To The Hiding Place) with Jenn Gotzon (God’s Country, Frost Nixon) and actor/musical artist Clay Walker (Clay Walker: Jesse James).

Alone Yet Not Alone is designed to encourage and uplift families in difficult times and tells the inspiring story of Barbara and Regina Leininger and their journey of faith and survival during the French & Indian war in 1755. Captured by the Delaware Indians in a raid on their home and transported over 300 miles of wilderness to Ohio, the sisters are sustained only by their abiding trust in God, and their hope of escape against all odds to be reunited with their family.

A movie filled with action, drama and suspense, Alone Yet Not Alone was filmed on location at historical sites in Tennessee, Virginia, Pennsylvania and North Carolina to allow audiences to take the journey with the characters. Filmmakers realized that in order to tell the story authentically, they would need to shoot where the events actually happened or those similar in terrain.

Highlighting themes of endurance, perseverance and faith with positive values and entertaining action sequences that make it safe viewing for families, the film recently garnered the "Family-Friendly Seal" (12+ years) with a five Dove rating from the prestigious Dove Foundation, an organization that provides online family movie and video reviews and ratings.

Enthuse chose to release Alone Yet Not Alone through a new revolutionary movie ticket reservation platform and film distribution company called Seatzy™ (www.seatzy.com/alone). Seatzy allows moviegoers to participate in the process of supporting the films they love by getting ticket reservations in early and assuring the film will play in the theater closest to them.

With its recent box office success, plans are currently underway to roll out a nationwide release of the family-favorite film on February 21, 2014 with opening cities to be announced at a later date.

NATALIE RACOOSIN (YOUNG BARBARA)

NATALIE RACOOSIN has been working toward her dream of an acting career since she was 11. At 15, her credits already include many fine projects: A LITTLE CLOSER, an award-winning independent film endorsed by Martin Scorsese; ALONE YET NOT ALONE, where she co-stars as young Barbara Leininger, whose faith sustains her through years of brutal captivity; the Emmy award-nominated PBS' THE ABOLITIONISTS; and the historical, THE WRECK OF LABELLE, in which Natalie uses her French language skills.

Natalie enjoys academics, particularly her language studies in French, Spanish, Japanese and Korean. Natalie continues to donate money to support orphans in Burundi, Africa. Including building a house and helping with supplies at a school the orphans attend.

 

CLAY WALKER (FRITZ)

Certain artists just seem to have an innate sense of what it takes to please an audience and Clay Walker just happens to be one of them. Whether on stage or in the recording studio, Walker never gives less than a hundred percent, and it's that kind of dedicated work ethic combined with God-given talent that have made him one of the most successful country acts of the past decade. He first topped the Billboard country singles chart in 1993 with "What's It to You" and followed with his second consecutive No. 1 hit, "Live Until I Die." Since then he's placed 31 titles on Billboard's singles chart including such additional chart toppers as "Dreaming with my Eyes Open," "If I Could Make Living," "This Woman and This Man," and "Rumor Has It." He's scored four platinum-selling albums, but a modest Walker admits he had plenty of help looking for material for his eighth album, but the process still took longer than he'd anticipated. "There were people involved in the song search that I really, really respect." After recording six albums for Giant Records, and one on RCA, Walker recently signed with Curb/Sidewalk Records. After more than a decade in the national spotlight, Clay Walker believes the best is yet to come.

 

JENN GOTZON (LYDIA)

Raised in the suburbs of Allentown, PA, GOTZON has tirelessly pursued her passion for film acting to play complex characters who find hope in the climax of the storyline. She began performing right out of high school, appearing in murder mystery dinner theater, entertaining at Walt Disney World and competing in the Miss America pageant system. After studying at The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, GOTZON moved to Los Angeles and landed a string of bit parts in big productions like Ang Lee's HULK, Sundance pleaser 500 DAYS OF SUMMER, Sean William Scott starrer ROLE MODELS along with Emmy-winning TV series PUSHING DAISIES and HOUSE. GOTZEN received her big break in Ron Howard's 2009 Best Picture Oscar nominee FROST/NIXON, playing the president's daughter Tricia Nixon. Since then she has continued with a long line of socially relevant films that, like ALONE YET NOT ALONE, endeavor to make a difference in people's lives. GOTZON's ultimate passion is impacting and inspiring audiences through the message behind the roles she plays. With this goal, she developed a motivational mentor-outreach program, "Inspiring Audiences," through which she speaks to students, screens her movies and shares her testimony on overcoming life's obstacles with prayer and perseverance in hopes to encourage them to find their passion in life and live their dreams.

While continuing his martial arts training subsequent to his honorable discharge, Tony discovered acting and managed to land a role as an extra on ABC's hit television show LOST. After serving as Terry O'Quinn's Stand-In and given an opportunity to be a stuntman for the show, Tony knew this was his passion. He later moved to Virginia and began seriously pursuing his acting from there. His vast martial arts experience made him a shoe-in for the role of Hannawoa in ALONE YET NOT ALONE.
