The 101-Year-Old Man Sets New Box Office Record

The 101-Year-Old Who Skipped Out On The Bill And Disappeared has broken the box office record set by its Oscar nominated predecessor, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared.

Directed by Måns Herngren and Felix Herngren, The 101-Year-Old Man (Hundraettåringen som smet från notan och försvann) sold 74,562 tickets when it premiered on Christmas Day. This translates to 8,465,859 SEK in box office receipts and represents the biggest ever opening for a Swedish film.

Following on from the 2013 adaptation of Jonas Jonasson’s The 100-Year Old Man, The 101-Year-Old Man sees Allan Karlsson (Robert Gustafsson) get the spring back in his step after drinking Folk Soda. He then embarks on a new adventure which takes him around the World, where he is chased by the CIA, a Balinese debt collector and becomes an executive at a soft drink company.
