THE GENIUS CLUB is the #2 FILM AT THE BOX OFFICE IN MEXICO CITY

This past weekend, ‘The Genius Club’ (‘Duela De Genios’) was the #2 independent film in Mexico City (Sept 21-23) and #5 overall (out of 40 movies). Only ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’, ‘Resident Evil’, and ‘Underdog’ beat us. We were in the 16 biggest theaters throughout Mexico City (Population: 22 million).

It caught our distributor, Cien Films, completely off guard.

The toughest film critics gave our film a thumbs up, with Milenio newspaper giving ‘The Genius Club’ 4.5 out of 5 stars. This is the same paper that has done no-holds bar critiques on Alfonso Cuarón (“The Children of Men”), Alejandro Iñárritu (“Babel”), and Guillermo del Toro’s (Pan Labyrtinth) movies.

The best part was the director, Tim Chey, being able to tell the reporters that the world’s problems ARE solvable and how God changed Mr. Chey’s life – it was phenomenal to say the least. We were featured in the largest newspapers, national TV, and even Rolling Stone. They told us they never saw a movie that discussed God intellectually.

At the screenings, people were seen literally weeping as they came out. It was infectious. Countless people approached us after our screenings to say how they cried and how much the film made them think about their lives, death, and God.

We’ve attached some press photos of our screenings, etc.

May the Lord bless each of you mightily as he has us!

NOW THERE’S AN IDEA: ‘The Genius Club,’ writer-producer Tim Chey’s unique movie, in which a demented soul has a nuclear bomb set to go off on Christmas day — unless the President of the United States and a group of the world’s greatest minds can come up with solutions to the world’s problems in one single night. We’re told those problems include hunger, war, cancer, terrorism, the meaning of life, rush hour traffic, and jerks.
