More than 2, 500 people have watched “Click Click Bang” movie so far according to Phil-it Productions co-founder Abel Mutua.
Speaking in an interview on Radio Citizen, Mutua, who founded the company with Philip Karanja, said the recently premiered movie has broken Kenyan record by hitting the numbers in just three days and pulling almost three million in the process.
“Kenyans turned out in such large numbers, we had four screenings and we had 2,500 people. That has never happened in this country before, we shattered a record there. There is no better feeling than that,” he explained.
Mutua went on to say the movie’s demand has shot up and they’ll put up a link for people to watch who are not in Nairobi. It cost them Ksh 6 million and Mutua is confident they’ll recoup the money.
He said that his team is already working on another movie that will premier in November.
“I know consistency will take us to the next level, and with that said, the next film is already in the works. We will meet again in November,” he added.
Click Click Bang is based on a true story narrated by Abel Mutua on one of his ‘Young & Stupid’ YouTube series episodes.
Its cast features top Kenyan actors such as Isaboke Nyakundi, Shigwan Shiqo, Jacky Vike (Awinja), and even rapper Khaligraph Jones who makes an acting debut. In addition to the amazing cast, the film’s music production has H_art The Band’s magical touch.
It premiered on July 15th at the Nairobi Cinema where several celebs and big wigs attended.
Mutua’s last film A Grand Little Lie grossed over Sh4 million within the first 4 days from the purchase of over 20,000 watch links, an innovation that has helped creators sell their content directly to consumers.
