Animal House: Bluto Blutarsky returns to the cinema!
Animal Housethe cult film of John Landis returns to theaters from 8 June distributed by Academy Two. The comedy, launching John Belushi’s career, will be playing in theaters and arenas throughout the summer. A great opportunity to see, in the original subtitled version and on the big screen, one of the funniest films in the history of cinema, included among the 100 best comedies of all time by the American Film Institute. Landis’ film, released in America on July 28, 1978 and in Italy only a few months later, tells the story of the rivalry between two brotherhoods. On one side the Omegas, beautiful rich and lucky and on the other side the Deltas, penniless, without rules and revelers. The film, which started with a very small budget of only 3 million dollars, has grossed 50 times that amount worldwide, becoming the college movie par excellence. John Landis explained, many years later, his theory on the success of Animal House: “The film tells a special moment in life, the first time you’re away from home and you have all that freedom. People look back on that period fondly and we captured it right.”
