Super summer at the cinemas

Lots of rain, chilly temperatures and two blockbuster films have filled cinemas in Norway this summer, especially in Oslo. Some cinema managers even had to interrupt their own summer holidays to come help out with ticket- and popcorn sales.

Most all showings of the new films Barbie and Oppenheimer have been sold out. The so-called “Barbenheimer” effect “has clearly struck a nerve,” said the director of cinema firm Film & Kino, Espen Lundberg Pedersen.

The third major film released this summer, Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning, also drew crowds, in part because some of it was filmed in Norway. Many Norwegians were disappointed once again, however, when they saw the spectacular scenery of Norway’s Romsdalen area portrayed as being in Austria. Norwegian viewers of an earlier Mission Impossible filmed at Norway’s popular mountain plateau known as Preikestolen were also startled and disappointed to find it portrayed as being in Pakistan.
