Deadpool was the #1 film in every country except one - Poland - where it settled for second place behind Planeta Singli (Planet Single) - written by Attackships creatives Sam Akina and Jules Jones, and directed by Mitja Okorn. Planet Single was in its second weekend of release and experienced a 150% boost in attendance over the holiday weekend bolstered by positive word of mouth and near unanimous critical praise.
Check out some articles on the film here and here. Planet Single is the second film written by Sam Akina and Jules Jones and directed by Mitja Okorn that has been a blockbuster success in Poland. The first film, Letters to Santa (Listy do M.) is one of Poland's highest grossing films of all time.
Planet Single (Planeta Singli) a romantic comedy written by Sam Akina and Jules Jones, and directed by Mitja Okorn for Gigant Films has premiered in Warsaw, Poland. The film is the second feature collaboration between Okorn, Akina and Jones. Their first collaboration, Letters to Santa (Listy do M.) was one of the highest grossing films in Polish history. (the sequel to that project, Lisy do M. 2, IS the highest grossing Polish film of all time). Planet Single is a modern tale of internet romance starring Maciej Stuhr as the cynical host of a popular yet controversial sketch comedy show who strikes a deal with a prudish music teacher (Agnieszka Więdłocha) to lampoon her dating life on national television. The film also stars Tomasz Karolak and Weronika Książkiewicz as a couple in a tempestuous relationship that is exacerbated when their tech savvy daughter (Joanna Jarmołowicz) uses the titular Tinder-esque app to play them against each other. Planet Single opens in theaters across Poland on Feb 5th. Check out our pic from the premier as well as the latest trailer below!

Their excitement and enjoyment speak volumes to Kemyst's craft as a live performer.
