For North American fans, this film is still scheduled for a three-city release on October 8 (NY, LA and Toronto).  An 800 screen release is scheduled for October 31.   Concerned it won’t be shown in your area?  Want to know what you can do to bring it to your city?

While we have already given you the chance to voice your disappointment over the limited wide release last month, at this point, the most proactive thing you can do is to contact your local theaters (independent theaters are usually the ones to contact) and film clubs to inquire about getting RockNRolla in your hometown!  Even if only 800 theaters get the film on October 31, those 800 prints can rotate across the nation after the 31st if you can generate the interest for the film in your areas.  It worked for Dear Frankie, it can work for this!
