The upcoming film will make history as the first Vietnamese production to premiere simultaneously in North America, Europe, and Australia. This landmark release will bring Vietnamese cinema to audiences across three continents.

According to the Hollywood newspaper Deadline, distribution company 33888 Films will showcase the movie in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and several European countries, including the UK, Germany, France, Norway, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Poland.

In North America, the film is strategically set for release during Father’s Day week, a fitting time for a story that centers on family dynamics.

Directed by Ly Hai, the film tells the story of a 73-year-old single mother who has dedicated her life to raising her five children. When she suffers a broken leg in an accident, her only wish is to have her children by her side. However, each of them makes excuses and avoids taking responsibility.

This installment in the series takes a unique approach by exploring modern family issues, which has resonated with viewers who find it relatable and meaningful. The film has received acclaim for its honest portrayal of family dynamics in contemporary society.

With a gross revenue of VND461 billion (US$18.07 million) as of June, it is the second-highest-grossing Vietnamese film of all time, according to Box Office Vietnam. Even after a five-week theatrical run, the film remains in the top five most popular films, a testament to its enduring appeal.

Ly Hai’s “Face Off” series has been a remarkable success, with three out of six films crossing the VND100 billion (US$3.9 million) mark. “Face Off 5: 48 Hours” led the pack with VND156 billion (US$6.1 million), followed by “Face Off 4: The Walking Guest” with VND117.5 billion (US$4.5 million), and “Face Off 6: The Ticket of Destiny” raking in an impressive VND272 billion (US$11 million).

The franchise has collectively earned VND712 billion (US$27.8 million), solidifying its place as one of the most successful Vietnamese film series ever.
