It would be so cool if it would win again, after the documentary won one:



The 2 directors are really nice, level-headed guys, judging by the Q & A they did on Tuesday after the screening. They really did a fantastic job. Being nominated alone is already a boost for their career, but a win would be the ticket, and really let the saga of Kon Tiki live on.



While I loved the movie, I think it's going to be Amour for the foreign film Oscar tonight.

Amour won. I have a screener of the movie but never watched it. I'll kill to watch the new Thor. You guys near the film festivals are lucky to see it. Only once I flew to L.A. to watch Whale Rider. Ha then it was released in Hawaii 2 weeks later so I hope this film gets an American release. Congratulation guys for the nomination.

Haaaaahaaa! So funny: I totally agree, I repeatedly have compared the Kon Tiki Ocean CGI to "Life of Pi" - both equally succeed to convey the awesome power of the sea in a totally believable way.

Yeah, just got home after seeing the movie. The Weinstein all English version, no subtitles. It was great except for the Southeast Asians (Thai) as Polynesians. but at least they dressed them as Polynesians. I'd love to see that actor stand with a line of Polynesian NFL linemen, he'd be looking up at them . Great visuals however, either photography or computer effects. Good acting too. No wonder it was nominated, production values were very good and great screenplay. I know it wasn't easy making this movie, there were a lot of costs involved. But the producers were like Thor himself with a dream and they kept trudging along and also like the real Thor with its American release of his books & documentary the American release of this new film will finally give the producers some money for expenses.

The film played at the Spring addition of the Hawaii International Film Festival as the Opening film. Actually missed the opening because the stupid newspaper here always releases news the day of an important event or the day after not a couple days before so one could plan for it. So last Friday night at 8:05PM I was reading about the 8:00PM Kon Tiki Opening(I live a half hour out of town) GREAT! Fric'n paper! BUT also read they are going to show it again tonight. Set my alarm for it but didn't set the pre-warning alarm about the event. My smart phone's default warning is only 10 mins. ahead, it went off checked to see why, fric'n alarm I only have 10 mins. to get to town a half hour away. Missing the first 25 mins would still be worth it so I took off. While on the road I was checking on my cellphone for the location and if it was sold out or not. Don't try this at home folks. Anyway I couldn't read the little screen well, I didn't wreck and I found out I set my alarm 1/2 hour to early anyway so I got there with 3 mins. to spare BUT it was sold out BUT the next second they moved it into a bigger theater with 80 more seats. Got in! The tiki gods were with me as well as with Thor during 1947 I believe and as well with the production of this new movie.

We all like Thor Heyerdahl whether on a raft or in our car or in our heads will get to Polynesia, an actual island, a dark booth in a tiki bar or in our imaginations. Dream on all!

I concur. I just saw the new Kon Tiki again, with my dad in Hamburg this time, and it held up to a second viewing. I absolutely dig this movie.

Saw a trailer for this before the new Studio Ghibli film... can't wait to see it!

Spent some time on line googling it, saw some more trailers and behind the scenes/making of footage, and it looks fantastic!

Found out it gets a limited release on April 26th, not sure where it will be playing in the LA area yet, but we are definitely going to catch it in the theatre while we can!

Really well done. Just saw it today at the Mpls. Film Festival. Completely sold out for both shows. I highly recommend seeing it.

The movie's raft is in New York Harbor for the opening this weekend! Well, docked in Battery Park City actually. (Wait, there's a marina in Battery Park City?)
Anyway, here's the link, with pics:

If you're in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal or Ottawa you can win tickets to advance screenings of Kon-Tiki courtesy of the Norwegian embassy here. Locations and opening dates for those cities are listed there - no info on other Canadian cities. I suppose it depends how the film does in limited release if we get to see it on the big screen or have to wait til it's on dvd in places like Edmonton and Calgary.
