European Turks awaiting release of new Kurtlar Vadisi hit
"Kurtlar Vadisi: Irak " is ranked at #4, "Kurtlar Vadisi: Muro" at #8 on the all-time box office grossing domestic chart in Turkiye. Now fans - and exhibitors - are awaiting the three film in the blockbuster series: "Kurtlar Vadisi: Gladio". The action drama opens on 20 November 2009 in Turkiye with Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and the UK close around that date.
The first film, "KV: Irak" or "Valley of the Wolves", opened on 3 Feb 2006 and is considered a major blockbuster for Turkiye.
The second in the series, "KV: Muro", opened on 5 Dec 2008 and was considered controversial by some. Some exhibitors in European countries boycotted the first film as they felt it was too propoganda filled. But the sequel opened at #2 and went on to become one of Turkiye's top ten releases of all time.
