Fortunately, the producers have decided to release the movie in international theaters owing to its enormous success! AMC theaters have confirmed that Sisu will debut in cinemas globally, including in the US, on April 28, 2023.
Sisu features the story of a gold digger, Aatami Korpi, who hopes to find gold during the Lapland War. His hard work finally pays off when he discovers a massive repository of gold! He must deliver his gold to a bank, with the nearest one being over five hundred miles away. His journey is long and hard, and things get even worse as SS Obersturmführer Bruno Helldorf leads a thirty-person Nazi extermination squad against Aatami. A heart-stopping and thrilling chase begins, and Aatami must combine all his strength and willpower to wage war against his powerful enemies.
Just like the Sisu release date has been announced, its official plot has also been shared. The plot for Sisu reads,
“During the last desperate days of WWII, a solitary prospector (Jorma Tommila) crosses paths with Nazis on a scorched-earth retreat in northern Finland. When the Nazis steal his gold, they quickly discover that they have just tangled with no ordinary miner. While there is no direct translation for the Finnish word “sisu,” this legendary ex-commando will embody what Sisu means: a white-knuckled form of courage and unimaginable determination in the face of overwhelming odds. And no matter what the Nazis throw at him, the one-man death squad will go to outrageous lengths to get his gold back – even if it means killing every last Nazi in his path.”
Since the original Sisu release date was September 2022, we already have a confirmed list of all the actors starting in the Finnish movie. The list includes,
