Faith-Fueled Underdog Story Ranks 2nd in Per-Screen Average

LOS ANGELES – Oct. 9, 2013 –  Scoring second place in per-screen average at the national box office—topping $11,000 per screen—this weekend LINSANITY, the story of Jeremy Lin, the Asian-American NBA star’s life and faith, races into new screens.

LINSANITY captures the passion, hard work and faith that define Jeremy’s life story,” said Gareth West, CEO of Ketchup Entertainment. “We’re thrilled audiences and critics are embracing it.”

Rotten Tomatoes gave LINSANITY a “fresh” rating with critics saying:

  • “An example of long-term documentary filmmaking paying off in ways few could have anticipated, LINSANITY energetically recounts Jeremy Lin’s astonishing rise to NBA stardom.”
    Variety
  • “You may have watched Lin’s rise to national prominence the first time, but it’s still easy to get caught up in the moment.”
    San Francisco Chronicle
  • “The events leading to this media-fueled frenzy and the genial, low-key underdog at its epicenter are given a peppy workout by director Evan Jackson Leong in the enjoyable documentary.”
    Los Angeles Times

Directed by Evan Jackson Leong and narrated by Hawaii Five-O’s Daniel Dae Kim, LINSANITY follows an undersized California kid—a child of Taiwanese immigrants—who loved hoops fiercely and refused to give up. It also shows the faith and family that sustained and guided a young Asian-American through physical and societal obstacles and past heartbreaking setbacks.

WHAT OTHERS SAY:

  • “It was fun, inspiring and entertaining.”
    Francis Chan
    Best-selling author of Crazy Love, Forgotten God and Erasing Hell
  • “Inspiring! Filled with great lessons about trusting in God and pursuing God’s will with passion.”

    Ted Baehr’s Movieguide®
  • “I loved LINSANITY . . . Don’t miss it!”
