Actor and director Danila Kozlovsky said on Instagram that his film “Chernobyl,” dedicated to the tragedy at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant (occurred on April 26, 1986), was released on the streaming service Netflix.
“Starting today, the movie “Chernobyl” is on Netflix. To be honest, we knew about this in the winter, long before the release. But only today our overseas partners allowed us to report this news,” Kozlovsky wrote.
The actor added that his film, which was released in Russia in mid-April this year, became one of the best-selling in the history of Russian cinema.
According to him, the film should be released in Japan, the United States, South Korea, some European and Baltic countries, China, some Latin American countries, and many others. And this, as Kozlovsky noted, is not all transactions, but only those that have already been concluded.
“The interest in the film is huge,” the director said. The drama “Chernobyl” tells the story of a young firefighter from Pripyat — Alexey Karpushin, who wants to start a new life in another city with his beloved girlfriend Olya (Oksana Akinshina) and her son Lesha (Peter Tereshchenko). However, the explosion of the fourth reactor threatens Karpushin’s dream. The main character becomes one of the liquidators of the accident and helps prevent another explosion.
