Life in a Fishbowl Conquers X-Men After Slaying Godzilla at the Icelandic box office

One week after slaying Hollywood blockbuster Godzilla (2014), critically acclaimed Icelandic film Life in a Fishbowl has followed up by conquering another Tinseltown juggernaut to retain its box-office top spot.  Writer/director Baldvin Zophoníasson aka Baldvin Z’s massively popular €2.7m drama (Icelandic title Vonarstræti) easily beat X-Men: Days of Future Past .  The film, inspired by true events, stars Thorsteinn Bachmann (The Deep), Hera Hilmarsdóttir (Anna Karenina, Da Vinci’s Demons) and Thorvaldur Kristjánsson (Black’s Game, Dracula Untold) in a tale of three different worlds which collide violently.  Composer Ólafur Arnalds (who won a BAFTA award for UK TV series Broadchurch) wrote the score.
