BRENDAN O’Carroll’s big screen version of the popular BBC series Mrs Brown’s Boys is predicted to be a box office hit in the UK, after it has reportedly sold £1m worth of advance tickets.
One of the stars of the film, Rory Cowan, is confident that the silver screen outing of Agnes Brown will be a success and anticipates that the film could fetch over £100m at the UK box office.
Skyfall is the current record holder, having grossed the same figure in 2012.
Cowan, who plays Mrs Brown's gay son, said to the Irish Daily Star, Rory: "Everybody is thinking it could be the biggest ever movie in the UK because it's a massive market for us and where we have most fans.
"Large fan clubs have been block-booking cinema seats by the dozens so that they can see it twice or three times possibly."
Last year, the BBC One Christmas Special of the series was the most watched show in both Britain and Ireland with 9.4m viewers, beating Downton Abbey and Doctor Who.
Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie hits the big screen in the UK on Friday 27 June.
