After more than 3 weeks of premiere in Vietnam, Face Off 6: The Ticket Of Destiny achieved a resounding success, becoming the film that sells the most tickets of the Face Off series.

In total, the film will be available in 52 cinemas in the US - a desirable number of Vietnamese films when they are released in foreign markets. Face Off 6 is also the fastest Vietnamese movie to hit theaters in the US - in just 4 weeks since its premiere in Vietnam.
This is the third time a Face Off film has been released in the US after Face Off 4: The Walking Guests in 2019 and Face Off 5: 48 Hours in 2021. Face Off 6 is also the movie that is shown in the most places in the US with 52 theaters.

Ly Hai's film achievements
Talking about the success of Face Off 6, director Ly Hai said, "It is a great pride and happiness for me as well as for the crew. I'm still trying to take Face Off further not only the US but also Asia, Europe, Australia. Hopefully one day, not only my films but also Vietnamese films in general will be released simultaneously in many other countries".
Ly Hai said that in order for the film to be screened in the US market - the world's largest film market, it must go through many stages, meeting strict requirements.
Publishers and crews need to complete the film carefully and check all standards related to sound, images, and subtitles.
Previously, director Ly Hai and his crew succeeded in bringing Face Off 4 and Face Off 5 to the international audience. Therefore, Face Off 6 has more advantages when being released by foreign cinema clusters.
