Eurocinema strikes Miramax VoD deal
VoD network Eurocinema has signed a multi-year deal with Miramax to bring European films to North American audiences. Separately, Brainstorm Media will curate a monthly horror series in a Fangoria VOD folder.
The Eurocinema-Miramax deal kicks off on Mar 15 with Malena starring Monica Bellucci [pictured], About Adam with Kate Hudson, Daughter Of D’Artangnan with Sophie Marceau and Dirty Pretty Things starring Audrey Tatou.
April’s line-up includes The Diving Bell And The Butterfly, I’m Not Scared, Kinky Boots and With A Friend Like Harry.
New Miramax titles will be made available each month at a price point ranging from $3.95-$4.99.
“Eurocinema’s partnership with Miramax is unprecedented,” said Eurocinema chairman and CEO Sebastien Perioche. “Never before will such a high quality and diversified collection of world screen gems be available in one place and on demand. Eurocinema has become the go-to destination for fans of European cinema.”
Beverly Hills-based Brainstorm Media’s Fangoria Presents titles will be distributed by iN DEMAND and made available on all major satellite, telephone and internet platforms.
Each monthly folder will highlight a different theme and will include one new Fangoria Presents title as well as a unique collection of classic horror titles.
The first month’s folder entitled Gory Getaways And Vicious Vacations features cult favorites like Motel Hell, Howling II: Your Sister Is A Werewolf and Troll 2.
The company is also releasing its Fangoria Presents selections on DVD. Volume One includes Inhuman Resources, Axed, Sin Reaper, Entity and Germ Z.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to curate a destination for horror fans that captures the spirit of Fangoria Magazine,” said rainstorm’s Meyer Shwarzstein. “The magazine created special mini-mags for us to package with the DVDs and all of the major platforms are featuring the new Mike Miller artwork. We’re having fun with this.”
“This will be the go-to place for lovers of horror and fans of Fangoria entertainment,” added Thomas DeFeo of Fangoria Magazine. “No more searching around using the alphabet or trying to remember a title. We are pulling films that we know our audience will love watching again and again.”
