StudioCanal strikes big Block deal with Sony
The SXSW hit film was acquired by SPWA earlier this year for the US and will be released there via Screen Gems.
The larger SPWA deal comes just as Joe Cornish’s film is to open in the UK on Friday.
Nick Frost, Jodie Whittaker and Luke Treadaway star in the sci-fi action-comedy film set in South London where a gang defends its patch from alien invasion.
StudioCanal subsidiary Optimum is releasing the film in the UK. The only territories remaining available are Spain, Italy, Korea and Japan with StudioCanal’s Harold van Lier expecting to be sold out by the end of the market.
