Deal covers 900 titles including Hammer and Icon films.
Repertory specialist distributor Park Circus has signed a deal to represent theatrical and non-theatrical licensing of the library of films controlled by Exclusive Media.
The deal covers almost 900 titles including films from the Hammer film library and from the recently acquired Icon Entertainment library.
They include new restorations of Terence Fisher’s The Mummy and The Curse of Frankenstein (now playing in the BFI Gothic season), plus titles such as Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ, Kenneth Branagh’s Henry V and Donnie Darko.
Nick Varley, Co-Founder and Managing Director said, “We are pleased to be working with Peter Naish and the team at Exclusive to bring this valuable and diverse range of films back to cinema audiences around the world. In addition to the many wonderful films this agreement allows us to make available to the public, as a long standing fan of the Hammer studio output, it is also a personal privilege to be able to work with Exclusive on those titles”.
Peter Naish, SVP Sales and Distribution, Exclusive Media, added, “Our archive of award winning, critically acclaimed, cult, and just downright entertaining films spans every genre. Whether it’s The Passion of the Christ at Easter, Sliding Doors on Valentine’s Day or a film from Hammer’s back catalogue at Halloween we are delighted to be able to make these screenings possible through Park Circus.”
