Apollo 18, I Don’t Know How She Does It, Piranha 3DD among acquisitions from TWC.
UK outfit Entertainment Film Distributors has a packed autumn slate, including a host of acquisitions from The Weinstein Company and big name titles from EuropaCorp and Lakeshore Entertainment.
Entertainment kicks off its impressive September schedule with Timur Bekmambetov’s found footage-style sci-fi-thriller Apollo 18 (Sept 2), a pickup from TWC, and follows in consecutive weekends with EuropaCorp’s big budget action-thriller Colombiana starring Zoe Saldana [pictured], and TWC’s comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It, starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Pierce Brosnan and Greg Kinnear.
Previously announced acquisition The Killer Elite, starring Jason Statham, Robert De Niro and Clive Owen goes out on Sept 23, with Shark Night 3D released one week later.
The UK outfit has also taken horror sequel Piranha 3DD from TWC, set for a November 25 release, and the fourth instalment in the popular Underworld franchise from Lakeshore Entertainment/Screen Gems, set for a Jan 2012 debut.
In the meantime, Entertainment is set for an intriguing battle with Paramount in mid August when it goes up against Cowboys and Aliens with UK hit TV series adaptation The Inbetweeners and Spy Kids: All The Time In The World, which will use Aroma-scope, onscreen signals to prompt the audience to smell scents on a special card.
Disney had released the previous two films in the Spy Kids franchise in the UK, the last of which grossed over £7m in 2003.
