"I have already dipped my toe in the waterwith the theatrical re-issue of films including Metropolis, Vengeance Is Mine, and Punishment Park.Based on the success of these titles I realised that it made sense toexpand Eureka's horizons further in this direction, and when I saw Junebug Iimmediately realised its potential," said Eureka's Ron Benson.
