‘Another Round’

TrustNordisk has closed a number of new deals during Cannes Marche for Thomas Vinterberg’s Another Round, selected for the Cannes 2020 label.

Deals have been done with Japan (Klockworx), Australia (Umbrella Entertainment), China (Red Apollo), Mexico, Central America and Colombia (Gussi) and Brazil (Synapse/Vitrine).

The film will have its physical world premiere in Toronto; its Danish release is set for September 24. 

Written by Vinterberg and Tobias Lindholm, the film centres on four high-school teachers who test a theory that they will work and live better by maintaining a constant level of alcohol in their blood. Their initial results are positive with classes and results improving; however, as they continue the experiment the results become more extreme.

Mads Mikkelsen, whose credits include The Hunt, leads the cast, alongside Thomas Bo Larsen, Lars Ranthe and Magnus Millang.

Sisse Graum Jørgensen and Kasper Dissing produce for Zentropa. It is co-produced by Film i Väst, Zentropa Sweden, Topkapi Films and Zentropa Netherlands with support from the Danish Film Institute, TV 2 DENMARK, Eurimages, the Netherlands Film Fund, the Swedish Film Institute, the Netherlands Film Production Incentive and the MEDIA Programme.

TrustNordisk previously sold the film to France (Haut et Court), UK and Ireland (Studiocanal), Canada (Mongrel Media), Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein (Weltkino), South Korea (Atnine Film), Turkey (Filmarti), Benelux (September Films), Portugal (Films4You), Russia (Capella Film), Switzerland (Pathé Film), Hungary (Vertigo Media), Greece (Rosebud), Former Yugoslavia (Discovery Film & Video), Poland (Best Film), Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia (Estin Film) and Czech Republic (Film Europe).
