LA-based Pinnacle Peak Pictures has struck a raft of territory sales on Man Of God, the Greek box office champion about the life of St. Nektarios of Aegina that has held on to the number one slot for four weeks and drawn more than 270,000 admissions.
VP of international sales Ron Gell has licensed rights to Heritage for Australia and New Zealand, Saje for France, California Filmes for pan Latin America, Dutch Channels for Netherlands, and MCF for former Yugoslavia.
Gell and his team previously licensed Yelena Popovic’s Moscow International Film Festival audience award winner to Rocket Releasing in Russia and talks are ongoing with distributors around the world.
Man Of God opened in Greece through Feelgood Entertainment on August 26 and has amassed approximately $2.1m (€1.8m), beating off the likes of Disney’s Shang-Chi and Warner Bros’ Cry Macho to retain its top spot.
Popovic shot the film under strict Covid protocols in Greece last summer. It stars Hellenic Academy Award winner Aris Servetalis, Alexander Petrov and Mickey Rourke. Alexandros Potter and Popovic produced through their Simeon Entertainment.
