Paramount Home Media Distribution (PHMD) has acquired select US home entertainment rights to the acclaimed film.
Richard Linklater directed Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Lorelei Linklater and Ellar Coltrane in the coming-of-age drama.
IFC handles theatrical distribution and select ancillary rights on Boyhood, which has grossed more than $14.2m theatrically since it opened on July 11.
“We are thrilled and delighted to bring Richard Linklater’s extraordinary film to home viewing audiences,” said Amy Reinhard, president of worldwide television and home media acquisitions at Paramount.
PHMD will handle all DVD, streaming, online rental and online sell-through distribution following the theatrical run, while IFC will handle simultaneous VOD and EST sales to cable, satellite and telco providers.
Recent PHMD acquisitions include CNN Films’ Ivory Tower, William H Macy’s feature directorial debut Rudderless and Joe Swanberg’s Happy Christmas.
PHMD negotiated the deal with Lisa Schwartz and Betsy Rodgers of Sundance Selects/IFC Films.
