Studiocanal is set to regain distribution rights to more than 200 of its premium feature film titles previously distributed by NBCUniversal, commencing January 2022. The company will be directly handling sales of even more of its own prestigious titles for TV and SVOD worldwide with a sales team based in Paris.
The Studiocanal library is one of the most prestigious in the world covering over a century of world cinema with wide-ranging, evergreen films, such as Carolco blockbusters “Terminator 2,” the “Rambo” trilogy, and “Basic Instinct”; comedies “Love Actually,” “Bridget Jones” and “Johnny English”, as well as many premium titles including “The Elephant Man,” “Mulholland Drive,” “Apocalypse Now,” “Brotherhood of the Wolf,” “The Graduate,” “King Kong,” and “The Outsiders”; European critically acclaimed “The Others” and “The Pianist”; along with French classics such as “Le Professionnel,” “La Grande Illusion” and “La Grande Vadrouille”.
“It’s been a pleasure to work with NBCUniversal, which I’d like to thank for the excellent collaboration over the past 20 years. We are delighted to handle the distribution of these incredible films directly adding to the stellar line-up of content that we are able to offer our clients around the globe. This comes at a time when many global channels and platforms are seeking a diverse range of high-end theatrical titles right now, creating a real opportunity for our business,” said Juliette Hochart, EVP Library at Studiocanal.
