Q&A: Wild Bunch’s Vincent Maraval Unveils Pan-European Digital Distribution Company

31 October 2014 2:14 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris: Building on its experiment with Abel Ferrara’s “Welcome to New York,” Wild Bunch is launching a pan-European digital distribution company.

Following the footsteps of  TWC/Radius, A24 or IFC Films in the U.S., the Paris-based studio will acquire fresh movies for digital distribution in key European markets where it’s already established: In France (with Wild Bunch and Wild Side) Germany (with Wild Bunch Germany and Senator), in Italy (with Bim), in Spain (with Vertigo). In the U.K., Wild Bunch inked a pact with Altitude.

Unveiled less than two months following the roll-out of Netflix across continental Europe, Wild Bunch’s digital company also plans on being involved in financing and co-producing movies with U.S. partners.

Netflix sparked concerns in France last week when it nabbed exclusive rights to “St.Vincent” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” with Jessica Chastain for Gaul, therefore bypassing the sacrosanct theatrical release. »

Wild Bunch to launch pan-European digital distribution

31 October 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

First title destined for e-distribution slate is Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno. Company will be on hunt for suitable titles at the Afm.

Following the success of its VOD-only release of Welcome to New York earlier this year, Wild Bunch is poised to launch Europe’s first pan-European e-distribution operation.

Taking inspiration from the innovative models of Us distributors such as RADiUS, A24 and the IFC, the e-distribution operation will propose films either directly to different VOD services, or when legislation allows, simultaneously via VOD and in theatres.

“We wouldn’t be doing this if the release of Welcome to New York had not been a success and we weren’t convinced of the potential of this market,” said Wild Bunch co-founder Vincent Maraval.

Aside from the performance of Welcome to New York, which clocked some 200,000 downloads in six weeks, the company is also basing it plans on the results of the European Commission’s media »

Reese Witherspoon on Her Wild Sex Scene: My Husband Is 'Supportive'

9 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Reese Witherspoon is walking on the Wild side. The Oscar winner, 38, is once again earning Academy Awards buzz - this time for her raw performance in the upcoming drama Wild, which scored a standing ovation following its premiere Monday night at the Toronto International Film Festival. (People called it before the fest started!) Playing author Cheryl Strayed, who wrote the bestselling memoir upon which the film is based, Witherspoon is vulnerable and completely stripped-down - especially in one intense sex scene. So what did her husband Jim Toth think of the bold scene? "He's always very supportive," she told People »

Venice: France’s Bac Films Grows With Renewed Production Focus (Exclusive)

27 August 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

France’s Bac Films is renewing its production focus, upping French distrib buys and dramatically increasing film investment under owner-ceo David Grumbach.

The company is at the fest for Mohsen Makhmalbaf’s “The President,” which it co-produced and which opened Venice Horizons Wednesday. Bac is also selling the pic and will distribute in France. That level of involvement in a production looks increasingly to be the norm as Bac Films drives to “create (itself as) a boutique major or mini-major involved in all stages of movies’ life-cycle: Development, financing, production, local and international distribution,” Grumbach said just before Venice.

With Bac Films Distribution’s Mathieu Robinet running all aspects of its French operation, Bac is bringing in staffers and offering one-stop film financing. As many French companies are downscaling, Bac is building, emerging as an ever-more active player on the international film scene.

Bac Films used to acquire four to »

20 Reasons to Watch 20 Feet from Stardom

20 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Simon Columb with 20 reasons to watch 20 Feet from Stardom…

With the release of 20 Feet from Stardom on DVD and Blu-ray this Monday, this is your opportunity to catch a documentary that gained exceptionally positive reviews but it also managed to snag the Best Documentary at the Oscars (beating off strong competition from The Act of Killing). Directed by Morgan Neville, this inspirational film was screened at the London Film Festival – and I’ve personally sung it’s praises ever since. Rather than merely repeat my joy for the film, I deemed it necessary to break down why, as a music lover, a fan of film and appreciator of art, this particular film is a must-watch. Here are 20 reasons you need to see 20 Feet from Stardom…

For the love of music…

These are singers who are unknown, but are the glue that holds a song together. Whether it is the doop-dee-doop »

Cannes: Wild Side Co-Founder to Launch Paris-Based Production/Distribution House (Exclusive)

19 May 2014 6:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Manuel Chiche, co-founder of Wild Side, a leading distributor of upscale genre movies in France like Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive,” Park Chan-wook’s “Old Boy” and Bong Joon-ho’s “Snowpiercer,” is now set to launch the Jokers, a Paris-based production and distribution house.

Whereas Wild Side, which was backed by Wild Bunch, only handled financing and distribution, the Jokers will be fully involved in developing and producing indie films, with an emphasis on emerging and up-and-coming genre helmers.

“Going independent and officially stepping into production was a natural evolution for me. I’ve formed strong bonds with talents like Winding Refn and Bong since their debuts, advising them at script stage all the way to the editing room, and I’m now looking forward to take our collaborations to the next level,” Chiche told Variety in an exclusive interview.

“There is a promising new generation of filmmakers, such as »

24 April 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While director Bong Joon-ho’s dystopian sci-fi spectacular “Snowpiercer” is still two months away from its long-delayed U.S. release via Weinstein Co. subsidiary Radius, in France (where it was released last fall) Bong’s film has newly arrived on Blu-ray and standard DVD from distributor Wild Side.

Pretty Packaging: Take A Look At The French Snowpiercer Ultimate Edition Blu-ray

6 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

(Apparently the French were really, really happy they had the international premiere for this one...) International releases sometimes happen on weird, illogic timetables. This Thursday, April the 3rd, Bong Yoon-ho's new film Snowpiercer had its theatrical premiere in The Netherlands. On that very same day, the mailman arrived with a package out of France, containing the special edition Blu-ray of the very same film. Last year, France was the first country outside of South Korea to show Snowpiercer, with festival screenings back in September, followed with a wide release in October, and that is why their home releases leave the station a bit sooner, this very week in fact. The French distributor is Wild Side Video, and thankfully they have a reputation for pimping some...

Xyz Films Boards ‘Party Animal’ from Cult Norwegian Helmer Patrik Syversen (Exclusive)

31 January 2014 9:27 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Goteborg — Doing one of the things it does best — tapping into original genre talent from the four corners of the globe — L.A-based Xyz Films has boarded “Party Animal,” a werewolf pic from cult Norwegian genre scribe-helmer Patrik Syversen (“Hellfjord”), taking sales rights to what its producers bill as the first modern Scandinavian werewolf movie.

Screenwriter-actor Stig Frode Henriksen, a co-scribe on the “Dead Snow” zombie Nazi franchise, also co-penned “Animal.”

Twinning talent behind “Dead Snow,” and “Hellfjord,” seminal titles on the Nordic Noir scene, “Animal” adds to a Xyz Films slate that, for Berlin alone, features three buzzed-up Sundance titles – “The Raid 2,” “Killers,” and Sundance competition entry “Life After Beth” – plus three new acquisitions: Kevin Smith’s “Tusk,” Toa Fraser’s “The Dead Lands,” and Christopher Denham’s “Preservation.”

A horror film with action and comedic beats, “Animal” turns on a disillusioned young man who arranges a bachelor party »

Wild Side walks into Dead Lands

27 January 2014 1:22 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Xyz Films has licensed French rights to Wild Side on its upcoming Maori combat project heading into the Efm.

Toa Fraser (pictured) is currently in production in New Zealand on The Dead Lands.

Xyz holds world rights excluding Australia and New Zealand and will show early footage to buyers in Berlin as part of a dynamic genre slate that includes Kevin Smith’s Tusk.

The Xyz Films principals told ScreenDaily they expect The Dead Lands to raise the profile of Maori hand-to-hand combat in the way their action franchise The Raid has done for the southeast Asian Silat martial art.

Glenn Standring wrote the screenplay about the vengeful son of a Maori chieftain who must enter the forbidden Dead Lands and forge a pact with the mysterious “Warrior” to avenge his slain tribe.

James Rolleston of Boy fame stars alongside Lawrence Makoare, Te Kohe Tuhaka, Xavier Horan and Once Were Warriors cast members George Henare and Rena Owen »
