Distribution for the film was doomed from the start. Back in 2013, Benaroya Pictures and Miscellaneous Entertainment formed an international sales company, International Film Trust and took the as of yet filmed Cell (2016) to Cannes to sell off distribution rights. No US distributor signed onto the project. In February 2015, new startup distributor Clarius Entertainment picked up US distribution rights for Cell and planned on an late 2015 wide release and the extent of their marketing efforts was uploading a still image with their acquisition press release - no trailers were cut. Clarius released their first three pictures in 2014 and all three were box office flops - Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2013), And So It Goes (2014) and Before I Go to Sleep (2014). Their other films weren't better off: She's Funny That Way (2014) went through a bidding war where Clarius won, however If any of the several studios that were bidding on the film took the rights, the film would have saw its theatrical rollout, but after Clarius left the film in limbo, the producers were only able to sell the pic to Lionsgate for a VOD release and small token theatrical release; My All American (2015), now as Aviron Pictures, flopped hard, grossing a mere $2 million in theaters; and The Outskirts (2016) saw itself in a similar bind as Cell. Unable to provide payment for She's Funny That Way and its pending litigation, it is more than likely Cell and The Outskirts would go down a similar path. Enter Saban Films, the same company who swooped in to save Rob Zombie's 31 (2016), did the same for Cell on March 31st. Saban's marketing campaign revved up in April 2016, revealing the first official poster and trailer on April 26th as well as US theatrical release date: July 8th, 2016. See more »
