Ryan Kavanaugh and Tucker Tooley at Relativity Media have been through different manifestations through the years that involved grand enterprises like slate financing half of the movies in Hollywood at one time, and plotting an Ipo in the near future. The story of this festival has been the number of upstart companies that bought films as they re-brand themselves into indie distribution players. They include the soon-to-be-renamed Millennium buying Madame Bovary, EuropaCorp buying Big Game for its new domestic distribution pipeline Red, and Rlj/Image acquiring the Thomas McCarthy-directed Adam Sandler comedy The Cobbler.
Relativity has also been honing its own identity, and it made the first two deals of the festival, buying the completed picture The Woman in Black 2, and Kidnap, a thriller that Halle Berry will star in. Relativity chased the Chris Rock film Top Five and premiered two films here, Beyond The Lights and Hector And The Search For Happiness. »

We hope you.re ready for more thoughtful British frights, because Relativity has acquired the Us distribution rights to The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death. A Deadline piece reveals that the company has made a seven-figure pact with the resurgent Hammer Films and eOne at the Toronto International Film Festival to bring the follow-up to the 2012 horror hit to America. The first film raked in $128 million globally, thanks to the presence of a post-Harry Potter Daniel Radcliffe in the leading role. The sequel -- directed by Tom Harper -- is already complete, so Relativity will just have to decide when they plan to place it in theaters. Radcliffe, who appears to enjoy working in genre efforts (he.s due to appear in High Tension director Alexandre Aja.s Horns next month), won.t be back for a second go round with the spectral woman of the title. Instead, »
Good day, buriers of all things beyond repair. I.d ask if any of you guys watched anything good in theaters this weekend, but I.m not sure anybody reading this was one of the 18 people who actually watched a movie outside of their home. The only horror making its way to the big screen was Casey La Scala.s end-of-days thriller The Remaining, which began its limited run. As far as smaller news goes, Relativity Media has dropped seven figures on The Woman in Black 2 from director Tom Harper. The highly acclaimed mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows, with Flight of the Conchords star Jemaine Clement, has been picked up for U.S. distribution by The Orchard, Unison Films and Funny or Die. And Douglas Booth (Noah) has joined the long-time-coming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. And now, let me tell you a story about a thing named »

United States filmgoers will now have the chance to return to the haunted Eel Marsh House along with a group of teachers and schoolchildren fleeing a bomb-pummeled 1940’s London in The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, the follow-up to the 2012 Hammer horror film that starred Daniel Radcliffe. Relativity Media has picked up the sequel for Us distribution.
Deadline reports that Relativity acquired Us distribution rights for the horror movie from Hammer and eOne.

If the acquisitions frenzy and precedent-setting deals struck in Berlin and Cannes is going to continue, it will surprise many of the sellers who’ve come to the Toronto Film Festival to fill slots in their 2015 slates. Maybe it’s because there were so many spectacular deals this year, of perhaps it’s because Toronto 2014 is so stocked with studio films that star the likes of Robert Downey Jr, Bill Murray and Denzel Washington. Whatever the reason, acquisition titles seem to be lower key than last year, when Can A Song Save Your Life and Bad Words prompted overnight auctions and $7 million deals, and just about every movie that played here found distribution.
The deal action got underway yesterday and today with Relativity’s acquisition of The Woman In Black 2 and Saban Entertainment’s deal for fest title Tracers. All the ingredients for a continued buying surge seem to be there, »

Hammer Films’ gothic scarefest The Woman in Black was an undeniable hit back in 2012. The big screen adaptation of Susan Hill’s eerie novel pulled in close to $130 million at the international box office and managed to strike a chord with its native audience in the UK. Moreover, it comfortably shepherded Daniel Radcliffe away from the shackles of a certain boy wizard and allowed him to stretch his acting muscles as a competent leading man. (The latter point is debatable, but we digress.)
That said, the young British actor won’t feature in the upcoming sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, which is to be distributed by Relativity Media in North America following a recent deal penned during the Toronto International Film Festival. According to Deadline, the partnership between the studios is said to be north of seven-figures.

The Toronto International Film Festival is just getting under way, and already distro news has emerged. Deadline is reporting that Relativity has closed a seven-figure deal for U.S. distribution rights to The Woman in Black: Angel of Death.
Hammer is looking to take the franchise route with The Woman in Black, starting with this one, which is set 40 years after the events of the original film. "If your second's successful, then your third, then you've got a franchise," said Hammer CEO Simon Oakes in a previous interview.
"I just don't believe in the notion that you can press a button and create a franchise, but, I mean, I'm definitely planning 3 and 4…"
The Woman in Black: Angel of Death stars Phoebe Fox in her first leading role in a feature film. Fox is joined by Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, Great Expectations, The Railway Man), the award-winning Helen McCrory (Skyfall, Hugo, »

Exclusive: In a development that bodes well for the coming avalanche of acquisition titles that starts tomorrow at the Toronto Film Festival, Relativity has closed a seven-figure deal for U.S. distribution rights to The Woman In Black 2. That is the sequel to the hit 2012 haunted house film that starred Daniel Radcliffe and was distributed in the U.S. by CBS Films. The sequel rights were controlled by Hammer and eOne, and the deal was brokered by CAA. The original grossed $54 million domestically and $128 million worldwide.
While buyers tell me they don’t see an obvious gotta-have-it title at Toronto like last year’s Can A Song Save Your Life, there is certainly an appetite for films that has been evident in festivals this year from Sundance to Berlin and Cannes. The Woman In Black 2 deal closed today, hours before Warner Bros opens the festival with the Robert Downey Jr-starrer The Judge. »
