Lionsgate Announces New Deals with Studiocanal and Celestial Tiger Entertainment
Great news for our German and Austrian fans, as well as those based in East Asia, with Lionsgate strengthening international relationships with both Studiocanal and Celestial Tiger Entertainment. As the Chicago Tribune reports, these deals “are the latest steps in Lionsgate’s strategy of creating an international distribution network with leading partners in major territories”:
“The agreement with Studiocanal extends the media giant’s distribution of “The Hunger Games” franchise in German-speaking territories to include the final installment of the series, the two-part “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay,” and also encompasses other films from the Lionsgate slate.
Lionsgate also boosted its exclusive partnership in Asia by expanding its distribution pact with Hong Kong-based Celestial Tiger from China and Southeast Asia to all of East Asia, including Japan and South Korea.
Celestial Tiger, which is partly owned by Lionsgate, will handle the company’s feature film and television content in the region.”
Fantastic to see Lionsgate adding even more countries to their list, ensuring fans all over the world will be able to enjoy a theatrical release
