Eureka Picks Up GUILTY OF ROMANCE & THE YELLOW SEA For UK Distribution
The North American distribution deals for these films haven't formally been announced yet, as far as I know. The Yellow Sea is an international co-production with Fox World Cinema, a new venture from Fox Entertainment, which means US distribution through Fox, most likely. Guilty of Romance, meanwhile, has two different versions, and presumably the version Eureka picked up was the 1hr50min version that was screened at the Cannes film market. There is also a 2hr20min version that was screened at the Director's Fortnight but was not made available for international sale. I've got a message in to Eureka to confirm this, and I will update with the official word when I hear it.
EUREKA ENTERTAINMENT to distribute Guilty of Romance and The Yellow Sea in the UK & Eire
EUREKA ENTERTAINMENT would like to announce that they will be distributing the Japanese film Guilty of Romance & the Korean film The Yellow Sea (Hwanghae) in the UK & Eire.
Guilty of Romance is the erotic thriller by Japanese cult director Sion Sono (Love Exposure, Cold Fish) which premiered with a Gala Screening at the Directors' Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. The theatrical and DVD rights for the film were acquired by EUREKA from Films Boutique and will be released theatrically on 30 September 2011 in selected cinemas nationwide.
The Yellow Sea, starring Yun-seok Kim is a Korean crime drama directed by Hong-jin Na who won critical acclaim for his previous film The Chaser. The Yellow Sea was selected to screen as part of the Un Certain Regard programme in Cannes.
EUREKA ENTERTAINMENT will be distributing The Yellow Sea in the UK on behalf of BOUNTY FILMS, who acquired the theatrical and DVD rights for the film from Showbox/Mediaplex. The Yellow Sea is set for release on 21 October 2011 in selected cinemas nationwide.
