Cannes, May 2020
101 Films, an Amcomri Entertainment Inc company, has confirmed the all-rights acquisition of a significant slate of movies for release in the UK market.
Leading a strong and eclectic offering at this year’s virtual Marché du Film is Nuclear, acquired from Ida Martins at Media Luna. Nuclear is a tense and haunting tale of a toxic family with a dangerous past, starring George MacKay (fresh from his starring role in Oscar-winner, 1917) alongside Emilia Jones who has also starred in the supernatural Netflix hit Locke & Key.
The Complex from Red and Black Films is a prescient and ultra-modern London-set sci-fi movie starring Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, The Witch).
Fantasy adventure Adventures of Rufus – The Fantastic Pet(2019),a mix of live action and animation, and Joey and Ella – A Kangaroo Tail (2021),are two high quality family titles from Ace Entertainment.
Starring Kelsey Grammer, Thomas Jane and Adam Copeland, Money Plane, is an all-action, mile-high thriller, in which a professional thief attempts a heist on an airborne casino filled with the world’s most dangerous criminals.
Finally, Pharaoh’s War (2019), from Premiere Entertainment, is a modern war thriller starring Icelandic strongman Hafthor Julius Bjornsson (Game of Thrones’ Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane) and featuring comeback king Mike Tyson as a military man battling mercenaries in the Egyptian desert.
101 Films MD Andy Lyon said “101 Films is actively accelerating its UK acquisitions strategy as we look to bolster our already significant library of films in UK. This forms part of our long term strategy to acquire individual new movies and existing film. We already have one of the largest libraries of independent film rights in UK and look to invest further.”
101 Films will be attending Virtual Marche Du Film between 22nd and 26th June and is inviting sellers to make contact with its head of acquisitions, Steve Davey. Steve can be reached via email at Steve@101-films.com or on his UK mobile +44 7712 601708
