First Look to Roll Out First Titles in Nu Image Deal11 Jan, 2005 By: Brendan Howard
First Look Home Entertainment has struck a multipicture deal with producer Avi Lerner's Nu Image to distribute six of Nu Image's mutant/disaster films on DVD in North America this year.
Titles in the deal are Larva, MosquitoMan, SnakeMan, SharkMan, Nature Unleashed: Tornado and Nature Unleashed: Volcano, beginning with Larva in April. Many of the titles are slated for Sci-Fi Channel premieres in 2005.
“After the success of The Bone Snatcher, First Look Home Entertainment wanted to invest further into the popular creature genre. Partnering with a company such as Nu Image that excels at films with high production values, excellent creature effects and innovative story lines is the perfect starting point,” said Bill Bromiley, SVP sales and distribution, First Look Media.
