Sony to Distribute eOne's Momentum Pictures Releases15 Mar, 2016 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Entertainment One (eOne) March 15 announced deal whereby SPHE will distribute eOne’s specialty label, Momentum Pictures, across physical and digital home entertainment platforms globally — except in Canada.
Momentum Pictures’ current releases include The Program, from director Stephen Frears, and starring Ben Foster; Forsaken, starring Kiefer Sutherland and Donald Sutherland; and All Roads Lead to Rome, starring Sarah Jessica Parker. SPHE will also manage U.S. distribution for eOne television titles on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, including “Haven” and “Bitten.”
“Combining Momentum’s high-quality film and television slate with our current portfolio allows us to create a more-diverse product offering to satisfy a wide range of consumer interests,” Bill Stellman, EVP, CFO and supply chain for SPHE, said in a statement.
The pact excludes Canada as eOne in February inked an international distribution deal with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, which included distribution of titles in Canada.
