Warner Bros. Takes Over Home Entertainment Distribution for Nordic Indie NonStop
COLOGNE, Germany - Warner Bros. has signed a deal with Scandinavian indie distributor NonStop Entertainment to take over home entertainment releases of all NonStop titles, starting this year.
The agreement will see Warner handle the DVD/Blu-ray releases of such NonStop titles as Barney's Version, Let Me In and Danish drama Submarine in the Nordic territories.
"During 2011 we have a first-class lineup," said NonStop CEO Ignas Scheynius. "We have great confidence in Warner Bros. Entertainment and believe that together we will be able to take our DVD sales to the next level."
NonStop stocked up on new films at the European Film Market in Berlin this year, snatching up Scandinavian rights to such titles as Morgan Spurlock’s new comedy doc The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Miranda July’s Competition entry The Future, the thriller I Melt With You starring Jeremy Piven and Rob Lowe; Another Happy Day with Ellen Barkin, Kate Bosworth and Demi Moore and hot docs Bobby Fischer Against The World and Page One: A Year Inside The New York Times.
