Relativity Media Closes Home Distribution Deal With Fox

The multi-year deal ensures Ryan Kavanaugh’s company will distribute DVD and Blu-ray releases.

In a key strategic move, Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity Media has closed a multi-year deal for 20th Century Fox to distribute its films on DVD and Blu-ray.

Upcoming Relativity titles include LimitlessImmortals and the untitled Snow White project, starring Julia Roberts.

A home distribution deal is critical for Relativity as it gets into the domestic distribution business. Netflix is already on board to release Relativity titles during the pay TV window.

Upon announcing the Fox deal, Relativity said it is now a fully integrated studio.

“Fox is widely regarded as an industry leader in home entertainment,” said Relativity president Michael Joe. "We are thrilled that Fox will be marketing and distributing our product alongside its own impressive line-up."

Fox Home Entertainment president Mike Dunn said Relativity has quickly proven to be a force in the industry.

“We are thrilled to partner with them to drive an exciting slate of films,” Dunn said.
