WB Mexico to re-release award-winning 'Pan'


MEXICO CITY -- Warner Bros. Mexico will re-release Guillermo del Toro's dark fantasy "Pan's Labyrinth" on 150 screens thanks to the broad success the film has had this awards season, the distributor said Wednesday.

The Mexico-Spain co-production, which recently nabbed seven of Spain's Goya Awards, including best original screenplay for Del Toro, will hit Mexican screens nationwide Friday. The picture also garnered six nominations for the upcoming Academy Awards and is considered a strong contender in the foreign-language film category.
