A relatively new force among independent distributors, Millennium Entertainment was formed in 2010 and is poising for a breakout year to follow up last year’s notable releases like Richard Linklater’s “Bernie” and Lee Daniel’s “The Paperboy.” This year they’re receiving additional backing in the form of VOD distributor Gravitas Ventures.
The two companies will coordinate their efforts on a number of 2013 indie releases, with Millennium doing home video distribution and Gravitas handling VOD. Upcoming releases include last years festival crowd-pleaser “The End of Love,” directed by and starring Mark Webber, the 2012 SXSW musical-comedy and drama “Hunky Dory,” starring Minnie Driver
and drama “33 Postcards” starring Guy Pearce, which previously
played on approximately 8,000 screens in theatrical
release in China.
On a related note, the Sundance comedy “Hell Baby” starring Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb will open theatrically in July via Millennium and go live on VOD via Gravitas.
