Tartan girds for ‘Battle’

Co. takes rights to Reygados pic, Korean 'Blood Rain'

Tartan Films has picked up U.S. and U.K. rights to Mexico’s sexually explicit Cannes competition entry “Battle in Heaven” by Carlos Reygados.

Pic, about a child kidnapping that goes tragically wrong, is expected to cause a stir when it premieres Sunday, thanks to its frank on-screen depiction of fellatio.

Tartan has also acquired U.K. rights to Korean box office hit “Blood Rain” by Kim Dae-seung. It’s a murder mystery set in the 19th century.
