LONDON — Metrodome Distribution has acquired all U.K. rights to the New Zealand drama “Out of the Blue,” directed by Robert Sarkies.

It premiered at Toronto last fall, and grossed $1.1 million on theatrical release in New Zealand.

Metrodome bought the movie from NZ Film, which has also sold German rights to Capelight Film. The Weinstein Co. and IFC jointly acquired North American rights.
