Tele Munchen bought all rights to German-speaking markets, Key2media bought TV for Spain, and Fox/Star TV bought pay TV for Pan Asia.

Nonstop bought all Scandinavia rights to “Brake” and BooGee snagged all Korean rights.

Quality Filmes bought all Latin American rights to action comedy “Cat Run” excluding Brazil, where Lightning sold DVD rights.

Eagle Films acquired all rights for the Middle East for “Brake,” “Bloodwork,” “Boy Wonder,” “The Trouble With Bliss,” “Top Cat” and “Wrath” along with a pre-sale on Andrew Traucki’s “The Jungle.”
