Tucker to release ‘Thermae’ in Italy

Japanese time-travel pic world preemed at Udine

Tucker Films, the distribution arm of the org that runs the Udine Far East Film Festival, has acquired the Japanese time-travel laffer “Thermae Romae” for distribution in Italy on 50 screens.

Set in ancient Rome and modern-day Japan, pic features a Roman bath architect (Hiroshi Abe) who finds new ideas – and gets a career reboot when he time travels to a Japanese public bath. It was shot in Japan and in Rome’s Cinecitta studio with nearly 2,000 local extras.

Pic world preemed in April at the Udine fest, where it got a rapturous reception from the mostly Italian aud and won the My Movie Internet award, decided by online votes on one of Italy major movie sites.

Meanwhile, in Japan, boosted by news of its Italian success, pic has earned nearly $34 million from 2.17 million admissions since its April 28 bow. It has also been picked up for release in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
