CANNES: Chinese ‘The Great Hypnotist’ Sells Strongly for Fortissimo

Fortissimo has conjured up a raft of sales for Chinese hit “The Great Hypnotist.”

The Wanda Media-backed pic, which has grossed $35 million in China, was picked up by Golden Scene for Hong Kong to release in mid-June; Clover Films for Singapore and Malaysia; and Eagle Pictures in Taiwan. The Fox Channels acquired pay TV and digital rights for Southeast Asia. Worldwide airline rights were licensed to Encore.
