Lionsgate, Village Roadshow Extend Australian Distribution Deal

Lionsgate has extended its multiyear output agreement with Village Roadshow for its films in Australia, including the upcoming “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” titles.

The agreement comes after the partnership launched in 2012. Australia was one of the top three international territories for the first two “Hunger Games” films, which star Jennifer Lawrence and had combined grosses topping $65 million.

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” will open on Nov. 20. The deal will also include the action comedy “Mortdecai,” starring Johnny Depp and The Power Rangers films from Lionsgate’s partnership with Saban Brands.

Joel Pearlman, managing director of Roadshow Films, said, “Lionsgate has emerged as a major force in the global marketplace in recent years and is an important supplier of some of the most commercially exciting films in the world. Looking at their upcoming slate, we believe that the best is yet to come.”

On July 7, Lionsgate announced it had extended its output deal with Studiocanal for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
