Dominion’s ‘Doom’ to bow at B’buster

Love-triangle pic part of 'Exclusives' program

Dominion Entertainment has entered into a deal with Blockbuster for the release of the action thriller “Point Doom.” The pic will “premiere” in participating Blockbuster stores worldwide this fall.

Acquisition is part of the “Blockbuster Exclusives” program through which the company acquires indie films that rent solely from its 4,500 stores. So far, 100 movies have been picked up.

Deal is the largest yet for the Universal Studios-based indie producer and distributor. It was negotiated by Lantern Lane Entertainment prexy David Garber. Dominion president David DeFalco said the arrangement was “a significant development” for his company and called Blockbuster “clearly the most prestigious and visible video store in the world.”

“Point Doom” stars Richard Grieco, Angie Everhart, Ice T, Andrew “Dice” Clay and Jennifer O’Dell. DeFalco wrote and produced the tale of a love triangle.

Dominion is in post-production on “Gangland,” a sci-fi, suspense action thriller starring Costas Mandylor and Kathleen Kinmont.
