Drafthouse snags rights to ‘Comin at Ya! 3D’

Pic slated for re-release next year

Drafthouse Films, the film distribution arm of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, has acquired North American rights to “Comin at Ya! 3D” following the premiere of the restored film at Fantastic Fest.

Drafthouse announced Thursday that it would re-release “Comin at Ya! 3D” next year.

The original film — replete with flying arrows and lunging snakes — was released in 1981 as the first-ever 3D spaghetti Western, by co-writer/producer/star Tony Anthony and Italian genre director Fernando Baldi.

“We felt that Drafthouse Films, with their young and aggressive leadership, combined with a new model for 3D distribution, gave us the best chance to reach both longtime fans of the film and new audiences,” Anthony said.

Drafthouse Films launched a year ago with Chris Morris’ comedy “Four Lions.”
