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.

Japanese rights to “Black Coal, Thin Ice,” which scooped the Golden Bear at Berlin, were licensed to Broadmedia Studios Corp., after a rare bid battle for a Chinese movie. Additionally, Imagine Film Distribution acquired it for Benelux; Non-Stop Entertainment acquired it for Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland; and HBO Central Europe acquired first run pay TV rights for Central Europe.
