“At the End of the Tunnel,” a Warner Bros. release in Argentina and Spain, is clinching early major territory and regional sales.

A bank heist thriller starring Leonardo Sbaraglia (“Wild Tales”) and Claro Lago (“Spanish Affair”), “Tunnel” is produced by Spain’s Tornasol Films and Argentina’s Haddock Films (Juan Jose Campanella’s “The Secret in Their Eyes”).

Bowing April 21 in Argentina, and climbing to No 2. in its second week in theaters in a sign of good word-of-mouth, “Tunnel” is the second-highest-grossing release for WB, Hollywood fare included, of 2016, tracking at $1.1 million after 17-days, and ranking No. 3 in charts in its third weekend. But in a classic Hollywood studio/overseas sales agent split, Warner Madrid-based sales agent Latido has world sales rights and has and has clinched pre-sales for Japan (The Klockworks) and with Sinema TV for Turkey, as well as with with HBO Eastern Europe and another regional pay TV channel, Cinemaworld, in a pan-Asia regional pact. Warner will bow “Tunnel” in Spain in June.
