Cannes Film Festival is going on as we speak and Lionsgate made its presence! According to The Hollywood Reporter, not only did Lionsgate debut their upcoming film Catching Fire, but they also showed a preview of Divergent!
“Our strong performance at Cannes this year is attributable in part to the international framework we’ve set in place combining output deals around the world with self-distribution in key territories such as the U.K. and Latin America,” said Lionsgate motion picture group co-chair Patrick Wachsberger. “This infrastructure gives us enormous flexibility and is already delivering remarkable results.”
Lionsgate brought stars Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth and director Francis Lawrence to Cannes to tout The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. It also showed a sneak preview of footage from one of its upcoming young adult franchises, Summit Entertainment’s Divergent.
It is amazing that they already have footage to show! Maybe we’ll get to see some of that soon. Which scene do you think they shot at Cannes?
Thanks Divergente Brasil for the heads up!
