Shout Factory Acquires Two Films From EuropaCorp

Posted December 6, 2012 04:11 PM by Webmaster

Shout FactoryIndependent U.S. distributors Shout Factory have acquired the distribution rights to two French productions: Bibo Bergeron's CG animation Un monstre à Paris a.k.a A Monster in Paris (2011) and Luc Besson's The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (2010). Both films are expected to enter the home video market in 2013.

A Monster in Paris

Bibo Bergeron directs this animated romance set in Paris in 1910. Two friends, cinema projectionist Emile (voiced by Jay Harrington) and delivery driver Raoul (Adam Goldberg), accidentally create a monster that triggers panic on the city's streets. Spotting an opportunity to further his political career, corrupt chief of police Maynott (Danny Huston) immediately declares the beast Public Enemy Number One and vows to slay it at all costs. But when beautiful cabaret singer Lucille (Vanessa Paradis) offers refuge to the creature, Emile and Raoul realise it may not be the ferocious villain it seems. The supporting voice cast includes Bob Balaban, Sean Lennon and Catherine O'Hara.

The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec

Luc Besson writes and directs this comic fantasy adventure adapted from Jacques Tardi's graphic novels of the 1970s. Set in the early 20th century, the film tells the colourful tale of popular novelist and adventuress Adele Blanc-Sec (Louise Bourgoin), who deals in her own inimitable style with would-be suitors, the police, monsters and various other diversions as she attempts to save a mad scientist who has brought a pterodactyl to life so that he can re-animate an Egyptian mummy and use its ancient magic to revive Adele's sister, who has been in a coma for four years following a bizarre tennis accident.

Note: Blu-ray.com has already reviewed the UK Blu-ray release of The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec here.

I hope by "home video market" that means Blu-ray. Both films look great, but Extraordinary Adventures... wow. And Besson actually wrote and directed it!

The Adele Blanc Sec film has been released by Entertainment One in Canada already... Several months ago.

I had heard of A Monster in Paris and how it was released in other countries in 3D by EOne. Looking forward to renting.

I'm surprised it's taken so long to get a US deal on Adele Blanc-Sec considering the film's pedigree - it's been on Blu-ray in the UK for well over a year. It's a lot of fun even if you get the feeling that after the big buildup he gets they were saving Mathieu Almaric's character for a sequel that will never happen.

I've seen Blanc-Sec, it was alright. I'll probably revisit it when it hits Blu.

Had the Canadian Adèle Blanc-Sec BD for almost a year now. It looks beautiful, too.

Both will be released on Blu-ray, and A Monster in Paris will be 3D Blu-ray also.

I already bittorrented the blu ray file of A Monster in Paris, and thought it was pretty good. I'll buy it if the price is right.
