New York-based indie distributor Magnolia Pictures has acquired US rights to one of the hottest films to debut at the Toronto International Film Festival. 360 is a globe-hopping all-star drama by Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles (CITY OF GOD, THE CONSTANT GARDNER), with a sharp script by Oscar winner Peter Morgan (THE QUEEN). The film features a stellar international cast that includes Rachel Weisz, Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law, Ben Foster, Jamel Debbouze and Moritz Bleibtreu. 360 is a moving and exciting dramatic thriller that dazzlingly weaves together the stories of an array of people from disparate social backgrounds through their intersecting relationships. The film was shot on location in Vienna, Paris, London, Bratislava and Rio de Janeiro. It recently served as the Opening Night Gala at last month’s BFI London Film Festival. Magnolia plans a theatrical release in 2012 in all major US markets, bolstered by a prominent film festival presence leading up to release. 360 will also be distributed through Magnolia’s successful Ultra VOD program.
