Filmax joins in 3-D MAGIC

Digital 3-D continues to rev up in Europe as interest in acquiring local “stereo” pics looks to be building to a feeding frenzy.

A day after France’s StudioCanal announced its acquisition of distribution/sales rights on Ben Stassen’s 3-D AROUND THE WORLD IN 50 YEARS, another Euro mini-major, Spain’s Filmax Entertainment, has put its distribution weight behind digital 3-D, taking international rights to Jordi Llompart’s MAGIC JOURNEY TO AFRICA.

Deal on the children’s adventure pic was closed Wednesday in Barcelona.

MAGIC JOURNEY, a live-action 3-D movie mixed with CG images, is in post-production. Most of the 3-D movies in the current wave have been animated; only a handful of live-action digital 3-D pics have been seen in theaters.

Budgeted at E10 million ($13.3 million), MAGIC JOURNEY was made from inception as a film for 3-D theaters and Imax screens, Llompart said.
