D-DAY

Theatrical, On Demand & Digital Release Planned for September 13, 2019

LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK, June 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cinedigm Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM) announced today, the 75th anniversary of the historic D-Day landings, that it has acquired all North American distribution rights to The Asylum’s WWII film, D-DAY, starring Chuck Liddell (Former UFC Champion & Hall of Famer, Kick-Ass 2, Altitude), Randy Couture (Former UFC Champion & Hall of Famer, The Expendables 2 & 3), Weston Cage Coppola (211, Circus Kane), and Jesse Kove (On Wings of Eagles). Cinedigm will release the picture in select theaters, on demand and digitally on September 13, with a DVD release to follow in October this year.

Written by Geoff Meed and directed by Nick Lyon, D-DAY is based on the incredible true story of the elite Army Rangers of the 2nd Battalion.

As thousands of Allied soldiers storm the beaches of Normandy in an attempt to change the course of WWII,  Lt. Colonel James Rudder (Cage Coppola), Lt. General Omar Bradley (Liddell), and Major Cleveland Lytle (Couture) lead the 2nd Battalion behind enemy lines and into a firefight against an enemy that greatly outnumbers them. Scaling a one-hundred-foot cliff, these heroic rangers battle to secure a strategic position and destroy a battery of German-seized cannons.

“The Asylum has delivered a dramatic, action-packed WWII movie anchored by a strong leading performance from Weston Cage Coppola, “said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s Executive Vice-President of Acquisitions. “With the 75th anniversary of D-Day this year, the film conveys the hardship and sacrifice of battle and pays tribute to the brave soldiers who endured so much to achieve this pivotal victory for us.”

“We have a long track record of success with Cinedigm,” said The Asylum COO, Paul Bales.  “With a smart, collaborative and experienced team in place, they really understand the evolving marketplace for independent movies, and we are thrilled to be partnering with them on D-DAY.”

The film was produced by David Michael Latt (Z NATION). Executive Producer is David Rimawi (BLACK SUMMER).

The deal was negotiated by Melody Fowler, Vice-President of Acquisitions, on behalf of Cinedigm, with Kendall Anlian, VP of Worldwide Sales, on behalf of the Asylum.

Cinedigm Acquires Jason Mewes’ Meta Comedy MADNESS IN THE METHOD
+
-

Theatrical, On Demand & Digital Release Planned for August 2019

LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK, May 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) announced today that it has acquired all North American rights to Jason Mewes’ directorial debut, MADNESS IN THE METHOD, from Autumnwood Media. Written by Chris Anastasi and Dominic Burns, the comedy stars Mewes (Mallrats), Kevin Smith (Clerks), Gina Carano (Haywire), Jaime Camil (“Jane the Virgin”), Vinnie Jones (Snatch), Danny Trejo (Machete), Stan Lee (in his last onscreen role), Teri Hatcher (Tomorrow Never Dies), Brian O'Halloran (Mallrats), and Dean Cain (God's Not Dead). Cinedigm will release the picture in select theaters, on demand and digitally in August 2019, with a DVD release to follow later in the year.

“I am excited to team up with Cinedigm and share my perspective of Earth-Nineteen’s Jason Mewes,” said Mewes. “I am blessed at all who took time to be part of my world.”

In the film, Mewes, tired of Hollywood’s perception of him, embarks on a quest to reinvent himself as a serious actor. Upon advice from best friend Kevin Smith, Mewes tracks down a highly secretive method-acting book – with disastrous consequences. Joining the star-studded ensemble are Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club), and David Dastmalchian (Ant-Man).

Best known as the vocal half of the on-screen comedic duo, Jay and Silent Bob, Mewes has reprised his role as the celebrated character, “Jay,” in a number of films. With cult-fans following his controversial antics, Mewes has captured audiences with rebellious banter against his unspoken other half and longtime friend, Kevin Smith (Silent Bob). Since the beginning of the duo’s offbeat work together, Mewes and Smith have continued to build on their beloved character driven roles from the Jay and Silent Bob series. Most recently, the duo wrapped JAY AND SILENT BOB REBOOT, which is scheduled for release later this year.

“We are thrilled to release MADNESS IN THE METHOD,” said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s Executive Vice-President of Acquisitions. “Jason made a hilarious film that is sure to give all of his and Kevin Smith’s fans the laughs they’ve been hungry for since Clerks 2.”

“We are delighted to be partnering with Cinedigm,” said producer Rob Weston. “They showed incredible tenacity to acquire the picture and we are convinced we have found the perfect home.”

The deal was negotiated by Josh Thomashow, Director of Acquisitions for Cinedigm, and Rob Weston on behalf of Autumnwood Media. Jason Mewes is represented by Amsel, Eisenstadt, Frazier & Hinojosa.
