Hot off the press at CinemaCon: Barco has just inked deals with two top production companies to release multiple upcoming titles in Barco’s multi-screen, immersive movie format, Barco Escape.


Cross Creek Pictures has committed to go into development on a film in Barco Escape by 2017. The company recently announced a three-year co-financing, production, and distribution deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment, and is already well-known as the production company behind thrillers “Black Swan,” “Everest,” “Rush,” and "Black Mass."

Fundamental Films will produce two or more of their upcoming titles as part of their deal with Barco Escape. Fundamental is targeting “24 Hours to Live,” directed by Brian Smrz and produced with Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road (“John Wick,” “Sicario,” “Gods of Egypt”). “24 Hours” will release in summer 2017, with an additional, to-be-announced Fundamental title debuting in Barco Escape in late 2016. 

With current exhibitor partners in the United States, Europe, Mexico and China, Barco plans to expand to more than 100 Barco Escape theaters in 2016.
