10-Minute Preview Clip to be Screened at Giant Screen Cinema Association (GSCA) Conference in Ottawa on September 15, 2013
Los Angeles (CA), Paris (France) and London (UK) – August 30, 2013 / 3D Entertainment Distribution proudly announced today its acquisition of the worldwide distribution rights to D-Day, Normandy 1944, written and directed by Pascal Vuong, and produced by N3D LAND Films. The 40- minute film is slated for a March 2014 release in 3D and 2D giant screen and digital 3D cinemas.
D-Day, Normandy 1944 is a large format documentary produced entirely in 3D that provides a new, penetrating look at this moment in history in a unique manner to both teach and remind audiences of the largest-ever Allied operation and its lasting effect on the world. On June 6th, 2014, the 70th anniversary of D-Day will be marked by national and local commemorations on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as in Eastern Europe, Asia and Australia.
“After grossing $20 million at the box office with Sea Rex: Journey to a Prehistoric World, we are very proud and excited to enter into another distribution agreement with N3D LAND Films’ exceptional creative team on this highly-anticipated large-format film,” said Francois Mantello, Chairman and CEO of 3D Entertainment Distribution. “History, new technologies, human values and tactical strategy are among the many features that open the film to a wide range of audiences. It is also easily correlated to educational curriculums for all ages.”
“We wanted to make a film to pay tribute to all those — the soldiers and civilians — who gave their lives for freedom. Regardless of nationality, virtually everyone today has a parent, grandparent or even a great-grandparent with a connection to World War II. D-Day itself is well-known, yet very few people are aware of exactly why and how, during 100 days in the summer of 1944, Normandy became the most important place in the world,” Vuong explained. “Our collaboration with 3D Entertainment Distribution on Sea Rex was a successful experience and we are confident that this renewed partnership will be even greater.”
