Warner Bros To Distribute MGM Movies Abroad; What’s Up With Bond – Deadline


EXCLUSIVE: Two months into their run, Warner Bros Pictures Group co-chairs and CEOs Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy signed a multi-year deal to arrange the international distribution of MGM’s theatrical titles, starting with Luca Guadagnino’s Bones and everything in November and continue with the 2023 slate and beyond; the second title under the pact is Creed III in March.

The deal, which De Luca and Abdy worked out with MGM COO Christopher Brearton, will see Warner Bros. generate a lot of extra income. I’ve heard the terms are three years with an option for two and theatrical distribution of MGM titles outside of the US including China. The new agreement also includes worldwide physical home entertainment distribution for all newly released MGM titles. MGM and Warner Bros. Picture Group will collaborate on marketing/advertising, publicity, film distribution and exhibitor relationships on behalf of MGM’s future series of theatrical releases outside the North American theater market, with Warner Bros. responsible for the execution.

Previously, MGM titles were released overseas by Universal, and under the terms of the studio’s old deal, Eon’s Bond 26 will be released by Uni International, alongside the Broccoli studio’s upcoming Orion Pictures release. Until and Sarah Polley’s women talk during Q1 2023. After Sony distributed most of the Daniel Craig 007 franchise through four titles, Universal released the latter overseas with the actor, No time to die which raised $613.2 million. MGM released that film in the state where it earned another $160.8 million for a total of $774.1 million.


The terms of the new Warner Bros. agreement with MGM include foreign distribution of subsequent 007 films from Bond 27 onwards.

“We are incredibly excited to be working with the Warner Bros. team. to bring MGM’s list of future releases to an international audience. The studio’s range of original, franchise and prestige theatrical films are a great addition to the range of films WBD offers to the public outside the US,” said MGM’s Brearton.

“Warner Bros. and MGM have a long and highly successful history of collaboration and we are pleased to see our companies partner again,” said De Luca and Abdy. “Our studios and executives share a commitment and passion to bring high-quality films of all genres to global audiences, so this is a win for moviegoers and the film industry in general.”

Warner Bros. International is overseen by Andrew Cripps.

Bones and everything will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival. Pictured are Taylor Russell, Timothée Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg, André Holland, Chloë Sevigny, David Gordon-Green, Jessica Harper, Jake Horowitz and Mark Rylance. The photograph, written by Dave Kajganich and based on the novel by Camille DeAngelis, follows the first love between Maren (Taylor Russell), a young woman learning to survive on the fringes of society, and Lee (Timothée Chalamet), an intense and rightless wanderer. They meet and join together for a thousand-mile odyssey that takes them through the back roads, hidden passageways and trapdoors of Ronald Reagan’s America. But despite their best efforts, all roads lead back to their terrifying past and to a final standpoint that will determine whether their love can survive their otherness. Guadagnino directs and produces with Theresa Park, Marco Morabito, Francesco Melzi d’Eril, Kajganich, Lorenzo Mieli, Gabriele Moratti, Peter Spears and Chalamet. EPs include Giovanni Corrado, Raffaella Viscardi, Moreno Zani, Marco Colombo, Jonathan Montepare. Bones and everything opens wide via United Artists Release stateside on November 23.
