|Part of Contender Home Entertainment, Contender Releasing distributes a variety of Asian movies in the UK, generally in the action, horror or epic genres. All have been successful, commercially and critically, in their home countries.|
This now forms an impressive catalogue of Japanese, Thai, Hong Kong and Korean films - blockbusters in their own countries - released under our highly successful Premier Asia or Hong Kong Legends labels. The market for Asian film has grown rapidly over the past few years. Sub-titles are more acceptable and film-goers are more open and appreciative of “World Cinema. These great movies range from horrors and action, to thrillers and comedy, and really deserve to be seen on the big screen.
Contender’s theatrical team ensures that such films are given the best possible distribution into cinemas before their release on DVD by CEG Home Entertainment.
