You can’t say we didn’t warn you there’d be some more distribution news coming out of the Cannes Film Festival. The latest tidbit is that Magnet Releasing (the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures) has picked up US rights and Mongrel Media has acquired Canada from XYZ Pictures to Panos Cosmatos’ sci-fi thriller Beyond the Black Rainbow.

Per Screen Daily the film, which premiered at the Tribeca film fest last month, will get theatrical releases in both markets.

Synopsis:
Beyond the Black Rainbow, written and directed by Panos Cosmatos, is a Reagan-era fever dream inspired by hazy childhood memories of midnight movies and Saturday morning cartoons. Cosmatos brings a bold, Kubrickian vision to the screen in stunning detail in this sci-fi fable of a young woman imprisoned in an experimental laboratory and the enigmatic scientist who is her captor. Set in a futuristic 1983, Elena finds herself held against her will in a mysterious facility under the watchful eye of the sinister Dr. Barry Nyle. Pushed to her limits, Elena is left with no choice but to navigate an escape from her labyrinthine prison, in the process revealing its hidden secrets.

At once creatively futuristic and hypnotically retro, Beyond the Black Rainbow evokes the spirit of classic 1970s and 80s science fiction films through its vintage-inspired chromatic cinematography, elaborate set pieces, and an authentically retro sci-fi score composed entirely on analog synthesizers by Black Mountain’s Jeremy Schmidt. With all the makings of a cult classic, Beyond the Black Rainbow is sure to absorb viewers in its unique dystopian futurescape and marks the trippy, exciting debut of a promising new talent in the science fiction world.

A joint Canadian/Italian production that was shot in Vancouver, the film stars Michael Rogers, Eva Allan, and Scott Hylands. Be sure to check out the official Beyond the Black Rainbow website and the Beyond the Black Rainbow group on Facebook for additional info.

What happens when the undead return to life? In a world ravaged for years by a virus that turns the infected into zombie-like cannibals, a cure is at last found and the wrenching process of reintegrating the survivors back into society begins. Among the formerly afflicted is Senan (Sam Keeley), a young man haunted by the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law (Ellen Page), Senan attempts to restart his life—but is society ready to forgive him and those like him?
