Paris, France) -- Technicolor (Euronext Paris: TCH; NYSE: TCH) today announced it has signed an agreement with CINE PROJECT (, a market-leading distributor and installer of analog and digital cinema equipment, to bring innovative solutions and pricing to the market and ignite the demand for Technicolor 3D in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

"We're excited to launch Technicolor 3D in these new markets," said Joe Berchtold, president of Technicolor's Creative Services division. "We have a very affordable technology solution that helps to bridge the gap to solve the current shortage of digital 3D screens, and bring 3D to audiences in International markets of all sizes."

Currently, Technicolor 3D has installed more than 500 screens internationally and released 15 titles from major motion picture studios. Studios supporting the Technicolor 3D format include Paramount, Warner Bros, DreamWorks Animation, Universal, The Weinstein Company, Lionsgate Films, Summit and Relativity Media. Forthcoming movies expected to be available in Technicolor 3D include: Drive Angry (Summit), Thor (Paramount), Kung Fu Panda (Paramount/DreamWorks), Green Lantern (Warner Bros.), Transformers Dark of the Moon (Paramount) and Harry Potter 7: Part II (Warner Bros).

Technicolor 3D employs a proprietary system that generates a high quality 3D image on standard 35 mm film and leverages the existing 35mm film projectors in use today by many U.S. and international theatres. A patent-pending lens system splits the left and right eye images as the film runs through the projector and delivers a 3D image onto a silver screen. The solution works with low cost circular polarized disposable 3D glasses - identical to those used for digital 3D - to translate the film's content into an image that is perceived by the viewer as being three-dimensional. The silver screen can be used for the projection of both Technicolor 3D as well as traditional 2D content.

Technicolor 3D is available now in the United States, Canada, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Japan, Latin America and throughout the Asia-Pacific Region at a fraction of the cost of a digital 3D system. For more information, visit

March 2, 2011 -- After an initial successful run at 15 digital cinema locations, Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) has re-teamed with Red Bull and its media distribution partner WAX to bring the harrowing documentary "Mount St. Elias" to 4 additional theatres around the U.S. For one night only this Thursday, March 3rd, moviegoers can witness this visually stunning film. Audiences will get a big screen glimpse into one of the greatest feats in mountaineering and skiing history as three Alpine skiers risk their lives in pursuit of the world's longest descent.

Created by the Red Bull Media House, "Mount St. Elias" is a perfect candidate for digital distribution and benefits from the extremely targeted and efficient distribution model brought forth by digital cinema technology. Digital cinema provides moviemakers with a unique opportunity to bring their theatrical releases to screens while eliminating the cost of film prints and effectively reaching the fan base through social media, grassroots efforts and highly targeted media campaigns without the cost of a traditional national advertising campaign.

The film, a recipient of global film festival awards, follows three skiers as they brave temperatures of 40 degrees below zero, dense fog and falling rocks in hopes of descending the longest continuous ski run in the world - a 21 mile descent from summit to sea level featuring a massive vertical relief up to 60 degrees steep. The previous attempt to ski this slope ended in tragedy when two of the most experienced skiers fell to their deaths in 2002. Director Gerald Salmina captures adventurer Axel Naglich, ski alpinist Peter Ressmann and free ski pro Jon Johnston as they risk everything to achieve what no man has ever done before.

"Mount St. Elias" is one of many recent live and alternative content programming releases by Cinedigm including the ground-breaking world-wide LIVE 3D broadcast of the FIFA World Cup Championship, the BCS National Championship in LIVE 3D, the Dave Matthews Band concert in 3D and the sold out PHISH 3D concert. Cinedigm also releases the six-year-old KIDTOONS series, a weekly family friendly matinee series that runs in more than 165 theatres across the country.

The theatres presenting "Mount St. Elias" on March 3, 2011:

Cameron Crowe's The Union, a new documentary about Elton John, will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 20. John will be performing after the free screening at the North Cove of the World Financial Plaza.

"It's a special opportunity to open our 10th festival in this distinct and unique way," said festival co-founder Jane Rosenthal. "Not only are we inviting the community to join us for the world premiere of Cameron Crowe's film The Union, but to have Elton, whose music transcends generations, perform after is an extraordinary gift to our festival and more specifically the downtown community."

2011 is shaping up to be a great year for Crowe. In December he'll open We Bought a Zoo, which stars Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and Elle Fanning.

The voices of Toy Story's Woody and Buzz may soon be appearing together in front of the camera. Disney reportedly wants Tom Hanks and Tim Allen to star in Jungle Cruise, a new project inspired by the Magical Kingdom ride. No director has been named yet.

Toy Story raked in more than $1 billion worldwide, so it's no surprise that Disney would want to work with Hanks and Allen on a new project. Hanks is set to have a great year in 2011 with Larry Crowne, his new directorial effort, and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close from director Stephen Daldry (The Hours). Allen is currently filming Geezers! alongside J.K. Simmons and Mike O'Malley.
