ATF Spotlight: MarVista Entertainment


SINGAPORE: A trio of thrillers leads MarVista Entertainment’s ATF slate, including Cold Zone, a disaster film about a scientist who discovers an impending flash-freezing storm that threatens to destroy the entire planet.

“Action-disaster genre movies, such as Cold Zone, are always in demand with Asian audiences, especially when the film has such talented actors as Martin Cummins (UnREAL), Kirsten Robek (Jingle All the Way 2) and Steve Bacic (Good Luck Chuck) in the lead roles,” says Robby Amar, the executive director of distribution at MarVista Entertainment.

The company is also offering up the thrillers 10 Year Reunion and The Follower, both of which “have engaging story lines and clever plot twists, and should appeal to a broad demographic,” says Amar. The Follower examines just how far an obsessive fan may go to demonstrate their love and admiration for a celebrity.

“We’re encouraged by the demand for American content by the Asian VOD market and other digital content platforms,” adds Amar.
