The film “Cobweb” has confirmed its pre-sale in 187 countries worldwide and simultaneous releases in major countries.
“Cobweb,” a delightful film directed by Kim Yeol (played by Song Kang-ho) who believes that if he changes the ending of a 1970s movie “Cobweb” it will become a masterpiece, depicts the cheerful story of pushing through the filming on the brink of madness with actors and producers who don’t understand the censorship and the altered content.
“Cobweb,” which received a standing ovation of 12 minutes at the 76th Cannes Film Festival, is ready to meet global audiences as it has been sold to 187 countries overseas, including North America. Anticipation is building among film fans in various countries, including Asian regions such as Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, as well as European regions like France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Scandinavia, South American regions like Mexico and Brazil, and Oceania regions like Australia and New Zealand.
Notably, the North American region is drawing attention as the first Korean film selected by Samuel Goldwyn Films, a renowned American independent distribution company with a long tradition. Since its founding in 1979 by Samuel Goldwyn Jr., the son of MGM founder Samuel Goldwyn, Samuel Goldwyn Films has been known for selecting about 10 quality films each year for distribution. They expressed their excitement about introducing Kim Ji-woon’s “Cobweb” in the North American region, saying, “We are very pleased to be able to introduce Kim Ji-woon’s ‘Cobweb’ in the North American region. We were once again amazed by Kim Ji-woon’s unique talent as we shared the Cannes premiere. This film will be celebrated not only by genre film fans but also by cinephiles.” They shared the reason for distributing “Cobweb” and their thoughts on the film.
