One of Global Eagle’s distributors, Emphasis, has worldwide rights outside Korea for Parasite, which won four Oscars (Academy Awards), including being the first entirely foreign-language film to win Best Picture. Another distributor, EIM, has rights for Judy and 1917, with Renée Zellweger taking Best Actress and Sir Sam Mendes’ war epic celebrating three Oscar wins, including Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Mixing and Best Cinematography.
Per Norén, president at Global Eagle commented, “Global travel audiences are more discerning than ever, so we are excited to offer movies through Emphasis and EIM that have been recognised with the highest of accolades. Our distribution team is expert at sourcing entertainment that passengers want and is relevant to local markets. We believe Parasite, Judy and 1917, are excellent examples of content that fulfills our customers’ brand promise.”
