I swear to God when I saw Gregoire Melin’s email to me this morning I almost danced around the room.  No wait – I think I did dance around the room.  Anyway I can confirm that Icon Film Distribution Australia is the Australian distributor of Cosmopolis in Oz.  I don’t think I could have asked for better news this morning.

Just so you know we have also established a contact within Icon so please do NOT bombard them with emails, phone calls or whatever.  We will bring you all relevant Aussie information about Cosmopolis right here.  If you want to know anything specific, just drop us an email and we will either find out or let you know whatever it is you need to know. 

Happy Cosmopolis Oz Distributor Day people!  Oh and just to remind you NO release date has been determined, but as soon as it’s known we will let you know.

    The best Roblicious news. Thanks Maria. Please excuse my ignorance but how does the whole film distribution thing work? I’ve never really considered how it works, I guess I’ve just developed an interest.

    @Silvie I suppose the easiest way to describe it is that each country usually buy the rights to distribute a film from production company – meaning that it is then the distributors responsibiilty to promote and distribute the film throughout Australia.

    It’s hard to get into the financial side of it because it would depend on what agreement has been reached between the distributor and the makers of the film. In any event, the one thing I do know is that if there are any promotional tours for the film – it is up to the individual distributor to arrange them. I’m only saying this because loads of people have complained that Summit never sends Rob here for Twilight. It’s out of Summit’s control – it’s up to the Australian distributor to do that. Hence why we saw Rob in Sydney for WFE – 20thCenturyFoxAustralia actually brought out the stars.

    Does that help?

    Yes Maria it does help. Thank you so much; it makes sense to me now. xx

    Thank you Maria for making it a much brighter day. To add to our wish list for Christmas a return visit by Rob to OZ in 2012 would that be too greedy.
