Russia’s Distributor Arthouse Acquired ‘War On Everyone’

Screendaily reports that Arthouse, the leading Russian distributor of foreign and independent films that was fully acquired by US firm Lorem Ipsum Corp earlier this year, has picked up a hat-trick of titles.

The films include John Michael McDonagh’s War on Everyone, starring Alexander Skarsgård, Michael Peña and Theo James.

Two corrupt cops in New Mexico set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path. Things take a sinister turn, however, when they try to intimidate someone who is more dangerous than they are. Or is he?

War on Everyone debuted at Berlin and Arthouse MD Evgeny Pivovarov said: “We’re happy to get one of the funniest and stylish action comedies of the season in our line up. War On Everyone made the whole screening room laugh to tears at the world premiere at Berlinale and John Michael McDonagh proves once again that he is the true master of the genre.
