Skull World, a documentary directed by Justin McConnell, is to receive a North American theatrical release and Blu-Ray, DVD and VoD roll-out thanks to a partnership between Toronto’s Indiecan Entertainment and production shingle Unstable Ground.
The documentary, which had its world premiere at the Canadian Film Fest this month, tells the story of Greg Sommer, aka Skull Man, and his involvement in Box Wars, which is billed as “an international underground movement of cardboard-based combat.”
The theatrical roll-out is set to start May 10 at the Carlton Cinema in Toronto, with ancillary platform releases beginning June 18. Regarding those platforms, the North America roll-out will feature a region-free DVD and limited edition “Warrior Edition” Blu-Ray. The VoD territories include Canada, the U.S., the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
Coproducer Raven Banner Entertainment continues to represent the film internationally. Indiecan CEO Avi Federgreen negotiated the deal with Unstable Ground’s McConnell, in association with Variety Store TV.
