SPI International Brings New Theatrical Release "Arcadian" Starring Nicolas Cage to Cinemas in Hungary

Following successful theatrical releases in Eastern Europe, SPI International continues to grow its theatrical distribution in Hungary with the release of “Arcadian.” The global media company has secured the rights for the Nicolas Cage-starring horror movie in Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Benelux, and Israel. SPI International continues its partnership with ADS bringing the movie to theatres in Hungary on May 30, 2024. The deal marks another theatrical release for SPI International in Hungary and the expansion of the company’s distribution arm. More theatrical releases in other territories will be announced soon.

“We are excited to bring Arcadian to audiences throughout our territories. The film is an exercise in high tension that deserves to be seen on the big screen. We are pleased to continue our partnership with ADS for the theatrical release of Arcadian in Hungary and looking forward to showcasing it in our other territories.” - said Alexandra PuiuSales Manager at SPI International.

Arcadian is set in the near future, where normal life on Earth has been decimated. Paul (Nicolas Cage) and his two sons, Thomas and Joseph, have been living a half-life – tranquility by day and torment by night. When the sun sets, ferocious creatures of the night awaken and consume all living souls in their path. One day, Thomas doesn't return home on time from a visit to his crush, the nearby farm girl, Charlotte. Paul chooses to leave the safety of their fortified farm, risking his life, to find Thomas before the creatures arrive. Just as he finds his boy, a nightmarish battle ensues, and Paul is nearly killed by the creatures. Back at the house, Joseph is scared and all alone to defend himself against the nightly attack. He succeeds by outsmarting the creatures, even capturing one as he survives the night. At dawn Joseph goes out and finds his brother with their badly injured father. Now the twins devise a desperate plan for surviving the coming night. Thomas and Joseph together use their courage, ingenuity, and everything their father has taught them to keep him alive.

Produced by Saturn Films, “Arcadian” features worldwide star Nicolas Cage, known from such blockbusters as “Face/Off”, “Ghost Rider”, “Lord of War” and “National Treasure”.
