Award-winning animation studio Laika has named Park Circus to be the repertory sales representative for the studio’s award-winning library of legacy films. The BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning Laika is best known for its five Oscar-nominated films: Missing Link (2019); Kubo and the Two Strings (2016); The Boxtrolls (2014); ParaNorman (2012), and Coraline (2009). The agreement covers most international territories in addition to the United States and Canada.
David Burke, Laika’s chief marketing officer and senior vice president of operations, and Park Circus CEO Mark Hirzberger-Taylor made the announcement today.
The announcement comes as Laika celebrates its fifteenth anniversary and the recent announcement of its five films now available across a wide array of digital and streaming platforms.
“Laika is known for its unique approach to filmmaking, enhancing the artisanal stop-motion technique with technological innovations,” says Burke. “Similarly, Park Circus takes a bespoke approach to its library of films, introducing each film to entirely new audiences by drawing upon its curatorial judgment and keen marketing savvy. We’re thrilled to align our missions and to start working together to bring Laika’s storytelling to even larger numbers of movie fans around the world.”
“We at Park Circus could not be more delighted to be working with Laika and their award-winning library of films, particularly at a time of such challenge for our industry,” said Herzberger-Taylor. “As huge fans of their wonderfully innovative and original film-making style, we cannot wait to apply the unique Park Circus treatment to Laika’s incredible catalogue, bringing much-needed joy and cinematic brilliance to audiences worldwide.”
