Eureka Entertainment is one of the leading independent distributors of Blu-rays in the UK. Its UK catalogue contains an extensive collection of classic and cult films, initially released in limited-edition sets. Its collection spans many genres including, amongst others, silent movies, world cinema, action, martial arts, horror, indie dramas, and Hollywood classics.

Managing Director of Eureka Entertainment, Ruth Schofield, added, “With Kevin’s return to the company it seemed like a logical move to capitalize on his knowledge of multi-territory distribution and finally fulfill the desires of our fans. We’re asked daily when we will be able to distribute in North America, and I’m very happy that the day has come to be able to make those fans’ wishes come true.”

The first Eureka releases distributed by MVD Entertainment in North America will be one of the most important and influential films in the early history of American genre cinema, Paul Leni’s The Cat and the Canary, and the action-packed superhero spectacle starring Jet Li, Black Mask. Both titles will be released in both territories and will be available for purchase later in the year.
