Founded in 2007, Music Box Films has quickly established itself as one of the leading distributors of foreign language, American independent, and documentary films in the US in theatres, on DVD/Blu-ray and via Video-on-Demand.
Past releases include the film adaptations of Stieg Larsson's trilogy of international mega selling novels; the first in the series, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, with over $10 million in US box office and one of the most popular international releases of the decade. Other past releases include the Golden Globe-nominated Israeli film GETT: THE TRIAL OF VIVIANE AMSALEM and the 2015 Academy Award®-winner for Best Foreign Language Film IDA, directed by Pawel Pawlikowski.
Current releases include Anne Fontaine’s World War II drama THE INNOCENTS and the official Swedish Oscar submission for Best Foreign Language Film A MAN CALLED OVE, based on the international best selling novel. Upcoming releases include the nature documentary SEASONS from the directors of WINGED MIGRATION, Terence Davies’ A QUIET PASSION starring Cynthia Nixon, and Francois Ozon’s FRANTZ.
