The Beginning of Music Box Films
Founded in 2007, Music Box Films has quickly established itself as one of the leading movie distributors of non-English language feature films in the US in theatres, on DVD/Blu-ray and via Video-on-Demand.
Music Box’s release of Guillaume Canet’s 'Tell No One' was the most popular foreign-language film of 2008 and in 2010, the film adaptations of Stieg Larsson’s trilogy of international mega sellers dominated the foreign-language film market. The first in the series, 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', with over $10 million in US box office, was one of the most popular international releases of the decade.
Music Box Films is independently owned and operated by the Southport Music Box Corporation, which also owns and operates The Music Box Theatre, Chicago’s premiere venue for independent and foreign films.
