Sponsored by stars such as Sylvester Stallone, Matthew McConaughey and Mila Kunis, the brand new studio STX Entertainment offered the first presentation of its history within the framework of CinemaCon. Founded 18 months ago, this new brand aims to produce medium budget films, focusing on all the type of content that major studios neglect to pay attention to overproductions.
STX Entertainment, which has already premiered films such as “El Niño” (a $ 10 million horror film that has already grossed 70 million globally), “Secretos de una obsesión” (remake of El secreto de los ojos) and “The gift”, revealed a promising catalog of films that, due to their reasonable budgets, promise to become reducible at the box offices around the world.
