Twentieth Century Fox to distribute The Passion of the Christ
After the resounding box office success of Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, theatrical distributor Newmarket have turned to Twentieth Century Fox to deal with the home video release.
This move from a small scale distributor to a company the size of Twentieth Century Fox clearly signifies the impact the film has had on audiences already. It also means consumers can expect a better - or at least bigger-budgeted - package than would otherwise have been made available.
The DVD of The Passion of the Christ, currently showing in cinemas nationwide, is expected around August or September.
