National Geographic Entertainment proclaimed the attainment of worldwide rights to the film “Blue Man Group: Mind Blast” for distribution to giant-screen, digital and IMAX® 3D and 2D theaters. The 3D live-action comedy, slated for release in Spring 2011, will feature an original screenplay and score and will star the group’s original cast members. “Blue Man Group: Mind Blast” is the fourth major film acquisition for NGE this year, following the Sundance hit “Amreeka,” opening in select cities throughout September; “City of Life and Death,” which screened this week at the 2009 Toronto Film Festival; and “The Wildest Dream,” which will be released in 2010 on IMAX® and giant screens worldwide and on 35 mm screens in the United States.
“National Geographic constantly strives to be a window to the world and all that’s in it. Our collaboration with Blue Man Group presents a further opportunity to take that challenge to an ever widening audience,” David Beal, president, NGE, said.
