JUAN OF THE DEAD (JUAN DE LOS MUERTOS) Now Has US Distribution, Which Means You Need To See This When It Comes Out

Javi here. So, this is very good news indeed. 2011 will be the year where I had a big interest in Spanish movies. Director Alejandro Brugue's politically relevant zombie comedy, JUAN OF THE DEAD, is much more than a "Spanish SHAUN OF THE DEAD." Where SHAUN was poking fun at the genre, JUAN pokes fun at the Cuban culture and politics through a zombie apocalypse. Variety now reports that the movie has gained a US distributor through Focus World, which is a digital/VOD distribution arm of Focus Features.

The details of the distribution appear to be exclusive to digital and VOD, so you can see it from the cable box top, iTunes, Amazon and all of the other digital services. Then after April, it might be getting a separate theatrical run from a different distributor. There's no set release date, but you bet I'll let you guys know when it comes out. Read my review here.
