BondIt Media Capital and Cineverse form Unique and Innovative Partnership to Finance Film Distribution

Partnership to Be Used as a Model for Future Cineverse Film Projects

LOS ANGELES and SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 7, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- BondIt Media Capital has closed a new co-financing partnership with Cineverse (NASDAQ: CNVS), an innovative streaming technology and entertainment company.  Through this deal, BondIt will provide financing to be used for North American production, acquisition, and/or distribution of film projects. 

The first example of this financing is in support of the distribution for Cineverse and Bloody Disgusting's upcoming Terrifier 3, the third installment in the worldwide cult horror phenomenon featuring Art the Clown.

Terrifier 2, produced on a micro-budget, went on to generate over $15 million at the worldwide box office as a breakout hit in 2022.  Following that success, Dark Age Cinema, along with The Coven, raised the production budget for Terrifier 3, set to come to theatres on October 11, 2024.

BondIt and Cineverse engaged in partnership discussions ahead of the newest installment of the horror franchise and have now closed financing that support Cineverse's domestic distribution rights for Terrifier 3, which wrapped production in April 2024 in New York.

"We're thrilled to be working with Chris, Gary, Yolanda and the full Cineverse team," said Matthew Helderman, BondIt Media Capital's CEO and Co-Founder. "Having worked with Cineverse a number of times over the years, the expansion of their business into larger tier projects like Terrifier 3 gave us the opportunity not only to partner on this genuinely exciting film that is the rare instance of an inependent project breaking through to the broader zeitgeist in the current marketplace, but also across a larger slate of opportunities we're now gearing up for throughout the remainder of 2024."

Added Cineverse Chairman and CEO Chris McGurk, "Given Terrifier 2's success both at the box office, with passionate fans of slasher movies, and as a mainstream pop culture phenomenon, there has been a tremendous amount of excitement building for Terrifier 3 – named one of USA Today's Top 10 most anticipated horror films of 2024.  We are grateful for the support from partners like BondIt that have put us in the advantageous position to have strong return on our investment in this franchise, along with Damien's unmatched creative genius."

BondIt Media Capital is coming off a market leading deal from Toronto with the Netflix acquisition on the Anna Kendrick directed and starring project Woman of the Hour which the company financed, and executive produced with AGC Studios last September. In addition, the company also racked up 2 Emmy wins for the BondIt financed and executive-produced film Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street for HBO.
