Breaking Glass Pictures is proud to announce a new venture as it opens a United Kingdom distribution label. With a rapid release of three titles in the 4th quarter, Breaking Glass UK will release one title per month of varying genres as it continues to grow internationally. Stemming from their fully developed International Sales Division, Breaking Glass Pictures’ venture into the United Kingdom will be their first foray into international distribution.
Named after David Bowie’s 1995 hit Breaking Glass, CEO Rich Wolff and Co-President Richard Ross began Breaking Glass Pictures with expansion in mind.
“It’s what we’ve always been aiming for. We want to bring our success from the US to the UK”, said Wolff.
“After celebrating our third anniversary in North America, Breaking Glass Pictures is proud to announce our launch in the UK through Lace Digital Media Group. We promise an exciting, diverse mix of product that will include horror, documentary, LGBT and star-driven independent fare,” said Ross.
Breaking Glass UK will debut with the 8 October release of the festival hit “Into the Lion’s Den”, a gay thriller that explores the dangers of repressed lust and the horror of an encounter with fate. “Into the Lion’s Den” puts a disturbing twist on the road trip genre, showing the dark side of a good time.
Bored with the West Hollywood scene, best friends Michael (Ronnie Kroell), Johnny (Jesse Archer) and Ted have embarked on a cross-country road trip from LA to New York City. Though their friendship hits a few speed bumps along the way, the trio decides to have one last hurrah during their last night on the road. That’s when fate brings them to The Lion’s Den, a secluded backwoods bar where not everything is as it seems. As the three out-of-towners toast the end of their journey, someone at the bar is watching them, and setting a deadly trap. Now, as closing time draws near, a night of unspeakable horrors is about to begin…
Jesse Archer (“Violet Tendencies”, “Going Down in LA-LA Land”) and Ronnie Kroell (“Eating Out: Drama Camp”, Bravo’s “Make Me a Supermodel”) headline this bold, uncompromising thriller that plunges into the depths of human depravity. Featuring adult film star Jake Steel and directed by Dan Lantz (“Bloodlust Zombies”), “Into the Lion’s Den” is a twisted nightmare that viewers won’t soon forget.
“Into the Lion’s Den” premiered at the Reel Affirmations LGBT Film Festival and was an Official Selection at the Reeling 30 Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Washington Blade called the film “genuinely suspenseful and nerve-jangling.”
