      LIONSGATE UK ACQUIRES UK RIGHTS TO LAIKA’S COMEDY-ADVENTURE ANIMATION “MISSING LINK”

      Embargoed until 8am GMT Wednesday 13th June. Lionsgate UK announced today that they have acquired the UK rights to MISSING LINK, an animated comedy-adventure produced by LAIKA, the animation studio behind the Academy Award? nominated Kubo and the Two Strings, The Boxtrolls, ParaNorman, and Coraline. AGC International, the international sales and distribution division of Stuart Ford’s AGC Studios, ?is handling international sales and orchestrated the deal with Lionsgate UK. ?LAIKA and AGC cemented a number of other key international distribution deals at the Cannes market where the film was one of the most high profile titles. Footage was screened today at CineEurope in Barcelona as part of a UK specific segment to the Lionsgate annual presentation.

      Bursting with humor, heart, and a profound message of acceptance and finding one’s place, MISSING LINK is written and directed by Oscar? nominee Chris Butler (ParaNorman).? LAIKA’s head of production and Oscar? nominee Arianne Sutner (ParaNorman, Kubo and the Two Strings) is producing with Travis Knight, who earned an Academy Award? nomination and BAFTA win for his directorial debut on Kubo.

      The charismatic Sir Lionel Frost (voiced by Hugh Jackman) considers himself to be the world’s foremost investigator of myths and monsters.? The trouble is none of his small-minded high-society peers seems to recognize this.? Sir Lionel’s last chance for acceptance by the adventuring elite rests on traveling to America’s Pacific Northwest to prove the existence of a legendary creature. A living remnant of Man’s primitive ancestry. The Missing Link.? Zach Galifianakis is Mr. Link:? the slightly silly, surprisingly smart and soulful beast upon whom Sir Lionel’s dreams depend.? As species go, he’s as endangered as they get; he’s the last of his kind, and he’s lonely. Proposing a daring quest to seek out his rumored distant relatives, he enlists Sir Lionel’s help in an odyssey around the world to find the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Together with Adelina Fortnight (voiced by Zoe Saldana), an independent and resourceful adventurer who possesses the only known map to the group’s secret destination, the unlikely trio embarks on a riotous rollercoaster of a ride.? Along the way, our fearless explorers encounter more than their fair share of peril, stalked at every turn by dastardly villains seeking to thwart their mission. Through it all, Mr. Link’s disarming charm and good-humored conviction provide the emotional and comedic foundation of this fun-filled family film.

      In addition to Jackman, Saldana and Galifianakis, the estimable voice cast boasts a roster of internationally renowned and award-winning actors from all corners of the world.? Oscar? winner Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility), Stephen Fry (The Hobbit), Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Matt Lucas (Alice In Wonderland), David Walliams (Little Britain), Amrita Acharia (Game of Thrones) and Ching Valdes-Aran (Nurse Jackie) bring their extraordinary talents to this globe-trotting spectacle.

      LAIKA has a track record of being industry leaders in animation, and Missing Link is shaping up to add to their pedigree – it’s a refreshing, unique, charming film that we are delighted to be adding to our 2019 theatrical slate,” comments Zygi Kamasa, CEO and Nicola Pearcey, President UK, EMEA Strategy & Operations for Lionsgate UK.

      We are thrilled to partner with Lionsgate as our UK distributor,” said Travis Knight, LAIKA’s President & CEO.? “They understand LAIKA’s mission to make engaging films that matter to our audiences.? Missing Link is in very good hands with Lionsgate’s exceptional team.”
