Distributed by NEON, Harmony Korine's comedy marks the first Hollywood pic available in the States through EclairColor HDR technology

US distribution outfit NEON will release "The Beach Bum" in EclairColor HDR (High Dynamic Range) at select Alamo Drafthouse Cinema locations when it opens in the US this Friday 29 March.

“The Beach Bum” follows the hilarious misadventures of Moondog (Matthew McConaughey), a rebellious rogue who always lives life by his own rules. Co-starring Snoop Dog, Zac Efron, and Isla Fisher, the movie is a refreshingly original and subversive new comedy from director Harmony Korine (“Kids”, “Spring Breakers”). It also marks the first title available in EclairColor HDR across the US, and will hit Europe in EclairColor HDR on 28 March in Germany (Constantin Film) and 31 July in France (Mars Films).

“We are thrilled to have Alamo Drafthouse, a cinema chain heralded for its unique programming events and high exhibition standards, onboard for this EclairColor release,” adds Cedric Lejeune, VP of Technology for EclairColor.   

Eclair, a leader in content services for the motion picture and television industries (Ymagis Group – ISIN: FR0011471291, MAGIS, PEA-PME, TECH 40), mastered “The Beach Bum” in EclairColor at its Berlin facility.
