Under this exclusive agreement, Four Star Films will distribute Central Partnership International titles with the highest box office potential in the region. In addition to theatrical releases, Four Star Films has the option to manage other types of distribution rights. Content will be dubbed in English and demonstrated with localised subtitles.
