Lionsgate has formalized its relationship with independent distributor West Company via an output deal for all Lionsgate titles in Russia and other CIS countries. West Company just released The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 to a franchise-best $22M in Russia and the CIS on opening weekend. The film also scored the best non-holiday opening day in the territory’s history and the second-biggest overall opening of all time. The deal adds to agreements Lionsgate has been busy securing in order to create an international distribution network. Other offshore partners include Metropolitan Filmexport in France, StudioCanal in Germany, Nordisk Films in Scandinavia, Aurum Producciones in Spain and Roadshow Pictures in Australia. The Lionsgate-West Company deal does not alter Summit‘s output arrangement with Central Partnership in the CIS.
