Sony Pictures

Whether you’re packaging, producing, buying, or selling a film, the SPC Advance Report is the only resource available with minimum guarantee advances across an entire slate of films.

The SPC Advance Report includes advances for all 175 films released by Sony Pictures Classics from 2004 to 2014. The advances total $233M, and range from $12K to $12M in all major genres, and several languages. In addition to minimum guarantee advances for 175 films, the workbook also includes box office data, release metrics, and performance ratios to help you in your research.

The minimum guarantee advances included in the report and workbook are primarily for United States distribution rights. However, nearly a quarter of the advances, cover two or three territories, such as the United States and the United Kingdom.

This invaluable resource provides producers, financiers, sales agents, and distributors vital insights for valuing and pricing speciality content in the theatrical market.

The SPC Advance Report is the only resource that provides independent film professionals with access to comprehensive distribution advances.
