Hannover House Presents Summer Theatrical Schedule at CinemaCon

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - March 25, 2011) -  Hannover House will release five new feature films to theaters during the summer and early fall seasons with an exciting line-up to be presented at the CinemaCon Show in Las Vegas next week. Each of the theatrical titles will open in the key markets of New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and other top 20 DMAs, with significant, nationwide expansion plans slated for three of the five releases. Hannover House is the entertainment division of Target Development Group, Inc., (PINKSHEETS: TDGI).

The CinemaCon 2011 title line-up from Hannover House includes:

"Turtle: The Incredible Journey," a nature documentary and family adventure from director Nick Stringer ("National Geographic Explorer," "Meerkat Manor") will launch in selected markets June 24th, with a national expansion planned for mid-July. The film will be released to theaters in three formats: 35mm, Digital Cinema Prints and RealD 3D, following a release and expansion pattern mirroring the similarly-appealing "March of the Penguins." Hannover House is in negotiations with SeaWorld Parks for a variety of promotions that could support a much wider theatrical release for the film during the summer.

"All's Faire In Love," a major romantic comedy from director Scott Marshall starring Christina Ricci, Owen Benjamin, Cedric The Entertainer and Matthew Lillard, will launch to theaters beginning July 29th. The film will enjoy cross promotional support from a variety of Renaissance Faire events across the country throughout the summer, designed to build awareness and word of mouth for the theatrical release. The film was produced by Patriot Pictures ("Air Force One," "Material Girls").

"Girlfriend," the acclaimed drama from the Toronto International Film Festival and director Justin Lerner, will open in selected markets on September 9th. The film stars Jackson Rathbone, Shannon Woodward and an impressive debut performance by Evan Sneider, who portrays a teen with Down Syndrome.

"Thru The Moebius Strip," a $25-million dollar CGI animated feature from director Glenn Chaika ("The Adventures of Tom Thumb and Thumbelina"), Fantastic Films and CDG Studios, will launch September 30th in key markets. The breakthrough sci-fi adventure will be promoted through traditional theatrical means, and an additional "free comic book" promotion to distribute more than 500,000 copies of a 16-page, "Moebius Strip" teaser in theater lobbies during the summer.

"Cook County," the acclaimed festival drama from director David Pomes, featuring rapidly rising star Anson Mount (star of the upcoming new AMC-TV series "Hell on Wheels") will launch to theaters beginning October 28th. The gritty story of a drug ravaged family has been compared to "Winter's Bone" in both subject matter and intensity.

In addition to these CinemaCon announcements, Hannover House has acquired the distribution rights to three additional features, theatrical release details for which will be announced later.
