Seven Arts Entertainment Announces the US Theatrical Release of "Drunkboat"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2012) - Seven Arts Entertainment Inc. ("Seven Arts") (NASDAQ: SAPX) today announced the US theatrical release of "Drunkboat" (the "Film"). The film will be released on Friday, July 13th, exclusively through AMC Movie Theatres throughout major cities to include Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Boston.

"Drunkboat" is the new tragi-comedy from playwright/director Bob Meyer, starring John Malkovich, John Goodman and Dana Delany. "Drunkboat" tells the story of Mort Gleason (Malkovich), who returns to the family home after a 25-year absence, where his sister (Delany) is raising her young son Abe. Abe is in the thrall of purchasing a sloop from an unscrupulous boat salesman (Goodman). Both powerful and touching, this film tells the story of a young man's dreams of sailing the world and an older man's reconciliation with his family.

Gabe Toro from IndieWire raves about the film, "It remains a pleasure to see, in Malkovich and Goodman, two canny pros at the top of their game".

"We are thrilled this picture will be released throughout the US and could not be more pleased to be working with AMC Theaters," said Peter Hoffman, CEO of Seven Arts. "This is a great movie that deserves to be shown to a wider audience."

Executive Producer Anthony Tomaska said, "Malkovich and Goodman are awesome together in this touching film."
