Starz! To Premiere Memento

Starz Encore Group has acquired exclusive pay TV rights to independent
film Memento.

The film, nominated for Academy Awards for best original screenplay and best
editing, will premiere on the premium channel Starz! in June.

Starring Guy Pearce (LA Confidential) as Leonard, a man who has
apparently witnessed the violent death of his wife.

His plans to avenge her, however, are hampered by his short-term memory loss.

Opening last March on just 11 screens, Memento, produced and
distributed by Team Todd and Newmarket Capital Group, earned over $25 million at
the box office and has shipped nearly 1 million VHS/DVD video units.

Terms of the deal with Starz Encore were not disclosed.
