If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love.

TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILM TAPS KINO INDUSTRIES’

CtrlMOVIE TECHNOLOGY FOR UPCOMING

‘CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE’ INTERACTIVE FEATURE FILM

Berlanti Productions Joins Davis Entertainment and

Chooseco as Producers of the Interactive Feature

Los Angeles, CA – April 26, 2018 – Twentieth Century Fox Film (TCFF) today announced

that they are licensing Kino Industries’ CtrlMovie technology for the Studio’s upcoming

film, CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE. The patented technology will allow in-theater

audiences to control the characters’ action throughout the film using the app developed and

created by Kino. This is the first film in a potential multi-film partnership utilizing

this innovative technology. The announcement was made today during the CinemaCon

 presentation for TCFF in Las Vegas.

 

The film, based on the iconic 1980s book series that sold over 265 million copies

worldwide, is currently in development at TCFF with John Davis and John Fox of Davis

Entertainment, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions, and Shannon

Gilligan of Chooseco, the publisher of the “Choose Your Own Adventure” brand, attached

to produce. Kino Industries principals Chady Eli Mattar, Scott C. Silver and Tobias

Weber will serve as executive producers. Mike Ireland will oversee the project for

TCFF.

 

Using Kino’s simple, proprietary app on their smart devices, viewers vote to decide

what characters will do at pivotal points in the narrative. That means the same

film will have a different plot, ending and even running time depending on the

audience’s

unanimous choices. And unlike previous attempts at interactive filmmaking, it all

happens seamlessly, with no break in the onscreen action. The result is a deeply

 engaging and highly communal movie-watching experience, unlike anything that’s

come before.

 

“Bringing game changing, innovative technology to audiences and enhancing the cinematic

experience has always been a cornerstone of the Twentieth Century Fox brand and

our next venture is the outstanding CtrlMovie technology we are utilizing for CHOOSE

YOUR OWN ADVENTURE,” said TCFF President of Domestic Distribution Chris Aronson.

 “This interactive experience, and the passionate, creative team behind this project,

allow the true spirit of the beloved book series to fall into the hands of fans

around the world.”

 

“First and foremost, we are filmmakers whose goal is to preserve the communal,

in-theatre, big-screen experience. With CtrlMovie we will be expanding the art and science of

motion pictures by transporting audiences to a new realm of movie-going while providing

filmmakers, distributors and exhibitors with the tools, support and technology to

take them there,” says Kino Co-CEO Chady Eli Mattar. “We are thrilled that Fox has

opted to license our technology for their CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE films, which

 we expect to be the beginning of a new, long term partnership with the studio.”
