UTV World Movies acquires Steven Soderbergh’s CHE


Mumbai: World Movies has acquired CHE – a Cannes Nominee for Golden Palm 2008 directed by Steven Soderbergh.

This four-hour-plus epic about Latin American revolutionary Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara stars Benicio Del Toro in the title role, for which he won the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival in May this year.

UTV Entertainment Television COO Dilshad Master says, "It is the 80th anniversary of Che Guevara’s birth and also the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution. It is the perfect movie to bring to our viewers and deliver on our promise of showcasing the latest blockbusters from around the world. CHE by Steven Soderbergh is a breakthrough movie which has made it big at Cannes this year and clearly belongs on the World Movies platform. We will soon bring CHE to our viewers in India both theatrically and on World Movies."

CHE is the first full cinematic rendition of the life of Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara, an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, politician, author, physician, military theorist, and guerrilla leader who has been an inspiration for millions of people around the world.
