In what Cloud Ten Pictures is calling a “breakthrough distribution deal,” they announced the sale of their film distribution rights to secular distributor Columbia Tri-Star Home Entertainment. “We have always dreamed of the day when truly Christian films would have the kind of distribution and accessibility that only a major studio can have,” says Cloud Ten Pictures CEO Peter Lalonde. “And now with our new relationship with Columbia Tri-Star Home Entertainment, we are seeing the fulfillment of that dream.”

Paul Lalonde, the co-CEO with his brother Peter, agrees. “Christians make up the vast majority of the American
population. Now they don’t have to dig so hard to find the kinds of movies that they want to see—they’re right there, on the shelves with the latest studio blockbusters.”

The Cloud Ten Pictures titles include:

  • Left Behind (Kirk Cameron)
  • Left Behind II: Tribulation Force (Kirk Cameron)
  • Waterproof (Burt Reynolds)
  • Revelation (Jeff Fahey, Carol Alt)
  • Deceived (Judd Nelson, Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr.)
  • Tribulation (Gary Busey, Howie Mandel, Margot Kidder)
  • Judgment (Corben Bernsen, Mr. T)
  • The Miracle of the Cards (Kirk Cameron, Catherine Oxenberg and Richard Thomas)
  • Apocalypse (Richard Nestor, Leigh Lewis)

The Lalonde brothers founded Cloud Ten Pictures in 1996. The Financial Post labeled it “one of the
most successful independent studios in the English-speaking world.” Cloud Ten Pictures can be found on the World Wide
