The two companies will develop, produce and distribute new film and television content across JSBC and Relativity’s platforms.

Relativity’s existing presence in China is underpinned by its ownership of SkyLand Entertainment, a film distribution and financing company headquartered in Beijing.

Originally launched as a joint venture between Relativity, IDG China Media Fund and SAIF Partners, SkyLand is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Relativity and maintains a close strategic relationship with the government-run distributor Huaxia Film Distribution Co. Recent Relativity films released in China include Immortals, Mirror Mirror, and Free Birds.

Relativity’s other films include the eight-time Oscar nominee The Social Network as well as Limitless and two-time Oscar winner The Fighter. Upcoming films include Earth to Echo and Nicholas Sparks’ The Best of Me.
