LOS ANGELES, Sept. 17, 2014 – Inception Media Group, LLC, a diversified media company specializing in the production, acquisition and distribution of entertainment content, has acquired the North American rights to Viktor for distribution across all platforms. The film stars Academy Award® nominee and Golden Globe winner Gérard Depardieu and Elizabeth Hurley.

Viktor was written and directed by Philippe Martinez and produced by Arnaud Frilley. The film was acquired from Saradan Media.

Viktor is a film of revenge and redemption set against a backdrop of a gorgeous, modern day Russian Federation that finds its inspiration in the tradition of action films like Clint Eastwood’s “Gran Torino” and Sam Mendes’ “Road to Perdition.” Told in a powerful, visually stunning cinematic style,  highlights Moscow’s thriving art scene, seductive nightlife and stunning architecture while Chechnya’s beautiful natural landscape and extraordinary redevelopment is seen through Viktor’s eyes.

In this fast-paced, film noir-style thriller, Viktor is riddled by guilt over the ruthless murder of his son in Moscow. Unconcerned for his own well-being, he enters a dark and violent Russian underworld of drugs, diamonds and smugglers, embarking on his own pitiless manhunt, consumed with the desire for vengeance. When he discovers he is to become a grandfather, it sparks hope for redemption and gives him reason to live … But now he must also keep her safe from the same killers.
