Apartment 1303, the remake of the Japanese supernatural horror film, will premiere simultaneously in 3D in theaters and online this summer. Based on the novel by Kei Ôishi, Apartment 1303 is directed by Michael Taverna and stars Mischa Barton (The O.C.), Rebecca De Mornay (Mother's Day), and Julianne Michelle (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps).
Like the original, it centers on a woman who moves into the high-rise apartment of the title to investigate the death of her sister, who had plunged from the window not long before. She soon encounters many of her strange neighbors, including a young girl who may know the building's evil secret... and grows to suspect she may wind up sharing her sister's fate.
Distributor Gravitas Ventures announced they have have acquired theatrical and digital rights to the film from MonteCristo International, and will launch the On Demand version online July 17th, followed by the 3D theatrical release on July 25th. This marks the first time an independent feature is being released theatrically in 3D and online simultaneously.
