‘Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn’ North American Film Rights Acquired by Magnolia Pictures, Film Releases Later This Year


Magnolia Pictures has acquired the North American rights to Radu Jude’s “Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn” which is set to release later this year. The deal was negotiated by Magnolia EVP Dori Begley and SVP of Acquisitions John Von Thaden, and by Ioanna Stais of Heretic Outreach on behalf of the filmmakers. The film was filmed in its entirety during Bucharest’s lockdown and ultimately won the Best Film award at the Berlin Golden Bear Internation Film Festival. “Bad Luck or Loony Pron follows a high school teacher struggling with the fallout of her sex tape leaking online.

“BAD LUCK BANGING OR LOONY PORN is a wildly entertaining and imaginative film with a lot on its mind,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “Radu Jude has staked his claim as a high priest of cinema.” Radu Jude added, “I sincerely hope this film will be ‘a consummation devoutly to be wished’, as Shakespeare wrote.”
