Three-year-old digital distributor GoDigital has recapitalized and acquired video-on-demand rival Might Entertainment and its library, for a combined catalogue of over 1000 titles. Under 27-year-old wunderkind president Logan Mulvey, GoDigital has released over 300 films through direct deals with iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Playstation, Xbox, Vudu, Dish, inDemand and TVN. GoDigital's Mulvey will be the merged company's president, and will absorb the Might Entertainment library and its output arrangements as well as its cable, satellite, IPTV and broadband VOD distribution deal with Lionsgate.

Might co-founders Andy Bohn and Jason Beck released over 30 films in two years of operation (including Music Box's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" trilogy, "Mesrine: Killer Instinct," "Mesrine: Public Enemy #1," "Even the Rain," "Mademoiselle Chambon" and "Winnebago Man"). In fall 2011, Might secured financial backing from former Facebook Chief Strategic Officer Chris Kelly and FreeCredit.com founder Ed Ojdana to acquire key digital rights to the 700-plus title Kino/Lorber library. Bohn and Beck will join GoDigital's Board of Directors. Mulvey will continue to manage GoDigital's staff of ten in distribution, marketing and digital delivery while Bohn and Beck will oversee business development and content acquisitions.

“Armed with an expanded library, a VOD arrangement with Lionsgate and Andy Bohn and Jason Beck’s professional network," said CEO Logan Mulvey, "GoDigital is well-positioned for success in the growing marketplace of digital and VOD distribution.” 

GoDigital will be looking to acquire films at Sundance, competing with digital distribution rivals Cinetic Rights Management (CRM) and Gravitas Ventures.

The GoDigital upcoming releases slate includes "The Trouble With Bliss," starring Michael C. Hall, Lucy Liu, Chris Messina, and Peter Fonda, Kino Lorber’s "The Mill and The Cross," starring Rutger Hauer, Michael York, and Charlotte Rampling, and Ambush Entertainment’s "Unraveled," a doc about notorious lawyer/embezzler Marc Dreier.
