SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- November 06, 2012

Image Entertainment, Inc., a subsidiary of RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE),
has picked up all U.S. rights to the sci-fi thriller Stranded starring
Christian Slater (Interview with a Vampire, Bobby). Directed by Academy Award™
winner Roger Christian and produced by Minds Eye Entertainment in association
with Moving Pictures Media, the film also stars Brendan Fehr (Final
Destination, X-Men: First Class), Amy Matysio (Just Friends, Vampire Dog) and
Michael Therriault (Total Recall, “Covert Affairs”). The announcement was made
at AFM by Image Entertainment’s Chief Acquisition Officer, Bill Bromiley.

“We’re very pleased to continue doing business with our friends at Minds Eye
Entertainment,” commented Bromiley. “Our first project with Kevin and his team
was The Tall Man which was very successful for Image. We feel just as strongly
about Stranded and we know audiences will love it.”

“We’re happy that Image will be our partner once again,” commented Kevin
DeWalt, CEO/Producer of Minds Eye Entertainment. “We look forward to working
with them on the sci-fi suspense thriller that is Stranded.”

When four astronauts on board the Ark moonbase are unexpectedly struck by a
series of meteor blasts, Colonel Gerard Brauchman (Slater) and his crew work
to stabilize the base. After removing a stray meteor from the carbon dioxide
filter, they realize the spores on the meteor have the ability to replicate
cell structure, reproduce and mutate. Fascinated by the meteor’s uncanny
ability to replicate, the crew believes they have just discovered a scientific
phenomenon. But have they? Soon afterwards, the crew begins to realize they
are not alone. The presence on board begins to target each of them, leaving
those remaining to destroy it before all are killed. Stranded was produced by
Kevin DeWalt, Mark Montague and Isabella Battiston.
