Other theatricals slated for opening weekend include ‘Rob Roy‘; ‘The Madness Of King George‘ and ‘Much Ado About Nothing‘. In addition, MGM HD will feature its original production HD magazine show Big Screen.

MGM Networks senior VP Matthew Baxter said, "The launch of MGM HD offers audiences in Russia and the former Soviet Republics the most diverse movie selection from our prestigious library shown in the most advanced technology. We are thrilled to add this new dimension to our relationship with some existing clients, as well as welcoming new platforms and consumers across the region. The launch of this MGM HD channel enhances our strategy of delivering localized channels to multiple platform partners across the region."

In addition, MGM Networks has just launched a local language feed in Croatia to all its subscribers across the country. The service will be subtitled into Croatian, marking 26 languages that MGM Networks broadcasts in across the globe.
