More2Screen has been appointed by Eagle Rock Entertainment to distribute to cinemas worldwide a stunning new concert film by Peter Gabriel, Back To Front. Filmed live at the O2 London, it combines the latest 4K Ultra High Definition technology with a 5.1 surround sound mix and marks the 25th anniversary of the landmark album So.
