The latter agreed to pay $25 million for “CODA,” breaking the Sundance Film Festival’s previous record of $17.5 million and 69 cents for “Palm Springs.”

Through this deal, Apple bought worldwide right on the project, and rumor has it that is in talks to purchase the pre-sold international territories that financed the production.

“CODA” being part of Apple Studios was a news well-received by the markets, Apple stock price gaining more than 2% in today’s premarket session.
