“Quantcast’s omnichannel audience solutions connected us with a segment of the market we were missing, breaking through the noise to deliver engaged moviegoing audiences.”

Lionsgate UK partnered with their agency, Carat, to find fans interested in Nicolas Cage’s cult hero status to promote their quirky action-comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. To complement their broadcast TV buys and reach cord-cutting audiences with their video movie trailers, they wanted a partner who could reach this unique audience on streaming platforms and apps.


Tapping into Quantcast’s omnichannel audience solutions, Carat partnered with Quantcast to launch a Connected TV (CTV) campaign paired with interest-based audiences. Using demographics and keywords, they built a custom persona, ages 18-44, interested in action films, comedies, and the movie’s starring actors, including Nicolas Cage, Pedro Pascal, and Tiffany Haddish. Ara™, Quantcast’s AI and machine learning engine, modeled the unique habits and interests of these moviegoing audiences, finding audiences that align with this unique premise and ensemble.


Quantcast’s ability to unlock real-time relevant movie audiences drove significant video engagement with The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent trailer across smart TV channels beating the target engagement level by 50% and opening the door to incremental moviegoing audiences.
