Director Terence Malick's Oscar nominated adventure movie The New World, inspired by the Pocahontas legend, will hit Indian theatres next week.

E-City Films releases the film that explores the story of love, loss and discovery on April 7.

"The multiplex revolution has paved way for the English movie market in India, which can be pegged at Rs1 billion approximately. We are looking at a 30 percent growth in this business. It is an excellent business arena to broach upon", he added.

The film is the remarkable journey of love, lost and found that takes Pocahontas from the untouched beauty of the Virginia wilderness to the upper crust of English society.

The movie brings to light North America in the early years of the 17th century - a vast land of seemingly endless primeval wilderness, populated by an intricate network of tribal cultures.

The action adventure features Colin Farrell, Q'orianka Kilcher, Christian Bale, Christopher Plummer, Michael Greyeyes, August Schellenberg and Wes Studi in important roles.

The film is produced by Sarah Green and edited by Richard Chew, Hank Corwin and Saar Klein. Emmanuel Lubezki, who was nominated in this year's Oscar Awards for Best Achievement in Cinematography, is the director of cinematography.
