Daily | Sundance 2015 | Andrew Bujalski’s Results

21 hours ago | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Set in the world of Texas fitness instructors and starring some big-name actors, Andrew Bujalski’s Results looks at first like a concerted attempt to cross over into the world of mainstream rom-coms," begins Bilge Ebiri at Vulture. "But look again." We're collecting reviews of Bujalski's followup to Computer Chess and before that, Beeswax, Mutual Appreciation and Funny Ha Ha. Results features Guy Pearce, Kevin Corrigan and Cobie Smulders. "A perfectly chosen cast sells this unhurried comedy," finds John DeFore in the Hollywood Reporter. » - David Hudson »

Sundance 2015: Results, Entertainment and The Witch

22 hours ago | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

He may not be your bag, but it’s tough to deny that Andrew Bujalski is one of the most distinctive American independent filmmakers working today. So distinctive that even when he sets his sights on the pseudo-pedestrian genre of the romantic comedy, he finds a way to completely reconfigure the shape of its central love triangle. In Results, Trevor (Guy Pearce) is an Australian in Austin who owns the Power 4 Life fitness studio, living and breathing his own advertising mantras about self-improvement. The recently divorced, suddenly rich Danny (Kevin Corrigan, brilliant) is new in town and eager to buy […] »

Sundance Review: In 'Results,' Andrew Bujalski and Guy Pearce Riff on the Romantic Comedy Formula

28 January 2015 4:35 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

From "Funny Haha" to "Computer Chess," Andrew Bujalski's movies relish the art of understatement. His fifth feature, "Results," is at once the most distinctive example of that approach and an attempt to broaden its appeal by adopting the mold of something else entirely — a far more formulaic romantic comedy. While the project counts Guy Pearce among its leads and sports more advanced production values than Bujalski's other work, the narrative contains a unique texture. Though hardly a singular achievement on par with its precedents in the filmmaker's career, "Results" shows the first indication of Bujalski's ability to tell stories on a larger scale. Pearce's role as muscular Austin-based gym owner Trevor strikes an amusing contrast with the movie's other bumbling male figure, lonely divorcee Danny (Kevin Corrigan), a chubby, affluent shell of a man living alone in his hulking, empty mansion. Out of sheer boredom, he hires Trevor's gym to. »

Sundance Review: Andrew Bujalski’s ‘Results’ Starring Cobie Smulders, Guy Pearce & Kevin Corrigan

28 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The culture of self-improvement, those who try and “actualize” goals and those who believe the myths of such mantras, are explored with mixed “Results” in Andrew Bujalski’s latest comedy, a funny, lighthearted, and uneven effort. But given his more cynical movie track record, it’s a weirdly optimistic and well-adjusted movie despite its dysfunctional characters. Cobie Smulders stars as Kat, an abrasive and intense physical fitness personal trailer with a lot of hostility and anger issues. We’re introduced to the character going for a speed jog through her neighborhood of Austin, Texas as she spots and chases down a client and aggressively reminds them they’re late on payments. But the gym “Power 4 Life” — physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellness being the four elements in question — is not even her business, it’s Trevor’s (Guy Pearce). Trevor, a health instructor and true believer, talks the talk and »

Magnolia Pictures is acquiring worldwide distribution rights to director Sean Baker’s “Tangerine,” which stars trans actresses Mya Taylor and Kitana Kiki Rodriguez as two working girls in search of a wayward pimp on a fateful Christmas Eve in Hollywood.

The Duplass brothers executive produced the film, which was produced by Through Films and Baker’s longtime collaborators Darren Dean and Shih-Ching Tsou.

Sundance: Magnolia Pictures Snags Rights to ‘Tangerine’

27 January 2015 8:48 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Magnolia Pictures has nabbed worldwide distribution rights to “Tangerine,” one of the Sundance Film Festival’s buzziest titles.

The deal is in the high six figures and closed in the early morning hours on Tuesday. At various points, A24 and IFC had been circling the picture.

The film will get a traditional, nationwide theatrical release later this year. “Tangerine” has generated a great deal of press attention because director Sean Baker and cinematographer Radium Cheung shot the picture using an iPhone.

The film stars trans actresses Mya Taylor and Kitana Kiki Rodriguez in their bigscreen debuts as two prostitutes looking for a pimp on Christmas Eve in Hollywood. Baker co-wrote the film with Chris Bergoch.

This film is the second Sundance acquisition for Magnolia. Earlier in the festival, the studio nabbed “Results,” a comedy with Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders playing personal trainers.

The deal was negotiated by Magnolia senior »

Watch: Nicole Kidman Talks 'Strangerland' at Sundance (Exclusive Video Interview)

24 January 2015 4:40 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Nicole Kidman is one of our most fearless actresses, from her Oscar-winning role as a depressed Virginia Woolf in "The Hours" and warbling woman of the night in "Moulin Rouge!" to the grieving mother in "Rabbit Hole,"  aggressive newswoman on the rise in "To Die For," and sexy turn in "Paperboy." I talked to her on a chilly balcony overlooking Main Street right before her latest film "Strangerland" made its debut in the World competition.   "Strangerland" is a gorgeously shot moody outback thriller shot in Alice Springs about a pharmacist (Joseph Fiennes, replacing originally cast Guy Pearce) and his wife (Kidman) who move to a new town after their sex-crazed 15-year-old daughter has an affair with a teacher. They haven't had a chance to settle down when the girl and her younger brother vanish during a dust storm, presumably into the desert, spawning all sorts of talk and suspicion as the town police. »

The End of the Tour may have a distribution deal with A24

23 January 2015 9:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having only just starting in the Us, it seems that some of the line-up at this year’s Sundance Film Festival is too good to turn down.

In what would be the fourth sale already before the festival gets into full swing, distributors A24 are considering picking up the rights to The End of the Tour, the new drama from James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now) starring Jason Segal (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Jesse Eisenberg (The Double).

Receiving its premiere tonight at the festival, the film is loose adaptation of David Lipsky’s Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace, in which the Rolling Stone reporter (played by Eisenberg) spent five days on the road with the late writer David Foster Wallace (Segel) conducting interviews for the book, which was released a year and a half after Wallace’s death.

Sundance: Cobie Smulders On the Freedom 'How I Met Your Mother' Has Afforded Her

23 January 2015 7:28 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Since saying goodbye to CBS's mega-hit sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" last year in a series finale that left fans of the show divided, Canadian actress Cobie Smulders has remained in the spotlight thanks to her ties to Marvel and their "Avengers" franchise. As Agent Maria Hill, she appeared in last year's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and on the small screen in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," and this summer she'll reprise the role for "Avengers: Age of Ultron." But at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Smulders is set to receive a lot of attention not because of Marvel, but her performances in two other the most hotly anticipated films premiering in the U.S. competition: "Results" and "Unexpected." In the former, directed by Sundance alum Andrew Bujalski, Smulders stars with Guy Pearce as a pair of personal trainers whose lives are upended by the actions of a new client. »

7 Beloved Movies You Didn't Know Debuted At Sundance

23 January 2015 12:49 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah has always been a place for independent spirit, unique storytelling and movies that challenge the so-called "rules" of film making.

Often, this translates to weird, unmarketable character studies that either never see the light of day or are shoved off onto VOD platforms without so much as a single advertisement. But this isn't always the case. In fact, some of the most beloved, iconic films of the last 20 years got their start in the many hallowed screens scattered across the small snow-covered city.

Sundance Opens With Hot Titles Selling Fast

22 January 2015 5:13 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Before a single film had officially been shown at Sundance, the market was already heating up with five high-profile titles already off the table or in a position to sell.

Variety has confirmed that A24 is in pursuit of “End of The Tour,” starring Jason Segel as David Foster Wallace and Jesse Eisenberg as a Rolling Stone journalist interviewing him. Two weeks ago, Fox Searchlight picked up Noah Baumbach’s “Mistress America.” Magnolia landed “Results,” a comedy starring Guy Pearce as a personal trainer. Lionsgate bought “Don Verdean,” a comedy that mixes archaeology and religion from the creators of “Napoleon Dynamite,” and Relativity Sports scooped the documentary “In Football We Trust” which focuses on football in Salt Lake’s Polynesian community.

Sundance doesn’t officially start until Thursday evening, when three films start to screen. But an already robust market could grow even stronger on opening night if “The Bronze, »

Sundance/Slamdance 2015: Austin and Texas Connections

21 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

The Sundance Film Festival begins tomorrow -- Thursday, January 22 -- and runs through Saturday, February 1. Although Texas isn't as heavily represented as the last two years I've attended, I see plenty of Texas-related content to choose from.

Local filmmaker Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess) wrote and directed Results, which was shot in Austin and stars Cobie Smulders and Guy Pearce. The comedy is about two incompatible personal trainers who experience more challenges than usual from a wealthy client's demands.

Texas actor Tye Sheridan (Mud, Joe) continues his run of Sundance appearances with a pair of movies premiering at the festival this year. Sheridan co-stars in the historical drama Last Days in the Desert, an addition to the trials and tribulations of Jesus' 40 days in the wilderness. Jesus (Ewan McGregor) struggles with the Devil for the fate of a family in crisis that he encounters in the desert.
