J T Mollner wrote and directed the Midnight selection that debut in Park City last month and follows a gang of outlaws that raid a frontier family home to hide out for the night.
What the invaders do not know is they have picked on the wrong household as a game of cat-and-mouse, role reversal and bloody revenge ensues.
Vmi Worldwide president Relis served as executive producer and has scheduled a February 13 market screening in Berlin at CinemaxX Studio 17.
Momentum Pictures will release the film theatrically later this year after securing rights in North America, Germany, and Latin America at the Afm in November.

Not unlike “The Hateful Eight,” “Outlaws & Angels” is a Grand Guignol nod to spaghetti Westerns that soon abandons the great outdoors for one equally bloody interior location. But Jt Mollner’s debut feature has its own distinctive plot arc and constant excesses, making for an assertively nasty frontier morality tale likely to win some cult admiration while repelling anyone looking for the return of wholesome Randolph Scott-type oaters. In contrast with “Eight,” the absence of marquee names behind and before the camera will make this strictly a niche commercial gamble; Momentum plans a summer U.S. release, with several European territories also sold.
A horrifically abrupt ending to two young women’s main-street promenade alerts 1887 Cuchillo, N.M., too late that its bank is being robbed. The related death of a government official further ensures a posse will be hot on the trail of the five masked outlaws, one »

Three bank robbers walk into a dysfunctional home on the prairie in Jt Mollner‘s cold-blooded Outlaws and Angels, filmed and premiering at Sundance in glorious 35mm. The premise naturally evokes Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, particularly when it comes to the outlaws, however light their presence may be. Amongst the three groups — the outlaws, the Tildon family and the law — angels, too, are largely missing in the film.
Opening on a small farm estate we are briefly introduced to the Tildon clan: patriarch George (Ben Browder) is a tough recovering alcoholic who attempts to get right with the Lord, even if his daughters Flo (Francesca Eastwood) and Charlotte (Madisen Beaty) aren’t buying it. Short on life outside of the homestead (they’re told most of the eligible bachelors in town have taken ill) they remain the ward of George until they are liberated by a band of outlaws. »

It’s hard to mention The Fosters, which returns to Freeform on Monday Jan, 25 for the second installment of its third season, without a discussion of diversity. Since its premiere, the show has been lauded for its diverse cast and portrayal of relationships not often seen on television – particularly on teen TV – such as same-sex relationships and those in a mixed and blended family.
Moreover, the show has always used what makes it different – its fearlessness in representing a wide range of issues that affect real teens (and not just the wealthy, white ones) – to create type of drama necessary to fuel and sustain a long-running soap. Unfortunately, the Foster family enters the second half of the third season on shaky ground, and the show itself follows suit – with a lackluster episode that wavers rather than building to an exciting finish.
