Shailene Woodley’s ‘White Bird in a Blizzard’ Gets North American Distribution

11 April 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Magnolia Pictures has acquired the North American distribution rights to the Shailene Woodley-starrer “White Bird in a Blizzard” and plans a theatrical release for later this year.

Gregg Araki directed from his own script, based on Laura Kasischke’s novel. The drama also stars Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane and Angela Bassett.

The film was produced by Pascal Caucheteux, Sebastien K. Lemercier, Alix Madigan-Yorkin, Pavlina Hatoupis and Gregg Araki. Why Not Productions, Desperate Pictures, Orange Studio and Wild Bunch are the production companies on board.

Woodley stars as a college-bound teenager who is just discovering her sexuality when her mother (Green) disappears — an event that barely registers with Woodley’s character. But as time passes, she begins to come to grips with how deeply the disappearance has affected her life.

New Images Of Shailene Woodley & Eva Green In 'White Bird In A Blizzard' As Magnolia Picks Up The Film

11 April 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Gregg Araki, the filmmaker who brought us "Mysterious Skin," "The Doom Generation" and "Smiley Face" among others, is back with his next effort, "White Bird In A Blizzard." And though it premiered back in January at the Sundance Film Festival, it has taken a few months to lock up distribution, but now has a home. Magnolia Pictures has announced they've snapped up the North American rights to the film. Based on the novel by Laura Kasischke and starring Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane and Angela Bassett, the 1988-set film follows Kat, a college-bound teenager who is just discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality when her mother (Green), a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, Kat barely registers her mother's absence and certainly doesn't blame her doormat of a father, Brock (Meloni), for the loss. »

Captain America and the superhero movies Hollywood has tried to bury

26 March 2014 6:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Superheroes might be big business in the movie world right now, but that hasn't always been the case. Despite the success of the early Christopher Reeve Superman films and Tim Burton's Batman outings, the genre was something of a poisoned chalice for filmmakers throughout the '80s and '90s. Buoyed by Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie, Hollywood mined the pages of DC and Marvel Comics in search of the next big thing. Unfortunately, small budgets and shaky scripts resulted in a string of flops ranging from Supergirl (1983) to Howard the Duck (1986). And yet, impossibly, things would get even worse for the comic book genre in the years that followed.

In 1989, the same year Tim Burton's Batman hit cinemas, Dolph Lundgren led The Punisher, a violent action-thriller based on Marvel character Frank Castle. A vigilante who takes revenge on criminals after his family is murdered in a mob killing, »
