In this weekend’s specialty box-office debuts, IFC Films hopes to replicate the critical and commercial success of Michael Winterbottom’s first amusing little travelogue/talker of a feature, The Trip, with a semi-sequel, The Trip To Italy. The second Trip again stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon; the entertainingly garrulous pair on yet another jaunt across restaurants, countryside and philosophy. The latest Trip will bow in NYC and La this weekend after a successful Australian run earlier this summer (or their winter).
Frank, a British-Irish-American drama from Magnolia Pictures featuring Michael Fassbender that had runs at Sundance and SXSW, bows in only one U.S. theater this weekend.

Distrib Films announced that it has picked up the U.S. rights to Philippe Garrel’s black and white, meta-like dramedy. A true family affair, Jealousy sees the Garrel clan in full force; Louis toplines again and a supporting perf from sis Esther Garrel (Bertrand Bonello’s House of Tolerance) in a text that is close to Philippe’s own personal family history. A summer theatrical release is planned.
Gist: Written by Philippe Garrel, Caroline Deruas, Marc Cholodenko and Arlette Langmann, Louis (Louis Garrel) leaves his wife Clothilde (Rebecca Convenant) and daughter Charlotte (Olga Milshtein) for a theater actress Claudia (Anna Mouglalis). Though she can’t get any work and they struggle to make money, their passion carries them through. However, it’s not long before the outside world creeps back in.
Worth Noting: This received film fest showings at the Venice and New York Film Festival.
