Todd Berger's Apocalyptic 'It's A Disaster' Goes to Laub and Berger's Oscilloscope

23 August 2012 9:42 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Oscilloscope has picked up "It's A Disaster" for North American distribution, set for early 2013 release. The Todd Berger film premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival this Spring, and stars Julia Stiles, David Cross, America Ferrera, Erinn Hayes, Rachel Boston, Kevin M. Brennan, Jeff Grace and Blaise Miller. The ensemble comedy is set during a "couples brunch" of eight friends who suddenly move from relationship dramas to an apocalyptic bomb explosion. Oscilloscope's David Laub and Dan Berger are now steering the indie company in the wake of the loss of founder Adam Yauch, who died of cancer in May, as former president David Fenkel starts his new company A24, which will be trawling for pick-ups at Toronto. Laub calls the film "a real gem," adding that "Todd has combined a perceptive, Woody Allen-esque relationship comedy with a unique take on the apocalypse film, and in the process enlivened both genres and created. »

La Film Fest 2012 Review: It's A Disaster

26 June 2012 3:05 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Todd Berger's new film, It's A Disaster premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival last week. It stars and ensemble cast that includes Julia Stiles, David Cross, America Ferrera, Rachel Boston, Erinn Hayes, Kevin Brennan, Jeff Grace and Blaise Miller. I hesitate to write anything more than a vague review because this is the type of film that is best seen without knowing anything about it. It begins with Tracy (Julia Stiles), and Glenn (David Cross) arriving at Emma and Pete Mandrake's (Erinn Hayes and Blaise Miller, respectively) house for a couple's brunch. Tracy and Glenn have only recently started seeing each other, which is immediately apparent. However, the three other couples have been friends for a long time. This sets up a fantastic »

Todd Berger's comedy drama about four couples spending their last night on earth together deserves a wide audience

At the after-party for the Los Angeles film festival's premiere of Todd Berger's comedy drama, It's a Disaster, at the Hotel Figeuroa, the blue drinks tickets are being handed over at the bar faster than you can say "not another apocalyptic couples brunch movie". Around the pool, actor David Cross, is being asked for possibly the 100th time if there's going to an Arrested Development film. "We were supposed to shoot in the next few days," he'd told the audience at the post-screening Q&A. "But I have yet to see a script or a contract." So that's that sorted. For now.

It's a Disaster is an absolute gem of a doomsday movie, about four couples who meet for brunch and find themselves in the middle of a chemical warfare attack, »
