Specialty Box Office Preview: ‘The Trip To Italy’, ‘Frank’, ‘Jealousy’, ‘Life After Beth’, ‘Fort McCoy’

14 August 2014 6:29 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

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. Frank centers on an eccentric band, giving Fassy fans a chance to hear the Oscar-nominated actor sing, albeit from behind a mask (he’s not bad, actually).

Other notable new films include Philippe Garrel‘s Jealousy, which Distrib Films will expand »

Review: WWII Drama 'Fort McCoy' Starring Eric Stoltz, Camryn Manheim, Seymour Cassel And More

14 August 2014 4:01 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

WWII continues to be rich dramatic territory for filmmakers for a number of reasons, not only because it's one of the most important events in modern history, but also due to the many avenues from which a global conflagration can be viewed. But writer and co-director Kate Connor's debut feature "Fort McCoy" is an example of what happens when you try to shoehorn as many topics and themes from WWII as you can into one movie. Overstuffed, trite and empty, "Fort McCoy" attempts to mix heavy drama, slapstick comedy and romance in the unwieldy package of a coming of age story set in the summer of 1944. The film flounders on all fronts, proffering a naive and simplistic view of the murky territory between good and evil. It's hard to give the movie a logline, as there's not so much of a single defined plot, but rather many underdeveloped subplots »

Extended 'Smaug', 'Lucy' and 'Kill the Messenger' in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

3 June 2014 4:07 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Today's bulletin includes a new PG-13 rating for the extended version of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and a pair of R ratings for Luc Besson's Lucy and the Jeremy Renner-led thriller Kill The Messenger. Finally, for whatever reason, Relativity has decided to surrender the R rating for The November Man starring Pierce Brosnan and Olga Kurylenko which was "for strong violence including a sexual assault, language, sexuality/nudity and brief drug use", and go unrated... for now. I have to assume something will change before the August 29 release date. I have included the complete bulletin directly below. Adventure Planet Rated PG For thematic material, action and peril, and some language. Fort McCoy Rated R For some violence. The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug Extended Cut Rated PG-13 For extended sequences of intense fantasy action violence, and frightening images. Note: Edited Version. Content Is Different From PG-13 Rated Version, »

Monterey Media Picks Up Kate Connor and Eric Stoltz Drama 'Fort McCoy'

10 March 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After a success festival circuit run that included Boston, Cannes Independent, Rhode Island, Savannah and more, the U.S. and Canadian rights to "Fort McCoy" were acquired today by Monterey Media. Based on a true story, the film centers on a family living next to a Nazi Pow camp in Wisconsin during World War II. Writer and co-director Kate Connor stars as the central figure's wife, based on her real-life grandmother. The cast also includes Eric Stoltz ("Pulp Fiction"), Lyndsy Fonseca ("Kick-Ass"), Camryn Manheim ("Ghost Whisperer") and Wes Anderson favorite Seymour Cassel. "We are thrilled to be working with Monterey Media with their rich tradition of championing beautiful award-winning films" said Connor. "Not only is it a personal film involving the history of my family, but it is our collective history as Americans, so we can’t wait to bring this untold story to a wider American audience with Monterey. »
