Variance Films has acquired U.S. theatrical rights to The Trouble With Bliss, the Michael Knowles-directed film that stars Michael C. Hall, Brie Larson, Peter Fonda, Lucy Liu, Brad William Henke, Sarah Shahi, and Chris Messina. The film will get a theatrical release on March 23, 2012, per Variance founder Dylan Marchetti. Hall plays 35-year-old Morris Bliss, who is clamped firmly in the jaws of New York City inertia. He wants to travel but has no money; he needs a job but has no prospects; and he still shares an apartment with his widowed father (Fonda), who treats Morris with a mix of disdain and exasperation. When he finds himself juggling a bizarre relationship with the sexually precocious 18-year-old daughter (Larson) of a former classmate and the advances of his very forward neighbor (Liu), Morris realizes that even though his life is unraveling, it’s also opening up in ways that are long overdue. »

With Kung Fu Panda 2 opening this weekend, I recently got to interview Lucy Liu for our partners at Omelete. While some sequels spend a lot of time reminding the audience who the characters are, one of the many things that’s great about Kung Fu Panda 2 is that it starts like you know the world and it never slows down. In addition, while I’ve been very vocal about bad 3D, Kung Fu Panda 2 features some incredible 3D and the best part is the filmmakers used 3D to help tell the story. If you have the option, you really want to see this in 3D. During my interview with Liu, we talked about making the sequel and her thoughts on the success of the first film. In addition, with Liu working on so many other projects, I got updates on director RZA's The Man With the »

1. The Son of No One: Grade B
Channing Tatum has a mustache. I’m not sure if this is a comedy or not. The poster itself is actually pretty good though, in a bit of a minimalist way.
2. Kaboom: Grade B+
I have a hard time believing there is a more befitting poster for this film. It is a great blast of colors and images, albeit the images seem a little redundant and superfluous, but the over-the-top nature of the poster is great.
3. East Fifth Bliss: Grade B
The best part about this poster is the details surrounding Michael C. Hall. Without knowing anything about this upcoming film, it would seem as though Hall’s character is in his childhood bedroom, possibly entertaining a fantasy, or an actual woman.
4. Never Let Me Go: Grade C
This poster has a similar look, in terms of the dreamy color and »

Synopsis: A comedy/drama about 35-year-old Morris Bliss, who is clamped in the jaws of New York City inertia: he wants to travel but has no money; he needs a job but has no prospects; he still shares an apartment with his widowed father; and perhaps worst of all the premature death of his mother still lingers and has left him emotionally walled up. When he finds himself [...] »
