The 2017 Sundance Film Festival came and went last month, and some of the /Film crew was up in the mountains to see the latest offerings in independent cinema. Our favorite movie from the festival ended up being The Big Sick, the remarkably true and touching story of how comedian Kumail Nanjiani and producer Emily V. Gordon met and fell in love. The film was picked up by Amazon for distribution in a major $12 million deal, and now The Big Sick release date has finally been set for this summer. Read More »

Briefly: Three new actors have been added to the cast of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel, tentatively titled Batman vs. Superman. They are Oscar winner Holly Hunter, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 300: Rise of an Empire player Callan Mulvey and Tao Okamoto, Logan’s love interest in The Wolverine.

In Paradise, Julianne Hough stars as a young woman who renounces her faith after a plane crash leaves her scarred. She travels to Las Vegas to indulge in all the behaviors that sh has avoided in life, and runs across characters played by Russell Brand, Octavia Spencer and Nick Offerman. The film is written by Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult), who also makes her directorial debut.
Some of the weirdest news of last week was that Paradise would debut this week (on Thurs, Aug 8) on DirecTV. The plan has been in the works for a while, says the LA Times, to which Cody said, “I don’t know a director who is in on the distribution strategy, or if it’s necessarily ever OKd with the filmmaker. But they believe in my movie, and I’m excited to be trying something a little different. I think VOD is a pretty good place for an indie rom-com right now.”
So Paradise is an unexpected trailblazer for a certain sort of distribution, and you can bet that if it turns out well for the film and DirecTV we’ll see more releases like this in the future. For the time being, you can see the first trailer below. Read More »
