Two Buys

The question about IFC Film’s acquisition of Michael Winterbottom‘s The Killer Inside Me is whether they’ll trim down the beating scenes or run them raw.

And I think we all realize that Roadside Attractions will have its work cut out in selling Debra Granik‘s Winter’s Bone to Joe Popcorn. It’s a highly respectable drama with a strong lead performance by Jennifer Lawrence (who’s way too attractive to be a believable Ozark girl), but if I know anything about what the dumb-asses like to see…

    Sounds like there is a lot of call for “violence porn” these days. SAD. I’m betting it’ll be run raw with a hard R.

  2. Maybe they can pair it with Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, as a double feature. Showing her performance in that first might make the violence against in The Killer Inside Me easier to take.

  3. I’m sure the beating is brutal and all, but on a lighter note, the movie also appears to feature Alba in lingerie, barefoot and sporting a COWBOY HAT.

    For that reason alone, everyone is obligated to see it so you can see her every conceivable different pose and outfit if you’re a true fan.

    Alba Power.

  4. Isn’t the whole point of a Roadside-style venture that they don’t really rely on selling to Joe Popcorn as their model consumer? I don’t think GOODBYE SOLO and THE STONING OF SORAYA M. were necessarily intended to play big with Joe or any other member of his immediate family. Sure, WINTER’S BONE isn’t TRANSFORMERS 3, but when you’ve distributed a movie about, well, a friggin’ stoning, it seems like you’ve earned your indie stripes, yeah?

  5. I think that nice post. Nice information, valuable and excellent design, as share good stuff with good ideas and concepts, lots of great information and inspiration, both of which we all need, thanks for all the enthusiasm to offer such helpful information here.
