One of the better offerings that we took in at this year's AFM was a psycho little flick called Good Neighbours. We knew it wasn't going to be long before it scored distro, and lo and behold it has!
According to The Hollywood Reporter Magnolia Films has acquired all U.S. rights to Jacob Tierney's thriller Good Neighbours (mini-review here) from Myriad Pictures.
The movie stars Jay Baruchel, Scott Speedman and Emily Hampshire in the tale of three residents of a small apartment building who are threatened by a serial killer. Look for more soon!

Louise (Emily Hampshire) is a reclusive girl who identifies more with cats than people. Spencer (Scott Speedman) is a wheelchair-bound widower. Victor (Jay Baruchel) is a friendly but socially awkward neurotic. These three people live in an apartment building in a small Montreal neighborhood where a serial killer/rapist is on the loose. As they grow increasingly paranoid, the three strike up very unusual friendships that will take them down some very dark and bizarre paths.

It was an unfortunate turn of events when Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming film, 'The Master,' was "postponed indefinitely." We were losing our chance to see Phillip Seymour Hoffman as a man who makes his own faith-based organization, and turns a drifter (Jeremy Renner) into his "lieutenant." However, though the world of creative modern religion remains outside our cinematic grasp, Anderson might just have found a worthy substitute in the satirical, postmodern framework of Thomas Pynchon.

twenty seven ninety five? Really? That used to be like... three weeks of groceries, man...Collapse )
Oh my God, yes please.

She's dated everyone from Johnny Depp to Matt Damon and, most recently, Rilo Kiley guitarist Blake Sennett.

As she approaches her 40th birthday next year, Winona Ryder says she is finally ready to settle down. In a USA Today interview, the iconic 90s actress - who returns to the big screen this month with a supporting role in the thriller Black Swan - says during her non-working time she lives in San Francisco, where she hangs with other artists.
"There's a lot of cute writers up there," she says. "I gotta bag me a husband!"

Though she has been MIA for the last decade since she was arrested for shoplifting $4,760 worth of goods at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills, she has a few buzzed-about upcoming projects -- including The Dilemma (out Jan. 14), costarring Vince Vaughn.

"After these movies, which were a real gift to me, work breeds work," she tells the paper. "There were a few years where the only thing I was getting offered was [slasher movies]. I wasn't offered Saw, but those kinds [of movies], or really stupid comedies."
Adds the two-time Oscar nominee, "Right now, I'm trying to be kind of choosy. There's a few things on the horizon."


Here's to hoping Dilemma was just to pay those bills then, Noni. I know of a certain person who would be ultra down to simply pleasure you.

The ‘Iron Man’ star – who tied the knot with second wife Susan Levin in 2005 – admits his current relationship works much better than any of his previous romances and so he is happy to make an effort with their union.

He said: “Do we have to work at the relationship? More than I thought. And usually more than I would care to.

“But ultimately, it’s nice to have pure communication with, for me, a woman. Historically this is not something that, for me, was not really achievable.”

The 45-year-old star admits Susan’s outlook on life gave him a more stable relationship than he had with first wife Deborah Falconer, the mother of his 17-year-old son Indio.

He added to Britain’s GQ magazine: “Susan is cut from a slightly different cloth from Deb and I, and she’s provided a great new framework for lots of things.

“Susan doesn’t care if this building fell down and we never did another movie again so long as we were happy and loving and together, but so long as it hasn’t, she’s operating on the fact there’s a lot of s**t to get done.

“She is a master at it – I wouldn’t be surprised if she built the pyramids.”

Jay Baruchel

Jay’s got that sort of nebbishy James Dean thing down pat. He also has a kind of long French looking face that many women including myself have been known to enjoy.

Robert Downey Jr. has made the comeback of the decade with huge success in such films as “Iron Man 2”, “Sherlock Holmes” and most recently “Due Date”.

While on the tour circuit for his new flick, “Due Date”, the 45-year-old actor spoke about his Irish roots.

“I have Irish blood coursing through my veins. Every time I work in the UK, I’m always planning on a long weekend over there but it never works out,” he told the Sunday World magazine.

In his latest flick Downey plays businessman Peter Highman, a father-to-be who attempts to make a dash to L.A. To be by his wife's side for the birth of their first child.

Peter's plans run into trouble when he is forced to travel alongside wannabe actor Ethan Tremblay (Hangover star, Zach Galifianakis) in what becomes an unforgettable road trip.

“Peter is like us, men and women who have real jobs, real anxiety and a real need to perform in society,” Downey explains.

“He runs into Ethan, this person who is really sweet and a complete gentleman but who cannot help pushing his buttons.

“I grew up watching these road trip movies, so the script really brought me back...I had a blast shooting with Zach”

Due Date is on general release now.
