Movie News

Some updated info on The Legend of Barney Thomson. No news yet on overseas release dates, though. Presumably there are some pencilled in for somewhere, but if I can just quote Hot Fuzz – as anyone who’s ever lived in Wells is more or less obligated to do on a daily basis – nobody tells me nuthin’.

[The most oft-quoted Hot Fuzz line in our house is a variation on ‘You ain’t seen Bad Boys II?’ and is applied to any film that someone hasn’t seen, regardless of how obscure. e.g. ‘You ain’t seen Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter?’]

I expect there are other places from which to order it too.

  • The movie got an unexpected release on Showcase cinemas around England in the last week. So, having fallen off the radar of weekly releases - it had been down to showing in just 5 independent cinemas – last week it played at 24 venues, takings increasing %1620. Weekend gross for 18-20 September was £34,643, bringing overall earnings for nine weeks of release to £711,775.
  • While not exactly an overseas release date, The Legend of Barney Thomson will be showing at Sitges Film Festival, near Barcelona, next month. Details here:

That's it on the movie news.
