this morning I woke up on a .. bad news! Yes, bad news.
In an interview with Collider for his new "Into The Woods", Marc Platt (producer for Drive and Lost River) was asked about Ryan's movie
But few moments later Variety reports another scoop:
Few weeks ago I had an email by Sierra Affinity and I was assured the movie would have been out in the US Theaters and that the trailer would have been released soon.
Now I don't know.. I mean.... I'm starting thinking there is something wrong in the story.
There are tons of ridicolous and horrible movies that arrive in theaters so why not Lost River? The movie could have been released in few limited theaters across the US but why released it just as Home Video?
I think there are some marketing plans Ryan refused, dont' forget the movie is distributed by WB in the US. If not I can't explain why his first movie is so ignored. I can understand the critics but not this!
Only God Forgives was destroyed by the US Press but it had a premiere in NYC; it was booed by the Cannes audience but it won the Sydney Film Festival. It was released in theaters across the world. It was a hard movie and divided audience. Love it or hate it. But it was not ignored!
So far Lost River has few confirmed date (check here the list). In France the movie was set to be out on 18th Feb but then postponed to 22 April because they want Ryan to be there for the premiere.
For us poor Italian fans, there is no hope we can see the movie. The movie is not in the line up for 2015.
The movie will be out in the UK on 24 April and - thank God - every single movie is then released in dvd and blu ray after a couple of months. I will buy there my copy.
I'm tired of this! A movie like "The Interview" had tons of free promo and in the end is a sad and useless thing.
A movie like "50 shades" is a pure commercial movie but it has tons of promo.
Still, Hunger Games part 3 was a big delusion. But Jennifer Lawrence is in.
So who cares about the quality now? A big name for a big movie that's all the matter in Hollywood! You are mostly appreciate not for your qualities but for how much you can "give" of yourself.
I will do my best from now on to AVOID those big movies, unless Ryan is in!
I don't accept this decision. I'm really disgusted! We have the right to see Ryan's movie even if it is the worst thing we would ever see in our life.
