Lost River gets a limited theater release

Hey GosAdd,
this seems to be the never-ending story.

Yesterday Variety claims Lost River will get only a home video release in  April. But it was a false news!

Among others,  the  Los Angeles Times tells us WB has confirmed  the movie will have a small theatrical release (just in Los Angeles and New York) the same day the home  video will be released in the second quarter of 2015. So we have not a date at the moment.

Here below you can read the article:

After Ryan Gosling's directorial debut "Lost River" landed with a thud at the Cannes Film Festival, fans began wondering when they'd get the chance to judge the film for themselves.

We now have that answer — but it may not be one that pleases the actor's devotees.

Warner Bros., which acquired rights to "Lost River" in 2013, said Tuesday that it planned to release the movie through its home video arm, though it will also get an exclusive theatrical run in Los Angeles and New York. While producer Marc Platt said in an interview this week that the movie would roll out in April, Warner Bros. says it has yet to date the film.

Dan Fellman, the studio's president of domestic distribution, acknowledged Tuesday that the release pattern was unusual for Warner Bros., which rarely puts its movies on-demand and in theaters on the same day. But Gosling was apparently on board with the plan.

"I think it's a specialized film. It's really something that needed special handling — which the filmmakers were well aware of," Fellman said in an interview with The Times. "It was their decision, really, on how to proceed with the release of the movie. It was not a surprise to anybody."

Gosling's representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Fellman denied that the movie was ever slated to play nationwide and said the picture's release plan was not indicative of poor quality.

"I think Ryan did a really good job with the film," Fellman said, before going on to clarify that the studio did not produce the movie or put much money into it.

It makes sense, of course, that Warner Bros. would want to stay in Gosling's good graces. As an actor, he's done good business for the studio — mostly in "Crazy, Stupid, Love," less so in "Gangster Squad." Plus, he's currently at work filming the 1970s neo-noir "The Nice Guys" for it with Russell Crowe.

I do hope this is the last word. The movie will be released in limited theaters - like I'm saying since weeks.
Of course, as I'm living in Italy where there is no trace at all of the movie, I will wait for my blu ray copy from the UK (when available, I guess about June).

Stay Gos
