“I don’t want to die in Canada”
TUSK will have its world premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival

From the singular mind of writer/director and podcaster Kevin Smith, and conceived from one of Smith’s own Smodcast’s, TUSK is a story unlike anything that has ever been committed to screen before. A tale that is equal parts hilarious and horrifying, TUSK will stay with you long after the credits roll.

Alan Partridge comes to American shores

After proving to be a massive hit in the UK and abroad, America is set to get the feature length tale of everyone's favourite odd ball, middle aged, local radio DJ from Norwich, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (uk title)
Magnolia Pictures will release ALAN PARTRIDGE on iTunes/OnDemand February 27th and in theaters April 4, 2014.
Watch the official trailer for ALAN PARTRIDGE, starring Steve Coogan, exclusively on Apple Trailers:

Directed by Declan Lowney 
Starring Steve Coogan, Felicity Montagu, Simon Greenall, Colm Meaney and Tim Key 

Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan) has had many ups and downs in his life. National television broadcaster. Responsible for killing a guest on live TV. Local radio broadcaster. A nervous breakdown in Dundee. His self-published book, 'Bouncing Back', subsequently remaindered and pulped. 
The movie, ALAN PARTRIDGE finds Alan at the center of a siege, when a disgruntled fellow DJ (Colm Meaney) decides to hold their station hostage after learning that he’s getting sacked by the new management. 

The character Alan Partridge first appeared over twenty years ago as a BBC sports reporter on the radio show, On The Hour. Since then, this wonderfully conceited, petty, anal, idiosyncratic comic creation has flourished across virtually every medium you can think of. He’s been a sports reporter (again) on the seminal TV news spoof, The Day Today, host of his own TV chat show, Knowing Me, Knowing You, star of the fly-on-the-wall sitcom I’m Alan Partridge, and most recently Mid-Morning Matters.

I can tell you, as I have seen the film that it's very funny and well worth a look when it's released.

The Right Kind Of Wrong Trailer and Details

Magnolia Pictures will release THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG on iTunes/OnDemand February 6, 2014 and in theaters March 14, 2014. 

Directed by Jeremiah Chechik
Starring Ryan Kwanten, Sara Canning, Will Sasso and Catherine O'Hara

Leo Palamino has dedicated his life to what some may call impossible dreams. At least his ex-wife Julie would call them that. But Leo is an expert at not listening to her criticism or anyone else’s for that matter because Leo is a stubborn romantic... An idealist. A dreamer. And to dream big, impossible dreams you can’t listen to the people who tell you that’s what those dreams are.

It is precisely this refusal to listen to criticism that drove his ex-wife Julie to blog about Leo’s flaws as their relationship broke down. A blog... called Why You Suck that would become a cultural phenomenon. And so when we meet Leo Palamino, he is a romantic dreamer, a dedicated writer, a dishwasher in a tourist trap, and a celebrity...

A man famous for his flaws.

Then one afternoon, as the very dejected Leo watches Julie being interviewed on a talk show about her upcoming book, he lays eyes on the woman of his (impossible) dreams... COLETTE is on her way into a wedding across the street from Leo’s house.

Her wedding.
