His Next Film: Dark Horse

A column in today's Variety makes reference of a new Todd Solondz film, just getting underway. The piece by Peter Caranicas points out that costume designers known as Kurt & Bart are booked to work on Todd Solondz's Dark Horse.

But there's a lot better info on the film to be found in this brief interview with Solondz on a blog called The Playlist. Apparently, we can expect this film to be much less controversial than his past efforts.

The Wartime Wait Is Over!

Life During Wartime is now available on DVD from Artificial Eye in the UK/ Region 2. Go ahead and order it - I did! Meanwhile, in the US, it's debuting in NY theaters next week, on July 23rd. With IFC's On Demand thing, I think that also means you'll be able to watch it online at ifcfilms.com on that date.

And, as you may've noticed on the front page, our Life During Wartime page is now live, too! Be sure to check out the still gallery, too. Plenty of great screenshots, the official plot description and even the lyrics to the song "Life During Wartime" as written by Todd Solondz (not to be confused by the Talking Heads or Greenday songs of the same title) and personally transcribed by me. :)

Life Posters and Trailer

An article on AwardsDaily has stumbled upon some nice finds. First up is the Life During Wartime poster. In fact, two posters. It's the same image, but interestingly, the English poster gives the boy a different color flower in his hand and smoother shorts. Life During Photoshop, I suppose.

Secondly, the trailer (yay!) has been posted on Youtube, courtesy of Artifical Eye LDT's UK distributor. Here's a direct link. Enjoy!

Summer is Wartime!

Life During Wartime is scheduled to be released theatrically in the US this summer. According to an article at indiewire.com, IFC have acquired the rights to screen the film via their IFC in Theaters platform, which simultaneously releases movies in theaters and on VOD. There's no mention in this article or others on the same story of whether a DVD release is planned yet, so I'm guessing not.

The president of IFC Entertainment, Jonathan Sehring, is quoted as saying, “we are so thrilled to be releasing this darkly funny and bittersweet film, which we consider amongst his best work. We think it's perfect for all our platforms.” And Solondz added, “The people at IFC Films are the swellest! This is going to be fun!”
