Take This Waltz, is the follow up film for director/writer Sarah Polley (Dawn of the Dead), whose previous film, Away From Her, was released in 2006. Away From Her was a heartbreaking tale about a husband dealing with his wife, who is fighting Alzheimer disease, and its affect on their marriage. Well she seems to love the whole married couple dealing with an issue breaking apart their relationship. But in this case, it’s not a medical disease tearing them apart, it’s someone just wanting more.
Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine) plays Margot, a writer for tourist brochures. On assignment, she bumps into a young man, Daniel, played by Luke Kirby (Cra$h & Burn), and they keep bumping into each other on the way home. And to top it off, she finds out that he actually lives in same neighborhood, just a few houses down. And with that reveal, she also tells him that she is married, to Lou, played by Seth Rogen (50/50), who is also a writer, a cook book writer, who is currently into chicken.
A movie that has seen a some buzz recently with the release of a trailer and a festival cameo at Fantastic Fest, The Troll Hunter looks to become the next popular “found footage” film.
Todd Wagner and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban‘s Magnet Releasing, a division of Magnolia Pictures, has announced today that they have acquired the worldwide release rights (excluding Europe) to the film. The movie tells the story of a group of Norwegian film students who set off to document the existence of trolls, which as it turns out actually exist and have been covered up by the government. What they film is an incredible and massive species, inexplicably hidden for so many years…and they’re not so friendly towards others.
