We missed this before but we wanted to share this cute instagram MTV reporter Josh Horowitz shared on his official instagram for his Happy/Sad/Confused series.
THR is reporting that “The Voices“, which premiered at Sundance and also screened at TIFF, found a distributor for the UK.
U.K. and Irish audiences will get to sample Ryan Reynolds’ brush with dark, schizophrenic satire, as distributor Arrow Films has secured the rights to black comedy The Voices.
Financial details weren’t disclosed.
Directed by Marjane Satrapi, the Iranian author and filmmaker behind animation film Persepolis, The Voices stars Reynolds as a troubled, med-addicted factory worker driven to murder by his talking pets, a psychopathic cat called Mr. Whiskers and Bosco, his peace-loving dog. Reynolds also voices both of the animals, while Jacki Weaver, Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick play the women unfortunate enough to cross his path.
The film, which was written by Michael R. Perry and sat on the Black List, premiered in Sundance in January and recently screened in Toronto. It was shot in Germany and produced by 1984 Private Defense Contractors, Mandalay Vision, Studio Babelsberg and Vertigo Entertainment.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter when the film screened at Sundance London in April, Satrapi described Reynolds as a Ferrari who so far had been used in films as if it was a Peugeot. “There’s so much more there than they show of him. He can do anything, but I didn’t know he was this talented, because I know him like everybody else,” she said.
Arrow Films hasn’t confirmed a release date but told THR it would have to wait until the U.S. release set for Valentine’s Day 2015. “But maybe slightly after, as 50 Shades opens on that date,” the company said.
Lionsgate has the U.S. rights for The Voices, while Remstar acquired the film for Canada.

“Cake” premiered earlier this week during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and the first reviews are coming in. We will round-up the reviews in this post and add more when more reviews are released.
“Returning to the independent realm for the first time since 2008’s “Phoebe in Wonderland” (he’s since collected Hollywood paychecks on “Beastly” and “Won’t Back Down”), Barnz brings a nicely polished touch to a production with a subtler, more authentic sense of L.A. atmosphere than most. Amid the supporting cast […] while Kendrick is somewhat underused in the ghostly daydream sequences, though she does get to deliver the anecdote that touchingly explains the movie’s title.”

“The Last 5 Years” premiered last night during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and the first reviews are getting released. While some reviews recognize some flaws in the movie they all praise Anna and Jeremy Jordan’s performance. We will round-up the reviews in this post and add more when more reviews are released.
“After watching “The Last Five Years” tonight, I am pleased to report that the film is brilliantly produced and directed. I initially had my doubts about Anna Kendrick taking on the role of Cathy. She proved she had singing chops in the film “Pitch Perfect,” but I was concerned she may not be able to give Jason Robert Brown’s complex score the treatment it deserves. Not only does Kendrick perform the score with great success from a vocal standpoint, she proves herself to be an impeccable actress capable of making you laugh in one moment and breaking your heart seconds later. Kendrick’s performance comes across as if the material had been specifically written as a vehicle for her. Jordan and Kendrick have incredible (and believable) chemistry together.”
