Hick, Welcome To People & For A Good Time Call Get 2012 Release Dates

Get out your marker and dry erase board of upcoming movies, because you'll have to add a few more dates to the calendar.

First up, despite Vulture's suggestion that Disney was trying to offload the DreamWorks drama (they have a distribution arrangement), "Welcome To People," from tentpole writers and producers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman, it is now slated with a June 29th release date. The film stars Chris Pine, Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde, Jon Favreau, Mark Duplass and Michelle Pffeifer and tells the story a twenty-something business man who, after the death of his father, must deliver $150,000 in cash to the alcoholic sister he didn’t know he had, and her son, a 12-year-old with major anger management issues. So yeah, definitely counter-programming in the midst of the summer. No word yet on the exact release plans (limited or wide) but we presume this means a trailer and more is just around the corner.

Meanwhile, a couple films off the festival circuit are coming your way. Premiering at TIFF last year, "Hick" starring Blake Lively, Chloe Moretz and Eddie Redmayne will go UltraVOD on May 8th and into theaters on May 11th. Directed by Derick Martini (”Lymelife”), the film is an adaptation of Andrea Portes’ coming-of-age novel of the same name (she penned the script as well). The story revolves around Luli (Moretz), a 13-year-old Nebraskan girl and her hard-going life on the road after she runs away from her neglectful parents and home. She’s taken in by Glenda (Lively), a hard-living grifter who takes her under her wing.  We weren't so impressed by the film at the fest calling it "a black blot of shame for everyone who had a part in its making." Ouch.

Lastly, premiering at Sundance just last month, "For A Good Time, Call" will be ready for audiences when it rolls into theaters on September 14th in limited release, hitting Los Angeles and New York City first. Directed by Jamie Travis, the film was written by Katie Anne Naylon and Lauren Anne Miller, who also star alongside actress Ari Graynor in the feature about women short on cash and prospects who start a phone sex line. We didn't get a chance to catch it in Park City, but we look forward to seeing it soon.
