Apparition's Bob Berney is adding another movie to his burgeoning release slate, which kicks off September 18 with Jane Campion's Toronto-bound period romance, Bright Star. The latest release is Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, set to open October 30, marking yet another distribution deal with Sony Worldwide Acquisitons Group, which also pacted with Apparition to release Black Dynamite. Other releases include Toronto closing nighter The Young Victoria and Terrence Malick’s The Tree Of Life, starring Sean Penn and Brad Pitt.

This Boondocks installment is a continuation of writer/director Troy Duffy’s 2000 tale of the vigilante MacManus brothers (Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery). The first movie was a DVD hit. This time the brothers come out of hiding to avenge a beloved priest who was hit by the Mob. Clifton Collins and Julie Benz join the ensemble. Berney cited a favorable response to the filmmakers and cast at Comic-Con. "They've delivered a solid follow up with lots of surprises for the fans," he said. SPWAG will handle domestic ancillary rights and all international rights.

Here's the trailer:

    This movie looks fairly dumb. I thought that Apparition was going to release strictly artful (right?) films.

    Picturehouse did release "Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights - From Hollywood to the Heartland" and that was a bit embarrassing, if only for the long title, but at least it made money.

    No, it didn't. It grossed less than $500,000.

    I think it's more important not to tarnish the Apparition name, before it even has one, than to make a quick buck.
