    Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    New picture out of New Zealand is apparently doing well there and on the festival circuit.

    "In a great sign of confidence for its upcoming summer release here in the U.S., Taika Waititi's comedy-adventure "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" has broken box office records over its opening weekend in New Zealand. According to a report from the New Zealand Herald, "Wilderpeople" set a new opening weekend record with $1.3 million, robustly beating the second weekend of blockbuster "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," which earned $741,000. More than half a million of the movie's opening weekend gross was made on Saturday – now the highest grossing day for a New Zealand film ever – and the newspaper estimates that 100,000 people have seen the movie in its first four days in cinemas."

    More here.


    Trailer!

    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Maybe not of interest to anyone outside of NYC but this is playing as part of the annual Rooftop Films Festival this year.

    Amazon has an Oct. listing for this, though it notes that it's RB.

    According to a post here:

    "The AU/NZ Madman release will have the following extras: Audio Commentary by Taika Waititi and Sam Neill; Making of Hunt for the Wilderpeople; Behind the Scenes; Interviews and Bloopers. The US release will probably have the same extras, but no confirmation as of this date."

    Looks like the US release of this will be BD-R but the Madman release will be region free.

    There's a very cheap UK Blu Ray release out on Monday

    Probably region locked but I can test it when I get it.
    I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

    I have relatives in New Zealand so it's funny to hear people in films talk like them. Going to check this out on Netflix.

    Watched this last night. I wasn't blown away by it, but it's amusing enough. I was expecting more laughs.
