  THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE  

THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE  Release PosterThe movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We’re the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.

  NEIGHBORS 2: SORORITY RISING

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising Release PosterNow that Mac (Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Byrne) have a second baby on the way, they are ready to make the final move into adulthood: the suburbs. But just as they thought they’d reclaimed the neighborhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a sorority even more out of control than Teddy (Efron) and his brothers ever dreamed of being.

Tired of their school’s sexist, restrictive system, the unorthodox ladies of Kappa Nu have decided to start a house where they can do whatever the hell they want. When Shelby (Moretz) and her sisters, Beth (Kiersey Clemons) and Nora (Beanie Feldstein), find the perfect place just off campus, they won’t let the fact that it’s located on a quiet street stand in their way of parties as epic as the guys throw.

Forced to turn to the one ex-neighbor with the skills to bring down the new Greeks next door, the Radners—alongside best friends Jimmy (Ike Barinholtz) and Paula (Carla Gallo)—bring in charismatic Teddy as their secret weapon. If he can infiltrate the sorority and charm his way through it, the thirtysomethings will shutter the Kappas’ home. But if they think that their neighbors are going down without a fight, they have severely underestimated the power of youthful ingenuity and straight-up crazy.

  THE NICE GUYS

  MAGGIE’S PLAN 

MAGGIE’S PLAN Release PosterIn Rebecca Miller’s witty, modern romantic comedy MAGGIE’S PLAN, Greta Gerwig portrays Maggie Hardin, a vibrant and practical thirty-something New Yorker working at the New School who, without success in finding love, decides now is the time to have a child on her own. But when she meets John Harding (Ethan Hawke), a “ficto-critical anthropologist” and struggling novelist, Maggie falls in love for the first time, and adjusts her plans for motherhood. Complicating matters, John is in a strained marriage with Georgette Nørgaard (Julianne Moore), a brilliant Danish academic. With a Greek chorus of Maggie’s eccentric and hilarious best friends Tony and Felicia (played by Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph) observing wryly from the sidelines, Maggie sets into motion a new plan that catapults her into a nervy love triangle with John and Georgette; intertwining their lives and connecting them in surprising and the humorous new ways. Maggie learns that sometimes destiny should be left to its own devices. MAGGIE’S PLAN is a sweet, sophisticated and funny exploration of the unexpected complexities of modern romance, mixing heart and humor in a story of the delightful variability of relationships over the course of time.

DOG EAT DOG Makes World Premiere & Takes a Bite out of Cannes Tonight

May 20th, 2016

Arclight Films and Pure Dopamine are pleased to announce the Cannes world premiere of gritty crime-thriller, DOG EAT DOG, based on the award-winning book of the same name by celebrated author Eddie Bunker on May 20, 2016. The film stars Nicolas Cage, Willem Dafoe (SPIDERMAN trilogy, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL) and was directed by two-time Golden Globe and Palme d’Or nominee and WGA Laurel Award-winner Paul Schrader (RAGING BULL, TAXI DRIVER, AFFLICTED). DOG EAT DOG is the official closing film of this year’s Directors’ Fortnight (Quinzaine des Realisateurs).
Writers are Matt Wilder and Paul Schrader.
“It’s been an honor to work with such exceptional talent both in front of and behind the camera.” Said producer Mark Earl Burman. “We’re excited to have been invited to screen DOG EAT DOG to audiences for the very first time in Cannes and look forward to sharing the film with the rest of the world shortly thereafter.”

“We’re thrilled that DOG EAT DOG has been selected as the closing night film for Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes.” Said Gary Hamilton, Managing Director of Arclight Films and a producer on the project. “We can’t imagine a better or more prestigious platform for the world premiere of such an exhilarating, exceptional and powerful film, featuring a world-renowned cast lead by Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe, and directed by a legend in his own right, Paul Schraeder.”

DOG EAT DOG is a gritty contemporary crime thriller about a trio of ex-cons, deep in the underbelly of Cleveland, who are hired for a kidnapping. When the botched abduction goes awry and gets completely out of control, the cons find themselves on the run, vowing to stay out of prison at all costs.

“To be back in Cannes, and with DOG EAT DOG, is somewhat of a dream come true.” Said Schrader. “Nick Cage and I have been planning a collaboration for quite some time, yet we were waiting for the right script to come through, which turned out to be DOG EAT DOG. It was beyond a pleasure to work with both he and Willem and so many talented others on a film that has commercially viability as well as artistic integrity all in one, gritty, cinematic package. DOG EAT DOG brings an certain kind of edginess back into the world of film that has been missing in action for quite some time.”

Producers are Mark Earl Burman of Pure Dopamine, Gary Hamilton, and Brian Beckmann. Executive producers include Academy-award winner Barney Burman, Jeff Caperton, David Hillary, Ray Mansfield, Michael McClung, Timothy Wayne Peternel, Donald Rivers, Shaun Redick and Jeremy Rosen.

Other cast members include Melissa Bolona, Christopher Matthew Cook and Louisa Krause.

Burman’s hit documentary, SOUTH BUREAU HOMICIDE is currently making the festival circuit as well, to rave reviews.

Arclight Films is handling international sales.
