SUNDANCE SELECTS TO RE-RELEASE NANNI MORETTI’S WE HAVE A POPE (HABEMUS PAPAM)

Film Will Head to New York’s Lincoln Plaza and Have Major Digital Release

New York, NY (March 14, 2013) – Sundance Selects announced today that the company is going to re-release director Nanni Moretti’s (Palme d’Or winner THE SON’S ROOM, DEAR DIARY) comedic drama WE HAVE A POPE (HABEMUS PAPAM) beginning next Wednesday at New York’s Lincoln Plaza Cinemas, and nationally on multiple digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Xbox, GooglePlay, Sony Play Station and SundanceNOW. Moretti produced the film with Domenico Procacci (GOMORRAH, QUIET CHAOS) and co-wrote the film with Francesco Piccolo and Federica Pontremoli. He also stars in it alongside veteran actor Michel Piccoli (CONTEMPT, THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE) and Jerzy Stuhr. WE HAVE A POPE (HABEMUS PAPAM) had its premiere at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival in competition.

In WE HAVE A POPE (HABEMUS PAPAM), the newly elected Pope (Piccoli) suffers a panic attack just as he is due to appear on St Peter’s balcony to greet the faithful, who have been patiently awaiting the conclave’s decision. His advisors, unable to convince him he is the right man for the job, seek help from a renowned psychoanalyst and atheist (Moretti). But his fear of the responsibility suddenly thrust upon him is one that he must face on his own.

President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films Jonathan Sehring said, “Recent world events made it irresistible for us to bring back WE HAVE A POPE which mirrors what much of the discussion on the world stage has been over the last few weeks. We’re happy to remind people of Nanni Moretti’s incredible film.”

Sundance Selects is a sister division to IFC Films and IFC Midnight, and is owned and operated by AMC Networks, Inc.

Ever since the Star Trek Experience hit Las Vegas I wanted to go. Yet I never got there! The Trek experience is gone but my desire to go isn’t.

My desire has only been fueled by all my friends and family that have gone and come back telling me about all the cool things they have done there. Like seeing the Blue Man group (I have seen them on tour, but I hear they are so much better in Vegas).

So I missed my sci-fi adventure in Vegas but I could still have fun. What better place to see comedians like Penn & Teller than at a Las Vegas comedy show?

I just looked up some of the shows and looks like Ron White will be there soon. We just love him. He is absolutely one of the funniest guys I have ever seen. I would love to see him live.

Wow you can pretty much find anything you want to do at Vegas! I was poking around the VegasChill.com website and saw the Gregory Popovich’s Comedy Pet Theater will be at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. A pet theater sounds like fun to me. Wonder if Boris wants to run away and join the circus?

Time Travel AheadEvery day on my way to work I pass this sign (okay not exactly this sign since I photoshopped it — the real one says Travel Time Ahead). And in my dyslexic mind I ALWAYS read it as Time Travel Ahead (so I went ahead and made it say that since that is what I see in my mind’s eye anywho).

Just some random silliness.

Below you will find two signs I happened across. Both of which are missing commas therefore making the meaning of the sign slightly different than intended. Not quite as much fun as the Blog of Unnecessary Quotes, but almost. I am not quite sure what an alcohol dog is and I have never heard of a drying vacuum either…

Tomatoes AttackThis was one of those weird films that for some odd reason I really liked. But I never new there were so many sequels to it.

I have been scouring the web today looking for techno versions of the star trek theme. Unfortunately for me I already have all the good ones. Everything else can be found on youtube.com with a poorly slapped together video montage to go along with it and you can’t easily extract the audio out of these […]

Worst Week was the worst series premiere so far. I think it just might keep that title too. It was actually painful to watch. It was very predictable and not in the least bit funny. The characters weren’t the least bit interesting or compelling. At least CBS thought ahead and stuck this at the end […]

Actor, comedian and exasperated dad Mac dies at 50

Trekkin with Geeky Guys on Big Bang Theory

Tonight’s Big Bang Theory was hilarious, especially for all of us Star Trek geeks. The episode starts out with the guys sitting around talking about Spock’s conception and Vulcan mating rituals,  pon far, and a possible fertility clinic with Sarek going in with a copy of Pointy Ears and Shapely Rears [I think that was the […]

Mr. Bean’s tragic trek across France on his vacation is hilarious, but not that anyone could tell by the box office reception. After opening weekend the film Mr. Bean’s Holiday only came in fourth for the weekend’s box office totals. This is a rather poor showing for a funny man like Rowan Atkins. But then […]
