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.

Who doesn’t love Keira Knightley? Especially when she’s in a love story of the ages now available on Blu-ray and DVD. I know, I know. But I am not all scifi and action films. Sometimes a good romance gets to me.
Synopsis: Academy Award® nominee Keira Knightley, Academy Award® nominee Jude Law and Aaron Taylor-Johnson dazzle in this stunning new vision of Leo Tolstoy’s epic love story. At the twilight of an empire, Anna Karenina (Knightley), the beautiful high-ranking wife of one of imperial Russia’s most esteemed men (Law), has it all. But when she meets the dashing cavalry officer Vronsky (Taylor-Johnson), there is a mutual spark of instant attraction that cannot be ignored. She’s immediately swept up in a passionate affair that will shock a nation and change the lives of everyone around her. From acclaimed director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) and Academy Award®-winning writer Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love) comes this visually enchanting masterpiece hailed by critics as “ecstatic” (Time), “rapturous” (MSN Movies) and “a spectacle that has to be seen to be believed!” (The Huffington Post)

Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company announced today the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD release of THE MASTER, the innovative film that has won over audiences and critics alike. Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood), the 1950s-set drama centers on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as “The Master” (Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Moneyball) who creates a belief system which catches on with other lost souls – and a young WW-II veteran (Joaquin Phoenix, Gladiator) who becomes his right-hand man. In addition to Hoffman and Phoenix, the film also stars Amy Adams (Doubt) and Laura Dern (Little Fockers). THE MASTER heads to retail on February 26, 2013 for an SRP of $39.99 for the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and $29.98 for the DVD.
Haunted by his past, WW-II veteran and drifter Freddie Quell crosses paths with a mysterious movement called The Cause, led by Lancaster Dodd aka “The Master” and his wife Peggy. Their twisted relationship is the core of this film that is “a glorious and haunting symphony of color, emotion and sound with camera movements that elicit an involuntary gasp and feats of acting that defy comprehension (A.O Scott, The New York Times).”
Joe Neumaier of The New York Daily News declared THE MASTER, “the season’s first Oscar contender.” THE MASTER received the following 2012 Academy Award® nominations – Joaquin Phoenix for Best Actor in a Leading Role, Philip Seymour Hoffman for Best Actor in a Supporting Role and Amy Adams for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. The film received three Golden Globes® Nominations including Best Actor in a Drama Joaquin Phoenix, Best Supporting Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman and Best Supporting Actress Amy Adams.
Awarded Best Actor for both Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix and Best Director for Paul Thomas Anderson at the 2012 Venice Film Festival, THE MASTER is a film “that casts a spell like a fever dream (David Ansen, Newsweek).”
Stunningly photographed in 65mm, THE MASTER stands as an undeniable cinematic experience. Will Freddie be able to outrun his past? Will The Cause help or hurt him? Can this tortured, violent creature be civilized? Or is man, after all, just a dirty animal?
THE MASTER Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD special features include: “Back Beyond” which features outtakes and additional scenes edited to music by Johnny Greenwood; “Unguided Message,” an 8 minute short / behind the scenes; Teasers/ Trailers. The Combo Pack also includes an additional special feature “Let Their Be Light (1946), John Huston’s landmark documentary about WW-II veterans.” Note: Special features are subject to change.
Synopsis: Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt’s growing ego. But lately the duo’s greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they’ve grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show looks stale. But there’s still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act—both onstage and off—if Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.
