- After Dark Films bought the worldwide distribution rights to the teen-crime film Weapons for an estimated price of slightly over $1 million. After Dark will likely distribute the film theatrically through Lionsgate, with which it has a partnership, and plans to release the film late this year. Weapons is written and directed by Adam Bhala Lough, and is about a group of angry, violent youths. Scott Weinberg has described this film as "bleak and listless" -- look for his review on Cinematical later this week.
- Summit Entertainment acquired the worldwide rights (except Ireland) for the Irish musical Once for an undisclosed amount. The low-budget film was written and directed by John Carney. James Rocchi found the movie charming, and called it "a true pleasure that only the rankest cynic couldn't enjoy." Somehow I think I'd prefer this movie to Weapons, but obviously I'm not the target demographic for that film.
