Here’s the upcoming dvd release schedule for March 2009. This month were getting some great movies out on dvd. Three Spirit Award nominated films, and five Oscar nominated, including two for Best Picture! Here are the release dates:
The Wrestler and Frozen River were big winners today at the 2009 Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, California. The live show went down almost perfectly as Steve Coogan pulled off a fairly decent job as host. I haven’t seen Hamlet 2, but he certainly has theatrical talent. His opening monologue was uptight funny, very British, and slightly dry with a hint of fear…
The “Spirit Awards” are the Anti-Oscars, in that they honor Independent films and Independent film production. “The Independent Film Channel” and the “Spirit Awards” strive to promote Independent film production all over the world, and in the last 10 years have done a remarkable job supporting the Independent film industry.
Primer, was released in 2004 and was instantly nominated for three, IFC INDEPENDENT SPIRIT AWARDS. Best Film, Best Director (SHANE CARRUTH), and Best Debut Performance, (DAVID SULLIVAN).
