A lot of new reviews has come out now, I can't really keep track... So I went to Rotten Tomatoes, and it's got 93% so far. :wheee :hands

Just hoping some distributor here will wake up soon... :cafe

I guess it's time to start haunting the Philadelphia Film Festival to see if it will show there. I've been pretty lucky over the past few years - Fassbender and Cumberbatch seem to be favorites of the PFF (I'm not complaining!). Maybe Jason will slide into their offerings. (There's only been one movie that I hated at the PFF, which was the mystery Halloween movie, which was quite possibly the most boring horror movie in the universe.)

I just read on a Swedish movie site that NonStop Entertainment bought the distribution rights for the Nordic countries at TIFF. :wheee
It will premiere i Sweden in the spring, hopefully in Norway at the same time. (If not, it's just 1 hour drive to the closest Swedish city from where I live - I'll find a way...)

Pooh! The PFF has thwarted my plan! Not only is there no Jason, but there is also no Michael Fassbender film this year! They always have a Fassy film! Dang them! Dang them to Hades! *shakes fist at PFF* :shh

What's the point having a film festival without Jason Isaacs or Michael Fassbender? :roll:

This film was mentioned on the Scottish news today, as Armando Iannucci is a Scot - they showed a clip, but sadly sans Jason. It's definitely being released here later this month. :hands

Of course, I will be happy to pass on my opinion. The trailers look very funny, and the cast is excellent, so I am hoping for great things.
