Teenagers can actually see the teen action comedy Barely Lethal in theaters, now that it’s overturned its original R rating.
On Thursday, the Classification and Rating Appeals Board changed the R rating given to the movie for sexual material and teen drinking. EW can confirm that the film now has a PG-13 rating for sexual material, teen drinking, language, drug references and some action violence.
Barely Lethal, which stars Hailee Steinfeld, Samuel L. Jackson and Jessica Alba, follows a 16-year-old trained assassin’s attempt to run away from her job and live a normal life by attending high school. Naturally, she finds it very difficult to fit in.
In February, DirecTV and A24 Film acquired the U.S. rights to the film and though no official date has been set, they are said to have planned an April release to both DirecTV and in select theaters.
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, the drama weepie that swept this year’s Sundance Film Festival, has a release date.
Fox Searchlight, which made its own drama acquiring the movie, will open the movie July 1 in a limited platform basis.
The drama stars Thomas Mann, who plays an awkward senior forced by his mother to spend time with a classmate he hasn’t talked to since kindergarten, a girl just diagnosed with cancer.Olivia Cooke stars as the girl.
The movie adapts the book by Jesse Andrews and is directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.
After its premiere at Sundance, The Hollywood Reporter’s review of the movie called it “a smart-ass charmer, merciless tearjerker and sincere celebration of teenage creativity.”
The movie went on to win Sundance’s U.S. dramatic grand jury prize and the U.S. dramatic audience award.
Pictures of Thomas attending Vanity Fair And Fiat Toast To ‘Young Hollywood’ on Febuary 17th have been added to the gallery.
I have added 3 different sets of portraits Thomas did while attending the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Check them out in the gallery below!
The tale of a loner who befriends a fellow high school student with leukemia has become the breakout hit of the Sundance Film Festival.
Fox Searchlight bought “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” after its well-received premiere Sunday for a reported $12 million, a record price for a Sundance movie.
The film stars Thomas Mann as the Greg Gaines — the “me” in the title, and British actress Olivia Cooke is the “dying girl,” while newcomer RJ Cyler is “Earl” — Gaines’ best friend. The audience at Sundance’s Eccles theatre gave the film a five-minute standing ovation as credits rolled.
“It was really emotional. We had seen the movie before but obviously it’s a really different experience seeing it with a huge group of people who have no idea what they’re about to see. And then the credits start rolling and everyone stands up and starts clapping. I mean, you start bawling. It’s overwhelming,” Mann said.
Cooke said she was sobbing.
“Molly Shannon was next to me and her stomach kind of crumpled and she was like, ‘huh huh,’ bawling her eyes out,” she said. “I couldn’t. I was a wreck. That was embarrassing.”
The film reportedly drew a bidding war from various potential distributors — likely mindful of the massive success of last summer’s “The Fault in our Stars,” a romance that similarly revolves around young people and cancer, which grossed nearly $325 million worldwide.
But the actors say there aren’t many similarities between that movie and theirs, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and written by Jesse Andrews, who adapted his own novel.
“‘Fault in our Stars’ wasn’t really a thing when we auditioned for it. When we started making the movie, that’s when there was all this hype around it. The movie, you really can’t compare them. I mean, they’ve got cancer in them. And I guess that’s one comparative,” Cooke said. “You wouldn’t compare ‘Titanic’ and ‘Battleship’ because they’ve both got ships.”
Mann, a 23-year-old in demand in Hollywood with several movies set for release this year, said “Earl” spoke to him like no other film.
“This has been the most personal project for me. I’ve really had to pour myself into this movie. No other script has asked as much of me as this movie has. And I don’t know that it ever will. I hope it will but yeah it’s going to be hard to beat a juicy role like this,” he said.
Fox Searchlight said it will release the film sometime this year.
Congrats to Thomas and the rest of the cast & crew of Me And Earl And The Dying Girl!
