How much do you love me for this news? :)

From How To Be Newsletter:

We're excited to announce the much-anticipated U.S. release of How To Be! The film has been picked up for distribution by IFC Films and will premiere on IFC Festival Direct in April. To coincide with IFC's spring release, the How To Be soundtrack will be available on iTunes and on CD through Dreamboat Records. Full details of the release to come soon, and if you're not in the U.S. or Italy then rest assured that we are hard at work setting up distribution elsewhere!

Leading up to the release, How To Be is going on a U.S. tour! Oliver Irving (Writer/Director), Joe Hastings (Composer), Mike Pearce (Nikki), and Johnny White (Ronny) will be bringing the film to select cities, hitting states along the East coast from Florida to Massachusetts.

Ellie said...

I am so pyched for this movie! The character of Art seems so adorkable. And Rob is such a chameleon when acting.

I am so excited it is coming to Florida :) It hasn't been confirmed as of a date yet but they did mention Florida in the original post. I have wanted to see How to Be for months and I will be able to soon!

luckygyrl said...

WooHoo finally. What a great birthday gift!!!!! I mean, its not Rob in my bed, but I'll guess it'll do. LOL

Good Morning All!!!

Bootstrap Intern said...

I already have my ticket for 2/28 in San Jose. I can't wait!!

Kate said...

Now I wish I lived in America. They seriously better bring this to DVD FAST!!!!!! ;-)

luckygyrl said...

Im sure they'll have your way soon. Im not sure where ya live, but it looks like distribution is picking up pretty fast. Its like you cant find the "Bad Mothers Handbook" movie in the US. I'll just have to suffer....

Jae Lu said...

OME, the CIMMfest site is now UPDATED to get tix for the Mar 8 showing! Got 'em!

Emily said...

So jealous of all of you that get to see this! No such luck for me. I guess I'll just have to settle for watching the trailer over and over and staring at Rob laying on the floor in his tight blue pants. He fills out those pants nicely.

Emily said...

Okay, I was just catching up on the rest of the posts and I have to say, Rob at the Oscars would be awesome to see. Any way he could recycle those tight black pants from the LA premiere? Although it does mean that he'd have to come back to LA soon which, let's be honest, he's probably not thrilled about. But he would do an amazing job.
My only wish is that if it's true that he is presenting, I hope it's not with Kristen, although it probably will be. The reason I say that is to me, Kristen is an incredibly talented actress but painful to watch during appearances. She's uncomfortable and always looks pissed or like she's about to throw up. And with the stupid dialogue they would have to read off the teleprompter, it would be too much for me. Even though Rob doesn't love the spotlight either, he smiles and is charming and makes it enjoyable. Anyway, just my opinion.

Did anyone notice how short Robador Dali's pants were in the clip 3 posts down?

And Awkward Art in his tight blue pants - also too short. Flood much?

Those lovely long legs make for a wardrobe challenge apparently.

Emily said...

LOL AJ! Maybe he prefers them that way. Afterall, his own personal wardrobe hasn't changed since middle school. Gotta let the ankles breathe.

Anonymous said...

Good point Emily. His ankles are his best feature after all!

Emily said...

I love me some ankle porn. I still say he doesn't wear socks unless he has to. Too much hassle.

Tess said...

Oh this is such great news for HTB & all the people in the US (et all) who have been waiting to see it, but such bad news for me.........

The Singapore Film Festival is in April. I know they applied, but it hasn't been accepted??


Kate said...

The Jameson FIlm festival ends here on Sunday and neither LA or HTB are in it BUT there is a surprise film on Sunday they do it every year and it's always sold out. If it turns out to be one of these you will hear me screaming sll the way over there!!! LOL

I loooovee that part in front of the mirror!! If anyone has a gif of that pleasee give it to me :)
I'm soo happy that its coming in LA!! I'm sooo going to try and watch it! :D

Wilmari said...
