Movies not com­ing to a theatre near you

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The Os­car-win­ning, Al Gore­fronted An In­con­ve­nient Truth played for months at the Screen in Dublin, but the eco-themed doc­u­men­tary The 11th Hour has been con­signed di­rectly to DVD in Ire­land, even though it’s pre­sented and pro­duced by Leonardo DiCaprio, whose movie fan base is sub­stan­tially larger than Gore’s.

The Good Night, star­ring Os­car win­ner Gwyneth Pal­trow, is des­tined for the same fate, as is But­ter­fly on a Wheel, a kid­nap­ping thriller star­ring Pierce Bros­nan, Maria Bello and Ger­ard But­ler.

Jane Fonda stars with Felicity Huff­man and Lind­say Lo­han in Ge­or­gia Rule, but it’s go­ing straight to DVD here, as are two other Lo­han movies: Chap­ter 27, star­ring Jared Leto as John Len­non’s as­sas­sin Mark Chap­man, and the crit­i­cally re­viled I Know Who Killed Me.

Re­cent UK re­leases by­passed for Ir­ish cine­mas in­clude Scott Frank’s well­re­garded thriller The Lookout, with Joseph Gor­don-Le­vitt and Matthew Goode; Barry Levin­son’s po­lit­i­cal satire Man of the Year, star­ring Robin Wil­liams, Christo­pher Walken and Laura Lin­ney; Fade to Black, fea­tur­ing Danny Hus­ton as Or­son Welles; He Was a Quiet Man, with Chris­tian Slater and Elisha Cuth­bert; and Chro­mo­pho­bia, di­rected by Martha Fi­ennes and fea­tur­ing her brother Ralph with Pene­lope Cruz, Ben Chap­lin and Kristin Scott Thomas.

And we have been spared Paris Hil­ton in The Hot­tie and the Not­tie.
