FIRST LOOK FROM CANNES : "CUTE LITTLE BUGGERS"



Tony Jopia’s highly anticipated comedy-horror hybrid Cute Little Buggers has found a home with Uncork’d Entertainment and High Octane Pictures, respectively. Uncork’d has acquired rights to the film in U.S and Canada, while High Octane has the rest of the world.

Described as Gremlins meets Hot Fuzz, the film sees hostile aliens crash-land on local farmland where they proceed to snatch young women from the local ball. It is up to the villagers, and a visiting hero named Melchoir, to fend off the invaders and bring peace back to the sleepy English countryside.
Uncork’d President Keith Leopard is pleased to be back in business with director Jopia having previously distributed the filmmaker’s well-received 2015 film, Crying Wolf.

“Tony knows how to give audiences a good time – and his latest is no exception. Cute Little Buggers will spook you – there’s moments in this that will make the goosebumps rise and then some - but it will also give audiences belly laugh after belly laugh! At its core it’s a real throwback to the golden-age creature features.”

Galen Christy, founder of High Octane Pictures, is equally excited about the film.

“Not many films can immediately hook you from the first frame… but this sure does! Cute Little Buggers is infused with an infectious energy, some high-spirited performances, and a unique premise - I defy anyone not to really enjoy it!”

Featuring genre icon Caroline Munro, Cute Little Buggers will be released later this year.
Uncork’d Entertainment’s upcoming releases include the acclaimed documentary Mom & Me, in select theaters throughout May, and highly-anticipated Summer release Gremlin.

According to the press release, "High Octane Pictures releases Clowntergeist, comparable to Warner Bros’ big Summer release IT, in September."

Trainwreck

No contemporary filmmaker has chronicled the messy human experience with the eye and ear of a comedic cultural anthropologist like JUDD APATOW. Hits as varied as those he’s directed, like Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and those he’s produced, like Superbad and Bridesmaids, are all unified by their honest, unflinching, comic look at how complicated it is to grow up in the modern world. Apatow has also built a history of helping break distinctive new comedy voices into the mainstream, from Seth Rogen to Lena Dunham, among many others. Now, in his fifth feature film as a director, Apatow again brings a portrait of an unforgettable character, and a portrayal by a breakout new comedy star, together in a film written by and starring AMY SCHUMER (TV’s Inside Amy Schumer) as a woman who lives her life without apologies, even when maybe she should apologize.
