And a few more...

A number of these titles are off my radar, but they may be of some interest to you. Firstly, Lionsgate has pushed their release of Drugstore Cowboy as part of the Meridian Collection to 3 February, which is good news because it was starting to look like I got some wrong information about the release.

Dimension/Weinstein Company have also delayed Eden Lake by a week, now set for 6 January. The Weinstein Company have also announced the release of Alan Cumming's first turn as director without Jennifer Jason Leigh, originally titled Suffering Man's Charity, now going by the more generic Ghost Writer. The film's expansive cast includes Cumming, Carrie Fisher, Anne Heche, Karen Black, David Boreanaz, Henry Thomas and Jane Lynch. The film is set for 6 January.

Watchmaker Films is releasing Eagle Pennell's The Whole Shootin' Match, from 1979, on 13 January. According to the IMDb, Robert Redford said something about this film being the inspiration for his Sundance Film Festival. Image Entertainment will release Oxide Pang Chun's thriller Diary on 3 February.

And, Shout Factory! has announced a few titles for January. First off is Michael O'Donoghue's Mr. Mike's Mondo Video, which features, among others, Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin, Carrie Fisher (again), Teri Garr, Debbie Harry, Margot Kidder, Bill Murray, Laraine Newman, Gilda Radner and Paul Shaffer. Expect it on 13 January. Also on the lineup is Roger Graef's The Secret Policeman's Ball, making its US premiere. The film features Rowan Atkinson, John Cleese, Billy Connolly and Pete Townshend, again among others; the benefit concert film streets on 20 January. And finally, Al Silliman Jr.'s The Stewardesses, a 3-D erotica which the IMDb lists as one of the most profitable (cost vs gross) films of all time. That'll be out on 27 January. All for now.
