Olivia Wilde talks Tron

Back in 1982 when Tron came out in theaters, there weren’t box office reports on the news. The general public usually didn’t know or care how much a movie made.

If a movie made a ton of money, like E.T., you’d hear about it, and if a movie was a big flop, like Heaven’s Gate, you’d hear about that as well, but again, the grosses for movies weren’t all over the place like baseball box scores back in the day.The reason why I bring this up is I had no idea Tron was a flop when I first saw it when I was ten years old, and couldn’t have cared less. I absolutely loved Tron, and thought it was one of the most amazing movies I’d ever seen, but despite the endless fan love, it wasn’t a big hit.

The fans have kept Tron’s legend going all these years to the point where the Tron Legacy sequel was made nearly thirty years later. Even though the box office for Legacy wasn’t stellar either, it made enough money for another Tron film to get the go-ahead from Disney.
So it looks pretty good we’ll have a third Tron down the road, there’s been one in development for a while, and Olivia Wilde recently let it be known she’d love to come back for another installment.

Magnolia Acquires “Drinking Buddies”

Magnolia Pictures has acquired the North American distribution rights to “Drinking Buddies,” Joe Swanberg’s comedy starring Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson that premiered at the South by Southwest film festival.

Wilde and Johnson star as Kate and Luke, friends that work at a craft brewery and struggle to suppress romantic interest in one another because they are both in relationships. A weekend trip that pairs the two of them alone changes everything

Anna Kendrick and Ron Livingston also star in the film, which Alicia Van Couvering, Andrea Roa, Paul M. Bernon, Sam Slater and Swanberg produced.

“Joe Swanberg has been evolving steadily as a filmmaker, and with ‘Drinking Buddies,’ he’s delivered his best work yet – a truly funny, smart and insightful film about real adult relationships” Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles said in a statement. “Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson and the rest of the cast also deliver some of the best work of their careers. We’re raising an imperial pint in celebration.”

Magnolia’s Dori Begley and Peter Van Steemburg made the deal with CAA, which represented the filmmakers and producers. The distribution company, owned by Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner, will release the film in theaters later this year.
