LOS ANGELES, Calif. 2-12-2010
They may be low-budget independent films, but the premieres at next month’s Sundance Film Festival are loaded with stars, including Al Pacino, Katie Holmes, Pierce Brosnan, Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Spacey and Tobey Maguire.
Among other premieres announced Thursday: George Ratliff’s evangelical tale “Salvation Boulevard,” with Brosnan and Connelly; JC Chandor’s economic-crisis drama “Margin Call,” starring Spacey; David Mackenzie’s love story “Perfect Sense,” with Ewan McGregor and Eva Green; Tom McCarthy’s wrestling comedy “Win Win,” with Paul Giamatti and Amy Ryan; Miguel Arteta’s business-conference comedy “Cedar Rapids,” with Ed Helms, John C. Reilly and Sigourney Weaver; and Jacob Aaron Estes’ domestic romp “The Details,” featuring Maguire and Elizabeth Banks.
“Salvation Boulevard” co-star Greg Kinnear stars in a second Sundance premiere, Jill Sprecher’s “The Convincer,” about an insurance salesman caught in a scheme involving a rare musical instrument. “The Convincer” also features Alan Arkin, who co-starred with Kinnear in the 2006 Sundance premiere “Little Miss Sunshine,” which earned Arkin the supporting-actor Academy Award.
