    This damn thing still hasn't got a UK distributor (I mean, it's only a UK co-production ffs...), but there's a French UHD coming in September which I'll probably grab.

            I must have missed this post previously, but.... really?? No one in the UK wants to step up to release a much-publicised, arguable-return-to-form David Cronenberg film? Jeez, what's the world (or rather this stupid country) coming to...

              Not sure what the status is now, but Alan Jones said it hadn't sold a couple of weeks ago, and that the poor US box office was unlikely to help.

                It might be a combination of the rights being comparatively expensive precisely because it's a new film by David Cronenberg and the various national distributors just not seeing enough potential audience in the marketplace right now. I am quite upset that it won't get a theatrical release until November in my country but that could also be down to the same reasons. (Another factor might be the odd but well-established belief that "horror" only works in the fall season.) I really wanted to see this theatrically but I don't have the patience to wait another 5 months.

                  Damn. $2.4M in total U.S. gross. That's sad. I'm not the biggest fan (see my review earlier in this thread), but, it's worthy of being seen.

                    I had a quick glance but couldn't find the budget but the original swing at the script in the early 2000s was budgeted at $35 million according to wikipedia. Someones taking a bath on this thing. I wonder what the likes of Netflix and HBO would have paid to have had this film exclusively for a few months without a theatrical release. I'm sure it would have been a hell of a lot more than $2.5 million.

                            As I’ve mentioned to some friends of mine, I predict that once AI takes over the world and can resort to its own leisure time, its two favorite movie directors will both have the same last name.

                              I really enjoyed this, just the sort of twisted pick-me-up that I needed today. Yes, the script is a mess, but I didn't really care. I just enjoyed the absurdist, strangely comforting body horror and Cronenberg's sly humour. The score was just perfect too.

                              But that drill to the head dummy was so fucking bad!
