Limited Releases in the Limelight

April 10th, 2009

Slow week for Limited releases with just two films on this week's list. At least theirs is one film, Anvil! The Story of Anvil, that is earning amazing reviews. Lets hope its box office run is equally amazing.

Anvil! The Story of Anvil - Reviews
A Rockumentary about an aging Canadian Heavy Metal band trying for one last shot at making it in the business. The film is earning amazing reviews, but I', not sure there are enough people who are into documentaries and heavy metal to overcome the lack of name recognition then band has. Then again, how many movies earn 98% positive reviews? Anvil! The Story of Anvil opens tonight in three theaters, including the Angelika Film Center in New York City and the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles.

Lymelife - Reviews
The only other limited release on this week's list is Lymelife, but while Anvil! The Story of Anvil is earning nearly perfect reviews, this movie has to settle for just 50% positive, which is nowhere near strong enough for a limited release. On the other hand, it does have a much stronger cast, and that could be helpful during its opening weekend. Lymelife opens tonight in four theaters, three of them in New York and the fourth in New Jersey.
