Here Are the New Indies (Hopefully) Playing In a Theater Near You: 'The Bling Ring,' 'Call Me Kuchu' and More


"Far Out Isn't Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story"

Opening In: New York (June 21 Los Angeles and Chicago)
Synopsis: One man's wild, lifelong adventure of testing society's boundaries through his subversive art, Far Out Isn't Far Enough: The Tomi Ungerer Story combines traditional documentary storytelling with original animation culled from seven decades worth of art from the renegade children's book author and illustrator. Using a palette of 20th century events to paint an artist's epic yet controversial life story, the film offers a retrospective of Ungerer's life and art, and ponders the complexities and contradictions of a man who, armed with an acerbic wit, an accusing finger and a razor sharp pencil, gave visual representation to the revolutionary voices during one of the most tantalizing and dramatic periods in American history.


"Fukrey"
Opening In: New York, Los Angeles
Synopsis: 
College. Three of the most important years of your life. Three years of studies (at times) and sheer indulgence. Indulgence in all the little pleasures that a carefree life has to offer. But it isn't always about ragging, fuchcha parties, college fests, raves and churning out ways to whack some extra pocket money from your parents.It’s sometimes hard, ugly and complicated. More so, when you really need to get admission in the coolest college in town and you know you don’t deserve it. And to top that, you get yourself involved in the most bizarre situations that could crack you into pieces before you could crack it. 


"The Guillotines"

Opening In: New York City, California, Phoenix, Portland, Seattle, Denver
Synopsis: 
It is the deadliest weapon made by man. The mere mention of its name fills hearts with terror. Long shrouded in mystery, it launches from a distance and locks onto the target's head, the internal blades decapitating the victim with the yank of a chain. A weapon of choice for elite fighters, the flying guillotine leaves victims begging for mercy. A secret brotherhood of assassins – known only as The Guillotines – were once favored by the Emperor, but are now a force of terror and oppression under a new regime. Exiled to a remote village and hunted by a squad of fighters with firearms that challenge their cold steel, The Guillotines must now outwit and outfight enemies from both sides. From the director of the smash hit "Infernal Affairs" and "Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen" comes a brutal tale of honor, revenge, and  the ultimate weapon.

 
"Hatchet 3"
Opening In: New York, Los Angeles, Denver, Columbus OH, Kansas City MO
Synopsis: Concluding the saga begun in Adam Green's hit 2006 thriller, "Hatchet III" follows the vengeful Marybeth (Danielle Harris) as she continues seeking out a way to destroy Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder), a hulking, seemingly-invincible sociopath rampaging through a sleepy Louisiana swamp. While a heavily-ar'ed team of mercenaries takes to the bayou surrounding Crowley’s home, Marybeth finds herself begrudgingly teaming up with a local policeman (Zach Galligan) and his ex-wife (Caroline Williams) – an expert on the maniac who may have uncovered the secret to ending his murderous rampage once and for all.


"In the Fog"
Opening In: New York
Synopsis:  
It is 1942 and the western edge of the USSR is under German occupation. In the region, local partisans are waging a brutal battle against their foreign enemies. Sushenya, an innocent rail worker, is arrested with a band of saboteurs when a train is derailed not far from his village. The German officer decides to set him free rather than hang him with the others, but rumors of Sushenya’s treason spread quickly and partisans Burov and Voitik seek revenge. Captured by the partisans, Sushenya is led through the forest where they are ambushed. Soon he finds himself one-on-one with his wounded enemy, forced to make a moral choice under immoral circumstances.


"My Best Day"
Opening In: New York
Synopsis: Karen can't believe that she has to work her receptionist gig on a gorgeous Fourth of July. Then a call comes from her long-lost father. Enlisting her janitor friend Meagan to help, Karen investigates her father's trailer park home. She stumbles across a half-sister addicted to betting, a half- brother tortured by grade school bullies, a sketchy but charming buddy "just sleeping on the couch" and a potential lover in jail. Meanwhile, Meagan must decide between the stability of her longtime girlfriend and the thrill of a new love. With a small town like this, Karen's own journey sets in motion a crazy chain of events that will change not just her but this one small town forever.
