‘Maxed’ and ‘Mask’ Open in March

'Maxed' and 'Mask' Open in March

It’s worth taking a breath from SXSW 2007 prep, to focus attention on two premieres from SXSW 2006, that will be opening in theaters next month. Both of the films could not be more unalike, yet share the fact that they were both loved by audiences and critics when they were discovered at SXSW last year. The first, James Scurlock’s credit-card documentary Maxed Out, opens in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Washington D.C., Seattle, and Austin, on March 9. Click here for more information, including cities that will soon follow and information on this highly enjoyable and somewhat disturbing new doc.

Then, on March 16, comes Scott Glosserman’s geek-endorsed horror satire, Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon. Heartily beloved by all the sources you can trust (Variety, Aint It Cool News, Film Threat, Fangoria, CHUD, Scott Weinberg), this could be one of the most unifying horror-fanatic releases of 2007. The film begins to roll out March 16, in a slew of theaters across the nation. Click here for more on the film, including its cool trailer.

So, if you haven’t already, go out and catch these films at some point in March. And, who knows which SXSW 2007 premieres we’ll be seeing in theaters next year…
