BUNRAKU: STILL NO DISTRIBUTION DEAL FOR THE U.S.A.

Gregory Ellwood and Drew McWeeny from HitFix confirmed in an article published today that BUNRAKU is still 'hoping to be picked up' by an U.S. distributor during the Toronto Film Festival 2010. Ellwood and McWeeny conclude that '[BUNRAKU] is one of those action films that aims to be something outside the norm, so the stakes are high. If it fails, it could be awful, but if it succeeds, this "Yojimbo" riff set in a world that appears to be made of paper filled with crazy colorful criminals and lowlifes could be the trippiest kick of the festival. There's buzz building already, and anyone planning to attend the Midnight Madness screening should be ready for anything.'

Mixing BUNRAKU. Terence's score is sounding awesome. It's great to finally have amazing sound matching the amazing visuals.

Who would buy a movie which is not going to make money at the box-office? 'Scott Pilgrim' flopped. 'Piranha 3D' is not doing much better. Idem for 'Vampires Suck'. All those 'over the top' movies performed poorly at the box-office. It cost a lot of money Aloya to release a movie, it is not free.

As you say Aloha let us hope. But for those you have the opportunity to see BUNRAKU at Toronto they should go for it. BUNRAKU is in the same vein of Scott Pilgrim which basically flops. I don't see in the near future any US distributors buying BUNRAKU for a wide release...except is the film is as exceptional as Sin City.
