02/27/09Where Is Outlander This Week?

EDIT (March 1st): I've added four more locations to the list. There should be 12 US locations this week. We have nine listed. Anyone know what the last three are?

What the hell? Why don't I have a list of theaters for this week? Why didn't we get the full list for last week? Whatever... But the good news is that the Weinsteins half-assed (or is that giving them too much credit?) theatrical release of Outlander continues. If you happen to know whether Outlander is playing in your town email us and we'll post it heres so hopefully more people get a chance to see the film in theaters. So with that I can give you the locations I do know that are playing the film in the US this week:

  • Oregon

  • Portland - Cornelius Stadium Cinemas

  • Michigan

  • Muskegon - Cinema Carousel

    Lansing - Celebration! Cinema & IMAX Theatre

02/18/09Seattle Outlander Event Impressions

Last night's Outlander event at the Seattle Sci-Fi museum was a success and various impressions are making their way online. Case in point: Aint it Cool has posted a write-up by "Doc Poison" who was in attendance and who really dug the film as well as the Direction Q&A that followed. Check out the full article HERE. Also of note is that Aint it Cool's Harry also seems to really have liked the film even calling it the best indie film he's seen this year.

02/17/09Turkish Release Date update

After a number of delays, and uncertainty, Outlander once again has a release date in Turkey. Turkish cinema affectionados can catch the film in theaters April 10th.

02/17/09Thai Posters and Website

As previously reported, Outlander is invading Thai theaters February 26th. Since Mongkol Films seems more interested in marketing than a certain North American distributor they've already set up a nifty website with the trailer with Thai subtitles, character bios, a synopsis, and more. You can check out the site HERE. The site is also peppered with nifty images reminicent of these two (that's right! TWO) new posters they've made for their release. They combined the Best elements of both the international and US posters along with a few neat extras that remind us of the Upcomming french DVD cover. Have a look below!

02/13/09US Theaters For Week of February 13th

Once again, apologies for the late list. We hope you all find somewhere suitable to catch Outlander on the big screen this weekend. Of note is that a number of theaters in the list are drive-ins.

Also note that we have a bit of extra heads-up this time on a few locations for next week! We're unclear as of yet if more locations will be announced, but at the bottom of the list are a few places you can catch Outlander on the big screen the week of February 20th.

We'd also like to remind anyone in Seattle of the upcomming "Exposed: Inside Film" series special event. At 7:00 PM this tuesday, February 17th is a screening of Outlander followed by an live discussion with Outlander director Howard McCain. There's still some tickets left and considering that they're only five dollars and that it may be your last chance to catch Outlander on the big screen in Seattle, this is certainly a bargain. Head over to Warren Report website to request a seat now!

Singapore Poster

Do you live in Singapore? Do you want free tickets to an advance screening of Outlander? Then head over to theUrban Wire for contest details and to enter for your chance at one of the five pairs of tickes being given away for the Thursday, February 12th Screening. Outlander is being distributed by Festive Films in Singapore and opens theatrically February 19th.

Interestingly Singapore seems to have taken a slightly different route with their ad campaign, compared to some of the other countries, employing the tag line "Earth's first alien invasion... and its bloodiest" and "The epic battle ignites February 19th."
