OSAISON'S TAKE ON POSSIBLE TELLURIDE FILMS
Jason Osiason is a friend of MTFB and has one of the best predictive minds in all of film twitterdom. He won last year's Gold Derby Oscar contest. He's really good.
Recently, he put together a list of films that he feels have a real shot at playing Telluride and shared that with me. With his permission, I thought I'd pass that list along.
Here's what he lists as "Likely" Telluride films:
20th Century Women
Bleed for This
Fire at Sea
The Eagle Huntress
The Red Turtle
Things to Come
How to Talk to Girls at Parties
He also lists as "possible":
My Life as a Courgette (just won the top prize at the Annecy Fest)
The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez
The Meyerowitz Stories
The Son of Joseph
Birth of a Nation
Girl on a Train
Jason has a couple of other ideas but we'll let those percolate for now. I think his "likely" list is very, very good/impressive.
And I guess this is as good a time as any to announce that MTFB will have its first "Ten Bets" list for 2016 up on FRIDAY, June 26. It's about to get serious.
AMERICAN HONEY TRAILER APPEARS
Andrea Arnold's American Honey had a trailer drop yesterday. The film stars Shia LaBeouf and Sasha Lane and is distributed by A24 which was at Telluride recently with Room, Under the Skin and Ginger and Rosa.
Arnold has also been represented at Telluride with Fish Tank.
Here's the trailer from YouTube...it intrigues:

ALSO A NEW TRAILER FOR THE BIRTH OF A NATION
Nate Parker's Sundance sensation, The Birth of a Nation released a new, full length trailer yesterday as well. I've flogged the notion that Telluride doesn't play Sundance films multiple times in this space but I've also frequently noted that they have had occasional exceptions. Could this film be one of those rare exceptions?
Some people think it could.
Here's the new trailer from YouTube:

That's the post for Wednesday...
