New trailer, Wall Street Journal article for the long delayed “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane”
Seven years after inciting a bidding war at the Toronto International Film Festival, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane will finally be released in the United States.
Shot in Austin, Texas for $600,000, the film has been described by director Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies) as a slasher film by way of John Hughes. It’s become something of a white whale for horror fans since Harvey Weinstein snapped it up following a midnight screening at Toronto back in 2006.
Since then it’s passed through four distributors and experienced a successful overseas theatrical and DVD run without anyone in the states being able to get their hands on it. That will change on Sept. 6th, when the film debuts on video-on-demand. A limited theatrical run will follow on Oct. 11th.
The Wall Street Journal just published a lengthy history of the movie’s tumultuous path to release. There’s also a brand new trailer.
