misc. upcomings and goings  
Jeff Wells recently posted about Liberal Arts wondering why there hasn't been any publicity or website given it is coming out in two months and suggested the distributor, IFC, wasn't that keen on it.

IFC responded with:
Update: IFC Films bigwig Ryan Werner says "everything is coming momentarily on Liberal Arts. We've been working with Josh this summer on the materials, etc. And we just did a NYC screening and party at BAM Cinemafest and the film played huge. We remain super enthusiastic."

So that's good news. I can't wait :)

In less positive news, I'm a little concerned about This is Where I Leave You. Last we saw, Adam was scouting locations a month ago. In the meantime though, Rock of Ages underwhelmed both financially and critically. And Jason Bateman tweeted on July 10th that filming of Arrested Development "starts in four weeks" which to me indicates he'll be busy filming that in the fall, overlapping the intended filming period for TIWILY. Further Adam has said nothing and responds to no questions about the project, which is unusual for him, and I haven't seen any production info popping up on any of the databases. So it seems like something fell apart somewhere along the way. I have mixed feelings if this did happen. My main reservation has always been Adam. I love Adam for Hairspray and supporting Zac but his track record otherwise as a director is pretty dim. Otherwise though, I liked the cast, the book, and Zac's character. I liked that it was comedy more than romance for him. And Zac could definitely use a studio project. I guess hopefully it was just pushed back a bit. But I really can't wait for Zac to get back to real work, not just promo. So whatever is happening, I hope he gets back on set soon.

In better news, we should hear next week if At Any Price made it into Venice and TIFF. Fingers crossed. I'm also curious if The Paperboy might screen at TIFF. As a side note, in the upcoming weeks, Liberal Arts will screen at the Traverse City Film Festival, the Melbourne International Film Festival and the New Zealand 2012 International Film Festival.

You're not stupid and no need to be sorry. Nobody of us here speaks any Russian. :)

Esp is an abbreviation for especially. And TIFF stands for Toronto International Film Festival, which is a big film festival in Sept. in Canada.

Thank you Bee. Спасибо тебе :)
You helped me a lot. I found some abbreviations, but I still don't know much ... :)

You know the Urban Dictionary, right?

It might not have the movie specific abbreviations but it has almost all Internet speak and a LOT of casual language. I use it a lot too.

Oh no, I don't.
But now I can see it and will use them. Thank you Bee. :)

Another solution would be for posters to avoid using abbreviations and Internet slang here. We are not limited in space and don't really need to use textual short-cuts to compress our messages.
