According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Zurich International Film Festival has completed its lineup for its 10th edition, with the few last-minute editions to its schedule, including Craig Johnson’s Sundance-winning drama The Skeleton Twins, starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader. The film festival, held in the Swiss city of Zurich, runs from Sept. 25 to Oct. 5. No word yet on whether any of the film’s stars will be in attendance, but if Kristen does appear we will be sure to report it.
As mentioned in the previous post, Kristen Wiig appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today – and what an appearance it was! They talked about her latest film, The Skeleton Twins, the possibility of a Bridesmaids sequel (sorry, never going to happen) and they sang a… well, quite terrible (in the best possible way!) rendition of “Let it Go” from Disney’s Frozen. Watch the hilarious clips below, and stay tuned for more!
Later today, Kristen Wiig will make her debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote The Skeleton Twins (in select theaters now!). Judging by the preview, available here, they will be doing some singing together (improvised?) as well as the interview. As a fan of Ellen’s show, I’m very happy to see K-Wiig finally be able to make an appearance. Check back later for coverage from the show!
According to The Wrap, Kristen Wiig’s latest film, Sundance Film Festival award-winner The Skeleton Twins, got off to a fast start at the specialty box office this weekend. The drama starring Bill Hader and Wiig as long-estranged and troubled twins reuniting and putting each others’ lives back on track took in almost $411,000 from 15 theaters for a strong $27,383 per-theater average for Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate. That was easily the best of any film released this weekend. The film, directed and co-written by Craig Johnson, played in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington D.C.
The two stars, along with co-stars Luke Wilson and Ty Burrell, have been energetically promoting the film, which has an impressive 89 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The Skeleton Twins won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting award at this past Sundance Film Festival, where Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate acquired the film. A Roadside spokesman said Sunday that The Skeleton Twins will open in the balance of the top ten markets next weekend, in advance of a nationwide release on September 26. Big congrats are in order to the entire cast and crew for the early success!
Last Friday, Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader attended a screening and Q&A for The Skeleton Twins in Los Angeles. The event, hosted by Film Independent for LACMA, also had the director and co-writer Craig Johnson in attendance. Pictures from the event have been added to our photo gallery.
A couple of days ago, Kristen Wiig attended the Los Angeles premiere of The Skeleton Twins – in theaters today. She looked absolutely stunning in a blue floral dress as she posed on the red carpet alongside co-star Bill Hader and director Craig Johnson. I have added over 130 pictures from the event to our photo gallery. Click on the previews below to check them out.
