One in a two-part series of Big Thangz Poppin’ for Aural Standards. We are tickled pink to announce that Oscilloscope Laboratories, the film distro. co. co-founded by the late great Beastie Boy Adam Yauch, has acquired North American rights to It’s a Disaster. This is, of course, our most recent music supervision project with the brilliant Vacationeers team headed up by Todd Berger. Oscilloscope has also recently gotten behind the LCD Soundsystem documentary Shut Up and Play the Hits, and one of our favorites*, Bellflower. What does this mean? We’ll be in theaters and on demand early next year. This comes thanks to an extremely strong showing at the L.A. Film Fest. Whoo!
Info: David Cross, Julia Stiles and America Ferrera star in the second feature-length film from writer/director Todd Berger, It’s a Disaster. Four couples come together for a weekend brunch only to discover that they’re trapped at the host’s house at the end of days. Features music by Violent Femmes, Baths, Lord Huron, The M’s, PAPA, White Arrows, Big Search, the Cloak Ox, and Slang Chickens.
*We wrote a story about this movie for SPIN but it isn’t online. Will fix soon.
