You Get Me Première Today

you_get_me_poster_003A quick reminder that the not-at-all-like Fatal Attraction teen drama You Get Me is due have its première tonight (19th June) in Los Angeles.

The film is being shown as part of the LA Film Festival, which started last Wednesday with a showing of the new Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World writer/director) movie The Book Of Henry.  Naomi Watts (Tank Girl) and Jack Tremblay (Room) star as mother and son in that one.

Since then there has been a busy schedule of features and documentaries, both old and new.  The event continues until Thursday night when, after an afternoon and evening of award winner showings, the festival closes with a screening of Ingrid Goes West, a social media-based comedy drama starring Aubrey Plaza (Parks And Recreation) and Elizabeth Olsen (Old Boy).

The Bella Thorne, Halston Sage, Taylor John Smith, Anna Akana, Nash Grier, Jennifer Esposito, Kathryn Morris, Netflix-owned movie You Get Me will be shown tonight at the ArcLight cinema in Santa Monica at 9:25pm.  Full details can be found at the LA Film Festival website HERE.

Another variant on the film poster, as shown above, has been added to the Gallery.

On Friday (23rd June) the film will receive its slightly delayed release on the streaming service.

You Get Me Trailer

title_001Ahead of its première at the upcoming LA Film Festival, Awesomeness Films has released a trailer for the teen drama You Get Me.

That first showing of the movie is due to happen on the 16th of June, a week from today, as I reported a couple of weeks ago.  After that the film will take up residence on the Netflix streaming service, which bought the rights a few months ago.

trailer_001Slightly worryingly, recently made available press material has not included any references to Kathryn in the named cast.  She, however, has remained listed on the film’s IMDb page through various updates and additions.  Mixed signals.

So, do we get a glimpse of Kathryn in this short trailer video?  No, we don’t.  Not surprisingly the two minute long video focuses on the main teenage cast and giving away the main plot line.  That’s what trailers are for these days.

For completeness I have added the video to the KM UK Gallery HERE.

Hopefully there will be other trailers released at a later date giving a fuller picture.

You Get Me To Première At LA Film Fest

la_film_festival_logo_942x1461A somewhat surprising turn of events.

Teen drama You Get Me will be premièred at the LA Film Festival on Monday the 19th of June.

But wait, you might say, a film being first shown at a film festival is hardly an usual occurrence.  It is practically the law  :-)

But, we found out earlier this year that Netflix had taken up Awesomeness Films, Bella Thorne-lead movie.  Making it an exclusive to their media streaming platform as part of a multi-project deal.

That date may trigger a thought or two as well.

The 16th of June was due to be the day that You Get Me first appears on Netflix.  To make way for the LA Film Festival première the online release has been pushed back to the 23rd of the month.

So, a future-looking service like Netflix has delayed the release of a new film in favour of the more traditional film festival route.  Next they’ll be announcing it will be available exclusively at Blockbuster video stores on Betamax cassettes 5 years after hitting the silver screen.  I am old enough to remember all those things :-(

Very little press material has been released about You Get Me so there isn’t much more to say about the film even at this late stage.  We still don’t know the role Kathryn plays, not even the first name of her character.

The première screening is due to start at 9:25pm at the ArcLight 8 cinema in Santa Monica.

You can see all the details of the LA Film Festival on their website HERE.

‘You Get Me’ To Be Gettable In June

you_get_me_poster_002Awesomeness Films, the production company behind the thriller teen drama You Get Me, has announced a movie deal with the subscription streaming service Netflix.

Not to blow our own trumpet too much but back in February here on KM UK we noted that the Bella Thorne-starrer was headed in that direction.

The only logical conclusion to draw from that piece of information was that it was likely to be released exclusively on the online only network.  Why else would Netflix put its name to it?

Now the deal has been confirmed we can finally put an actual date on when the film will be available to all subscribers:  16th June 2017.

What we still don’t know at this point is the part Kathryn plays in this Fatal Attraction-style drama based amongst high-school students.  Or, for that matter the other adult character played by recent NCIS addition Jennifer Esposito.

Hopefully we’ll know more soon as the mid-June release date approaches.

The Protocol Returns

on_set_012Cast your mind back…  No, further than that…  Woah there!  Not that far!  Nobody needs to see that!  :-)

Where to begin with this?  The beginning sounds good.

The best part of four years ago now we first heard about The Protocol.  It was a short film made by Johnny Messner’s (Kathryn’s partner) own production company.  A then very pregnant Kathryn had a role alongside many-named Xen Sams and Max Ryan (Sex And The City 2).  Nepotism abounded as Xen’s partner was also a producer.  It looked like it involved some near future, almost sci-fi setting with Xen Sams as Agent Amanda Chase.  The images we saw were set in an interrogation room, with the tables turned on Kathryn on for a change.

For the following couple of years we’d occasionally pick up snippets of info about the project.  Mainly from Xen giving interviews in which it was mentioned.  At some point The Protocol looked to have become a small pilot for a planned TV series.  I even went to the trouble of moving what content we had in the KM UK Gallery from the movie section to the TV area!

After a couple of years the film had dropped off the radar, with its IMDb page being removed.  So much for the TV series!

Well would you Adam and Eve it!  A few weeks ago I became aware that the project might be resurrected.  A new IMDb page has appeared, with very scant information on it, other than a two person cast list (Xen and Max) and describing it as a short film again.  I’m not moving the Gallery album until I know more!

This led to tracking down a short clip (which ends abruptly) from the film which I can bring to you today.  It’s the Xen and Max show but Kathryn makes a silent showing for a few seconds.  Not a lot of acting involved unless you include acting pregnant.  And she really didn’t need to act that!  The small video (and a few screenshots from it) are now in the KM UK the Gallery.  Look at the TV screen we see in the room with Kathryn.  There are some odd images on it that I can’t make out.  Any thoughts?

Hopefully this is a sign of bigger things to come from The Protocol.
