Deadline Hollywood is reporting that the film distribution
arm of Alamo Drafthouse has picked up the film I Declare War for release in the second half of this year. I caught
a screening of this film at the 2012 Fantastic Fest and have been eagerly
awaiting news of its official release. I
Declare War is a Canadian film about a group of kids playing capture-the-flag
in the woods. As they play, we see their imaginations; sticks become machine
guns, etc. What makes this film brilliant is an amazing cast of child actors
and the way in which the material is handled by the writer and director. The
film handles the way kids think and behave very honestly and is not
patronizing. <>
Tim League, founder of Alamo Drafthouse, in his statement about
the acquisition references films like Stand
by Me, Full Metal Jacket, and Lord of the Flies. Those are perfect
choices because I Declare War really
shares a lot of the best elements of all those films, but it also has one of
the more unique points of view Iíve ever seen on film. When a release date is
set Iíll post a more complete review, but for now this is very exciting news. I
think this film will be one of the must-see genre titles of 2013. <>
