hello DC and also hello Boston! (plus some new places in the San Francisco area, too!)
That's where we're opening this weekend.
SO MANY MORE. (did we mention that we owe it all to you, beautiful kickstarters? You've really taken us so far! so far!) Ok ok, enough about that, or we might start feeling some emotions* - I mean, there's something stuck in my eye, nothing to see here.
SO, last weekend in Seattle was a success, and Taika Waititi and the crew ran into some crazy horses and they were making crazy hand gestures.
Did you know that the crazy horses have their own EMOTICON? Well they DO.
And it's _|>_|>_|>_|>_|> (see? it looks like a horse. and like a crazy hand gesture.)
See you in DC (Landmark's E Street Cinema - after the Saturday, March 31st 5:00 and 7:30pm shows) and BOSTON (Landmark's Kendall Square Cinema - after the March 30th Friday 7pm show and before the 9:40pm show) for Q&As! (that's right, Taika's still doing Q&As, dedication to the cause PERSONIFIED.)
- the team
*Speaking of emotions - DON CHEADLE thinks BOY is a "good flick" (!!!!)
Hi guys. Just a quick note to say hello and that I will soon(ish) be getting on to your rewards. I am on the road for the next month, promoting BOY and doing press and Q&A's, so I haven't got time to get all of those things together. Rest assured they're coming, especially the 80 or so drawings I have to do.
For the 393 backers who pledged $1 in return for me thanking them at night before going to sleep. I did that last night, with all 393 of you. I thanked you all in my own special way, in my mind, and from memory I think everyone had a great time. There was a lot of stuff to clean up afterwards and of course it was messy and the walls needed wiping, but you all consented and approached it with open minds. Thank you for a night I will never forget.
Hope you're all well and happy.
& here's the Q&A info for Seattle:
Friday March 23: Following the 7:00pm show
Saturday March 24: Following the 4:40pm and 7:00pm shows

And now for a note from the team featuring a **celebrity cameo**:
It's not all about the NEW cities, we are still going and going in NYC, LA and SAN FRAN! BOY is still at the Angelika theater in NYC! MAYBE it's because Wyatt Cenac of The Daily Show (maybe you've heard of it) showed up last week when we randomly snuck into a theater to see what was up last Wednesday. (what? you don't do that?)
Famous people : No Longer Too Good To See Movies In Theaters
Have you seen BOY in the theater? What? WHAT. WHAT. Do you think you're better than a famous person? Of course you don't because you gave to this movie on Kickstarter and are therefore awesome. But doesn't it make going to theaters that much more exciting when there's a chance you could run into Wyatt Cenac?!*
