2017 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Jeffrey Blitz’s Table 19
We thought that Fox Searchlight would have dropped this at last year’s Sundance or sometime in 2016, but the distribution have pegged it for a March 8th release next year and have unloaded media items include the trailer. Jeffrey Blitz reteams with his Rocket Science starlet Anna Kendrick and he has had Spellbound (2002), Rocket Science (2007) and Lucky (2010) featured in Park City. Table 19 also includes Craig Robinson, Lisa Kudrow, Stephen Merchant, Tony Revolori, June Squibb, Wyatt Russell and Amanda Crew.
Gist: Written by the the Duplass Brothers, this is described as a singles-at-the-wedding pic, the ensemble comedy follows a group of strangers who meet at the “losers” table at a wedding. Told from their perspective, the story explores what marriage means to those on the sidelines.
Production Co./Producers: P. Jennifer Dana (The Art of Getting By), Shawn Levy (Story of Your Life), Mark Roberts. EP: Tom McNulty (The Spectacular Now).
Prediction: Premieres category.
U.S. Distributor: Fox Searchlight.
