Cucalorus 19 is here! Finally, we can chow down on popcorn and wacth movie after movie until our eyeballs explode! I would like to welcome MovieMaker Magazine. They are in town covering the event! So, are you ready for a full day of films from all around the world? I, however, gotta highlight the locals! The must see movies of the day!
Don’t Know Yet 4:15 pm – 6:15 pm (City Stage)
Adrift in misery, a heartbroken man lets the hitchhikers he picks up determine his destination and destiny. Everything changes when he meets a free-spirited woman who leads him on a journey of healing and self-discovery while hiding a secret of her own. Directed by UNCW professor Terry Linehan, and starring faces familiar from both around town and the silver screen, this heartfelt tale explores what it means to be lost, and what it means to be “home.” The flick stars: Cullen Moss, David Andrews, James Kyson, Lisa Goldstein Kirsch and Shane Callahan
A Short History of Decay 7:15 pm – 9:00 pm (Thalian Hall – Main Stage)
Nathan Fisher (Bryan Greenberg) is a writer who doesn’t write and a boyfriend who won’t commit. But everything changes when his father has a stroke. He receives a crash course in love, loyalty and forgiveness in this dark comedy about stepping up when your parents are going downhill – Michael Maren’s love letter to anyone who’s ever been a caregiver for someone who raised them. Filmed in Wrightsville Beach, NC and featuring a heart-wrenching performance from former Wilmington resident, Linda Lavin. The flick also stars: Emmanuelle Chriqui, Bryan Greenberg, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Harris Yulin

Also during Cucalorus, Post 1200 invites you to stop by their open house Thursday-Sunday. So many stars have passed through Post 1200 for some post work and it was also the production office for Hallmark’s Christmas in Conway. They will be doing some screenings and giving a tour of the facility along with some coffee and munchies! It a good place to just get away for a bit, have some fun and chill.
Now onto another flick to come to North Carolina! Chris Leto will direct Medal of Honor, based on the story of a real american hero, Captain Lance Sijan. “He was a Vietnam war hero that endured 46 days of hell while fighting for our country.”
They will begin principal photog in April 2014 and will shoot for about 4-6 weeks. Katrina Cook of Katz Kasting has been hired to cast principals. No word of them filming in Wilmywood, but I will keep you posted! This is a good deed project as they are donating a large portion of the proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project. I like these kinds of flicks! Looking forward to hear more about it! Like the “Medal of Honor” page NOW!
