Lynch pacts with 518 Media
Absurda asks for help with 'Empire'
Source: Variety

David Lynch's distribution shingle Absurda has contracted 518 Media to assist in theatrical distribution for "Inland Empire," his surreal three-hour drama.
Lynch also announced Rhino Entertainment will distribute the DVD and retained PR awards specialist mPRm Public Relations, which handled Lynch's "Mulholland Drive."

Lynch bought the North American rights to "Inland Empire" last month from French producer Studio Canal with the goal of distributing the pic himself. "Empire" interweaves several plot strands, including a fictitious film project, a sitcom with characters in bunny costumes and Polish prostitutes.

Lynch said Tuesday he's enthused by the do-it-yourself element of the release.

"For the first time since 'Eraserhead' I can start meeting the theater owners again, the ones at the end of the chain that have played my films over the years and helped me out," Lynch said.

David Lynch And The Cow Return
Source: Defamer

For those of you who found last week's David Lynch promotional stunt for Inland Empire too geographically inconvenient to attend, you have a second chance to catch the director, his trusty cow sidekick, and various signs celebrating Laura Dern's performance in person, where you can possibly absorb some of his cryptic wisdom on the origins of cheese. Alerts a reader apparently unaware that Lynch and his bovine prop previously graced a corner in Hollywood last Thursday:

"david lynch is on sunset and holloway right now, sitting on a corner in a director's chair with a cow next to him. he's apparently shooting something for his new Inland Empire movie with Laura Dern, and doesn't mind a bunch of people taking pictures."





Lynch set to self-release 'Empire'

NEW YORK -- David Lynch has sworn off movie studios forever. "A conventional distributor is a heartache, and I'm finished with that," the director said as he unveiled plans to release his psychodrama "Inland Empire" through his distribution company Absurda and 518 Media in December.

Lynch will embark on a 10-city theater tour to promote the film in January. With a cow. "I ate a lot of cheese during the film, and it made me happy," he explains. The tour, which had its first preview at the film's AFI Fest screening last week, also will serve as an Oscar campaign for star/co-producer Laura Dern. "I'm hoping the Academy members will be sick of 10 million trade ads and appreciate something a bit different," he said. Pianist Marek Zebrowski will accompany the director and play music featured in the film, which Lynch describes as "Polish night music."

"Empire," which features Dern as at least three characters and has different plotlines involving filmmaking, opens in Los Angeles, Pasadena, New York and Boston next month. Lynch signed a service deal with Rhino Entertainment to release the DVD with planned bonus footage alongside the three-hour feature. Rhino vp video Sig Sigworth said it's tentatively scheduled to hit stores in the summer after the film's theatrical run.

Lynch purchased rights to distribute "Empire" in October from the film's producer, StudioCanal, and will retain them in any future deals. Peter Langs, 518 Media CEO, is helping the filmmaker book "Empire" in theaters.

"With self-distribution I'm able to shape the outcome of the film so much more," Lynch said. "I'm looking forward to meeting theater owners and getting out among the people with the cow."

I might call bullshit, but a VERY interesting rumor indeed.

Inland Empire To Feature First Ever Commentary Track From David Lynch

A little Rhi... er... bird tells me that the eventual DVD of Inland Empire is to feature the first ever audio commentary by David Lynch. Wow. From what I gather this is lesser Lynch - but hearing him talk, at length, about one of his films is surely a can't-miss proposition.

Now, more than ever, I'm hoping that Inland Empire, once it finally unspools before my eyes, makes me eat crow and retract my pre-emptive tutting.

David Lynch paints an absurd scenario of himself before even Family Guy was able to!

But, I don't know. Lynch with a cow? For the entire press tour? Will anyone try to find an explanation rationalization that redeems this?

ATTN: NYC

if you missed your chance to see David Lynch / INLAND EMPIRE or you just want to see him / it again. 

Inland Empire
Series: Directors/Actors/Writers Series 2006
Director: David Lynch, Country: USA, Release: 2006

If you missed it at this year’s New York Film Festival, here’s your chance to catch up with one of the essential movie events of the year. David Lynch’s Inland Empire will have its theatrical premiere at the Walter Reade Theater on Saturday, December 2 at 7:30 p.m., when the director and some special guests will be on hand to introduce and discuss the movie. Lynch’s first foray into high-definition video, a mesmerizing surge through countless looking glasses that lands us on the far side of the land of dreams and nightmares, is just as visually stunning as his work in 35mm.

The lengthy gestation period of Inland Empire (he shot on and off over two years, and wrote as he went) has allowed Lynch to give his own uniquely epic form to many of his primary concerns: the exploitation of young women, the mutability of identity and the omnivorousness of Hollywood. And Laura Dern is altogether astonishing as the woman (or is that women?) at the center of the empire, giving more of herself to this film than most actors give throughout their entire careers.

Lynch’s first foray into high-definition video

Why do they keep saying that? He shot most (if not all) of it on a PD150, which is a prosumer miniDV camera that was already out of date two years ago. Lynch has said that he doesn't like hi-definition as much because it's too clean.
