Specialty B.O. Preview: ‘Any Day Now’, ‘Yelling To The Sky’, ‘Save The Date’, ‘Let Fury Have The Hour’

A slew of indie actors have movies opening in the specialty arena this weekend. Alan Cumming has won festival raves for his role in Music Box Films’ Any Day Now. The film actually has a more ambitious initial rollout than most among its peers. Zoë Kravitz and Gabourey Sidibe star in Yelling To The Sky, Victoria Mahoney’s personal story of growing up in a rough neighborhood.

And Let Fury Have The Hour is a Tribeca Film Festival debut that took years to  ake that only finished once festivals came knocking.

Cumming committed almost immediately. After he came on board, the other acting team easily came together. Read More »
