You put up a stink, only to have what was so desired fall into one’s lap mere days later. Who are these people saying complaints don’t get anything? Probably also those who warn against taking credit where it couldn’t really be due…
But on to the good news: we’ve received word that Brian De Palma‘s Passion, a title anticipated by many around these here parts, is finally coming to U.S. theaters this July, courtesy of eOne.
