Although he’s been sliced from Life of Pi and The Great Gatsby has been pushed to next summer, a Tobey Maguire film will still find its way to some select theaters this fall. Premiering at Sundance back in 2011, The Weinstein Company picked up Jacob Aaron Estes‘ dark comedy The Details for a wild $7.5 million, and now with almost two years gone by, are finally getting ready to release it.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
