Comedies From 2015 Sundance That You Might Have a Chance To See in Theaters

This year’s Sundance Film Festival has distributors combing through the big bills in their wallets for comedy/dramedy.

Even though, Me And Earl And The Dying Girl ended up not setting a buy record at the festival, it still carried a decently sized price tag in the mid 7 figure range. 

Other films that might potentially rule the specialty box office and beyond this year include:

Kevin Pollak’s documentary Misery Loves Comedy acquired by Tribeca Film.

The D Train with Jack Black, James Marsden, Kathryn Hahn, Jeffrey Tambor, Mike White, and Kyle Bornheimer bought up by IFC Films for $3 million.

-The world rights for Results from Andrew Bujalski, the man who brought Computer Chess into the world, acquired by Magnolia Pictures.

The North American rights to Don Verdean with Sam Rockwell, Danny McBride, Leslie Bibb, Jemaine Clement, Will Forte, and Amy Ryan from Jared Hess acquired by Lionsgate.

The U.S. rights to The Bronze starring and co-written by Melissa Rauch acquired by Relativity for $3 million.

The Overnight produced by The Duplass Brothers and Adam & Naomi Scott’s Gettin’ Rad bought up by The Orchard for $4 million.

The world rights to Tangerine, also produced by The Duplass Brothers, acquired by Magnolia Pictures.

Dope with Zoe Kravitz, the voice of Forest Whitaker, Blake Anderson, and more bought up by Open Road Films and Sony Pictures for $7 million.

Mistress America from Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig bought up by Fox Searchlight for $6.5 million before it even played at the festival.

It’s inevitable that we’ll all be obsessing over their trailers in the coming months.
