“Land Ho!” Icelandic road trip comedy gets release date

PanARMENIAN.Net - Sony Pictures Classics will give the bawdy road trip comedy “Land Ho!” a limited release in New York and Los Angeles on July 11, the studio said Monday, April 7, according to TheWrap.

Written and directed by Martha Stephens and Aaron Katz, “Land Ho!” stars Paul Eenhoorn and newcomer Earl Lynn Nelson, and follows a pair of retirees who set off to Iceland in an attempt to reclaim their youth through Reykjavik nightclubs, trendy spas, and rugged campsites.

“Land Ho!” is produced by Mynette Louie, Sara Murphy, and Christina Jennings, and executive produced by David Gordon Green, Julie Parker Benello, Dan Cogan, Geralyn Dreyfous and Wendy Ettinger of Gamechanger Films.

It is the first film to be financed by Gamechanger, which launched last year to exclusively finance features directed and co-directed by women.

“Land Ho!” made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January. It will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month and the Los Angeles Film Festival in June. Sony plans to expand nationwide after the initial release.
