COMPLIANCE is directed by Craig Zobel and stars Ann Dowd, Dreama Walker, Pat Healy, Bill Camp, Ashlie Atkinson and Philip Ettinger.
SYNOPSIS: Inspired by a chilling true story, “Compliance” explores just how far one might go to obey a figure of authority. On a particularly busy day at the local ChickWich, the fast food joint’s high-strung manager Sandra (Ann Dowd, “Garden State”) receives a phone call from a police officer saying her employee Becky (Dreama Walker, “Don’t Trust the B____ in Apt. 23”) has stolen money from a customer. Convinced she’s only doing what’s right, Sandra commences the investigation, following step-by-step instructions from the officer at the other end of the line, no matter how invasive they become.
The second feature from Craig Zobel (director of the 2007 Sundance hit “The Great World of Sound”), “Compliance” recounts this riveting nightmare in which the line between legality and reason is hauntingly blurred. The cast delivers startlingly authentic performances that make the events unfolding on screen impossible to turn away from. Delving into the complex psychology of the story that inspired the film, “Compliance” proves that sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction.
COMPLIANCE is set to hit theaters in a limited capacity on August 17, 2012.

THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS is directed by RZA and stars Russell Crowe, RZA, Lucy Liu, Rick Yune, Jamie Chung, Cung Le, Dave Bautista, Byron Mann, Daniel Wu and Pam Grier.
SYNOPSIS: Quentin Tarantino presents “The Man With the Iron Fists,” an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director and leading man, RZA-alongside a stellar international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu-tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero in nineteenth-century China who must unite to destroy the clan traitor who would destroy them all.
Since his arrival in China’s Jungle Village, the town’s blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans’ brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.
Blending astonishing martial-arts sequences from some of the masters of this world with the signature vision he brings as the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan and as one of hip-hop’s most dominant figures of the past two decades, RZA embarks upon his most ambitious, stylized and thrilling project to date.
THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS does not have a firm release date yet.
