There is no confirmation regarding this and I’d take any news reports about this with a grain of salt. Every week, you hear of some actor who...

Bend It Like Beckham now out

“Bend It Like Beckham” is now out in limited release in the US! Unfortunately, “Prozac Nation” is not coming out this Friday. Instead it is looking like it will be released in June instead according to Miramax’s website. Let’s hope Mixamax does not push back this film once again and that it might finally make it to theatres.
