Arthouse Sizzle: Nicolas Cage In ‘Pig’, ‘Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain’ Turn Up The Heat – Specialty Preview

Arthouse Sizzle: Nicolas Cage In ‘Pig’, ‘Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain’ Turn Up The Heat – Specialty Preview
Two releases, very well reviewed and pretty widely available by recent specialty standards, look set to heat up the arthouse box office this weekend — Pig with Nicolas Cage in one of his best performances in years and Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain open on 600 and 952 screens respectively, and only in theaters.

Oscar-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville’s documentary about the late chef, writer and adventurer Bourdain is an intimate look at his rise to world-renowned cultural icon, capturing his presence, voice and inner demons. Vigorous marketing by distributor Focus Features was made possible by public familiarity with the Peabody and Emmy-award winning Bourdain, whose weekly series Parts Unknown moved to CNN in 2012 after running for years on Discovery’s Travel Channel (where it was called No Reservations). The intrepid master storyteller tragically took his own life in 2018 at age 61.
