The New Comedy from Award-Winning Director Jonas Åkerlund

Available February 19th on DVD

Furnished with Two Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes



Culver City, CA (12/17/12) – Matt Lucas (Alice In Wonderland, Bridesmaids, TV’s “Little Britain”) leads a hilarious all-star cast in the new comedy SMALL APARTMENTS, available February 19th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Directed by award-winning film and music video director Jonas Åkerlund (Spun, Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi”), the film premiered at the 2012 South by Southwest Film Festival.  Nick Nunziata of Chud.com hailed the film, saying "They don't make them like this anymore. Actually they've never made them like this before."


Lucas appears in his first leading role as “Franklin Franklin,” a clumsy recluse who embarks on a hapless cover-up after accidentally killing his landlord.  Also starring in the film is Billy Crystal (When Harry Met Sally), Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), James Marsden (X-Men: The Last Stand), Peter Stormare (Fargo), Amanda Plummer (Pulp Fiction),
Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables), Rosie Perez (Pineapple Express), and Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect), with James Caan (The Godfather) and Johnny Knoxville (Jackass: The Movie). 



SMALL APARTMENTS comes furnished with two featurettes: “How to Build A Gravity Bong” features actor
Johnny Knoxville crafting the ideal smoking device; and “Small Apartments: Behind The Scenes” gives an inside look at the production of the film.


Synopsis: Trapped in a seedy LA apartment, Franklin Franklin (Matt Lucas) has a dead landlord on the kitchen floor and is surrounded by eccentric neighbors: the stoner (Johnny Knoxville) and girlfriend (Rebel Wilson), the wanna-be stripper (Juno Temple) and the artist (James Caan). To add to his chaos, a drunk investigator (Billy Crystal) is questioning him about his landlord. But none of this fazes Franklin. He dreams of Switzerland, and waits each day for an envelope from his institutionalized brother (James Marsden). Then, one day the envelope doesn’t come and Franklin becomes unhinged. Little does he know...his crazy brother has the secret that will set him free.


SMALL APARTMENTS was written by Chris Millis, based on his novel. It was produced by Ash R. Shah,
Timothy Wayne Peternel, David Hillary and Bonnie Timmermann. Ben Feingold executive produced, along with
John Glynn, Bridget McMeel and Chris Millis.



The film’s run time is approximately 97 minutes. It is rated R for language, some violence, sexual content and drug use.

 
DVD Bonus Material:

·       “How To Build A Gravity Bong” Featurette
