This is scary and this is not referring to Elijah Wood's movie, Maniac, in which the actor plays a psychopathic killer, but rather a decision that bans the film from being released theatrically in New Zealand. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the country's Office of Film and Literature Classification has restricted the viewing of the remake of the 1980 cult hit to film festivals and film studies courses. The second NatGeo telepic, 'Killing Kennedy' based on a Bill O'Reilly book screens footage at TCA, while the cast and crew compares America's Camelot to Shakespeare and defend the author's politics. Alex Gibney's documentary look at Lance Armstrong has been picked up for worldwide release by Sony Pictures Classics. The film, titled The Armstrong Lie, chronicles the last several years of the cyclist's life and career.
