Infinitely Polar Bear will be presented in the U.S. Dramatic Competition program during Sundance 2014! I have added 3 stills from the movie.
Is Hulk your favorite character in The Avengers? If yes, then you will be pleased to know that Hot Toys has unveiled some pictures of its upcoming collectible figure capturing Hulk’s better half: Bruce Banner.
Mark Ruffalo gave a wonderful performance as the gamma radiated, vulnerable doctor in Joss Whedon‘s superhero film, (my personal favourite is the scene where he just casually beats Loki into the ground,) and the collectible is specially crafted in the image of him.
The scribe behind Monsters vs. Aliens and The Rocker would normally be the last person I’d associate with Sundance, much less the director’s chair…but sometimes it’s a question of who and what you know. Equipped with excellent technical folk such as cinematographer Bobby Bukowski and editor Michael R. Miller, Maya Forbes expands on a story inspired by personal events and is surrounded here with A listers Zoe Saldana and Mark Ruffalo. Shooting of Infinitely Polar Bear began back in April in Providence, Rhode Island, so logically this is in the clear for a festival showing and might be a high sale price.
Gist: Ruffalo plays a bipolar husband and father who goes off his medication, and then loses both his sanity and job while struggling to hold onto his marriage. Saldana would play his put-upon wife, who, after going back to work, ends up moving out of the house, leaving him with the kids.
Production Co./Producers: Sam Bisbee (Robot & Frank), Paper Street Films’s Bingo Gubelmann and Benji Kohn (Hello I Must Be Going), Plum Pictures’ Galt Niederhoffer
Prediction: U.S. Dramatic Competition or they’ll wait it out until TIFF.

Stuart Blumberg’s R-rated dramedy will arouse Blu-ray in January.
In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate says ‘Thanks for Sharing’ is coming to Blu-ray on January 7.
Adam (Mark Ruffalo) takes his sex addiction rehabilitation one day at a time, and this is the same advice he offers to his friends Mike (Tim Robbins) and Neil (Josh Gad) who are also battling similar dependency issues. When Adam meets and falls for Phoebe (Gwyneth Paltrow) she tells him due to a past relationship gone sour she has vowed never to date another addict and Adam is then forced to keep his troubles a secret. But as Phoebe begins making advances on Adam will he be able to continue keeping his secret under wraps or can he finally turn sex into a meaningful aspect of his life and save their relationship?
The Blu-ray/Ultraviolet combo will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: “One Step at a Time: The Making Of Thanks For Sharing” featurette; Audio commentary with co-writer/director Stuart Blumberg and co-writer Matt Winston; Gag Reel and Deleted Scenes.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
Mark Waid is keen to see Mark Ruffalo star in a solo Hulk movie.
The Indestructible Hulk writer has called the Bruce Banner actor the “breakaway star” of Marvel Studios’ The Avengers.
“Oh, please, yes,” said Waid when asked by Newsarama about a possible spinoff film.
“He’s tailor made for a film adventure.
“Wasn’t he the breakaway star of Avengers? He was in my theatre, I’ll tell you that.
“[Ruffalo is] spot-on. I love how he’s more driven than tormented, and the Bruce Banner/Tony Stark bromance is positively inspirational.”
Waid is currently working on Marvel Comics’ Indestructible Hulk with artist Matteo Scalera, as well as the acclaimed Daredevil series.
Ruffalo is expected to reprise his role as Bruce Banner/the Hulk in 2015′s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
