Lost River Will Not be Released in US Theaters

In a world completely under my control Matt Smith would always be  a bow tie wearing space geek. In reality Peter Capaldi is now impressing millions of fans with his new and eccentric take on the Doctor and Matt Smith has been trying to build a name for himself outside of his most famous role.                                                                                                                                                    
Matt Smith made the decision to transition from Doctor Who to Hollywood largely because of one particular role. He was cast as a lead in a film which at one point was going to be titled How to Catch a Monster and is now called (ironically for whovians) Lost River.                                                                                                                    
 According to Lost River is about a single mother being "swept into a dark underworld while her teenage son discovers a road that leads him to a secret underwater town." With an interesting premise like that, Matt Smith starring and professional hunk Ryan Gosling directing you would think this film would be a certain success.                                                                                    

 Unfortunately that does not appear to be the case at all. After harsh reviews from critics at the Cannes Film Festival Lost River's US  theatrical release has been cancelled. It will be available for a limited time in certain theaters in LA and New York and then go straight to video in April. Their is no word as to whether or not this decision may affect other countries choice to show it.

    I for one am extremely disappointed. The trailer looked very interesting and I am eager to support Matt Smith in his career choices. Fortunately for Smith fans he is set to star in the next movie in the Terminator franchise as well as the film adaption of the book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Smith's career has still got legs.
