Sony Pictures Classics announced today that it will release Martha Stephens and Aaron Katzís Land Ho! on July 11 in New York and Los Angeles, followed by openings nationwide. Additionally, Land Ho! will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival in April and the Los Angeles Film Festival in June. The film made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
Starring Paul Eenhoorn (This is Martin Bonner) and newcomer Earl Lynn Nelson, Land Ho! follows a pair of retirees who set off to Iceland in an attempt to reclaim their youth through Reykjavik nightclubs, trendy spas, and rugged campsites.
A bawdy road trip comedy, Land Ho!, is produced by Mynette Louie, Sara Murphy, and Christina Jennings, and executive produced by David Gordon Green, and Julie Parker Benello, Dan Cogan, Geralyn Dreyfous, and Wendy Ettinger of Gamechanger Films. It is the first film to be financed by Gamechanger, which launched last fall to exclusively finance features directed and co-directed by women. Keegan DeWitt of the band Wild Cub, whose summer tour kicks off this week, did the film score.
