Continuing their string of Sundance pick-ups and bringing their number of purchases to four, Magnolia Pictures has acquired the U.S. distribution rights for Craig Zobel's Compliance and Ry Russo-Young's Nobody Walks as the 2012 Sundance Film Festival came to a close. Zobel's controversial thriller tells the true-life story of a fast food restaurant terrorized by a mysterious caller, while Russo-Young's second film is a comic drama starring Olivia Thirlby and John Krasinski. Indiewire adds that Magnolia has picked up the distribution rights to Julie Delpy's comedy 2 Days in New York, her sequel to 2 Days in Paris, this one co-starring Chris Rock.
