Screening Gotham: Kim's Days Picked Up at Last

Some of today's movie news of note from around New York:

--We had to shut down Reeler HQ's radar for a few days last week while relocating to some new digs, and naturally, we missed one of the biggest, most encouraging developments of the year: Almost a year-and-a-half after its Sundance premiere, So Yong Kim's staggering In Between Days (right) found a distributor in Kino. The film is set to land June 27 at IFC Center, where it will overwhelm the critical populace and probably struggle to find an audience on its way to second-tier art houses and DVD. But God knows they've got enough blurbs to choose from on this site and its predecessor, so here's hoping for a little accumulated momentum.

--At Vulture, Logan Hill checks out the American Gangster trailer and has pretty much all the same questions I have. To wit: What the fuck is up with Russell Crowe's accent?

--Congrats to HDNet founders Joana Vicente and Jason Kliot, who will this evening pick up some hardware from the Mayor's Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting at a ceremony in Grand Central Terminal. The Made in NY Awards recognize "excellence and loyalty to New York represented in different disciplines of the entertainment industry," writes Gregg Goldstein at The Hollywood Reporter; producer and Black Filmmaker Foundation leader Warrington Hudlin will receive the group's inaugural Diversity Award as well.

--Finally, a bittersweet "so long" to founding ScreenGrab editor and friend of The Reeler Bilge Ebiri, who is fleeing the famine-stricken pastures of the Web to write a screenplay for money. Sellout! Who gets paid to write, anyway? [Sob, sob, sob.]
