COMING SOON: The A24 Slate

The upstart production company A24 Films is quickly becoming one of my favourite distributors. 2013 was just their first year in the business and their releases included personal favourites like Spring Breakers and The Spectacular Now. This year promises to be just as intriguing, as they've acquired some more really cool films. Enemy is already on demand and hits select theaters very soon. Check out the trailers for all the other films they have lined up for this year:
