Brian Weathersby (PAUL DANO) is a 28 year-old salesman at a high-end Swedish mattress company. The afterthought child to elderly parents (ED ASNER, JANE ALEXANDER), and the youngest son in a trio of successful brothers, a shady oil man (IAN ROBERTS), a surgeon (ROBERT STANTON), Brian is searching for his place in the world. Unfulfilled by his work he spends a good portion of his day pursuing his goal of someday adopting a baby from China. He gets swept up in a romance with the lovely but misguided Harriet Lolly (ZOOEY DESCHANEL) when she comes in to his store one day and falls asleep on one of the beds. To win her over, he must compete with her bear of a father, Al Lolly, (JOHN GOODMAN) an art-collecting loudmouth with a bad back and deep pockets. GIGANTIC is a funny, surreal love story about the anxiety that comes when two people with crazy families collide unexpectedly and fall for each other.

AMS Pictures’ Stop the Presses: The American Newspaper in Peril
Makes Television Debut on KERA-TV
National Distribution Secured
DALLAS/FORT WORTH: With newspapers across the nation hemorrhaging journalists as they battle declining advertising sales, increased stockholder pressure and the influence of the Internet, a new television documentary examines the plight of print journalism and the impact on American democracy. Revised and updated since its film festival debut in 2008, Stop the Presses: The American Newspaper in Peril makes its American television debut Monday, October 26 at 9:00 p.m. on KERA-TV. The documentary will be distributed nationally by American Public Television early next year.
“This is the only documentary that has been produced on this critical subject,” says newspaperman and filmmaker, Manny Mendoza. “New data by the Project for Excellence in Journalism shows that 10,000 journalists have been laid-off or bought-out since we concluded production of this project in 2008. That means some 14,000 journalists have lost their jobs nationally since 2001.”
Stop the Presses uses interviews with reporters, editors, media critics, journalism professors, students and newspaper readers to document the historic role of newspaper journalists as public watchdogs. Pulitzer Prize winners Ben Bradlee and Anne Hull of The Washington Post, David Carr of The New York Times, Ken Auletta of The New Yorker, humor columnist Dave Barry with The Miami Herald and Ed Asner, TV’s Lou Grant, are among those interviewed for the project. The documentary also incorporates film clips depicting the image of journalists in popular culture from His Girl Friday, Deadline U.S.A., Ace in the Hole, Inherit the Wind, All the President’s Men and The Paper.
The Chicago Sun Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Philadelphia Daily News all filed for bankruptcy protection this year. The Tribune Co. media group filed for bankruptcy in December 2008. “We originally subtitled the film Death of the American Newspaper,” says Producer/Director Mark Birnbaum. “That seemed like hyperbole at the time and we changed it. We could have stayed with the original title because, sadly, that’s what appears to be taking place.”
Stop the Presses made its world premiere amidst critical acclaim at the 2008 AFI-Dallas International Film Festival. The documentary also screened at the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, the Starz Denver International Film Festival and the Berkeley Video and Film Festival where it was awarded a Gold Medal.
The film has also been screened on numerous college and university campuses. An educational version of the documentary, which includes an accompanying guide for high school and university journalism teachers, is available online at www.amspictures****.
Stop the Presses: The American Newspaper in Peril is a production of AMS Pictures and End of Story Films. The documentary was co-produced by Director/Producers Mark Birnbaum and Manny Mendoza with Executive Producer, Andy Streitfeld. Additional information about the documentary is available at www.stopthepressesdoc****.

Ed Asner talks about emotions being "Up" on the 5 Oscar nominations for Up and more.
Ed Asner describes himself as "still a child. Bewitched, bothered and bewildered." Known to us as Lou Grant, he's the familiar voice on hundreds of movies and, most recently, the Disney film Up!
ED ASNER: UNITY IS THE KEY Actor Edward Asner takes his role as tough journalist (Mary Tyler Moore Show and Lou Grant 1970-1982) to heart: he courageously asks tough questions about 9-11. He examines and rejects the official story. He follows the leads. He takes risks, as any journalist, writer or activist must who faces head-on the "culpability and criminality" within the U.S government. But Ed Asner wisely suggests that "unity is the key" for the nascent "9-11 movement". Suspect those who use ad-hominem tactics as either incompetent or having a hidden agenda.
