Masters Of Cinema To Release Computer Chess In The UK

We’re between instalments of Craig Skinner’s superb Masters of Cinema Monthly column right now but that doesn’t mean the Masters or their Eureka Entertainment overlords are just sitting on their hands.

Nope, they’ve just dropped one of their least expected announcements to date, slotting in Andrew Bujalski‘s Computer Chess for a cinema release in the UK later this year and a Masters of Cinema series DVD and Blu-ray release early next year.

Computer Chess premiered to acclaim at Sundance this year. This acquisition is somewhat reminiscent of Criterion’s recent IFC tie-ins, to my mind, and puts a new colour into the overall picture of what Masters of Cinema are up to.

Good films deserve good releases, though, and I’m sure this film will be given a typically fine theatrical, DVD and Blu-ray roll out.

Here’s the trailer and then a little featurette on the film.
