Disconnect to open the Santa Barbara Film Festival

Very exciting news for Skarsgård fans attending the Santa Barbara Film Festival with the announcement that Alex’s film Disconnect will be shown the opening night of the festival (January 24th).

The 28th Santa Barbara International Film Festival (January 24-February 3), presented by lynda.com, will open the 2013 Festival with the U.S. Premiere of LD Entertainment’s Disconnect, directed by Henry-Alex Rubin and starring Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, Frank Grillo, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Andrea Riseborough, Alexander Skarsgård and Max Thieriot. Opening night will take place at the Arlington Theatre on Thursday, January 24, 2013, with director and cast expected to attend.

We will be stalking… err… watching the “normal” channels for confirmation if Alex is able to attend or not. Though, there is a high chance he may be filming a certain TV show… True Blood, you may have heard about it… (I kid) :)

Disconnect will be released April 12, 2013 in the US

About B

Really, there is never enough Eric... I'm loyal to the Viking, no matter what. I will love him whether in Book, Show, and just because... my first thoughts are of him and I close my eyes to dream of him. As far as I'm concerned, the night can not get here soon enough.

  1. Probably he will done w/ 1st ep of season 6 by then,I hope so.

  2. I hope he will be able to attend . Great news thanks for posting .

  3. Thanks for letting us know B. I am waiting for all of his films to start hitting the theaters this year and by hearing this news, it looks like its’ approaching fast!!!! I am excited to see Alex in all the various characters in his upcoming movies and hope that they are all big hits with the critics (I know the fans will love the films regardless, as we get to see him…) so that he can attain the accolades and A-lister fame he so deserves.

  4. This should be wonderful if it does come about~especially the part about the cast
    attending~I went to a prescreenig of “Straw Dog’s” and Rod Laurie was there.
    I had hoped that the cast would have been there also but that was not to be
    and the night it was held it poured cats/dogs so turnout was really low.
    Hope that the film gets great reviews!!!

  5. […] in the movie. What you don’t know is…”Disconnect” will be premiering at the Santa Barbara Film Festival! Find out more about it on this […]
