Miley Cyrus' "LOL": In Theaters Now!


Nashville, Houston, Cleveland, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Salt Lake City & Sacramento--- today's the day!!  LOL, French director Lisa Azuelo's indie teen comedy is now playing in select US theaters! Miley Cyrus stars as Lola, living in Chicago and exploring the challenges teenagers and their parents face today in love, family, and friendships in our increasingly digitally-connected world.

"Everything about this movie touched my heart," Miley was quoted as saying in an interview, "I knew it was the perfect thing for me." LOL is Cyrus' first non-Disney film, and co-stars other big names like Demi Moore and Ashley Greene, along with a bunch of fresh faces like Douglas Booth, Ashley Hinshaw, and Lina Esco.

Filmed independently in Detroit, Chicago, and Paris in summer 2010, Lionsgate quickly snatched up the distribution rights to release LOL. However, due to financial issues and several executive shake-ups within the company, the indie flick was shelved for almost two years. The movie was finally given its domestic release date from Lionsgate earlier this spring, but fans were met with the disappointing news of a very limited release, sparking a fan campaign to help bring the movie to more theaters and (hopefully) get a wider release.

What are some things you can do to bring LOL to your area? Contact your local theaters-- let them know about the movie and request they carry it; display LOL-related banners, icons, backgrounds on your facebooks, tumblrs, and twitters; and most of all--- keep spreading the word! Share the trailer everywhere, and most of all: encourage the people you know in those 7 cities listed above to see the movie so Lionsgate sees the demand!

Check out some new pictures of the cast, an exclusive pic of director Lisa Azuelos posing with Miley's movie BFFs Lina Esco and Ashley Hinshaw, and a full list of theaters the movie's showing at behind the cut!

fucking go to st louis and see it with your mom, wave shopping in front of her face or sth

if you dont ask her ill text her i swear!!!!
laurenlip20 4th-May-2012 09:31 pm (UTC)
so there was no LA premiere for this?
pseudovirus 4th-May-2012 09:38 pm (UTC)
nope. no LA dates either. or NY. lionsgate put it in places where it's unlikely to succeed. it was in miley & demi's contract for this movie to be in 100 theaters, so it's in the bare minimum amount, in the places lionsgate thinks it'll do the worst.
cantbetamed 4th-May-2012 09:37 pm (UTC)
Has anyone from here seen it yet?
colorsplashh 5th-May-2012 07:02 am (UTC)
I saw it and it was cute as fuck. I don't understand why Lionsgate has no faith in this movie?

I drove four hours away to see it and aside from me and my two friends, there were two other people in the theatre and even the people at concession were asking me wtf it was about.


talklikelions 4th-May-2012 09:40 pm (UTC)
tbh I'm not spreading the word b/c Miley has made it pretty clear she wants to be relatively detached from it. I will continue to spread the word of Miley Christ in general, however.
arianagrande 4th-May-2012 09:45 pm (UTC)
ill probably watch it when someone puts it online.
mayloveless 4th-May-2012 09:53 pm (UTC)
i wish i could see it in theaters, but i can't wait to buy it on dvd!
mayloveless 4th-May-2012 09:55 pm (UTC)
does anyone have the list of all the release dates in europe?
whyssoserious 4th-May-2012 09:56 pm (UTC)
and people thought TLS was a flop..
mayloveless 4th-May-2012 09:58 pm (UTC)
but TLS wasn't a flop...?
den772 4th-May-2012 10:23 pm (UTC)
I'm sure the cast doesn't care at this point. Honestly Miley probably just wants to move on from anything related to the movie anyway.

Saw The Avengers today though it was great. :)
watch_mex0x0 4th-May-2012 10:33 pm (UTC)
suggest a tweet from main actress = me gloating and attacking poor miley. lol
den772 4th-May-2012 10:36 pm (UTC)
IA wow can't believe what people replied with.
fineapplewine 4th-May-2012 10:55 pm (UTC)
Everyone's so thirsty for a fight tonight.

W/e, I understand why she was told to disassociate herself from this film. LOL won't take very much money in theatres, and that's not speculation, that's an actual certainty. When you know that, it only does more damage to your reputation to tie your name to a 'flop' which is why she (and Demi) have been deliberately instructed to avoid promotion etc.
She still has tweeted about it and RTs stuff about it and she really doesn't have to so w/e.

den772 4th-May-2012 11:02 pm (UTC)
Seriously lol all I see is defensive stans and nobody is even really hating on the movie or Miley.
yeezy 4th-May-2012 11:31 pm (UTC)

arianagrande 4th-May-2012 11:35 pm (UTC)
Same.
imahouseofcards 5th-May-2012 02:40 am (UTC)
Sucks I won't be able to see this but I hope it does well and at least expands to like NYC, LA, Chicago etc. but it's doubtful, guess I'll have to wait till the DVD! Also sucks bc I've literally waited so long for this lol but w/e I'm over it
watch_mex0x0 5th-May-2012 08:17 am (UTC)

mel_jayne 5th-May-2012 04:01 am (UTC)

watch_mex0x0 5th-May-2012 08:01 am (UTC)
DON'T YOU DARE ASK!!!!!!!!!!! YOU SHOULD READ EVERY SINGLE MILEY POST AND FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF LMAOOOOOOO / PSEUDOVIRUS
colorsplashh 5th-May-2012 07:04 am (UTC)
Here to say I drove four hours away to Sacramento to see this movie and it was the cutest thing of my life. 18 years old and I cried when I got to the theatre and saw the poster outside.



About damn time this movie got released.
If you can, please see it. It's not a waste of money and I thought Miley did fantastic in the film. I'm very proud of her. :)
