Update: I spoke this morning with COLT Studio Marketing and Project Coordinator Kristofer Weston and he confirmed the all-male skin clips used in the indie flick The Kids Are All Right indeed came from their company (scroll down to the next story or click the link below). “The [filmmakers] contacted us over a year ago asking for some vintage motorcycle porn from COLT. We were very happy to oblige and sent them many movies to choose from,” Mr. Weston told me. “They sent us passes to the screening a month ago and we were thrilled to see that the COLT clips were used very early on in the movie and one of the funniest scenes Iâ€™ve seen in quite some time. At the screening in San Francisco, [costar] Annette Bening and director Lisa Cholodenko answered questions at the end and touched on the subject of the biker porn the lesbian characters got off on and how much fun it was sifting through the footage to find the clips they needed. It really is one of the best movies I have seen all year. The studio was also kind enough to give us full screen credit for the COLT movies at the end.” And by the by, The Kids Are All Right premiered this past Friday â€” via Focus Features â€” and enjoyed a superb opening weekend, despite playing on just seven screens. This bodes well for the film’s long-term playability. Some prognosticators are even talking Oscar for Ms. Bening and costar Julianne Moore.
