"The Namesake" opens this Friday in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, and San Francisco. I'm pasting a list of theaters below; from my understanding, depending upon the box office success, it will be rolled out in additional cities as the weeks progress, so please tell your friends to see the film.
After a plethora of festivals and smaller regional screenings, the "The Namesake" will finally hold it's Premiere this Tuesday evening in New York. Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend because i'm still in Louisiana working on the "Harold and Kumar" sequel (i'm not allowed to leave on weekdays since it conflicts with our work schedule).
Mira and I did a short interview for NPR's "Morning Edition" (one of the programs and stations i listen to quite a bit), so look out for that in the next few days. I'm not sure when it's going to air, but i assume prior to release.
