PARAMOUNT ACQUIRES CHRIS ROCK'S TOP FIVE, SETS AWARDS SEASON RELEASE


After a healthy reaction from Toronto critics, Paramount has acquired Chris Rock's Top Five and has set it for a 5th of December limited release, to be followed by a wide release the weekend after. That's a ballsy play from the studio, which has three major awards players coming up, none of which have been seen. Good receipts are evidently expected from arthouse audiences on the first weekend, buoyed by strong reviews, and an equally lucrative performance from general audiences.
