The narrative, based on journalist (and former New York Times magazine writer) Michael Finkel’s memoir True Story: Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa, centers on Finkel’s (Jonah Hill) relationship with accused killer Christian Longo (James Franco).

While Finkel suffered embarrassment after being accused of falsifying elements of an investigative article, his life is thrown for a deeper loop after Longo finds his way into Finkel’s already precarious universe.

Of Mice & Men Come “Full Circle” With ‘Restoring Force’ In February

Metalcore band Of Mice & Men, who earlier this year released their album Restoring Force, have added three new songs and an acoustic version of their single “Feels Like Forever” for Restoring Force: Full Circle. Coming out February 24, Restoring Force: Full Circle comes in a deluxe double-disc, foil stamped digipack.

The three songs (“Broken Generation,” “Never Giving Up,” “Something To Hide”) and the acoustic take on “Feels Like Forever” were recorded during the fall in Southern California with producer David Bendeth (Paramore, Bring Me The Horizon).

Restoring Force continued the band’s growing momentum, as it peaked at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and scored #1 spots on the Billboard Top Independent and Top Rock Album Charts.

The group’s arena tour with Linkin Park begins January 15 at the Amway Center (Orlando, FL). In February they play three dates at the Soundwave Festival and then embark on a European tour that begins March 11 in Paris (Machine Moulin Rouge). That leg of their tour ends April 4 (Academy/Manchester, UK).
