THREE IMTA Alumni in The Romantics at Sundance!

The Romantics premieres today with several screenings during the 2010 Sundance Film Festival! The Sundance Film Festival describes the film as: "In The Romantics, seven close friends—all members of a tight, eclectic college clique—reconvene at a deluxe seaside wedding to watch two of their own tie the knot. Lila is the golden girl preparing for her dream wedding, and Laura is Lila's maid of honor. Once college roommates, Laura and Lila have been best friends since their first meeting on campus, but Lila's groom, Tom, is the man they have long rivaled over. Promiscuity and hi-jinks abound as the drunken friends frolic in the nearby surf and revel in the nostalgic haze of their glory days."

Three IMTA alums star in the new film; Katie Holmes, Elijah Wood and Josh Duhamel! Katie plays the role of Laura, Elijah portrays Chip and Josh plays Tom in this comedy about a group of old friends at a wedding.

Josh Duhamel IMTA '97 starred in the biggest film of the summer, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. When Josh competed at IMTA, he was awarded the prestigious title of Male Model of the Year! Josh edged out fellow competitor Ashton Kutcher to win the big prize.

IMTA alum Elijah Wood's animated feature film 9 is now out on DVD! In addition to Elijah, the film features the voices of John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Christopher Plummer, Crispin Glover and Martin Landau. It's a fantasy flick and follows a group of rag dolls trying to survive a post-apocalyptic existence.

Katie competed at IMTA twice, in 1993 and 1995 . She returned a couple of years later to present awards at IMTA and debuted the first fifteen minutes of the pilot episode of Dawson's Creek.
