The movie is The Green Inferno. NYC student activists travel to Amazon to save the rainforest, meet natives. Hilarity ensues.
It was suddenly pulled from the release schedule, and was supposed to be out September 5th. It’s said the financing company doesn’t have the money for the release:

Deadline is reporting that Green Inferno, the Roth-directed film about student activists who travel from Gotham to save the Amazon rainforest only to be pursued by a cannibal tribe, has been taken off Open Road’s release calendar. The film was scheduled for wide release on September 5. We’ve been supporting the film heavily here on the site after we posted this positive review last September.
They write that this happened because financier Worldview Entertainment is balking at ex-CEO Christopher Woodrow’s commitment to provide the P&A.
This is a very important movie to showcase the joys of being a student activist who has traveled to underdeveloped countries to help indigenous people combat the effects of climate change and greedy multinational corporations.
I suggest we should petition the distributor to hold a Kickstarter to fund the release. As the incentive gift for donors, I propose an e-booklet (to save the trees) filled with info for combating the real myths about climate change.
