Paul Bernon and Sam Slater, a.k.a. the men in glasses, celebrated the premiere of their movie “Results” at the Sundance Film Festival on Tuesday. Bernon and Slater — who are based in Massachusetts — run Burn Later Productions, which also made the films “Drinking Buddies” with Olivia Wilde and “Adult Beginners,” the Nick Kroll dramedy that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall. “Results,” filmed in Austin, Texas, last year, stars Cobie Smulders of “How I Met Your Mother” and Guy Pearce of “The Rover” as two personalities in the fitness business. The film was directed by Boston’s own Andrew Bujalski, who was born here and went to Harvard. Magnolia Pictures picked up world rights to “Results” last week. . . . Also at Sundance this week was Boston legend Barry Crimmins, known for launching the careers of comedians at the Ding-Ho in Cambridge. The satirist and activist is the subject of Bobcat Goldthwait’s documentary “Call Me Lucky,” which Goldthwait told his audience was partly funded by the late Robin Williams. “He gave me the initial money that started this movie in February,” Goldthwait explained at the premiere.
