More release date shuffles have occurred today for some Oscar possibles. The Weinstein Company has pushed back their much anticipated musical film Nine to a very limited December 18 release with a wide release coming on Christmas Day. This was expected as its previous November 25 release put it in competition with the Weinstein’s own The Road. This clears up the Thanksgiving weekend crowd, but puts Nine up against Sherlock Holmes, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Shanghai, and It’s Complicated for an extra crowded Christmas weekend.
The Weinsteins have also announced the release of their recently acquired Awards hopeful A Single Man. Tom Ford’s directorial debut will see its U.S. release in select theatres on December 11 with a gradual expansion. It will also be open in every major U.S. city on…you guessed it, Christmas Day.
You might as well just tell Santa to bring your gifts to the theatre…
