The Wackness Opening - Nationwide Release Schedule

This article on The Wackness today achieves dual objectives: feature a video clip of the opening scene from the film and also list Sony's nationwide release plan for those wondering when and where they'll be able to see this indie gem. The Wackness finally hit theaters in New York and Los Angeles this weekend and will be opening wider soon, but it needs some additional attention. The film has been on my mind recently because whenever I think of great summer flicks, it's what I think of first. It is the quintessential summer film and this year's best indie gem to kick back with and enjoy and that's an amazing testament to the talents of director Jonathan Levine. Without any further ado, check out the opening scene and read on to find out when and where The Wackness will be showing!
Watch the opening scene from The Wackness:
Although the film officially arrived in theaters yesterday, no official box office stats have arrived just yet. Fantasy Moguls is still predicting $5 million for its opening weekend - let's hope that's true! You can also already buy the soundtrack on iTunes, which features an excellent selection of great 90's hip hop songs from Nas, Notorious B.I.G., Biz Markie, Chef Raekwon, A Tribe Called Quest, and many more. Although The Wackness is this year's quintessential summer film, I'm just hoping that moviegoers out there pick up on it and make it as big of a success as it deserves. If it's playing near you, please give it a chance!
As always, you can go back and watch this red band trailer or any of the other teaser trailers for the film. I've seen The Wackness a few times since its debut at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and it's truly one of the best indie films you'll see in a longtime. I don't want to call it this year's Juno, but if I have to reference something, The Wackness has the potential to become as beloved as Juno. If you've been anxious to check it out but don't live in New York or LA, here is Sony's tentative release schedule.
Raleigh / Durham / Chapel Hill
Miami / Ft. Lauderdale / West Palm
Salt Lake City
