A bunch of new release dates have been changed, set, or announced today. While all of the changes will be made to our Release Schedule, I wanted to point them out today, as there are a few films here that I know a lot of people are looking forward to seeing. First up, The Weinstein Company has set John Hillcoat's The Road for release on November 25th. Also opening on that same date is Richard Linklater's Me and Orson Welles, which premiered at TIFF last year and was just picked up by Freestyle Releasing. Michael Moore's new doc Capitalism: A Love Story also got pushed to October 2nd. More updates below.
One highly anticipated release is for the upcoming horror flick Paranormal Activity, which I just caught at Telluride (and it scared the living crap out of me). Paramount has set a limited opening for that film on September 25th which expansions depending on its success (so tell everyone to go see it if you want to see it). Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox will hit limited theaters on November 13th before opening wide on November 25th in time for Thanksgiving. Jason Reitman's new film Up in the Air has currently been set for release on December 4th, but we've heard it may open very limited a bit earlier in late November.
As always, you can find a complete Release Schedule for both 2009 and 2010 at the links provided. We always try to keep that as up-to-date as possible with the latest posters and latest dates, so hit those up!
