"You're in love with a fantasy." Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris starring Owen Wilson, which already became the highest grossing Woody Allen film in over 25 years, is returning to theaters in wide release next week. The film originally opened on May 20th after premiering at the Cannes Film Festival (that's where I first saw it) and has slowly been opening in art house theaters nationwide. Sony Pictures Classics announced that they're re-releasing it on Friday, August 26th, in wide release, so that anyone who hasn't seen it yet can finally catch up with it. If I can make the suggestion, definitely see this if you haven't yet, it's very good.
Midnight in Paris, which also features Rachel McAdams, Michael Sheen, Nina Arianda, Marion Cotillard, Alison Pill, Tom Hiddleston Kathy Bates, Léa Seydoux and Adrien Brody, has already earned nearly $50 million at the domestic box office. Impressive for a Woody Allen indie, as his last few haven't been big hits. If you haven't heard from someone else about how good Midnight in Paris is, our own Cate wrote a glowing review of it, too. It's just a fun cinematic adventure to go on, one of Allen's best in years, worth catching! "We encourage you to help spread this exciting news as we discover audiences are falling in love with and visiting Paris again, and again, and again, and again..." I've even gone to see it a second time! Have you?
