Steve McQueen's 'Shame' with Fassbender Opening on December 2nd
Briefly: Good news - Fox Searchlight has scheduled a limited release of Steve McQueen's controversial, but sensational, film Shame, starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan, on December 2nd this fall - right smack in the middle of the awards season. The news comes from a @FoxSearchlight tweet stating that "we're releasing Steve McQueen's SHAME in the US on December 2nd, 2011!" No word on the rating, as it's expected to receive NC-17 or go unrated, but who knows. I saw the film in Telluride and loved it, and I think Fassbender has a strong chance for an Oscar nom. We'll keep you updated on cities and release plans.
