The Master

"I wonder how he got here and what he's after." The Weinstein Company has just shifted the release dates of two of their highly anticipated upcoming movies. Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and Joaquin Phoenix, has been moved from October 12th up to September 14th. It will get a limited release on the 14th, then start expanding wider a week later, so PTA fans should definitely be ready in September to experience The Master (watch the trailer). TWC has also moved Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly to late October, essentially swapping the release dates of these two films.

The release date shift was first confirmed by Variety's Jeff Sneider on Twitter, followed up by confirmations on Awards Daily and ComingSoon. Andrew Dominik's modern crime drama Killing Them Softly, which premiered at Cannes and stars Brad Pitt, Ben Mendelsohn, James Gandolfini and Scoot McNairy, is now opening on October 19th. PTA's The Master is not set for any film festival premiere yet, but other than that, it looks like it's opening in theaters much sooner than we were expecting - seven weeks away! Which is great news, because the most recent theatrical trailer was incredible. We'll keep you updated on any more moves.

    They probably saw the trailer for CLOUD ATLAS and realized that PTA's film was going to get raped in October, so they moved it up.
  • Oh I'm so ready for this. My most anticipated film of the year. Also release Amour already!
