Beasts of the Southern Wild

Briefly: Word from the internets, rather from the updates of @boxofficemojo (found via SlashFilm), is that Fox Searchlight has just set a late June 29th release date for the release of Benh Zeitlin's Beasts of the Southern Wild, the highly praised, award winning, universally loved Sundance sensation. The film stars lovable newcomer Quvenzhané Wallis as Hushpuppy, a six year-old girl striving to survive with her dad in the "the Bathtub," a community at the southern edge of Louisiana. I loved it (my Sundance review) and it won the Grand Jury prize. I don't think this is the best date to let this wonderful film explode, since it is a hard sell, but we can only hope they're getting ready to go all out with it. They've got my full support for it!

Do you think it is releasing too early? I would have thought this was an Oscar front-runner.
