the question is, when do these show in the philippines?
Weinstein Co.‘s My Week with Marilyn stars Michelle Williams as the iconic star.
SPC’s Carnage, based on Yasmina Reza’s relationship stage play The God of Carnage, stars Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly.
Focus Features’ Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Colin Firth, Gary Oldman (George Smiley), Tom Hardy, Mark Strong and Ciarán Hinds star in the adaptation of John LeCarre’s novel.
TWC’s silent film era The Artist stars Cannes best actor-winner Jean Dujardin. Academy voters will eat this one up (here are Cannes reviews). Paramount opens Martin Scorsese’s 3-D Hugo Cabret. How much will 3-D hurt that film’s playability with older Academy voters? Will Paramount screen it for the Academy in 3-D or 2-D?
And then in December things get rocking:
TWC opens Ralph Fiennes and John Logan’s Shakespearean Coriolanus, which earned advance raves in Berlin, especially for Vanessa Redgrave. Gerard Butler co-stars.
Fox Searchlight opens George Clooney starrer The Descendents, from Sideways director Alexander Payne, opposite TWC’s Meryl Streep vehicle The Iron Lady.
Sony and David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo goes wide, which means they’re seeking a big b.o. weekend. (Congrats to star Daniel Craig, who this weekend secretly married Rachel Weisz, fellow Brit and ex-partner of Darren Aronofsky, with whom she had a child.)
Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg’s Adventures of Tintin: Secret of Unicorn is another test of performance capture and 3-D’s strength. On the artier side of the equation is FilmDistrict’s Bosnian romantic war drama Land of Blood and Honey, marking Angelina Jolie’s directing debut. Also opening that weekend is Fox’s Cameron Crowe heart-tugger We Bought A Zoo, starring Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and Elle Fanning, based on Benjamin Mee’s 2009 memoir.
Disney Touchstone/DreamWorks moved Spielberg’s second movie, War Horse, from August 12 to December for obvious reasons: awards potential. “We think there’s room for a couple of holiday movies during that season,” said Stacey Snider some months back on a press call. She hopes that this “love story between a boy and his horse,” adapted by Lee Hall and Richard Curtis from Michael Morpurgo’s novel and the subsequent West End stage hit, will play well into January. “It’s a big market at that time of year.”
