Not so great, right? I’ll take a release date inside this calendar year for a new Coen Brothers movie over no date at all, but that December date won’t even put the film in theaters nationwide. It’s an award-qualifying run, which will lead to an expansion starting December 20. More info is below. Read More »

Terrence Malick is notorious for deleting subplots and even entire characters during the editing process, but for a director’s cut of The Tree of Life he’s going to put some of that extra footage back in.

Oh, America. We felt so great when it was announced that Edgar Wright‘s latest film, The World’s End, moved up from an October release date to August. That put it in the same month the United Kingdom was getting the film.

Well, that small victory has now been squelched as Wright announced via Twitter the third film in the Cornetto trilogy (starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike) will be released a month earlier still, July 19, in the UK. Its US release date remains August 23. A trailer should be out in the next week or two. Read More »
