New Release Dates: Son Of Rambow And Southland Tales

I've said before that Son of Rambow is one of the best movies of the year (read my review here). I feel like I've been saying this a lot lately about a bunch of movies, but as the year winds down, you start to gain perspective over the previous year. But to be honest with you, Son of Rambow isn't actually one of the best films of 2007.

Yes, I lied.

It's actually one of the best movies of 2008. Paramount Vantage has finally announced a release date for this film which took Sundance by storm. Yes, it first premiered in January 2007 (I don't know what took so long). Son of Rambow will hit theaters on May 2nd 2008.

And a bit of bad news: Richard Kelly's Southland Tales has been pushed back yet again. The good news is that it was only moved back a few days. The film will now hit theaters on Wednesday, November 14th (delayed from November 9th) in New York and LA. And the film will expand to more cities on November 16th.

"Yet another delay... but they felt this was a strategic move that would help the film," Kelly wrote on his blog. "But for those of you who want to see the film earlier there will be many advance previews scheduled for select cities and universities (Harvard, Columbia and USC screenings are being set for late October/early November)."

We'll keep you updated.
