Silver Linings Playbook Opening Early In 10 Cities
David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook has earned some tremendous pre-release praise as international film festivals, and there are many film nerds who are looking forward to seeing the Matthew Quick adaptation on the big screen for themselves. For everyone that fits that description and lives in or near a major city, I have some very good news.
Box Office Mojo has gotten word that Silver Linings Playbook has been moved up in 10 major markets and instead of being released on November 21st it will instead be in theaters November 16th. The Playlist says that the cities that will be getting the movie early include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Washington D.C., Miami, San Diego and Austin. Both release dates are pretty perilous, with Ang Lee's Life of Pi, Red Dawn and the animated Rise of the Guardians going at Thanksgiving and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, a nationwide expansion of Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, and Joe Wright's Anna Karenina playing next weekend, but it could be great counter-programming for those older audiences who don't care for sparkly vampires. Also, considering the movie is being distributed by The Weinstein Company the change could very well be some kind of Oscar strategy.
Silver Linings Playbook tells the story of Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper), a man who has been in a mental institution for a few years following a nervous breakdown. Once released he tries to get his wife back, and in the process attracts the attention of a similarly mentally-affected young woman (Jennifer Lawrence). The cast also includes Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, Chris Tucker, and Julia Stiles. For more about the movie, head over to our Blend Film Database.
