Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master Moves Up To September
Congratulations, Paul Thomas Anderson fans: you're now going to get your shot to see the filmmaker's latest movie nearly a full month earlier than previously reported.
According to Variety, The Weinstein Company has decided to do a bit of shifting in their release date schedule and have officially moved The Master from its original October 12th release date to September 14th. Albeit the movie will only be in limited release, the title will be going head-to-head Disney-Pixar's 3D re-release of Finding Nemo as well as Resident Evil: Retribution. Other titles set to for limited release that week include the anticipated adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Josh Radnor's Liberal Arts, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival. There were rumors for a time that The Master would be making its debut at Fantastic Fest down in Austin, but considering the new date is a week before the start of that festival it now looks like that won't be happening.
Unfortunately, with the good news of The Master being moved up comes bad news that Andrew Dominik's next film, Killing Them Softly, will be pushed back. While the crime thriller was originally going to make it to theaters on September 21st, the trade says that it has been moved back to October 19th. The film will be competing against both Alex Cross, starring Tyler Perry and Matthew Fox, and Paranormal Activity 4.
