It was announced yesterday that Twelve Years a Slave will be in theaters on the Oscar bait date of December 27th. That's the good news. The bad news is that Fox Searchlight is the studio releasing it. Remember them? They "managed" the "marketing" of Shame. Uh huh. Yeah, THEM. They even admitted they fucked up the Oscar campaign and promotion for that film. Well, maybe things will be easier for them to manage. TYAS will definitely get an R rating, and since they have the experience with marketing an R film instead of an NC17 film, maybe these mofos will have better luck this time. Then again... does George Clooney have an Oscar baity film coming out at the same time with Fox Searchlight? We don't want Fox being confused with which film to promote heavily now do we? Expect TYAS to be a major player at Cannes, Venice, and my beloved Toronto!
The Counselor will be released November 15th, and I speculate that Frank will come out in September or October, so the Fall is going to be Fassy Season!
