New release date for The Light Between Oceans
It looks like Disney wants to capitalize off of the Oscar nominations from both Michael Fassbender and his co-star, Alicia Vikander, by releasing their movie, The Light Between Oceans, on September 2, 2016. Previously announced dates were for the UK only which will have the film debut on screens in January 2017. I was hoping that the US release would be weeks or months earlier, and it has been confirmed now. I have not read the book by M. L. Stedman, it's not normally my cup of tea. But because of Michael being in the film adaptation, I'm more inclined to read it now.
In other news, the British Academy Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) are this Sunday, on Valentine's Day. Will the Brits be more warm towards Michael? I don't know, they have yet to truly recognize his talent as they are sadly so eager to mimic the Oscars. I think Michael will attend due to logistics, so stay tuned.
