If you were looking forward to getting your gangster fix this October with the release of Andrew Dominik's Killing Them Softly, you will have to now contain your excitement for just a few more weeks, as Deadline.com announced that the release date has moved to November 30th. This is the second time they have changed the date on us, and it has a lot of people scratching their heads. Typically the first weekend in December is seen as the black sheep of opening weekends because many films that open then tend to perform poorly at the box office, for instance last years biggest release was Steve McQueen's Shame which only opened in 10 theaters. When asked about the move, Harvey Weinstein said he hopes that this will give the film an upper hand by seizing a great opportunity without competition. He said quote "it is a very rare event to look at a weekend where your movie could open as the only wide release picture"
Killing Them Softly, which stars Brad Pitt, is expected to do well no matter when it opens, as it received a lot of great reviews in Cannes, and since it will be amidst the busiest part of Oscar season, it can only help Pitt if he is looking for a nod.
I have to know, do you think this film will be worth the wait? Or, will this be something you put on your rental list of maybes in 2013?
