Well ... it's hopeful :)

Yesterday there was another test screening and another five good reviews have been added in Letterboxd. I hope this makes Paramount decide once to release it this year:

From an article of "Hollywood Elsewhere" by Jeffrey Wells:

http://www.hollywood-elsewhere.com/2017/07/area-x-follow/

Yesterday I mentioned a recent research screening of Alex Garland‘s Annihilation. Given Paramount’s announced intention to open it in March ’18, test-screening it nine months beforehand struck me as curious. A guy who attended the screening shares the following:

“The movie is definitely finished. Maybe they’re still making adjustments to music, but the cut I saw looked and felt like a finished project. As such, it stands to reason that they’re not testing it to see if something should be changed, but rather how and when they should market and release the thing.

“If you ask me, they’re trying to figure out whether or not they should release in fall 2017 for an awards in mind or release it in March 2018 for $$$. If they release it in the fall, it’ll be well reviewed but may be marginalized at the box office against the competition, although it may pick up a few technical nominations at the Oscars (and maybe others).

“In terms of potential awards contenders, Paramount has Darren Aronofsky‘s mother! (could gather some noms unless it outright sucks), Suburbicon (written by the Coens, directed by Clooney…sure to please, right?), and Alexander Payne’s Downsizing. So they might be testing to see if moving it back to 2017 is a wise choice.

“I spoke to one of the studio reps during a bathroom break, and he told me that they’re leaning towards moving it back to a 2017 release.”

Take this with a grain…


Fingers crossed...

Oscar Isaac calls his new sci-fi film 'very weird and very beautiful':

http://ew.com/movies/2017/08/21/oscar-isaac-star-wars-annihilation/

“I’ve not had the pleasure of seeing it yet,” Isaac recently told EW, on a day off from playing the lead in Hamlet at New York’s Public Theater. “But I am certain that it will be very weird and very beautiful. You know, Alex Garland makes completely unique things, and he’s such a visionary, and I think it’s going to be a very powerful film. Maybe not for everyone — but that’s what’s amazing about working with artists like the Coens or Alex Garland, is that they follow their own creative impulses, and that’s, at the end of the day, how they make their decisions, following their own artistry and not making it all about things on the outside, and what’s going to please everyone. It’s so special to get to work with people like that.”
