Sometimes, in the world of film, some stories tend to get swept under the rug, no matter the director, cast, or project involved. Here are a few of those stories:
First up, The Film Stage is reporting (based on a reveal by the Classifications And Rating Administration) that director Terrence Malick’s upcoming film, a once untitled romance drama has not only found a title, but it’s even nabbed a rating. Now known as To The Wonder, the film will be rated R for ‘some sexuality/nudity.’
The film stars Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko and Rachel McAdams, and follows a man who falls for a woman while in Paris, only to marry her when he returns home to Oklahoma, and ultimately fall for a past lover upon the disintegration of his new relationship. Personally, as an obvious fan of Malick as a filmmaker, and this cast in particular, I can’t wait for this sucker. This should see the light of day relatively soon, at least in the grand scheme of Malick’s history as a perfectionist and a long worker, so hopefully we’ll have more on this soon. It doesn’t have domestic distribution yet, but footage has screened for buyers, so expect that to chance rather quickly.
And finally, in other news surrounding hotly anticipated films, Alfonso Cuaron’s long awaited sci-fi epic Gravity has been shifted from November of this year to a yet to be announced date in 2013. This is a huge blow for fans of both the genre and the director, as this has been one of the most talked about films in the film world since it was announced a couple years back. Hopefully this is the final shift of release for the film, as frankly, this Sandra Bullock-starrer can’t get in front of audiences fast enough.
