The release date for Secondhand Lions in USA has changed! It is moving up by one week to 19th September! Looks like I have to adjust the countdown a bit. Cool

That's great. I was born on the 22nd, so I guess I know what I'll be doing for my birthday.

And you know what? A fan of Haley called Sara, who is a regular poster at the official Haley Joel Osment fansite, will celebrate her next birthday on September 19, which is the release date for Secondhand Lions. Cool, isn't it? Cool

Good for Sara. Yes, nation wide release would make sense since they are after that big opening box office.

I wonder why they are pushing the film out a week earlier.... while I am really glad that we can get to see Second Hand Lions a week earlier, I am wondering what other movie they are trying to get a head start against .

It's not cast in iron of course, but when a film's release date is brought forward, it is usually to avoid going head to head with another film which the distributors think will spoil the box office performance of they are releasing.

I am wondering because it is important that Second Hand Lions does well at the box office if Haley , Michael Caine and Robert Duvall have any chance at all at an award. Sad, but true. Rolling Eyes

Good observation, I have been paying attention to that too. I think the main release why they pushed it forward is because they decided to switch the mode of release from limited art-house release to nationwide release. The change in decision was due to the overwhelming demands from cinema operators. So demading that a limited release in a few cities would be impractical. With that, the week earlier could be a better week for wide-release, therefore the change in release date.

Base on my observation, the originl release date would clash with a few big movies, including The Human Stain starring Nicole Kidman and Anthony Hopkin. So a limited release would be safer that week. But the week before that would see crap movies being released that week, so a wide release would be suitable for that week. Anyway, just a cent of thought. Maybe you would like to enquire New Line Cinema on that. Wink

Not just at box office, but critic reviews as well. Anyway, I don't really care if it receive any awards or nominations or not. Just look at A.I.

It's all right in this case , pazu. There's a hyperlink on the www.whatsplaying.com index page featuring Secondhand Lions that says " Click here to visit the fan club page " which links to our Secondhand Lions section, so I guess that will help bring traffic to our site, so I'm grateful for that ! Smile
