This month’s Empire magazine has a feature called the “10 Movies We Want to See Right Now”. In it the Coens’ True Grit is 3rd. The small write up says nothing new but does have the UK release date listed as January 14th.

“The Coen brothers may just have made their masterpiece with this, their 14th feature and yet another hairpin-bend change of direction, which has been their trademark for their entire career.
Who knew there was such a thing but A Serious Man is opening the UK Jewish Film Festival ‘09. It is showing on 7th November at 8:30pm as part of the opening night gala at the Odeon Swiss Cottage, which sounds like a lovely place to watch a movie. However, the movie’s showing at the London Film Festival still marks it’s UK bow.
The Coen brothers’ latest movie, A Serious Man, will have it’s US premiere as the opening movie of the the inaugural edition of the Friars Club Comedy Film Festival on Sept. 24 at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City.
So, to sum up;
World Premiere – Saturday 12th September (9pm) at the Toronto International Film Festival
US Premiere – Thursday September 24th at the Friars Club Comedy Film Festival
UK Premiere – Tuesday October 25th at the Times BFI 53rd London International Film Festival
Burn After Reading sits atop the UK box office after its opening weekend with a take of £2.04m which is double that of thriller, Eagle Eye, which is in second with £1.09m. You can see the top 10 here. As Coen fans you might like to know that Igor, an animated kid’s movie with Steve Buscemi on voice duties is at number 3.
I went to see Tropic Thunder last week (I though it was great but got a bit soggy in the middle, incidentally it was co-written by one Etan Coen- not to be confused with Ethan Coen) and I was getting seated just as a Burn After Reading trailer began playing and I noticed immediately that it was different than the one I was familiar with. One scene in particular stood out which shows clearly (and graphically) what Harry (George Clooney) has been making in his basement, so if you don’t want to see this hilarious reveal till you see the movie- do not watch the trailer. You can see this trailer (Trailer 2) over at the official UK Burn After Reading site.
Great stuff- just stumbled across these…
I’m not claiming to know anything about marketing but, if I were in charge of the PR for a movie, I’d try my best to ensure that this kind of thing was sent directly to the people in a good position to show them to a lot of people at no cost, say… fan websites for example. I don’t know why I have to accidentally find them on the internet…
The official UK website for Burn After Reading is now live. It’s pretty sparse at the moment however. It contains only the UK trailer which is quite a lot different to the US ones and the character clips highlighting Chad, Harry, Linda and Osbourne. Also it confirms the UK release date of 17th October. www.burnafterreading.co.uk.
