"August: Osage County" being released November 8th

One day after my tardy reporting of November release date rumors for August: Osage County, we have a specific date set.  Several sources reported yesterday that the official release date announced by The Weinstein Company will be November 8th.  As you can see on the right of this page, I've therefore returned the countdown clock.  As I said in my last post, a specific date really only means that at least one theater in the U.S. will be playing the movie on that date.  With Oscar vehicles, that typically means New York or Los Angeles.  For August: Osage County I wouldn't be surprised if that first date included a select number of Oklahoma theaters, as the picture is set and was shot in and around Osage County.   Have I mentioned I'm excited about this movie?! 


  1. Streep may go supporting in August according to some pundit predictions. What are your thoughts?

    1. I have only seen one article suggesting that and it didn't seem like a great source. I think it's certainly a possibility, but the few promotional things they've put out have Streep top billing and make her seem like the big push in this movie. The story begins and ends with her, the original actress won a Tony in lead for the role. But yeah, it's on my radar. The thing we have to see is how good or not good Julia Roberts is. The only way Meryl gets pushed to supporting is if they really want Julia to get nominated and don't think they'll get two in lead. Talk of Roberts going supporting as well.
