Release date postponed for "August: Osage County"...again?
Ugh. The Pittsburgh Post Gazette is reporting that the release date for August: Osage County is being postponed yet again. The film was originally to be released November 7, then got moved to Christmas Day. Now it's possibly being pushed back two weeks to Friday, January 10. This was the only article I found making this claim, but it'd be pretty weird if it were just made up. There are several films being released within a week's time of Christmas, so perhaps Harvey Weinstein wants to make August's opening a bit less competitive. If I hadn't been able to see this movie at the Twin Cities Film Festival in October I would be livid at this point. I think I'll wait for further confirmation before adjusting the countdown calendar to the right.
