I've been wondering for quite some time what the hell was going on with Suffragette. By most accounts, signs were pointing to a late 2014 release in the U.S. Filming wrapped this spring with little expectation of a prolonged post-production process. IMDb continues to list the film as being released in the U.S. in 2014, with specific release dates for Australia on 12/26 and the U.K. on 1/16/15. The U.K. date has been particularly telling for me up to this point. If the film were indeed released on that date, it would be highly likely that a late December release would happen in order to position the film for awards consideration in the U.S.
However, this weekend I was directed to a website that now lists the U.K. release date for the film as 9/11/15. If correct, I imagine a U.S. release would accompany that date fairly closely The site also indicates that Twentieth Century Fox is the distributor of the film (Pathé in U.K.), which was news to me. Considering it's already September and there's really no official news on a distributor, no official release date in the U.S., no trailer...I don't think we'll see it this calendar year. I'm a bit disappointed because I sort of wanted this year to be a better version of her 2007, where Meryl had four films released (technically Dark Matter didn't have a non-festival release until 2008, but it was kind of special circumstance). With the barren state of the Best Actress category at this point, it seemed a good chance for Carey Mulligan as well.
I suppose it's still possible that it'll happen in 2014, and if it does, I'll do a post comparing and contrasting this year with 2007. In fact I may do that anyway and eventually add a new segment to my reimagined history, placing Suffragette in 2014.
