No Tree in 09?

10.15.2009

Another movie of interest was pushed back today, Terrence Malick's TREE OF LIFE.

It was originally thought that TREE would be released by Christmas but will have to wait. Bob Burney, chief of the film's distributor Apparition said this about the year end opening, “Wishful. It’s definitely not going to come out this year.”

What might be even more disappointing for the film is that the push back takes it out of contention for the 2009 Oscars. It certainly would have been nominated. The film has two amazing actors: Brad Pitt and Sean Penn. Plus a heartfelt story about the loss of a son's innocence and the struggle to come to grips with it into adulthood. This is Malick's fifth film in the span of 35 years which may have to do with him being a bit of a perfectionist. The director shot the film in 2008 in Austin, Texas and spent more than the past year in the editing room. Needless to say, he's not in much of a hurry.

TREE was also potentially going to play at Sundance but with the push back is more likely to play at Cannes in May. As for an exact date on the movies release all Burney could say was, “I can’t tell you when it will come out.” Although this is sort of a bummer, I'd rather Malick take a million years trying to perfect it than just put some shitty drama out there.

Extra Tidbit: George Clooney joked yesterday about adopting some of Brad Pitt's kids. I say go ahead, he's got a few to spare.

Disappointed but not surprised

While I would have liked to see Tree of Life this fall, I'm not surprised that it's been pushed back to next year. I often thought that December 2009 was too optimistic, given how long Malick likes to take when editing his films, and in this [link] was right.

Damn It

With the exception of Zombieland any movie worth a damn has, for some reason, got to be pushed back.

Hopefully it's better than The New World...what a let down that film was. For such a "perfectionist" he sure didn't bother perfecting that one.

The New World is a cinematic revelation pal. Open Your Eyes.

The New World is certainly not for everybody. I felt it was a pretty good film, but I also felt that no matter how you looked at it, it wasn't on the same level as most of Mallick's other work.

Damn. I was kinda expecting it though seeing as we hadn't got a trailer or anything yet.

Still can't wait to see this movie.

Darn

At least now we have another reason to hope for 2010 being a great movie year.

Has it just been officially pushed back today ? Cause I thought it'd been obvious for quite a while this film wasnt coming out this year. Anyhow. I cant wait to see it. Pitt has been working with great directors lately. Coens, Fincher, Tarantino, Malick. I hope he works with Scorsese some day.
