Javier Bardem in “Biutiful” trailer, but when will movie be released?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Oscar-nominated directors aren’t supposed to have such a difficult time securing distribution for their pictures. And yet the gifted Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu still doesn’t have a solid U.S. release date for “Biutiful,” his follow-up to the Best Picture-nominated “Babel.”

Standing in its way could be the lukewarm reception “Biutiful” received at Cannes in the spring. The film’s lead, Javier Bardem, was praised for his award-winning performance, though trusted critics were split on the movie’s overall impact. FirstShowing said it was their favorite film of the fest, while IFC’s reviewer said the director “plays up the melodramatics — with mixed results.”

When can we judge for ourselves? It’s unclear. The Playlist posted the first full, international trailer for the film this morning, but states that a release date isn’t set in stone.

“Biutiful” will start its international rollout in Spain in the fall, reach the UK in January, and play it by ear from there. I’ll bet we see it at a few major festivals. Perhaps at Toronto and New York in September. But beyond that, it will depend on critical and audience reception. In short, it’s up to you.
