Roman Polanski’s “Carnage” opening New York Film Fest

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Roman Polanski’s anticipated “Carnage” has been selected as the opening night film for September’s New York Film Festival, it was announced today.

The film, based on the 2009 Tony Award-winning play “God of Carnage,” stars Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly as couples who go through difficult transitions as they meet to discuss a fight between their children on a public playground. As the evening drags on, the adults grow more immature and the conversations descend into chaos and madness.

Last year’s NYFF opener, David Fincher’s “The Social Network,” dominated the awards season en route to the Academy Awards. Sony Pictures Classics, no doubt, would like to see Polanski’s character-driven dark comedy mirror Fincher’s success. Or it’s possible the Gotham fest wants to capitalize on its proximity to Broadway, where “God of Carnage” played like gangbusters.

The New York Film Fest runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 16. As of right now, SPC plans to open “Carnage” wider on Nov. 18.
