    It looks like a pretty big Oscar bait. I mean, WW2, trauma, Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth, the understated Japanese American cast, a  lot of hugging, crying, and close-up Oscar clips. 

    It’s opened to positive reviews at TIFF! and the trailer looks fantastic.
    Will this be a late contender? or will it be moved to next year? If it’s the latter, then I think we have a huge potential player here.

    It has yet to find a US distrib. It doesn’t seem to be one of the films immediately chased and sold at Toronto. Colin Firth has had nothing of note since  TTSS, a supporting role (Gambit long delayed, Arthur Newman did $112,000 in US) and Kidman also has underwhelmed in grosses (not quality of her work) of late (Stoker, Paperboy), so neither guarantees success. Firth also has Devil’s Knot at Toronto unsold (from Atom Egoyan).

     Looks like Harvey will be taking this one also. He’s on a spending spree.

    $2 million for the US is a low end deal. (It is a better one for producers though than Rigby, which was $3 million including UK and France, while Railway has a chance to sell to UK and France and end up with more). Still, it’s sort of a bargain basement sale for the cost of the movie, and suggests other big players dropped out early.
    Firth and Kidman of course both have a history with the company, so this makes sense.

    I thought about making thread around this movie today… Looks really intriguing. I wonder if it might be this year’s wildcard for the awards season. 

    I didn’t even realize this thing about Colin Firth’s bad luck recently. Oscar curse or did he really peak with that win?!

    I’d be shocked if it’s released this year. No room in actor/actress, Kidman already has a Weinstein entry (unless they’d dump Grace til next year and go with this).

    Would it really get released this award season? I think it’s more likely will play a major role in the next. A smarter route too, cuz this one looks good, got positive reviews, and just screams Oscars. It can be a huge player in the next one. 

    I agree that Colin Firth’s been under the radar lately. The Oscary film he was in was Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Maybe this is a comeback?

    Confirmed as Weinstein.

    DH just wrote that this, Could a Song Save Your Life & Eleanor Rigby will all be 2014 releases.
