    What happened?

    Usually O’Russell edits and finishes his movies in less than a year.

    Is it because of the allegations, or 20th Century has already West Side Story and The Last Duel as their big pushes this year, or the movie is just a mess (maybe all of the three options)???

    What do you think???

    Hildur dropping out was an indicator to me. Also, COVID probably complicated things

    They didn’t finish filming American Hustle until May 2013 and it still came out at the end of the year. I know the majority on here don’t care for DOR, but I love his films outside of Joy. I also wonder what happened here.

    Maybe he saw too much competition. But that is weird because it seems it will be EVEN more competition in everything next year

    Lol I’m glad DOR’s film dropped out of 2021. It’s probably…almost certainly…because it will be dripping with controversy. I don’t know what pushing it back will do, it’s not as if DOR will suddenly become better. Eh. Regardless.

    I’ve been thinking about the possibility of The Hand of God getting in at the expense of Macbeth or The French Dispatch. I put it on my center so I could get some good odds on it. Idk I could be off base

    I don’t know what film it will be at the expense of, but I very much believe that we’re underrating The Hand of God. It’s supposed to be Paolo Sorrentino’s Roma just like Belfast is said to be Kenneth Branagh’s Roma, and Sorrentino>>>Branagh.

    I don’t know anything about DLU more than we already know, and the same goes for the people talking to execs it seems

    Canterbury Glass or whatever it’s going to be titled is A Rainy in NY all over again.

    Interesting that some people are saying Macbeth is awful. We will see if that is true or just a false rumour. I still think Denzel could win because his role is good and Denzel is great at THAT TYPE of characters

    Rumors of Tragedy of Macbeth being rejected at Venice is quite alarming and I don’t know if I believe it but this is the type of the auteur film that requires a strong festival run to win Best Picture so I am no longer considering the film viable to win Best Picture.

    The Last Duel appearing at Venice is quite interesting even though it is out of competition, the film will be able to build buzz throughout the season and perhaps its festival premiere alludes to the film being a major player? There was a recent article that discussed The Last Duel‘s filmmaking and remarked that due to the film’s sensitive subject matter of rape, the female screenwriter, Nicole Holofcener exclusively worked on sections of that screenplay. I’m starting to think The Last Duel will be a very strong competitor in Best Picture and serve its important sociopolitical message with competence and value. But that trailer…Matt Damon and Ben Affleck will be sure to bring down the film’s quality.

    I’m predicting a The Power of the Dog and The Last Duel showdown in Best Picture.

    Am I the only one here who’s really skeptical about Macbeth? I mean, the Coens don’t have a perfect track record and only of them made this film for the first time in their careers.

    Plus those rumors about Venice…
