The Road's Release Pushed Back from 10/16 to 11/25

Yes, you guessed - the "genius marketers" behind The Road are opening a movie about a starving family...on Thanksgiving. That's holiday fare for you!

It looks like a very good movie. It's gotten overwhelmingly positive reviews at the Telluride and Venice Film Festivals. It's not the kind of movie that will ever be a block-buster, but it could find its audience if it's not coming out over a holiday weekend. You just have to wonder "What were they thinking?"

The Road Premieres in Venice (and, Also, Apparently, at Telluride)

The interviews have begun, the reviews are starting to come out, and initial word on The Road is mostly positive.

I'm keeping a link list of reviews at: Reviews Page at The Road News and Rumors.

It'll hit Pittsburgh six weeks from tomorrow, on October 16.
