Clerks II Movin On Up!
Friday 12 May 2006 @ 10:56 am
Clerks II is coming out EVEN EARLIER THIS SUMMER!
In a ballsy move that says **** you: were a five million dollar flick and were coming out in the ****ing middle of the summer, *****es!, Weinstein Co. has upped the Clerks II release date from August 18th to JULY 21st! The wait is now almost a month shorter, folks!
Why the move? Getting into Cannes changed everything. Since the film will have its world debut on May 26th, the Weinstein folks thought itd make more sense to get the film out there sooner, rather than later. They found a weekend in which there wasnt any flick that directly compete with the movie for an audience, and staked their claim.
Now, were opening against some pretty big flicks (Lady in the Water, Monster House), but nothing thats appealing directly to our core audience. So while well never open at number one (those two flicks alone are pretty mass-appeal movies), we stand to make a decent chunk of change and wind up somewhere in the top ten.
Good news for me, great news for anyone whos been patiently waiting for Clerks II to open.
Peep the release schedule changes here and also here.
(Note: those links list the films title as Clerks II: The Passion of the Clerks. Thats incorrect. Its still simply good ol Clerks II.)
Also, a nice (if back-handed) shout-out to this site can be found here.
Good move or not? Could be going up against some big movies, or it could be the big movie!
