Well, you take both the good with the bad with this news from Variety - THE MASTER is opening limited release on September 14th, with a tiered release starting the next week. What that means is, no, it's likely not premiering at Fantastic Fest, but it also means that everyone gets to see it that much sooner.
THE MASTER and the other Weinstein Company release, KILLING THEM SOFTLY, have switched places, with KILLING THEM SOFTLY now opening October 19th. So TWC hs done a little readjusting of their fall calendar; if they want to push up DJANGO UNCHAINED that's perfectly okay with me. (Not bloody likely.)
Bums me out a little bit that Fantastic Fest won't land that prestigious premiere, but hey, we all get to see it in September, depending on where it gets released. Either way, I'm incredibly excited to see Paul Thomas Anderson's follow-up to THERE WILL BE BLOOD. It definitely says that the Weinsteins are confident in the film by pushing it up a bit, even if it is just a month.
