Black Swan Scheduled Only for Limited Release This Month
Black Swan [R] is probably one of the highest anticipated limited release movies I’ve ever seen.
Film makers have a strict deadline!
A film cannot be eligible for an Academy Award the following year unless it is released in New York and Los Angeles by the end of December, according to the rules outlined by the Academy.
Therefore most highly acclaimed films that are limitedly released in December, are later widely released earlier the following year.
Scheduled for limited release Dec. 3, the drama thriller is about a long-time New York City ballet dancer who falls into a mesh of confusion and jealousy as a new rival (the black swan) crosses her path.
