I've just had a very very bad bad news!!!!
Set for the release in Italy on 27 November 2014 Lost River was then postponed.. Spring 2015 I've been told by the most serious Italian movie magazine... But my dreams did crash few moments ago.
The Italian distributor is MovieMax Italia and after emails and tweets, I had an asnwer:
at the moment we have no release dates for the movie (Lost River) in the object.
I don't know, I'm losing hopes the movie will ever be released in this Country.
Blue Valentine that is worldwide considered a masterpiece was totally ignored here...
[Just for your information: Blue Valentine was releaesd in Italy between February/March 2013 (yes, 2013! It's not a mistake) and had no promo on Tv, no promo on the theater screens. Nothing! The movie was distributed by a very small distributor in very few cinemas (maybe 15/20) across Italy. I was lucky I could watched it in Milan (that is not round the corner from where I live!).]
Anyway, let's stop talking about Italy and let me tell you a very interesting thing I've found out this morning.
On Tuesday 7th October in Paris, Showeb de rentrée 2014 was held. This is an event dedicated to cinema organized by "Le Film Francais" and the agency "Casablanca" for web journalists and bloggers. It was the opportunity for distributors to present their line-up, showing trailers and excerpts, unpublished content of upcoming releases. More or less the same thing as "Le giornate professionali del cinema di Sorrento" where Project V by Terrence Malick was presented.
This is an extract from one of the many blogs I've read:
Ryan and Nicolas playing again together. Wish I could put my hands on that clip sooner or later. Maybe it's part of the movie promo that (hopefully) will start next year.
Maybe it will be in the dvd/blu ray.
Maybe maybe maybe....
Maybe I could tweet to our beloved Nicolas and kindly asking for it
