Recommended Posts

DreamWorks and Disney have announced that Derek Cianfrance’s The Light Between Oceans will be released wide on September 2. This is film that the town has been wondering about for some time. Some believed that the film was to be released last year, but stars Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander had films in the awards season race — with Steve Jobs and The Danish Girl, respectively. Production for The Light Between Oceans started back in September 2014 in New Zealand and Australia. However, count on The Light Between Oceans to play into the 2016-17 Oscar season race.


Based on author M.L. Stedman’s debut novel and international bestseller, The Light Between Oceans is about a lighthouse keeper and his wife who find a boat washed ashore on their remote Australian island with a dead man and a baby girl inside. They choose to bury the body and raise the child as their own, with devastating consequences. In September 2013, Dreamworks tapped Cianfrance, confident that he could deliver the tome’s epic sweep and emotional intensity. Harry Potter and Gravity vet David Heyman is producing the movie through his Heyday Films with Jeffrey Clifford. Rosie Allen shepherded the project to Heyday and is executive producing. Participant Media is also a producer.

September 2nd?   Since when is a Labor Day w/e release "Dated For Next Awards Season"


That is an odd date if they are expecting awards recognition. not exactly a weekend for movies to break out in either.
