Youth in Revolt Shoved into 2010


The Weinstein Company did what any self-respecting distributor would do after premiering its terrific Youth in Revolt this week to near-universal acclaim: Its genre label Dimension Films pushed the Michael Cera comedy back four months to the midwinter graveyard of Jan. 15. As usual, the TWC spin is the best part: "After the fantastic response from audiences and critics at the Toronto Film Festival, we chose Jan. 15 as the best date to release Youth in Revolt. [... T]his smart comedy [will] be great counterprogramming to some of the heavier fare at that time of year." Indeed -- like its own Hoodwinked Too, opening the same day. Brilliant. [Variety]
