Earlier this week I brought you the distressing news that Werner Herzog and Nic Cage’s Bad Lieutenant (trailer here, with naughty language) wouldn’t receive much of a theatrical release. Luckily, like my ejaculations, those fears have proved premature. From ThePlaylist:
We got in touch with the film’s publicists who kindly forwarded us the current rollout plan, and it looks something like this:
November 20th — NY, LA, Chicago, San Francisco, DC, Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal
November 25th — Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Diego, Seattle, Phoenix
December 4th and/or 11th — New Orleans, Austin, Atlanta, Houston, Ottawa
As this is a platform release, success in those markets will help push it out to more cities and theaters across the country, possibly even surpassing (though we doubt it) the 35-city plan that has been hinted to us from our sources in the know. So, if you are in one of the aforementioned cities, do us all a favor and buy a ticket.
Phew. After Cage fought so hard for Werner Herzog’s singing iguanas (note: I am not making any of this up), I don’t know what I’d do if i couldn’t see this on the big screen. Probably kill myself. Upon hearing the news, Nic Cage breathed a sigh of relief and wiped the sweat from his brow. It takes a handkerchief the size to two city blocks!
