For those of you who have been following Rotten Tomatoes’ coverage of the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, one major question may have crossed your mind: When will I get to see these movies? Well, some of them will be screened in the coming months, but for many others, their status is still up in the air.
A few of the out-of-competition films, like "The Da Vinci Code," "X-Men: The Last Stand," "Over the Hedge," and "An Inconvenient Truth," have already been released in the U.S. But many others, including Ken Loach‘s Palme D’Or winner "The Wind That Shakes the Barley," and Richard Kelly‘s critically-derided "Southland Tales," do not have American distribution dates as of yet.
Here’s a brief list of the tentative release dates for films screened at Cannes (in and out of competition):
As for some of the other notable Cannes films, Tartan will distribute "Red Road," "Princess," and "The Page Turner;" IFC will distribute "Destricted;" Magnolia Pictures will distribute "The Host;" and the Weinstein Company will distribute "Buenos Aires 1977."
In addition, Sony Pictures Classics acquired the rights for the in-production animated film "Persepolis," Picturehouse will distribute "La Vie En Rose," and Studio Canal sold distribution rights to Wong Kar-Wai‘s first English-language film, "My Blueberry Nights."
