Last time we made an update about the US release of ‘Hallam Foe‘ (re-titled ‘Mister Foe‘ for the US) the information proved to be outdated. Now, it seems there’s a new release schedule. Let’s hope it’s true! The film is scheduled to be released on September 5.
But wait, there’s a catch. According to FilmJerk.com this is a very limited release: “Exclusive to the Angelika Film Center in New York City”.
In fact, the US distributor’s website lists only these other additional play dates (it may very well be that the film will only be screened once on each day):
October 10: Gainesville, FL: Hippodrome – Gainesville
October 22: Wilkes-Barre, PA: FM Kirby Center for Performing Arts
Else, there’s news that the film’s soundtrack will be released in the US on September 9. You might remember that ‘Hallam Foe‘ received a Silver Bear award for Best Music In A Film at the Berlin Film Festival (2007).
Here some updates on Sophia’s current movie productions:
Latest news for ‘Hallam Foe‘ is that the film got a limited release in US theatres last Friday, June 6. Remember, the film is playing under the new title ‘Mister Foe‘. I don’t know in what cities the film is actually playing so if anyone has any info on that it’d be greatly appreciated.
‘Outlander‘ was screened for the first time in its entirety at the film market during the Cannes Film Festival last month. Those were industry screenings so feedback is scarce. However the ever so brilliant Outlander website came across a promising short review by Fangoria:
Unashamedly crowd-pleasing is Howard McCain’s epic science-fiction/fantasy OUTLANDER, the final film seen in Cannes. Jim Caviezel is an intergalactic astronaut who crashes his spaceship in 700 A.D. Norway and unleashes a giant alien creature on the local Viking population. Big, glossy and hugely enjoyable, it commingles fun adventure cliches with wildly unhistoric abandon, all acted with solid conviction by Caviezel, John Hurt, Perlman and Sophia Myles. There’s gore aplenty, the thrills are nonstop and the neon-etched CGI monster is pretty damn good too.
The film seems to have a definite release date in France (
July 30 pushed back to August 15) and I sure hope we’ll soon get a trailer!
Various places have reported that Sophia Myles is busy shooting a new movie called ‘Buddha’s Little Finger‘. That is not true. The film never got the greenlight as long as Sophia was attached (which was months before she got the part in ‘Moonlight‘). Should it really be in production now – as the IMDb is reporting – it is without Sophia.
It’s official: DigitalSpy is reporting that UK channel Living will be airing ‘Moonlight’ as of February 19 at 10 pm.
Earlier this month, ‘Hallam Foe’ was shown as ‘Mister Foe’ at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. It is supposed to get a theatrical release in the US this March.
‘Hallam Foe’ opens in UK theatres today – so please go out and see it!
And I found this lovely interview with Sophia Myles on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s a real must-see. Sophia talks ‘Hallam Foe’, Edinburgh, ‘Outlander’ and ‘Extras’. Also, since that interview was recorded during the general ‘Hallam Foe’ UK press tour – which I believe took place early June – Sophia obviously didn’t know she’d be doing ‘Moonlight’ next when asked about her upcoming projects.
