An Education expands to 760 screens...just about enough to be seen in all major, most mid-level, and a fair amount of small cities. The film, which plays really well with audiences, was begging for this opportunity.
Crazy Heart will expand to over 500 screens...as if Bridges even needed the help. But still, a chance for the film to reach a wider audience, where it will likely thrive.
Precious is also expanding...not sure how wide.
Still waiting for Summit to announce a 1,500 screen re-release of The Hurt Locker...it's the move that, if successful, would vault the film into "Best Picture Front-Runner" status.
Keep your eyes peeled.
