The Weinstein Company moves up the release date of ‘The Master’ to September!

They’ve also pushed back ‘Killing Them Softly’…

Yes, believe it or not…you won’t have to wait much too much longer to see Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film ‘The Master’. Originally scheduled to hit theaters during the middle of October, Variety is reporting here that The Weinstein Company now has the film opening in limited release on September 14th, with a theater expansion planned the next weekend. This is obviously exciting news, but it does come with a little caveat in that we won’t be seeing Andrew Dominik’s film ‘Killing Them Softly’ until later than expected. Hit the jump for details on when you can see that movie, but it’s nothing too bad, I assure you. You can see the date below for ‘Killing Them Softly’, and be sure to mark your calendars for ‘The Master’…

Dominik’s film didn’t get a huge change, just a move back towards where PTA’s flick originally was. The shift leaves it with a still very solid October 19th date (the same one as the previous time for ‘The Master’). I’m not sure if it’s a limited or wide release, but it’s a good one nonetheless. ‘Killing Them Softly’ looks to be a winner too, so it could be a real good year for Harvey Weinstein.
