Wuthering

Oscilloscope Laboratories picked up North American distribution rights to Andrea Arnold's adaptation of Wuthering Heights, with plans to release the film theatrically some time in 2012 (no specific day/month given yet), followed by DVD and VOD.

The film, maybe known more for its casting of a black actor to play "Heathcliff" (portrayed by young British actors Solomon Glave, and James Howson as the adult Heathcliff), is set to make its USA premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month, screening in the Spotlight section.

Today brings word that on April 3rd, a preview screening of the film will be presented by the UCLA Graduate Students Association, at the James Bridges Theater, Melnitz Hall 1409, at UCLA.

The page on UCLA's website announcing this event doesn't provide any info on ticket prices, or whether it's a free and open to all event, or whether the filmmaker or cast will be present, so I suggest you contact them directly (HERE) if you're in the LA area and are interested in the screening.

I sent an email requesting further info, but nothing yet.

And I'd further add that if this preview screening is happening on April 3rd, it likely means that the film will be released in theaters a short time after that.

Below is the film's first released trailer, which tells me that, at the very least, regardless of how mixed the reviews have been thus far, this should be a beautiful-looking picture - one that's on my to-see list while I'm at Park City this month:
