'A Dangerous Method' & 'Carnage' Get Dates, 'My Mother's Curse' Moves From Spring To Fall 2012

It's that time again. Breakout the red pen and/or White-Out because a few more dates are gonna crowd your calendar.

This fall festival season's biggest journeyman will likely be David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method." With dates in Venice, Toronto and New York, the Canadian helmer is going to be racking up some serious frequent flier miles but the multiple festival presence means a couple of things: first, Sony Pictures Classics believe they have a big contender on their hands and second, given the subject matter, they want a few opportunities to turn audiences on (so to speak) to the slightly twisted tale. Based on Christopher Hampton‘s acclaimed 2002 play “The Talking Cure” and starring Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen, the film will center on the relationship between Carl Jung (Fassbender) and Russian-Jewish patient Sabina Spielrein (Knightley) that turns sexual, ultimately causing a rift between Jung and his mentor Sigmund Freud (Mortensen), but also catalyzes strong findings in regards to Jungian psychoanalysis. So yes, it's a little bit brainy, a little bit sexy and it should be some compelling stuff.

The film will now land on November 23rd in limited release, giving arthouse fans (at least in New York and L.A.) a Sophie's choice that weekend between 'Dangerous,' "The Artist" or "The Descendants." Either that or they'll have to give up any plans of spending time with family on that Thanksgiving weekend.

Next on the docket, Roman Polanski's "Carnage" has settled on December 16th after a couple of previously mooted but unconfirmed dates. The comedy/drama stars Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz in the New York-set story about two sets of middle-class parents who meet for dinner after their children get into a fight at school. In case you missed it over the weekend, Alexandre Desplat is actually doing the score instead of the previously announced Alberto Iglesias. We're curious about what the final tone will be (note: we haven't seen Yasmina Reza's play that it's based on) and given how hit-and-miss latter day Polanski has been, this could go either way.

Lastly, it looks like Paramount think they've got a big holiday sized hit on their hands, opting to move the forthcoming Seth Rogen/Barbra Streisand road trip comedy "My Mother's Curse" from March 30, 2012 all the way to November 2, 2012. Co-starring Adam Scott and Colin Hanks, the film will tell the rather heartwarming-sounding tale of an inventor who embarks on a road trip with his mother as he tries to sell his latest product, while he has a secret plan to reunite her with a long lost love. The film has a script from Dan Fogelman (”Cars,” “Crazy, Stupid, Love”) and, less promisingly, has Anne Fletcher (”27 Dresses,” “The Proposal”) in the director’s chair. Lots of elements in the mix here, but it seems that Paramount likes the ingredients going into the cake so far (can you tell we're hungry?). [BoxOfficeMojo]
