Be Patient, Paul Thomas Anderson's 'Inherent Vice' Won't Go Into Wide Release Until 2015

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist May 15, 2014 at 11:05AM

A film we're already touting as a possible Best Picture nominee, Paul Thomas Anderson continues to keep the veil tightly closed on his forthcoming "Inherent Vice." We do know that the movie is deep in post-production, with Jonny Greenwood having already completed recording his score, but we reckon just as he did with "The Master," PTA is taking his time, showing the film to close friends and colleagues and making sure everything is just the way he wants before he shows it off to the world. And while a December 12th release is already slated, unless you're in the lucky places that get that limited release opening, you'll be waiting until 2015 to see this one.

Joaquin Phoenix, Paul Thomas Anderson Inherent Vice

A film we're already touting as a possible Best Picture nominee, Paul Thomas Anderson continues to keep the veil tightly closed on his forthcoming "Inherent Vice." We do know that the movie is deep in post-production, with Jonny Greenwood having already completed recording his score, but we reckon just as he did with "The Master," PTA is taking his time, showing the film to close friends and colleagues and making sure everything is just the way he wants before he shows it off to the world. And while a December 12th release is already slated, unless you're in the lucky places that get that limited release opening, you'll be waiting until 2015 to see this one.

Box Office Mojo reveals that Warner Bros. won't put "Inherent Vice" into nationwide expansion until January 9, 2015 where it will be up against "Taken 3" and the comedy "Kitchen Sink." The news isn't a huge shock and follows a familiar playbook for the studio. That's pretty much how they rolled out Spike Jonze's "Her," hoping that word of mouth for the quirky project would build (it didn't really, but they would've been burned if they went wide on 2,000 screens on the first weekend). And this is a familiar pattern for PTA too, with only "Magnolia" opening in wide release (and it should be noted that "The Master" never even cracked 900 screens). 

So don't be too bummed out, it's par for the course. But hopefully, PTA doesn't keep "Inherent Vice" close to the chest too long and we get to see this somewhere on the fall festival circuit.
