Bullhead

Drafthouse Films has scheduled a limited release of "Bullhead," nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.  The underdog foreign language pick will open in Los Angeles, New York, and Austin on February 17.

The Belgian "Bullhead" is the debut of writer and director Michael R. Roskam, who Variety named as one of 2011's "10 Directors to Watch."  His film is looks at the Belgian bovine hormone mafia. Jack Vanmarsenille (Matthias Schoenaerts) is a domineering cattle farmer. Pumped up on steroids and hormones, the rancher finds himself tied into a shady deal with a mafioso meat trader. Schoenaerts gained nearly 60 pounds of muscle for the film. He will next headline in Jacques Audiard's "Rust and Bone" opposite Marion Cottilard.

"Bullhead" premiered in the US at the Fantastic Fest, where it won "Best Picture" in the AMD/Dell Next Wave Competition. So far, it has garnered 25 awards including "Best Actor" at Palms Springs IFF 2012 to Schoenaerts, as well as the "New Auteurs Audience Award" and "New Auteurs Critic's Prize For Best Actor" at the 2011 AFI festival.

The film will open in Los Angeles, New York, and Austin on February 17.  Drafthouse has plans to expand the film to new markets following this initial limited release.
