The limited release date of "Little Ashes" has been moved. Recent reports exposed that Regent Releasing have recently shifted the U.S. theatrical date of the drama movie, which sees "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson as Salvador Dali, from March 27 to May 8.
With the changes, "Little Ashes" won't be heading into theaters head-to-head with "Adventureland", a comedy movie starring another "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart, and "Monsters vs. Aliens", the Paramount Pictures animation voiced by Reese Witherspoon among others. And, on the new date, it is yet to have any serious competition.
Taking its title from Salvador Dali's 1927-28 painting Cenicitas, "Little Ashes" stars Robert Pattinson, Javier Beltran and Matthew McNulty. Directed by Paul Morrison, this drama film is set against the backdrop of Fascist Spain in 1922 and tells about the friendships and affairs among the three of the era's most creative young talents, Dali, Federico Garcia Lorca and Luis Bunuel.
On other release date news, "Broken Embraces", the Pedro Almodovar's drama with Penelope Cruz on the starring role, will hit limited theaters on November 6, 2009. Meanwhile, Overture Films are reported to have set F. Gary Gray's thriller starring Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx, "Law Abiding Citizen", to be released in U.S theaters on March 26, 2010.
