OFFICIAL: "Inherent Vice" To Have World Premiere At NYFF

Mere days after rumors started swirling, Variety is reporting that Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice will in fact have its world premiere on October 4th, at the 52nd annual New York Film Festival, as the fest's centerpiece gala.

UPDATE: As Timothy pointed out in our comments, festival director Kent Jones said in this article that Inherent Vice as “a journey through the past, bringing the texture of the early ‘70s SoCal counterculture back to full-blown life. It’s a wildly funny, deeply soulful, richly detailed, and altogether stunning movie.” 

You might want to start thinking about booking flights and hotels.

IV (theatrical premiere): 146 days
IV (world premiere): 77 days

  2. If I had to bet, I'd say that NYFF will not be the first time IV is seen by a mass audience. Venice was technically the "world premiere" of The Master, but it had been circulating with secret shows and fundraising events for a whole month by that point. Hopefully they do something cool and sneak it in unannounced at Telluride ala TWBB at Fantastic Fest '07. Besides, Colorado deserves the privilege these days given the content of this story. :)

  3. I wonder if we can expect a teaser/trailer by, or around, then.

    1. Should be much sooner than that. I'm still hopeful we get a teaser by the end of July and I'd be surprised if August comes and goes without a trailer.

    2. The end of July is creeping close, and for some reason, I doubt we'll have anything more than we currently have. August, maybe...

  5. Also just wanted to post some info that someone posted on Twitter. PT Anderson has a page on Criterion now. This happened about two months ago for David Lynch and then a month later Eraserhead was announced. This was a recent addition and probably means we will be getting Punch Drunk Love on Criterion in December http://www.criterion.com/people/119569-paul-thomas-anderson

  7. Johnny Greenwood talks PTA in the SUNDAY TIMES:

    Some slightly interesting bits about their process:

    The duo's second collaboration - The Master - is even stranger. "Paul just has his music very loud in his films," Greenwood says. "It's a dream job for a composer. I was sending him music that was too long, and he was extending the scenes to fit the music. Which is insanity."

    Next year, Inherent Vice - the third film this quietly eccentric duo have made - hits cinemas. How does it work? "Back and forth for months," Greenwood says. He misses it when they don't work together. "I was sending him this 1960s pop thing I did, because the film is set then, asking, 'Is this of any use?' Then I flood him with different approaches until we find the right one."

  8. When will tickets be available for purchase? And how much will they cost? Can anyone guess?

  9. According to FilmLinc, tickets go on sale to the general public at 12 Noon, September 7. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I have read that since this is the Centerpiece of the festival, that the screening can only be attended by 'invitation only'. I certainly hope not because I'm already anxious to book my flight and hotel.

  10. Ok, I just heard back from FilmLinc and they confirmed that it will not be 'invitation only' that it is open to the general public, however there is a maximum 2 ticket purchase limit.

  11. Hey that Kristopher Tapley fella wrote a much more elaborative piece on a variety of reactions he has heard about VICE. Lots of interesting bits.

  12. Whats the chances of seeing PTA or Joaquin at the premiere? Anyone know?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I would say a good chance for PTA, but as usual, Joaquin is very unpredictable so I think if he does show it will be a pleasant surprise. I hope they hold a Q&A too!
