“Flags” shufflings

More Flags of Our Fathers deck shuffling: a friend tells me Clint Eastwood‘s Iwo Jima film (Dreamamount, 10.20) was scheduled to screen in the evening in Manhattan over the last 36 to 48 hours, but then it was cancelled. (That’s on top of a few people alegedly being invited and then disinvited to see it at yesterday’s L.A. screening.) Flags screened this morning in New York at 9 ayem, and then the print flew out.

    Curiouser and curiouser …

  • Wait, I don’t get it. Flags didn’t premiere at Toronto? Then why is it still on the Oscar balloon?

    I’ve seen the “Flags” trailer a few times on TV now. It’s being sold as a rah-rah, rally-’round-the-flag piece, but from what Wells has said the movie is actually more ambivalent, right? Just wondering if that bait-and-switch is gonna make much of an impact.
