TWC will distribute Allen’s “Barcelona”

The Weinstein Company will distribute Woody Allen‘s atrociously-titled Vicky Cristina Barcelona sometime later this year. Figure late summer/early fall. The romantic roundelay costars Javier Bardem, Patricia Clarkson, Penelope Cruz, Kevin Dunn, Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Messina.
In the Jan. 14 issue of Maclean’s, the Canadian news magazine, Allen says this the following during a three-page interview: “I finished a film in Barcelona this summer that’s a romance. It’s serious in the sense of like Hannah and Her Sisters, [but] it’s not heavy at all, there’s no killing or life-and-death issues in it. It’s a relationship picture.”

    I don’t think the title is that bad. I’ll take a title like Vicky Cristina Barcelona, which I’ll remember, over something with a generic title like “Untraceable”, “Fracture”, “Collateral”, “Frailty”, etc.

  2. It’s also better than “Vicky & Cristina in Barcelona”, “Vicky & Cristina Go To Barcelona”, “Summer in Barcelona”, “Vicky’s Emporium & Cristina’s Imaginarium” or any other similar title.
    I like it, it’s different.

  3. So that’s why the Weinsteins picked up Cassandra’s Dream – because they wanted to nab Vicky Cristina Barcelona. That’s why Harvey paid Woody a visit while he was shooting VCB.
    And who cares about the title? To many filmgoers this will be “the one where Scarlett and Penelope get it on in Spain”.

  4. Did Cassandra’s Dream even come out?? We ARE talking about Academy Award winner Woody Allen yes? One movie a year, Mr. Allen? I think that this one year consecutive record is overshadowing substance no?

  5. WE GET IT JEFF… you don’t like the title. Move along.
    There have been 2 films that have played in the Clearview near me for one week only in the past year. Assasination Of Jesse James and Cassandra’s Dream, both of which I’m sorry I missed.

  6. Allen’s often been maladroit with his titles: Interiors, Stardust Memories, A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy, Hannah and Her Sisters, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Deconstructing Harry, and a lot of the recent ones have always sounded awkward or heavy-handed to me.

  7. The title is nowhere near as bad as “The Assasination of Jesse… Coudn’t be Assed Typing it All”.
    A great movie, but the title has sounded way over the top all along.
