Carnage NYC-Bound, But Whither Tinker?

So the New York Film Festival‘s crack team (Scott Foundas, Rose Kuo, Todd McCarthy, etc.) has landed Roman Polanski‘s Carnage for their opening-night attraction. Meaning there will be no Carnage at the Toronto Film Festival due to NYFF exclusivity terms, although it’ll have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival in early September.


Carnage costars Cristoph Waltz, Kate Winslet, John C. Reilly and Jodie Foster with director Roman Polanski.

I’m going to need to catch the NYFF press screening of Carnage post-Toronto, which will be sometime between 9.18 and 9.25…right? Or do I have wait until 9.27 or 9.28? I’d like to know.

My other question (which NYFF and Focus Features staffers have so far declined to answer) is whether or not Tomas Alfredson‘s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which will also preem at Venice, will be confirmed as a Toronto Film Festival attraction or as another NYFF booking down the road? It doesn’t figure that Venice has TTSS booked but not Toronto unless the NYFF has locked it down. Well…?

    I’m still getting used to that blandly reduced title. I thought “God of Carnage” was such a great title for the play, and it had a long run for a play on Broadway. I don’t think the tourists from Iowa were confused that the title would indicate a religious production–or whatever the movie marketers think makes the title bad.

    Treating good ol’ Roman like a cuddly toy. How sweet.

    CARNAGE has to be one of the few times they actually lost star power going from stage to screen. I’m already cringing at the thought of John C. Reilly doing that mouth full of marbles thing in a play like this.

    I’m sure “Carnage” is good. The NYFF doesn’t choose English-language films as opening nights unless they are first rate. (Last year’s was “The Social Network”). But I don’t see any Oscars for “Carnage” no matter how good it is. Winslet and Waltz have won too recently, Jodie can’t beat Meryl and Michelle Williams and Glenn Close this year, and Polanski has also been Oscar’d in recent memory. Plenty of possible noms, though (direction, screenplay, acting).

    Polanski’s “The Ghost Writer” keeps growing in my memory. It may have been the most underrated movie of last year.

    Will Polanski be in town then to promote it?

    It’s the insurance company ad from the end of Cedar Rapids, with Roman Polanski playing the Anne Heche role!

    I guess that puts Kate Winslet in the Ed Helms role and Christoph Waltz in the Isiah Whitlock role.

    He had to be carried because Waltz just popped him a ‘lude.
