The release dates for Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, some big HBO series, and another fucking Justin Bieber movie have been revealed. Let's take a look.
Though Anderson's latest was once being talked about as a possible awards contender for this year, Fox Searchlight has now confirmed that that's not happening. The Grand Budapest Hotel won't be hitting theaters until March 7, higher-brow counter-programming to 300: Rise of an Empire and the CGI re-envisioning of Mr. Peabody and Sherman. It will be a big weekend for things looking quite unnatural.
The intense-looking Matthew McConaughey-Woody Harrelson crime drama True Detective and the new season of Girls are sure to be bit hits with audiences looking to explore the relationships between young women and/or the stars of Edtv. Those shows are both heading to HBO on Sunday, January 12, while the following Sunday will premiere Looking, a gay-themed dramedy set in San Francisco, where HBO has heard there are some gay dudes.
Finally: Merry Christmas! You're getting more Justin Bieber. Open Road Films has set a Christmas Day release for Believe, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never director Jon M. Chu's residual documentary exploration of Canada's singing prince. Shouldn't it be "Belieb," though? I don't think I'm kidding.
