Could Noah be a contender?


Yes, I will speculate Oscars about everything, especially if it involves Russell Crowe and Darren Aronofsky!  When 'Noah' recieved a March release date, I was pretty sure that all Oscar hopes and dreams were dead, but the studio must have more faith than they initially did, because the film is getting push back to an unspecified summer release date.  Now, this could merely mean that they feel that the film has a great chance of bringing in the money, but it could also mean that they are confident in its quality.  While it isn't exactly a strategic Oscar move, look at the wild success that films like 'Fruitvale Station' and 'Blue Jasmine' are having.  Summer isn't yet over (almost, but still) and both Jordan and Blanchett are pretty much locked up for Oscar nominations and the films themselves are poised for considerable Oscar love.  I wonder if this spells something blessed for 'Noah' as well.

  1. Oh, I hope so. I'm actually a little worried about Fruitvale Station. The noise seems to have faded. Hopefully, it'll come back around, like Beasts of the Southern Wild.

    1. Oh, I'm sure the buzz will swing back around. It's natural for buzz to die out when other things move into the theaters, but the core fans are so passionate that I have a strong feeling we'll be hearing A LOT about 'Fruitvale Station' once the precursors start rolling around.
