apparently not everyone is getting it on the 18th.
According to www.filmreleases.com:
11 October - NY/LA
18 October - Wide
...and that's the extent of it. I'd be fairly surprised if most markets don't get it the 18th.
And, according to ptanderson.com, here is the release schedule:
May 19, 2002 - Cannes Film Festival
September 14, 2002 - Toronto Film Festival
October 5, 2002 - New York Film Festival
October 11, 2002 - New York/Los Angeles
October 18, 2002 - Rest of U.S.

Is there a trailer of this movie online? thanks
You can get the trailer here:
Certainly an enjoyable film, with a great ability to convey romance, frustration, and paranoia. It did, however, try a little too hard to be quirky sometimes; it felt rather quirky for quirkiness sake. That aside, it's certainly a much more honest film than Magnolia's pretentious attempt at being Short Cuts II: The Next Day. P.T. Anderson (and Bob Elswit) fans will certainly find something worthwhile, although I'm not quite sure if much of Sandler's fan base will find it to be of interest (even though his character actually isn't that far from the paradigmatic Sandler protagonist). As for the rest of the main cast, Emily Watson was radiant and Philip Seymour Hoffman was hysterical, but I only wish that Luis Guzman had been given some more dialogue to work with.
The one where the girl goes I love you I love you over and over again. Anyone know? ~Kevin
Are you talking about "He Needs Me"? "She Needs Me" is what she repeats over and over actually (unless you're talking about another song). It's sung by Shelley Duvall and is from Robert Altman's Popeye.
I'm trying to find out if and where this movie is playing this weekend in Minneapolis. Its very frustrating. No ads, no websites, no information!
There is remarkably little information about the release dates for this film, even here in the San Francisco area. Those who are fortunate enough to live in LA and NYC have already got the film in several theaters. As for the 18th wide release date, I doubt it. [rant]edit: it IS opening on the 18th everywhere, i stand humbly corrected [/rant]
It looks like it's opening really slowly. More theaters this weekend but by no means "wide". We're getting it the 25th, and although the following statement is likely to attract bad karma from other HTFers, I would like really like to see it again sooner. It appears that expansion may also go beyond that weekend into early November. Curious for a big studio release, although it makes some sense to me. This is an unusual film that will need to build strong word of mouth.
Here are the cities that'll have PDL playing on October 18:
New York (17 screens)
Los Angeles (20 screens)
Toronto (7 screens)
Chicago (4 screens)
Philadelphia (3 screens)
San Francisco (7 screens)
Boston (4 screens)
Washington, DC (3 screens)
Seattle (2 screens)
Dallas (2 screens)
Austin (2 screens)
Montreal (1 screen)
Vancouver, B.C. (1 screen)
I'm extremely glad I caught this gem in Toronto last weekend. I think another viewing is in order.
nowhere near florida.
Four lousy screens in Chicago!! Damn, Damn, Damn, Damn!! I live all the way in the Southwest burbs which means, I'll most likely have a long drive to see this film. Why is it, that whenever a movie comes out that doesn't fit the prototypical mold, it doesn't get a big release? I can't wait any longer though!
It's also playing in Mountain View & San Jose, suburbs of SF, so I wouldn't be surprised if many of the suburbs of the cities listed also get the film on the 18th.
Here is the release pattern: October 11: 5 theaters October 18: adds 73 theaters October 25: wider November 1: everywhere else ~Edwin
