Weightless Has A Running Time

By May 24, 2016Nat-news

 
After Knight of Cups, Terrence Malick and Natalie collaborated straight away on a second film. It had a naming identity crisis but finally landed on Weightless. Based on the shoot, it seemed that Natalie was going to be much more of a central character and, with a story set in and around the Austin music scene, it sounded the more promising of the two films.

We may find out later this year as the British Film Classification Board have just posted that the film is 145 minutes and has been given a 15 rating for “infrequent strong sex”. That will probably translate into an R rating in the U.S.

Here’s hoping that a trailer follows along sooner rather than later.

    Hate each film where Natalie has sex…

  • Nina says:

    Does the order of the cast have any relation to how big the roles are? Natalie is listed somewhere in the middle but I hope she has an important part. The pictures from filming made her character look interesting. I hope she’s not just another pretty woman like some of the female cast in Knight of Cups.

    • Tyler says:

      I hope so too. That film was terrible and not only because Natalie appeared for just 10 minutes

    It is interesting what say in “One Big Soul” on the UK release date…

    What we know: legally, StudioCanal UK is really free to release WEIGHTLESS on June 24, if the company wishes.
    The legal contractual obligations prevented them to release the film before January 2016, if Broad Green had not done it before.
    But since January 2016, most distributors are free to release the film without holding it until the US distributor decides.
    These are the same reasons why StudioCanal Germany and others were free to release KNIGHT OF CUPS from September 2015.
    Of course, the spirit of the law, and the moral contract would advise them to wait for the festival premiere. But this is only a moral contract.
    If StudioCanal UK really intends to release it next month, there will be long phone calls and discussions and shows of strength behind the scenes, but StudioCanal is probably free of any legal threat. That is going to be only the work of diplomacy.

      Yeah, interesting. Another reason not to put it out yet is there is no awareness for the film. Trailer and some festival play will help in that regard.

  • Belerofonte says:

    Studio Canal confirms that the film will not release until 2017:

    This does not mean that we can not see in some of the fall festivals….

    No one is shocked that Natalie and Michael Fassbender are listed after Haley Bennett? I never expected that.

  • Aurore says:

    I think the strategy will definitely to be at the festival first either in Venise or Toronto at least
