Looking forward to seeing the Weston clan brawl on the big screen this Christmas Day? Well, you’re out of luck. The film adaptation of Tracy Letts’ Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning drama August: Osage County will now open in L.A. and New York theaters on December 27, two days later than originally announced, according to a representative from The Weinstein Company. The rest of the country will have to wait a few weeks longer; the new movie will hit theaters nationwide on January 10, 2014.
August: Osage County’s all-star cast features Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Julianne Nicholson, Juliette Lewis, Ewan McGregor, Dermot Mulroney, Chris Cooper, Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin, Sam Shepard, Margo Martindale and Misty Upham. Set in rural Oklahoma, the movie tells the story of the dysfunctional Weston family who gathers together after the disappearance of their patriarch.
Directed by John Wells and adapted by Letts, August: Osage County recently garnered three 2013 SAG Award nominations, as well as two Golden Globe nods—one for Streep and one for Roberts. The film, however, was noticeably snubbed in the Best Picture category.
Guess we’ll have to hang out with our real families on Christmas. Sigh.
