THIS JUST IN...

Zodiac is due for release in the UK on the 20th April 2007 nationwide. My feelings about this can be summed visually with the following photo:
There is even a special UK website that doesn't work HERE. Right on!

And whilst we're on Zodiac...

Cina found a new video clip HERE. PONG, bitches! A classic 80's piece of nostaglia which I'm guessing represents some kind of time transition within the movie, despite Jake still wearing his jacket from the 70's. You don't see TDATND using such cheap tricks.

20th of freaking April - I've been gearing up to see next bloody month - not happy

ncwoman said...

Oh, you guys in the UK, I am really sorry. I'd be very unhappy about that too. I feel your pain, I really do. As a matter of fact, I'll probably have to wait a lot longer than early March to see it in this stupid town.

But regarding Number Six's post:


ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!

ncwoman said...

^^^Let me clarify the above, lest I risk getting things thrown at me...

I'm not laughing at you guys' misfortune. I'm laughing at the words of the post paired with that photograph! LLOOOOLLLLL!!!!

cina said...

I'm seriously worried by this news. Does that mean the opening date for Sweden will be pushed back from April 4 to sometime in May... or worse than that?! S.H.I.T!! :(

Or are we so lucky here in Sweden that we will get it before the UK?? It has happened before, so maybe. Maybe..! *keeps fingers crossed*

Yep, that photo captures the feeling perfectly. What a bum.

The inflatable boat the film is coming on is working 24/7 to get it there as fast as it can...

The seas are rough this time of year...What with those breaking icebergs, (global warming). Makes for one perilous journey.

Not to mention Miss Tallulah Bankhead has been eating the rations again.

cina said...

Another great clip from Zodiac here.
It's a clip with Jake and RDJ. Friggin' amazing.

penny lane said...

Sorry guys in the U.K. Join the club of those of us in for a long wait.

devilsadvocate0427 said...

Mmmmm...March 2nd. I think I love American for this reason, and this reason only.

kokodee said...

KayDee said...

ok, it's getting better and better: it was set for june 1st when the american premiere was on the 22nd of september. now that it's moved to march i think that i'll watch it here like next year...

i'm going to count to 100 backwards and take deep breaths now... 100, 99, 98....

Damn, Cina!!!! That clip was incredible!!! Eerie. RD,Jr. acts effortlessly. He is so cool! ANd watching Jake's face, he is so damned expressive, you can't just listen, you have to really watch him. He's got a something going on. He, RD,Jr. and Mark Ruffalo probably had terrific chemistry.

Anonymous said...

Look. The film should have been released in November, 06. Even Mark RUffalo afirmed that. So we waited for four months for a U.S. opening. I'm guessing that the UK and other parts of Europe will not have to wait until the end of April. I'm betting they will have their opening mid-March. On what do I base this? Nothing. But my gut tells me it will happen.

Anonymous said...

IMDB now have the UK as 20th April.

ncwoman said...

Wow. Great clip, Cina. Thanks!

I've been a fan of RDJ from way back...another under-rated actor, IMO.

Anybody recognize the sound of Pong in the background? Anybody around here besides me who even REMEMBERS Pong?? LOL

Katie said...

I've already seen Zodiac advertised in a magazine for Vue Cinemas in the UK with the date of 16 March.

BUT going on the history of this movie, I wouldn't be surprised if it releases in the UK on 20 October 2009!!!

So far I've seen no other revised date anywhere else, but...

Rightly or wrongly, I am so mad at Fincher and I feel sorry for Jake for having to put up with him for 115 days of filming hell.

As you can tell I'm FUMING!!

I know I'm fortunate to be going to the US to see the film but I feel for eevryone having to put up with this rubbish. It's changed for the UK today, it can change for anyone else tomorrow.

Katie said...

By the way. Thanks for the pic No 6 - Lureen's wearing my coat - I bought it in the auction!

KayDee said...

did ppl really dress like that of their own free will? they look like smth out of a circus. fashion can make even beautiful ppl look like clowns.

veeveevee said...

Katie - you have Lureen's coat!

Now I'm getting really jealous of you - Lureen's coat and being so close as to smell The Sex!!!

Anonymous said...

You HAVE Lureen's coat? You brought it from that ebay auction?

Number Six said...

I got the info from here:

http://www.launchingfilms.com/

The Film Distributers Assoc so I thought it was legit.

jng said...

dudes, that photo is hilarious LOL

cina said...

Funny you should mention that ncwoman! I was actually wondering what the hell that blipping noice in the background was!! Obviously, I don't remember Pong. What was it???

And I too am an long-time fan of RDJ. I had a huge crush on him after I saw him in Less Than Zero waaay back, and I've followed his career ever since. He's an amazingly talented actor! And he and Jake seem to have great chemistry.

damaris said...

Yes!!! I remember Pong, and definitely recognized the sound. lol (Plenty old enough to remember) lol

Good Lord, I can't wait to see this movie. More than a year since last seeing Jake on the big screen is just much too long. ;)

I've already got it planned out to stop working and sneak away at lunchtime they day it opens. hehehe Oh, I'm so terrible.
Gotta have my fix. ;)

There's always the bootleg Chinese version of Zodiac....except it's all dubbed in Mandarin Chinese?
Sort of a Woody Allen "What's Up, Tiger Lily?"but in reverse effect.

Number Six said...

PONG rules! You can play it here (along with Frogger, which also rules):

Play PONG

The thing I get worried about is after Zodiac. It will be next year before Rendition is opened. November,'08. I SINCERELY hope Jake signs on for another picture...or two this summer. He should wrap Rendition by May? So hopefully he'll have something else to announce soon!!!! I think the reason he was in LA so much before he left for Morocco is perhaps he was meeting with people, or auditioning, or what not. And I, too believe that Zodiac will open before the end of March in the UK. I think we must let KARMA intervene. It is time, once again to chant: "March 16th, Zodiac...March 16th, Zodiac..."
The other thing we can do. Don't laugh. Is to contact WArner BRos. who is distributing Zodiac in Europe...and make sure you have the right phone number to speak to the right department or division, and to the right person or their assistant even if you have to be transferred 60 times. And Call them and insist they open it earlier than April!!!!!

cina said...

I'm not so sure it's November 8, actually I think it's November this year. At least I think that's what I've heard.

cina said...

^^^ That should be November 2008....

Katie said...

The release date for Rendition is currently 30 November 2007 for the US and 18 January 2008 for the UK. That's according to IMDB.

However, I've heard film release dates can slip...

Anonymous said...

Man is it just me or did Jake seem really sure that cell phones was the way to catch the Zodiac?

Gues sI'll just have to wait to see the movie - like FOREVER

heddaparsons said...

Zodiac is opening in the UK in April??? Geez. I'm so sorry guys, this picture has been pushed back so many time here and elsewhere, but from the early reviews, it may be worth the wait.

PS: PONG!!!!

S4M985 said...

When someone asked Jake about his new movie and when it will be released at the Baftas didnt he say 'i dunno, next year sometime'?? so somehow i think rendition will be released next year..

Andi just checked the aussie site, its still april 19 for us.. I hope that info is wrong and u guys get it earlier, i know how u poms feel orgininally here it was supposed to be feb 2, then march 2 and now april! Im thinking realistically... october! haha

anonymous blonde said...

April 20th for the Zodiac opening in the U.K.? That hardly seems fair...... I mean, Jake has come to the BAFTA's 2 years running, and has made a point of crediting you Brits for embracing him first. I'm serious....... it's depressing!
Hopefully, it really is due to some sort of scheduling conflict and he will show up for the London premiere.

PONG was the forerunner of the modern video game. Arcade versions came out in 1970 or 1971, and home versions (the ones I remember) were released in the mid-70's.

Compared to the graphics of today's video games, PONG is really tame, some would say boring. But it can be very hypnotic. My ex husband owned the home version when we met in 1980, and we spent many hours playing that game whilst we was courtin'...

Here's a Wikipedia article about it. Sorry, I don't know how to make it a clickable url in the comments section of the blog...

God, Jake is so adorable. He's too young to remember what life was like without cell phones, fax machines, the Internet...but what makes him think that modern electronics could have solved an unsolved crime from yesteryear? Now DNA, on the other hand...that' a different kettle of fish altogether.

Whilst I DO remember what life was like without all those little goodies, I admit that life's a hell of a lot more fun with contemporary technology (most of the time).

Looking at that killer picture of Jack Lureen and Randall, made me think of the old TV series, DALLAS.

cina said...

^^ You're spot on!! LMAO!!

Muffin said...

ncwoman, I think he was referring to the cross-servicing of information relating to the ciphers. If the technology we have today had been available back in the 70s then the information relating to clues contained in the ciphers could have been passed around and shared more efficiently. Of course DNA evidence would be the most likely way of catching the guy these days but I think that Zodiac the movie concentrates on the ciphers are not physical evidence.

Muffin said...

that should say"...and not physical evidence".

Anonymous said...

OT..but NOT: I have the most horrible headache and it's gonna get worse! I've been suffering from terrible withdrawal..literally banging my head against he walls!!! We had BAFTAs and videos of Zodiac...and now the let down...Jakeless. I know. Next week he'll do the talk shows. And I'll be glued to my TV. And then I'll watch the clips over and over...and then Zodiac will come out. I'll probably see it a zillion times. And then....Jakelessness will set in for real. Look. There's gotta be somebody in Morocco....and if Morocco is too impractical, I just know we have someone in South Africa!!!! There's gotta be someone who can keep us posted. This is horrible.

Katie said...

24 hours later I'm looking on the bright side and hoping this is a tactical move to optimise publicity for the film - to release it in the UK when it fits in with Jake's shooting schedule so that he can come back to London and do another red carpet.

Anonymous said...

Look. If he does come to London in April for Zodiac, chances are he will have finished Rendition. So the task for JW agents based in London: KEEP HIM THERE!!!!!

cina said...

^^ Then please put him in a box and send him to Sweden ok? We've got to share you know.
