Oh, Twixt. I has been on board this project since late 2010 — it’s called Twixt Now and Sunrise! Val Kilmer is starring! — and was only more compelled when Francis Ford Coppola promised to show the film in a radical, free-form fashion that would create one of 2011′s most unique in-theater experiences. My faith was a bit shaken when the trailer made it all appear a little cheap and schlocky, but I kept the necessary faith. Then the reviews came in.
Now, more than halfway through 2012, we’ve only received our first word of a U.S. opening — and it isn’t much. I can’t even believe I’m typing this, but word has come in that Coppola will open Twixt at San Francisco’s Sundance Kabuki Cinemas Theater this coming Friday, August 10th; he’ll be doing a Q & A at the 4:45 and 7:15 screenings on that day. If you want to see it, air travel might be in your future. [STYD]
Does this mean an opening in some major markets — namely, New York City — is on the way? I had almost lost hope in you, Twixt, but I know you can play before my eyes some day. In 3D, please.
Also, here’s a terrible Japanese poster with Elle Fanning (via IMPAwards):
