As The Weinstein Company’s VOD shingle Radius-TWC is still keeping the release date undisclosed when it comes to James Gray‘s The Immigrant, France is welcoming the director with open arms, as per usual. Ahead of a release at the end of the mont there, we have a new two-minute clip from the film, featuring Joaquin Phoenix and Marion Cotillard. Taking place near the end of the first act of the film, we follow the former introducing his girls at a burlesque club he owns, leading up to the the latter dressed up as Lady Liberty.

The Immigrant is rumored for a spring 2014 release in the United States.
