Newmarket Picks Up “The Way Back”

September 3, 2010 § Leave a comment

So Peter Weir‘s highly-anticipated WWII drama has finally found distribution via Newmarket Films.  Strangely enough, though, it’s release date has been set for January 21.  Obviously this would knock it out of Oscar contention for this year (and, let’s be honest, probably next year as well), unless a late December qualifying run is announced.  Given the awards pedigree of the director, cast, and extremely Oscar-friendly material, I’d be surprised if Newmarket were to totally forego an awards campaign.
