Renee Zellweger/Bradley Cooper film 'Case 39' finally gets a release date

It has sat on the shelf for close to two years but finally Case 39, the horror flick from director Christian Alvart (Pandorum), will finally see the light of day. Paramount Pictures has confirmed that the film, which c0- stars Zellweger’s reported beau Bradley Cooper, will bow on October 1, 2010.

A studio source said the R-rated film had been shelved for so long because of internal management changes. Earlier this year, though, Paramount’s international arm released the film overseas to strong numbers, particularly in Spain and Mexico, where the film grossed $3 million in each territory. These numbers gave the studio confidence that a domestic release was warranted.

Check out the trailer for the film below.  It’s interesting to see what two years will do. The dating couple’s careers have almost switched places since this was filmed. Cooper’s career has certainly taken off thanks to The Hangover while Zellweger’s seems to be on pause. Case 39 centers on a social worker sent to investigate a troubled 10-year-old girl’s familial situation only to get too involved in the dark forces that surround the girl’s life.

    LOL the film’s been on torrent sites forever; watched it, it’s ok – goes in a weird direction, and Bradley’s a bit player not in it much at all….. meh, it was ok.

    My boyfriend and I downloaded it months ago! Bradley Cooper is barely in it, and he keeps his shirt on the whole time!

    It was released in Australia on November 5th 2009. it didn’t make a lick of sense, was one of the least scary movie i’ve seen in a while & god knows why Ian McShane is it!

    I’m pretty sure this movie has been collecting dust for closer to three years.

    I have been looking forward to seeing this and honestly could care less what an of you have to say. I mean, most of you are seriously gonna just say “it sucks, don’t bother”?

    Unless you give actual reasoning, like plot holes, bad acting, bad effects, etc. don’t just say it sucks. You suck at giving an opinion that matters.

    I remember it was on theaters last year here in Spain.
    And I wanted to see it, cause the trailer looked good. But a friend told me it was really bad, so I didn’t go.
    And all the critics said it was bad. So it’s very likely that it sucks.

    Cute couple and MarriageMatchmaker was fantastic!

    I saw this early this year. The story didn’t make a whole lot of sense, there has to be a lot of supspension of disbelief to even get through the movie. and it was very predictable. No real scares, the acting was passable and I would say if you didn’t have anything else to do then it wouldn’t be terrible to watch. But I can’t really recommend it because it was just okay.

  • Chelle

    i love going to da movies to watch a good horror flick,and this seems like a good movie

  • hondacivic5367

    I never knew this movie was released and watched it for the heck of it. Its certainly not a horror movie and their fans will probably not like it, but to be honest with you its not that bad. Its watchable. Renee is a good job in this movie.
