'Before Midnight,' latest from Woody Allen & Pedro Almodovar get release dates

Fans of Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise and Before Sunset have spent nine long years yearning to see the next chapter of Celine and Jesse’s story — and this spring, the wait will finally be over.

Statistical research firm Exhibitor Relations revealed via Twitter yesterday that Linklater’s Before Midnight will hit theaters in New York and Los Angeles on May 24. That date was confirmed by the movie’s Facebook page. Like the first two films in the series, Midnight stars Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy as a pair of photogenic lovers. It premiered at Sundance in January and will play at Austin’s South by Southwest Film Festival next month as well.

Exhibitor Relations also announced release dates for two more high-profile auteur projects: Pedro Almodóvar’s I’m So Excited (Los amantes pasajeros), starring Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas, and Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, starring Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Peter Sarsgaard, and Louis C.K., among others. I’m So Excited comes to New York and L.A. June 28; Blue Jasmine appears in those same cities July 26.

Sundance 2013: 'Fruitvale,' 'Before Midnight,' and the same-sex sexytime of 'Concussion'

Before the awards are given out tonight at Sundance 2013, I’ve got three of my own to bestow, to movies that have stayed in my mind in the days since I traded the relatively balmy cold mountain air of Park City, Utah, for the frigid wilds of the Northeast.

The first award, for The Best Drama Most Likely to Break Your Heart, goes to Fruitvale — which, I’ll wager, will win other, more official awards later today too. This vivid, fast-moving, fired-up story propels forward with truth in its engine: In the early hours of New Year’s Day 2009, a young Bay Area African-American man named Oscar Grant was killed by a white cop’s bullet at the Fruitvale train station. Grant wasn’t a saint, but he wasn’t a sinner, either — just a guy with a live-in girlfriend and a young daughter, trying to figure out how to do right and stay away from doing wrong.

The high achievement of Fruitvale, by first-time filmmaker Ryan Coogler (an African-American son of the Bay area himself ) lies in the way Coogler shapes his story, dramatizing the last day of Grant’s life as a means of conveying character; in the energy and immediacy of the no-nonsense visual style; and in the fine cast he put together. Michael B. Jordan earns his movie-star stripes as Grant; the magnificent Octavia Spencer commands her part of the story as Grant’s mother; Melonie Diaz brings Grant’s girlfriend to full life. I hope Coogler has more stories he feels he needs to tell as urgently as he tells this one. READ FULL STORY

Richard Linklater jokes about Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke, porn for sequel 'Before Midnight'

There’s something so laid back about Richard Linklater in person, similar to his movies, many of which ooze a certain improv, off-the-cuff quality, such as 1993’s ever-amazing Texas school ride Dazed & Confused, or his romantic films Before Sunrise, in 1995, and Before Sunset, in 2004, both starring Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke.

It’s no surprise, then, that the director was equally laid back and jokingly coy discussing reuniting with Delpy and Hawke for the sequel Before Midnight, which recently wrapped filming and is now in post-production.

“It was intense. It was like a really intense three week shoot,” said Linklater, while doing a sit-down with EW for his dark comedy Bernie. “I think people who really liked the first two will like this one. They’ll appreciate it.”

In Before Sunrise, Delpy, as Celine, and Hawke, as Jesse, meet in Vienna, and then reunite in Paris in Before Sunset. In Before Midnight, they’re enmeshed with each other in Europe again.

“Julie and Ethan looked at themselves and said, ‘If we’re every going to do it, we better do it now, so it’s the last window we can actually make our porn video,” said Linklater, laughing. “So get ready!”

The rumors are true: Actors Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy and director Richard Linklater just wrapped production in southern Greece on Before Midnight, the third movie in their series about the furtive romance between Celine (Delpy) and Jesse (Hawke) that began with 1995’s Before Sunrise (in Vienna), and continued with 2004’s Before Sunset (in Paris). The announcement also came with a first look image from the film, which you can see above. Producers are aiming for a 2013 release.

Fans of Before Sunset will likely recall that the film concluded with one of the most highly regarded endings in recent cinema history, as Jesse, married with a kid, appeared to decide to miss his plane home to the U.S. to spend more time with Celine. Although no plot details for the follow-up were announced, Delpy, Hawke, and Linklater — who won an Oscar nod for Before Sunset‘s screenplay — did collaborate once again on Before Midnight‘s script.  READ FULL STORY

Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke reportedly filming 'Before Sunset' sequel in Greece


Writer-director Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise laid the ground work for Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy’s ultra-romantic union on film in 1995 as Jesse and Celine, who meet on a train and spend the night together in Vienna. 2004’s Before Sunset reunited the two actors, set nine years later in equally swoon-worthy Paris.

Now a Greek film news site reports that Linklater has been filming his untitled sequel to the two films in Greece, again with Delpy and Hawke, with his company Detour Films behind the shoot. Calls and emails to Linklater’s manager were not immediately returned.

Hawke told IndieWire in June about shooting the followup, but said he couldn’t comment on details. He also joked to Vulture the film would be called Before We Go Crazy. One possible name being tossed around is Before Midnight.

What about Before Too Long?
