THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – That means the long holiday won’t be bereft of any new nationwide offerings at the box office.
The Weinstein Co.’s long-gestating Tulip Fever is now set to bloom over Labor Day weekend.
The period drama starring Alicia Vikander will open in theaters nationwide Friday, Sept. 1, instead of rolling out in select cinemas Aug. 25, TWC said Wednesday.
If Tulip Fever doesn’t stick to the revised plan, it will be the first time in 25 years that there isn’t one new nationwide offering at the Labor Day box office.
Tulip Fever was first slated to open in July 2016, but was pushed back to Feb. 24 of this year. Next, it was shifted to Aug. 25.
The film, which features Alicia Vikander opposite Dane DeHaan and Christoph Waltz, is based on Deborah Moggach’s novel about an artist (DeHaan) who falls in love with a married woman (Vikander) after he’s commissioned by her husband (Waltz) to paint her portrait.
