For the past nine years, we've all been waiting to see if Jesse ever got on that plane and what became of him and Celine in Richard Linklater's 2004 intimate walking-and-talking romance Before Sunset, the follow-up to 1995's Before Sunrise. And now, eighteen years since that first moment in Vienna, we finally get to see where their story lands. Sony Pictures Classics have acquired Before Midnight, and to our delight it's been revealed that the film we've been waiting so long with baited breath to see will finally have a limited release run starting May 24th in New York and Los Angeles. But Linklater's decade-spanning drama isn't the only one getting an official date. Pedro Almodovar's follow-up to last year's The Skin I Live in, the vibrant comedy I'm So Excited, will hit New York and L.A. on June 28th. And to top it off, as Woody Allen's annual film will have a mid-summer's release. Midnight in Paris and To Rome with Love both premiered in early June but his latest, Blue Jasmine (starring Cate Blanchett, Alec baldwin, Peter Sarsgaard, and Louis CK), will roll out on July 26th for a limited release.
So as if you weren't already looking forward to summer, there are plenty of fantastic films headed our way, all sure to tickle your cinematic fancy. So while you're cracking open your planner, take a look at what else is set to premiere in the season and what we're most excited about—from Shane Carruth's haunting sophomore feature to Danny Boyle's latest masterpiece.
