    Yup! That's the wide release date. It came out in 6 theaters on Sunday.

    As for the Oscars @corey, it's release date isn't really what would kill its chances at the Oscars :P. it's the lovely bones the closer and closer we get lol. I'm guessing a best supporting actor being the only nom it's going to get, just like da bones!

    @corey Perhaps @moviegeek can verify this, but perhaps that's just the wide release date. I'm really not sure.

    Wait..hold the phone. When did this turn into a 2012 release @thedude-abides@moviegeek? I thought this had a chance at the Oscars in February. Why the date change?!
