Mother of Variety

Variety Cannes Film Festival 2007 issue

Dario Argento’s The Third Mother is clearly set to receive considerably more publicity than I had originally expected, certainly more than his last few films, as it is the featured title on the cover of the Cannes Film Festival 2007 issue of Variety. I’ve never bought Variety before (the bizarre abbreviations and grammatical oddities used in the publication’s articles drive me up the wall, actually), but I’m definitely going to look into getting hold of a copy of this issue. Does anyone know of any online stores that are selling it?

As reported at Asia Argento fan site Ode to Azia, a three-minute preview of the film will be shown at Cannes on May 20th, along with a brand new print of Suspiria.

Credit for discovering this goes to Mannfan at Dark Discussion.

Update, May 14th, 2007 07:32 AM: Apparently, despite its prominent position on the cover, there’s nothing about the film inside the actual magazine.

Wow, that's something I honestly didn't expect. Do you think there's a chance that it'll make it into US cinemas?

We’ll probably know sooner or later. I suspect Medusa will try to shop it around at Cannes, so the three-minute preview may end up being the deciding factor for whether or not it gets a theatrical release outside Italy.

I wouldnt expect any wide US release for this, sorry.
