Optimum Releasing, a Studio Canal Company, just posted in their press section that Bel Ami starring Robert Pattinson, now has a UK theatrical release date of August 2011.
You’ll note in the screen cap that they are still using ‘TBC’ or to be confirmed, so this seems to be a tentative release date. When contacted via email, Optimum Releasing stated:
"Bel Ami is currently scheduled for a UK Theatrical release in August 2011.
I’m afraid I can’t confirm as to other territories as Optimum only distributes within the UK."
Side note: the certificate which is shown as TBC, refers to the designation used ‘to classify films with regard to suitability for audiences in terms of issues such as sex, violence, substance abuse, profanity, impudence or other types of mature content. A particular issued rating is called a certification.’ source So Bel Ami is still unrated.
** Optimum Releasing is the company responsible for the release of Bel Ami in UK.
