John Lennon Film Set for 70th Birthday Release

“Nowhere Boy,” the acclaimed film that tells the story of John Lennon‘s early days, has gotten a US release date.

I am told that The Weinstein Company will give “Nowhere Boy” its launch on Friday, October 8th, to mark what would have been Lennon’s 70th birthday the next day.

“Nowhere Boy” has already its run in the UK, and played at various film festivals to mostly high praise. The film has attained some notoriety because the director, a woman named Sam Taylor Wood, is now pregnant with the baby of the star, Aaron Johnson, who plays Lennon. He’s 23 years her junior. The baby is due in late summer.

“Nowhere Boy” has been stalled in release simply because TWC could never pick a date. But October 8th does seem appropriate, and will tie in nicely marketing wise with other events planned for that weekend around Lennon’s birthday.
