Fruitvale-640x360

The Weinstein Company promises to be a player again in next year’s Oscar race as they announce the release date for two potential awards films, Fruitvale and Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom. Although it’s only March, TWC’s machinery is already hard at work!!!

Ryan Coogler’s Fruitvale, which won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award for an U.S. dramatic film at the Sundance Film Festival in January, will be released on October 18.

There is already talk of a possible screening of the film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, but a showing at the Toronto Film Festival is practically a sure thing with an Oscar nominations push by the company towards the end of the year.

Meanwhile Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom starring Idris Elba in the lead role and Naomie Harris is scheduled for a November 29th release which also practically guarantees the Weinstein Co will also go for a major Oscar awards push for the film as well.
