Fox has moved Baz Luhrmann’s period epic “Australia” from November 14th to November 14th, the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The spot was originally occupied by ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”
Currently opening Thanksgiving weekend are “Bolt,”and “Transporter 3.” “Australia” will appeal to the older female demographic.
The film stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman and takes place just before WWII. The film tells the story of an English aristocrat who inherits a ranch and pacts with a stock man in order to protect her property from a takeover. And of course, the pair fall in love.
Luhrman’s productions are usually almost always way too over the top for me, but this one definitely has a much different feel, toning down the overbearing (And at time loud) production design.
