Screening Gotham: Weinsteins on Fast Track to Another Flop

By Christopher Campbell, guest editor

Some of today’s movie news of note from around New York:

--You’d almost think The Weinstein Company is trying to be the world’s dodgiest distributor. In case any of you were looking for Fast Track (right) starring Zach Braff this past weekend, you can now look for it in March (probably alongside Factory Girl, in all likelihood) with the supposedly more appropriate title The Ex. And yet for some reason, the Weinsteins are still able to make deals at Sundance this week.

--We have less than 24 hours before Oscar nominations are revealed, and have you heard it could be Marty’s year? The important question, though, is why Marty cares: "An Oscar signifies something that's important to the New York filmmaker, and that is acceptance in the far glades of Los Angeles filmmaking,” writes Washington Post critic Stephen Hunter.

--And according to Marky Mark, Scorsese may be out of New York for a while longer: like its source material Infernal Affairs, The Departed is apparently getting the trilogy treatment.
