The summer movie season is coming to an end, which means we’re that much closer to an uber-promising end of the year. Towards the top of a long list of enticing character dramas I’m looking forward to this fall/winter is Roman Polanski’s Carnage, based off the stage play God of Carnage. THR now reports that Carnage is set to open the New York Film Festival this September, and the film will be hitting theaters in December.
The film stars Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Kate Winslet, and Christoph Waltz, and centers on two couples who come together to settle a schoolyard fight between their kids. Oh, and the movie plays out in real-time. Lest you worry that this means sitting through an agonizing hour and 45-minute argument, Polanski previously promised that the film maintains the humor and wit of the stage play.
