Fact #1: On-the-lot-screenings of Andrew Dominik‘s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (Warner Bros., 9.21) have been few and far between. I’ve been hankering to see it for a long while, hoping to experience that allegedly painterly, Terrence Malick-y element and, if possible, share whatever love I might honestly feel, but WB publicists have their strategy.
Fact #2: The poor movie isn’t listed on the Warner Bros. website along with the other “Coming Soon”-ers (The Brave One, Michael Clayton, Fred Claus, etc.).
Fact #3: The film’s bare-bones website (trailer, synopsis, stills) hasn’t been enhanced or added to in months.
Fact #4: Jesse James is going to Toronto and producer-star Brad Pitt will be there for a day or so to promote it.
Fact #5: The Coming Soon.net Jesse James page says it’s going to have a “limited” release.
