There has been a slight change to the release date of Noah Baumbach's (THE SQUID AND THE WHALE, MARGOT AT THE WEDDING) latest film, GREENBERG. The film is getting pushed back, but not by much. GREENBERG will be hitting theaters on March 26th, instead of March 12 like originally planned.

Why? Not sure, but Chase and I have a little theory with absolutely no facts to back it up. So of course we are going to tell you about it. We hope it might be getting pushed back a little so it can play at the SXSW Film Festival, one of our favorite festivals to take part in.

GREENBERG seems like a film that would fit right in at the festival. And the film part of the awesome Austin-based festival runs from March 12-20, as the dates of the festival support this theory. Again, we are speculating with no facts, so we will have to wait and see till the entire SXSW Film Festival is announced to see if we are right.

Press release after the jump!


Writer / Director: Noah Baumbach (“The Squid and the Whale”)

Cast: Ben Stiller, Greta Gerwig, Rhys Ifans, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Chris Messina, Brie Larson, Juno Temple

MPAA Rating: R

Release: March 26, 2010

Greenberg brings actor Ben Stiller together with Academy Award-nominated writer/director Noah Baumbach ("The Squid and the Whale") to tell the funny and moving tale of Roger Greenberg. Focus Features releases Greenberg on March 26th, 2010.

Roger Greenberg [Ben Stiller], single, fortyish and at a crossroads in his life, finds himself in Los Angeles, house-sitting for six weeks for his more successful/married-with-children brother. In search of a place to restart his life, Greenberg tries to reconnect with old friends including his former bandmate Ivan [Rhys Ifans]. But old friends aren't necessarily still best friends, and Greenberg soon finds himself spending more and more time with his brother's personal assistant Florence [Greta Gerwig], an aspiring singer and also something of a lost soul. Despite his best attempts not to be drawn in, Greenberg and Florence manage to forge a connection, and Greenberg realizes he may at last have found a reason to be happy.
