The film centers on the life of Travers, shifting between 1907 with her childhood in Queensland, Australia, the negotiations with Walt Disney and the making of Mary Poppins in the 1960s. While in California for filming, Travers thinks back to her difficult childhood in Australia, most especially to her father, the inspiration for the role of the story’s patriarch, Mr. Banks

Cast:

Tom Hanks as Walt Disney
Emma Thompson as P.L. Travers
Colin Farrell as Robert Goff Travers
Paul Giamatti as Travers’ chauffeur, Ralph
Jason Schwartzman as Richard M. Sherman
B.J. Novak as Robert B. Sherman

For some reason I've never heard of this until now.

Well, we'll see. But "from the director of The Blind Side and the writer of the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation" doesn't instill any hope in me.

The release date is a pretty good indicator that it will be bad.

I'd like to hear you back that up. Plenty of good films are released the week of/before Christmas.

wonder of this will address Walt Disneys well known anti-semetism
Yup I'm sure they'll touch that in a Disney film.

Also, friendly reminder that Django came out five days after this. What kind of argument is a release date

One was directed by Quentin Tarantino. The other is directed by the Blind Side guy. There are plenty of glaring reasons while this will likely be bad, but the Oscar date is a sign.


Exactly.

release date is a big indicator of whether a studio believes a film will do well or not.
