Dylan Movie to Open Like a Rolling Premiere

I'll say. Rolling it out to only 4 theaters on November 21. But this method's worked for the filmmaker before.

Harvey Weinstein offers a violent demonstration of faith in "I'm Not There"'s Oscar attractions to John Anderson in the New York Times.
"I may be jumping the gun," Mr. Weinstein said, "but if Cate Blanchett doesn't get nominated, I'll shoot myself."
The movie has Dylan's blessing, but I'm a little skeptical of this actress playing Bob Dylan. Can you imagine selling that idea to the movie people? "... and yeah, are you ready for it? We're getting Cate Blanchett to play Bob in the early years... What?"

I know I think Bob Dylan whenever I look at that frail, pale, lovely lady but if they can pull this off, I may eat my Bob Dylan records. Well, maybe just the John Wesley Harding one.

Have you seen the clip that was leaked to YouTube? (LINK)

Cate Blanchett has the Dylan mannerisms down pat. It's a decent visual impression. You'll notice David Cross in this clip as well.

Thanks for stopping by, arratik.

She does a decent impression of him, but for some reason I can't get past it. Not because she's a woman, but I don't think I can watch her and be entertained enough to think I'm seeing Bob Dylan in her portrayal of him. Now, Robert Downey made me totally forget I was watching him and I was able to see Charlie Chaplin in his portrayal of Chaplin. It's going to be a stretch for Cate Blanchett to fit well in this role, that's all I'm saying. =)

I just watched that clip - I see Blanchet and Dylan kinda mixed up together. She makes him look too handsome.
I see in the blurb that Richard Gere is also playing Dylan in this - that I cannot imagine. Dylan as block of wood.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
