As The Hollywood Reporter learned yesterday, Silver Linings Playbook, starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, will no longer open nationwide Nov. 21. Rather, David O. Russell’s drama will only open in 10-15 theaters this weekend, and continue premiering around the country through December.
On Nov. 21, its original opening day, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK will only be playing in around 400 theaters. The film has debuted to rave reviews – already garnering Oscar buzz – but audiences will now have to wait up to a month longer to finally see the film.
Silver Linings Playbook tells the story of former teacher Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper) who after a stint in a mental institution moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer), a mysterious girl with problems of her own.
