29 years ago, on this day (December 6), Johnny and cast attended the premiere of “Edward Scissorhands” at AVCO Theatre, in Westwood, California, USA.

12 years ago, today, (December 3), Johnny was bloody handsome attending the “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” premiere, at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City.

A more detailed synopsis
describing Johnny’s character was also released:

Magistrate, administrator of an isolated frontier settlement on the border of
an unnamed empire, looks forward to an easy retirement until the arrival of
Colonel Joll, whose task it is to report on the activities of the “barbarians”
and on the security situation on the border. Joll conducts a series of ruthless
interrogations. The treatment of the “barbarians” at the hands of the Colonel
and the torture of a young “barbarian” woman combine to lead the Magistrate to
a crisis of conscience and a quixotic act of rebellion.”

attaches, etc…
These are important to know because two
of these screenings will happen at the morning of September 6, before the

> “Waiting for the Barbarians” Pass Holders Schedule:

2° session: September 6 at 11 AM
3° session: September 7 at 9:55 AM

Although the premiere of “Waiting for the Barbarians”, next September 6 is really sold out, for those interested to watch the movie at the festival, there are still tickets for the next double screening with the movie “La Mafia Non E Piu Quella Di Una Volta”  on the same day at 20:30h. These are going to be the only two screenings open for public at the festival!

Let’s stay tuned!

“Waiting for the Barbarians” will also going to be screened in France!!!

Johnny’s latest movie directed by Ciro
Guerra, featuring Mark Rylance and Robert Pattinson and based on the novel
of the same name by J. M. Coetzee, is set to be screened at the 45th Deauville
American Film Festival
in France.
The festival will happen from September 6 to September
but the official date for the screening is yet to be revealed. Also different from the other
festivals, the movie will only have a premiere and is not in a competition

This will be the second official screening
of the movie, after the Venice Film Festival in September 6 in Italy, and later
the San Sebastian Film Festival, between September 20 to September 28, in Spain.

Let’s stay tuned for the official date for
the premiere and also if cast will attend this festival. Up until now it seems that Robert Pattinson is confirmed to attend the festival but due to his movie “The Lighthouse” by Robert Eggers is on competition for the The Lucien-Barriere Literary Award.

Another day, another festival! Congratulations! 

“Waiting for the Barbarians”  premiere updates:

Although the official list for the upcoming 76th Venice Film Festival is set to
be revealed this weekend, Alberto Barbera, chief, film critic and director for the
event, revealed the date for the upcoming “Waiting for the Barbarians”. 
The premiere is set to happen next September 6, at 19h (local hour). A red
carpet will also happen earlier at the same day, but the exactly hour is yet to
be revealed.
This is the second time, Alberto Barbera confirmed his expectation for Johnny
attend the event, but as we know, it will depend of their schedules, but it
seems that the chances for Johnny attending are pretty high since Robert
Pattinson hasn’t confirmed
 yet to attend because it seems that he will be
filming. As far as I know his next project is the upcoming movie “Tenet”.
Johnny, Robert and Mark Rylance are the lead characters, so at least two of them must be there with the director, Ciro Guerra.
Lily-Rose were also on the list, but she hasn’t confirmed yet, but “The King” is set to premiere earlier in September 2 , and Jude Law in September 3 for “The New Pope”.
Unfortunately the chances to see Johnny and Lily-Rose or Johnny and Jude together are pretty low.

If Johnny attends, this will be the fifth time Johnny attended a Venice Film
Festival, after “From Hell” in 2001, “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” in 2003, “Finding
Neverland” in 2004, accompanying Tim Burton in 2007 when he was honored with
the “Golden Lion” for Lifetime Achievement and his last event in 2015 for “Black Mass”.

Fingers crossed! 

“Waiting for the Barbarians” will premiere
at Venice Film Festival!

Johnny’s latest movie directed by
Ciro Guerra and featuring Mark Rylance and Robert Pattinson and based on the novel of the same name by J. M. Coetzee, is set to have its
world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival, which is set to
happen from August 28 to September 7.
The movie is competing on the “Venezia 76”, an international competition
comprising a maximum of 20 feature-length films, presented as world premieres.

Lily-Rose’s upcoming movie “The King”, an adaptation of several plays from Shakespeare’s
“Henriad”, where she plays Catherine of Valois, will also premiere on the same
festival. It will be cool to see them together, but it’s unknown the official dates for the
premieres, as well IF Johnny or Lily-Rose will be attending the event.
Up until now the only thing revealed was the movie’s length: 1 Hour and 44 Minutes.
