Curious...They've once again postponed the premier of Alatriste in the Netherlands for the 10th of May and...it is known through a registered "nl" version of the spanish Alatriste official homepage. :?

Thanks to IndianMoon for the following information:

'Alatriste' will be shown in the Netherlands (remember, Flanders, Breda, etc) on May 4 at 19:30 at the Melkweg Theater in Amsterdam as part of the 'Festival van de recente Spaanse film'.

Somebody's written the following at ViggoWorks:

"I am utterly frustrated right now.
The german distributor of Alatriste has announced today that they decided not to bring Alatriste in the theaters at all.
They delayed the german premiere twice before and the reason they gave us for the previous delays sounded like lame excuses to me.
The last explanation says they can't do the movies cause it's too long...
There have been movies way longer in the theaters, some of them distributed by 3L, the very company that planned to show Alatriste.
This is sad news for the german fans of Alatriste and the deliberate misinformation and all of their false promises doesn't make it any easier to take.
For those of you, who are dissapointed and angry too, I would love you to comment on our site http://www.viggo-world.de.vu/, so
This would mean, that our feelings about their decision would be somewhat visible at least."

I know Rogorn !
But to see Alatriste in a cinema on a big screen again is reason enough to go to Amsterdam :D

This is the information we have about the London screening on June 8:

http://www.picture-europe.eu/es/index.php?stadt=london

It says it's at 0:00, but maybe that's a default time yet to be set. The film would end at 2:30 AM!

It's been confirmed that 'Alatriste' will be screened in London on June 8 at 18:20 hours, at the Curzon Soho. They're trying to get someone from the film to attend the screening, but no names have been named yet.

'Alatriste' is showing now in Russia, Brazil and the Netherlands (which is nice, as part of the story is set there), and proper public releases too, not just festivals. Hopefully it can get a few more countries under its belt before the dvd releases start. We'd be grateful for any first-hand news from any of those countries. Cheers.

Well not really that much interesting news about the movie in Holland, Rogorn....
Not much in the papers any way, only that Viggo is the main character and that he used to be Aragorn before this. (As if he has not done any other movie in between :twisted: :roll: :twisted: ) Plus some small facts about the movie, nothing new anyway....

Went to see it for the XX time yesterday. :lol: :oops: 8)
The first time I went to see it, it was sold out, 2 weeks ago, but that was during the Spanish Filmfestival in Rotterdam. Mostly Spanish ppl.
Yesterday we (my friends and I) were with 3 and there was one more person at the cinema. I don''t think it really lives under the Dutch ppl, to go to a movie like this during day time. But unfortunately we have to travel over an hour to go and see the movie, and at night it only is shown at 22.00 :roll: So when the movie would be finished, we would have to walk home, (and that would be a bit longer than 1 hour, *grins*....)because than the subways won''t ride anymore, heehee, but I was told that during that time (22.00) it is more crowded.
I have asked for the photographs of the movie, but they said that they would show the movie for some more weeks. (But I did leave my name and address, just in case :lol: :oops: :D ) What they did do is give me a filmposter! So I was happy anyway! :D

And, FINALLY, Alatriste is being released in Portugal!

It opens this Thursday, but I must admit I'm amased at the publicity it's getting. In fact, many newspapers, magazines, ... are offering tickets for the premiere that's taking place tomorrow. I'm really hoping to attend to the premiere!

Obrigado, Arma, keep us informed. Do you know whether any actors or the director are going to be there? And is the premiere going to be in Lisbon only, or somewhere else too?
Thanks.

Hola, Rogorn!

I've just come back from the "premiere". First of all, the one I attended was not in Lisbon, but in Porto. Although, there was also one in Lisbon.

Obviously, no actors/ director ... attended. I mean, it's Portugal! When I say "premiere" I'm really referring to a simple session that takes place a few days before the national-wide release. It was in a shopping centre!

But, anyway, it was nice to see how the portuguese people reacted. It was quite different from the time I watched it in Madrid. People laughed much more in here (sometimes, even in scenes they weren't supposed to....). But it was fun!

Greetings from the New World-

I read Purity of Blood last year but just learned about the "Alatriste" movie this past weekend. There is not much news about it over here.

I'm in the state of Florida , USA. We held a small re-enactment of Sir Francis Drake's Raid on St Augustine (the oldest city in the US) The event is hosted by a "conquistadore" group Men of Memendez Of course I portray one of "El Draco's" men, doing our best to singe King Philipp's beard. We do pike drill, fire arqubuses and a few of us have armor. Unfortunetly it always rains.

As soon as I returned home I found the Alatriste website and this fan site! Great stuff! I have reserved a copy of the US version DVD at Amazon already. But it would be great to see it in the theater.

In the US there are a number of people interested in the Renaissance and even the English Civil War. I hope this movie will increase interest in the period.

Thanks for writing, Mike. If you have any pictures, feel free to hotlink to them here via Imageshack or the like.

'Alatriste' has been shown in the USA a number of times, but only in selected festivals (Miami being one of them), but it has never got a US distributor, so a number of people have bought the Region 2 dvd from European sites. I hope you get your chance to see it soon.

Cheers.

Mensaje por IronMike » Mié Jun 06, 2007 8:14 pm

Rogorn-

Thanks for the info. Miami is a long ways but do-able. Actually, per Amazon there will be a US friendly DVD soon.

Below are a couple of photos of our little event in St. Augustine. Interestingly, the groups do tend to divide into those of Hispanic and Angelo heritage. Of course we are all friends and afterwards we all gladly hoist a few to the King of Spain and Queen of England. However, Florida is very hot and humid and armor rusts very quickly.
