'Blue Valentine' release date moved up

Blue Valentine, The Weinstein Company’s sober romantic drama that initially received an NC-17 rating, will be released in New York and Los Angeles on Wednesday, Dec. 29 – two days earlier than planned – and then expand to 10 markets on January 7. TWC confirmed the move, first reported by Deadline. Even with the two-day jump on the weekend, this still marks nearly a year since Valentine made a splash at Sundance.
