The Tree of Life gets pushed back again

May see Cannes premiere after all

The incessent distribution issues with Terrence Malick's latest film show no sign of halting, as legal issues prevent a 4 May UK release.Will it never end?

Just two days ago we were clambering onto our desks, performing a celebratory dance to the news that Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life was getting an early Blighty release - a week before its Cannes appearance.

Now it appears our beliefs were misguided, as Icon Film Distribution Ltd. have been informed they lack the rights for a pre-Cannes release.

Although this promises to rile up further frustration amongst Mallick fans, deep down we know it's probably a good thing; this film carries the amount of heft that only a Croisette unveiling could do justice to.

Plus, it can now still run for the Palme d'Or. Which is never a bad thing.

What do you think? Is Cannes the only venue befitting of such an anticipated unveiling? Vent your frustration/relief below.
