Weinstein Co. dates trio of pics

Titles to go up against studio tentpoles

Bolstering its summer slate, the Weinstein Co. has dated a trio of titles, starting with Toronto fest pickup “Submarine” for limited release June 3.

Also slated to bow during the summer sesh are World War II drama “Sarah’s Key,” toplining Kristin Scott Thomas and Aidan Quinn, on July 22 and “Dirty Girl,” a gay-themed drama with Juno Temple and Jeremy Dozier on Aug. 5.

TWC’s specialty trio is meant to act as counterprogramming to the summer’s tentpole sked.

Though “Submarine,” about a strange boy (Craig Roberts) in Wales trying to find a girlfriend, will go up against another specialty fest title “Beginners,” with Focus Features distribbing. “Submarine,” from feature debut helmer Richard Ayoade and co-starring Paddy Considine and Sally Hawkins, screened at Sundance in the fest’s spotlight section.

“Sarah’s Key” also will compete with another high-profile Sundance title, Fox Searchlight’s newly dated “Another Earth.” Both pics are set to debut in limited release before expanding throughout the fall.

“Dirty Girl” enters a crowded date alongside four wide releases, including Sony’s live action-animated hybrid “The Smurfs,” Universal’s Ryan Reynolds-Jason Bateman laffer “The Change-Up,” 20th Century Fox’s comedy “The Sitter,” with Jonah Hill and Sam Rockwell, and sci-fier “The Darkest Hour,” from Summit.
