Alicia Vikander Movie ‘Tulip Fever’ Pushed Back to February 2017

Tulip Fever,” the art house film starring Alicia Vikander, will be pushed back from July 15 to a February 24, 2017, release date, the Weinstein Company announced.

The film — about a young woman who has a passionate affair with an artist sent to paint her portrait — was thought to be a potential awards contender, in part because of the presence of Vikander who won last year’s best supporting actress Oscar for “The Danish Girl.”

Set in 17th century Amsterdam, two lovers gamble that tulip bulbs will finance their escape to a new life. The film was directed by Justin Chadwick and written by Tom Stoppard, from the novel by Deborah Moggach.

TWC offered no explanation for the change in dates. The company now has three films set for the remainder of 2016: “The Founder,” with Michael Keaton as McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc, coming on Aug. 5; “Hands of Stone,” about boxer Roberto Duran, due on Aug. 26; and “Lion,” a Thanksgiving opener about an Indian boy who makes his way home after being adopted by an Australian couple.
