Tulip Fever stars Christoph Waltz (Spectre) as artist Cornelis Sandvoort, who falls for young, married Sophia (Ex Machina‘s Alicia Vikander, right, with Waltz) while he’s commissioned to paint her portrait during the tulip mania of 17th century Amsterdam.
Directed by Justin Chadwick (The Other Boleyn Girl, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom), with a screenplay by Tom Stoppard, based on the Deborah Moggach novel, this also features Dane DeHaan, Zach Galifianakis, Holliday Grainger, Tom Hollander, Jack O’Connell, Kevin McKidd, Judi Dench, David Harewood, Matthew Morrison and, for some reason, Cara Delevingne, but while there’s a mostly good cast on show, it looks pretty dull.
DVDfever will NOT be getting Tulip Fever when it’s released, which was originally July 15th last year for the US, but has been put back to August 27th THIS year. There’s still no UK date as of yet, but it’s very telling that this has been sat on the shelf for a whole year since the International Trailer was released.
