For undisclosed reasons, Warner Independent has pushed the release of Funny Games to next February, instead of the rumored Halloween and Christmas release dates. Comingsoon.net, the IMDb, and Warner Independent's official site all confirm this... even though the trailer was released just a few days ago. This would likely explain why the film didn't show at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, and perhaps the date has been pushed for consideration at next year's Cannes (Haneke won the best director prize for Caché and the Grand Prix for La pianiste). If anything changes further, I'll be sure you keep you posted.
