Uncover the SALINGER mystery (but don’t spoil it!)

I think I’m probably due for another read of J.D. Salinger‘s classic 1951 novel, The Catcher in the Rye, which I haven’t read in years but it’s definitely one of my favorite books. Next month there’s a documentary dropping (on September 6th) about the reclusive and very mysterious man behind the book, aptly titled SALINGER. The film apparently contains new information about the author and what became of him so the filmmakers are asking everyone who sees it not to spoil it for people who haven’t seen the film (or read the book). All of this mystery has me completely intrigued and I seriously cannot wait to see this documentary, check out a brand-new poster below along with the film’s trailer.

SALINGER

“Back in 1993, when Miramax released THE CRYING GAME, we asked journalists and moviegoers not to reveal the film’s secret to their friends,” commented TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein. “With SALINGER we have a similar situation – the joy of this documentary is discovering information that, until now, has been kept under wraps for decades. I stand with Shane Salerno and Simon & Schuster’s Jonathan Karp in urging audiences and critics alike to let others satisfy their own curiosity about the film and book. ”

Noted Jonathan Karp, President and Publisher at Simon & Schuster: “There are two kinds of people in the world – blabbermouths and confidants,” added Jonathan Karp, President and Publisher of Simon & Schuster. “We ask readers and moviegoers to be our confidants. It’s been said that there are no secrets anymore, but SALINGER is revelatory, and we hope people will have the opportunity to experience jolts of surprise directly from the works, rather than a smartphone or a tablet.”
