Good news (sort of)

Creation, the British biography about Charles Darwin which was having difficulty finding a US distributor, now has a US distributor.

Now comes word from The Hollywood Reporter that the independent distributor Newmarket has now picked up the film, which was produced by BBC Films and Ocean Pictures.
Ironically enough, this is the same distibutor that put out Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ.

I still suspect that the film will likely not be shown in particular regions of the country (i.e. the Bible Belt) and that the ability to find a distibutor for critically aclaimed film about the co-discoverer of evolution by natural selection was ever in doubt in the first place is still not a good sign.
