Magnolia Pictures has scheduled two of its festival pick-ups for the summer with Lauren Greenfield's Sundance favorite doc The Queen of Versailles being released on July 6, and Fernando (City of God) Meirelles' globe-trotting drama 360, starring Jude Law, Rachel Weisz, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Foster, coming out a month later on August 3.

Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival last September, Meirelles' 360 is a film he's been working on for years, as it takes place in many major cities from Vienna to Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix as it follows what happens after a businessman decides to cheat on his wife.

The Queen of Versailles is a portrait of real estate billionaire David Siegel, his wife Jackie and their family and how his plans to build an enormous mansion in Florida falters when the economic crisis of 2008 greatly impacts his business an their lives. It was one of ComingSoon.net's "Best of the Fest" at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
