Joel Coen's Macbeth Movie Delayed

Almost exactly one year ago, we learned Joel Coen was taking a break from writing and directing movies with his brother Ethan Coen in order to tackle a new big screen adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic play Macbeth on his own. Shooting was slated to begin in Los Angeles this spring, but it should come as no surprise that the A24 production has been delayed along with pretty much every other movie in Hollywood due to the coronavirus pandemic spreading across the United States.

first cow release date

Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) fears continue to decimate the world of movies, resulting in low box office, theater closings, and more. Universal just made the game-changing decision to release films like Trolls World Tour and The Invisible Man on VOD, breaking the theatrical window. But indie darlings A24 are taking a different approach. The studio will instead re-release Kelly Reichardt’s acclaimed First Cow at a later date. I guess you could say they decided to mooooove the release.

‘Saint Maud’ Trailer Promises You Holy Hell

saint maud trailer new

Saint Maud is bound to be another polarizing horror film from distributor A24. That’s to say it’s going to be beloved by some while others are going to complain that it doesn’t have any jump scares. I’m in the former category – I caught Rose Glass‘s religious nightmare at Fantastic Fest, and it blew me away. In honor of Ash Wednesday, A24 just put out a new Saint Maud trailer, and while it’s effective, it’s also the type of trailer spoiler-phobes might want to avoid.

Claire Denis and Robert Pattinson, the duo that brought us the Fuck Box in A24’s High Life, are getting the band back together. Denis will direct Pattinson in The Stars at Noon – and A24 just picked up the North American rights.

the green knight trailer

David Lowery takes on part of the Arthurian legend with The Green Knight, a medieval fantasy film coming from A24. Dev Patel is Sir Gawain, “King Arthur’s reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic green-skinned stranger.” Since this is a David Lowery film, you can bet it’s not going to be your typical fantasy epic. And that’s exciting. Check out The Green Knight trailer below.

Under the Skin TV Series

Under the Skin is a dramatic sci-fi thriller starring Scarlett Johansson, and now it could be on the verge of being turned into a TV series. But it’s a rather complicated affair.

After earning rave reviews from critics out of the Telluride Film Festival, Under the Skin was released in the spring of 2014, earning only $5.3 million worldwide. It was hardly a runaway hit, but it certainly has an intriguing premise, following an extraterrestrial disguised as a woman as she preys on men in Scotland. Now, a prospective Under the Skin TV series is now at the center of a bidding war between the original film’s financier and A24, the studio that released it in the United States. Read More »

first cow trailer

Meek’s Cutoff and Wendy and Lucy director Kelly Reichardt has a talent for portraying the American working class experience through quiet, contemplative frontier dramas — letting humanity shine through the grim wilderness. Her latest film, First Cow, does that as well, but under the cover of a rather quirky premise: a cook and a refugee strike up a close friendship and an unusual business deal by stealing milk from a cow. It sounds like the set-up for a joke, but it is in fact the foundation for one of the most lovely and tender portrayals of male friendship in some time. Watch the First Cow trailer below.
