the green knight release date

If you were holding out hope that A24 would just finally give in and release The Green Knight on VOD soon, I’m sorry to tell you that’s not happening. But here’s the good news: the film has a new release date – next summer. And for now, the plan is to release the Dev Patel pic in theaters, not on VOD. The David Lowery-directed movie was originally supposed to open May 29, 2020, but that obviously didn’t happen. Since then, we’ve all been waiting to see what A24 would do, and now we know.

Chippendales Murder Movie

I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie has a new shocking true story in the works. Gillespie will helm a pic based on the Chippendales murders, in which Somen “Steve” Banerjee, the co-founder of the male exotic dance club, ordered several of his ex-dancers killed. Dev Patel is attached to star as Banerjee, with a script by Craig Williams. It’s the type of scandalous true crime saga that Gillespie tackled with I, Tonya, which suggests he’s a good fit for the film.

The Personal History of David Copperfield clip

The coronavirus pandemic has thrown a mountain-sized wrench into everyone’s year, revealing huge systemic problems and causing comparably insignificant annoyances along the way. Falling squarely in that latter category: several movies we really want to see still haven’t been released in the United States yet.

Armando Iannucci‘s The Personal History of David Copperfield debuted at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and received spectacular reviews (including from /Film’s Chris Evangelista), and as it inches toward a release, Searchlight Pictures has unveiled a new clip of the movie, showing Dev Patel and Hugh Laurie flying a kite. Sound pleasant? It is! Read More »

The Green Knight roleplaying game

When exactly will audiences have the chance to see The Green Knight, director David Lowery‘s (Pete’s Dragon, A Ghost Story) cinematic reimagining of the Arthurian legend? The movie was removed from the release calendar at the end of April, and a week later, Lowery himself was saying that “no one knows” when it will see the light of day. But a press release from distributor A24 promoting a new The Green Knight roleplaying game (we’ll get to that in a second) seems to hint that the indie distributor is still holding out hope for a theatrical release. Get the details on that and the new game below. Read More »

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.

Armando Iannucci, the mind behind darkly funny, highly verbose comedies like In the Loop and The Death of Stalin, may not seem like the person to take on Charles Dickens. But that’s exactly what he does, and does extremely well, with the hilarious, star-studded The Personal History of David Copperfield. Iannucci stays true to Dickens’ text while also giving the film a modern sensibility, resulting in one of the year’s most charming films. Watch The Personal History of David Copperfield trailer below.

Hotel Mumbai trailer

In 2008, as Dev Patel‘s breakout hit Slumdog Millionaire was in a limited run in North American theaters, a group of ten terrorists organized a series of bombings and shooting attacks in India’s financial capital of Mumbai. More than 170 people were killed, and more than 300 were injured. Ten years later, Patel is starring in a movie about those events.

In Hotel Mumbai, Patel plays a newly-promoted waiter who’s on the clock at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel when the attacks begin, and Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name) co-stars as a wealthy American who’s also caught in the chaos. Check out the first trailer below.
