Following a rumor about it yesterday, it has now been confirmed – “The Favorite” and “The Lobster” director Yorgos Lanthimos’ new film “Poor Things” has been delayed.
Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo, and Willem Dafoe star in this Frankenstein-esque surrealist science fiction dark comedy that has been pushed back by three months.
Searchlight Pictures will move the 142-minute title from September 8th to December 8th, a shift that at least keeps the film opening this year, whereas yesterday’s report suggests a potential push into 2024.
That’s not the only date news today, either. The Gael Garcia Bernal-led “Cassandro,” a biopic about gay wrestler Saul Armendariz and his rise in the macho world of Mexican Lucha Libre, has been set for a September 15 limited release before making the Prime Video debut on September 22nd.
Next, GKIDS has announced it will bring “Ernest & Celestine: A Trip to Gibberitia” to select theaters nationwide from September 1st. The film serves as a sequel to the Oscar-nominated 2012 animated film “Ernest & Celestine”.
Forest Whitaker, Mackenzie Foy, Lauren Bacall, Paul Giamatti, William H. Macy, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman, and Jeffrey Wright lend their voices to the English dub.
On the streaming front, several new release dates have been set, with Disney+ finally incorporating “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” in the United States from August 11th.
Adele Lim’s acclaimed comedy “Joy Ride” has set a July 23rd VOD release date. Finally, “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts” is coming to Paramount+ early, with the title available on the SVOD platform from today.
