Amazon is bucking the trend and will release the Emerald Fennell-directed film Saltburn in theatres on Black Friday, 24 November this year. By: Talia
Despite the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, which has caused some studios to delay or cancel their fall and holiday releases. The film is set to be release on 24 November in New York and LA with plans to expand out to additional theatres in December.
This is a significant move for Amazon, as it shows that the company is still committed to releasing films in theatres, even in the face of challenges. It is also a sign of confidence in the film, starring Rosamund Pike, Jacob Elordi, and Barry Keoghan.
The success of Ben Affleck's film Air, which was released in theatres over Easter and grossed over $90 million worldwide, is likely another factor in Amazon's decision to release Saltburn in theatres. The streamer is clearly hoping that Saltburn will be another commercial success, and a theatrical release will give the film the best chance of achieving that goal.
Overall, Amazon's decision to release Saltburn in theatres is a positive development for the film industry. It shows that there is still demand for theatrical releases, even in the age of streaming. It is also a sign that Amazon is committed to releasing high-quality films, and that it is willing to take risks on new talent.
Amazon is excited about Emerald Fennell's next film, Saltburn, featuring a tightly-guarded plot about an aristocratic family. The film stars Jacob Elordi, Carey Mulligan, Rosamund Pike, Barry Keoghan, and Richard E. Grant.
There is speculation that Saltburn will be screened at the Telluride Film Festival. Fennell's previous film, Promising Young Woman, which also starred Mulligan, won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in 2021.
