FILM NEWS: Will .@Netflix give #TheKing a Wide Theatrical Release? Possibly …

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

“Netflix is facing pressure from other industry groups to conform to Hollywood norms to a greater degree than it did on its release of Alfonso Cuarón’s Spanish-language drama, which won three Oscars (for directing, foreign-language film and cinematography) but lost best picture to Universal Pictures’ Green Book, in part, at least according to interviews with several Academy members, because Oscar voters penalized the company for its business model.

In addition to The Irishman, Netflix also is looking at its theatrical strategies for at least five other potential awards films, including Steven Soderbergh’s The Laundromat, David Michôd’s The King, Dee Rees’ The Last Thing He Wanted, Fernando Meirelles’ The Pope and an as-yet-untitled Noah Baumbach film starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver.”

  1. Hi guys!
    I love your page and thanks for all the great info and links about ‘The King’.
    The film is of interest to me because Ivan plays Lord Scrope in it which is a smaller, but interesting character (or so I hope as he has potential).
    Just wanted to let you know that I did an extensive video interview with Ivan today and towards the end he talked quite a bit about his experience filming ‘The King’ and also gave a vivid description of how great David Michôd was as a director.
    The material is not edited yet and we’ll have to see if all of it can be published now, but I thought it might interest you that there is something coming sometime during the next couple of weeks I think.
    All the best,

    1. Hi Susanne – that would be great – let us know when it’s ready and would love to share and hear what Ivan has to say about David. 😃
