MIF Distribution Brief - Q4 '19
– Knives Out: If, like us at MIF, you have a weak spot for Agatha Christie crime mysteries and mind-bending whodunnit scripts, here’s a brand new one for you! Fast-paced and featuring a stellar cast, with Daniel Craig playing the lead role of quirky detective Benoit Blanc, Knives Out premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to raving reviews and was hailed “a treat from start to finish”.
– Midway: From the director of Independence Day comes a movie that promises to be as big on the silver screen as Pearl Harbour was, some 18 years ago, while exposing a lesser known WWII naval battle which, by all experts’ accounts, was a decisive factor in Japan’s defeat.
– Bombshell: Pre-cursor to the #MeToo movement, it is no surprise that Fox News president’s sexual harassment scandal would be turned into a movie featuring three of Hollywood’s most influential and talented women: Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie. Oscar buzz, anyone?
