Netflix has revealed the first of its films to get more than a minimum award-qualifying run will be Paul Greengrass’ “22 July”.
Variety reports that the film, about Norway’s largest terrorist attack, will have an exclusive Scandinavian run beginning October 4th and a global theatrical run beginning on October 10th with plans to show the film on around 100 screens around the world on the same day it hits the service.
That would make the theatrical run one of the largest in the streaming company’s history with Canada and numerous European countries included in that run. In the US, the film is expected to hit over a dozen major markets including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington, DC.
The Coen Brothers’ “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” David Mackenzie’s “Outlaw King,” and Orson Welles’ “The Other Side of the Wind” are all expected to get strong theatrical runs as well. A decision about Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma,” and whether to give it an exclusive theatrical run, remains pending.
