A couple of film projects have announced dates that suggest they’ll be trying for awards consideration come the end of the year.
First up, “Nightcrawler” director director Dan Gilroy’s new feature “Roman Israel, Esq” has been given a November 3rd limited release date by Sony Pictures.
Denzel Washington plays a Los Angeles attorney who is offered a job at a prestigious law firm after the death of his longtime partner and takes on a case that has life-altering repercussions.
Next, Ridley Scott’s “All The Money In The World” starring Michelle Williams, Kevin Spacey, and Mark Wahlberg, a project which is still filming at this point, is being rushed out for a December 8th release this year.
That film deals with the true story tale of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, the heir to the Getty oil fortune, and his mother’s desperate attempt to get the cash for the ransom.
Finally, Rebecca Zlotowski’s Natalie Portman-led period drama “Planetarium” has been set for an August 11th release in select U.S. theaters. Premiering last September at the Venice Film Festival, the late 1930s Paris-set tale follows Portman and Lily-Rose Depp who portray sisters who are believed to possess the supernatural ability to connect with ghosts.
