‘Mother’, starring Jennifer Lawrence, has release date moved to September
Paramount Pictures has moved the Jennifer Lawrence starred thriller “Mother!” forward by a month to September 15th from its previous October 13th release date.
The date change was confirmed on Thursday but an explanation was not given.
“Mother!” could possibly be premiered at the Venice Film Festival, which opens on Aug. 30, or the Telluride Film Festival, which opens two days later, or potentially even at the Toronto Film Festival, which opens Sept. 7.
“Mother!” is directed and produced by Darren Aronofsky through his Protozoa Pictures banner along with Scott Franklin and Ari Handel. It co-stars Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kristin Wiig, Domnhall Gleeson, and Ed Harris, in addition to Lawrence.
Lawrence and Bardem portray a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting an otherwise tranquil existence.
“Mother!” will open against Open Road’s Blake Lively drama “All I See Is You” and Lionsgate’s actioner “American Assassin,” starring Michael Keaton and Dylan O’Brien.
Lawrence’s recent list of movies includes “Passengers” and as Raven Darkholme-Mystique in “X-Men: Apocalypse.” Her other upcoming thriller “Red Sparrow,” directed by “Hunger Games” helmer Francis Lawrence, is set for a March 2 release from Fox. Jennifer Lawrence has been nominated for Academy Awards for “Joy,” “Winter’s Bone,” and “American Hustle,” and won for “Silver Linings Playbook” in 2012.
“Mother!” is the first film that Aronofsky has directed since 2014’s “Noah.” He received an Academy Award nomination for best director for 2010’s “Black Swan.”
