We have some disappointing news for all you David Robert Mitchell fans out there. The ‘It Follows‘ director’s latest film, ‘Under the Silver Lake‘ was set to be released in just three weeks on June 22, 2018.
But now we are hearing the release date has been pushed back ’til December 7, 2018.
Why the change? Well, we don’t know for sure. We would say it’s a possible move to set the film up for awards season; however, the early reviews (while positive) don’t exactly scream OSCAR WINNER.
The more likely reason is that A24 is putting all their energy into the upcoming horror flick Hereditary at the moment. It’s scheduled to be released on June 7 and is currently sitting pretty at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. Some critics are calling it the scariest movie in years.
So yeah, perhaps A24 had a bit too much on their plate. It would have been hard to give equal amounts of attention to both Hereditary and Under the Silver Lake in the month of June.
