The Green Knight finally gets a new UK release date, and is set for later this month: more details here.
Well, this has all been a bit frustrating. David Lowery’s eagerly-awaited The Green Knight should have been in UK cinemas by now, in line with its US release. However, a late in the day decision by its UK distributor to yank the film from a local theatrical run – at two weeks’ notice – has left British cinemagoers unable to see the movie. In the meantime, it’s notched up rave reviews in the States, whilst being left in limbo over here.
And now we officially learn why. The film – headlined by the mighty Dev Patel – has been picked up for distribution by Amazon, and it’s agreed to give it a cinema outing in the UK after all, on the same day it hits its Prime Video streaming service.
The date to mark in the calendar is September 24th, and it’ll be the original UK distributor – Entertainment – handling the theatrical release of the film. But you’ll have a choice basically as to where to watch it.
Three weeks from the date of this article then. The wait is nearly over…
