According to IndieWire, ‘Under the Silver Lake’ has sadly been pushed back yet again. This time to April 19, 2019.
After critics were split on the irreverent movie following its Cannes premiere, A24 made the decision to move “Under the Silver Lake” out of its high-profile summer release date to December 7. Now, IndieWire has exclusively learned, the movie has been pushed out of the 2018 calendar entirely and will instead open in the safer corridor of April 19, 2019.
This decision will give the movie “the best possible chance in the marketplace,” according to a representative at Cinetic Marketing, which is working on the film. (A24 declined to comment.) The decision ensures that “Under the Silver Lake” won’t have to compete with this year’s dense fall movie season, and takes it out of awards season conversations where it never had a realistic shot of gaining any momentum. It also leaves open the possibility that the movie could relaunch at a more supportive American festival, such as Sundance in January, SXSW in March, or Tribeca in April.
