Janelle Monáe Horror Movie ‘Antebellum’ Skips U.S. Theaters & Heads To PVOD
Lionsgate has decided that the best course of distribution financially for their movie Antebellum is to have the movie premiere on premium on-demand platforms on Sept. 18, as COVID-19 safety protocols currently bar New York, California and other stateside cinemas from reopening.
Antebellum will not get a simultaneous theatrical release in the U.S., however, will be released in select offshore markets. The movie, directed and written by filmmakers Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz, was originally intended to be an intriguing horror release for the mini-major, its first release date being April 24, before being moved to Aug. 21, and then undated recently.
