Robert Pattinson #TheKing may get a wide theatrical release

It’s been suggested that Roma lost out to Green Book for best picture due to Netflix not following the business model that the industry has come to expect. The Hollywood Reporter ran an article on Martin Scorcese wanting Netflix to have a wide theatrical release for his new film “The Irishman” in order for it to be considered at the 2020 Oscars for Best Picture. In that story they also mentioned The King and this is what they had to say:

Netflix is facing pressure from other industry groups to conform to Hollywood norms to a greater degree than it did on its release of Alfonso Cuarón’s Spanish-language drama, which won three Oscars (for directing, foreign-language film and cinematography) but lost best picture to Universal Pictures’ Green Book, in part, at least according to interviews with several Academy members, because Oscar voters penalized the company for its business model.

In addition to The Irishman, Netflix also is looking at its theatrical strategies for at least five other potential awards films, including Steven Soderbergh’s The Laundromat, David Michôd’s The King, Dee Rees’ The Last Thing He Wanted, Fernando Meirelles’ The Pope and an as-yet-untitled Noah Baumbach film starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver.

I know they talked about David Michôd’s “War Machine” possibly having a limited theatrical release, but that didn’t happen in Australia. David did do some promo in Tokyo and the US though. Fingers crossed, The King makes it to cinemas in Australia at least. As much as I love the convenience of Netflix, there’s nothing like seeing a film on the big screen – I saw Roma that way and it was beautiful.
