    Missing Link has found its release date. Annapurna said today that the Laika toon starring Zach Galifianakis, Hugh Jackman, and Zoe Saldana will hit theaters on April 19. Written and directed by Chris Butler, the plot follows Mr. Link (Galifianakis), the slightly silly, surprisingly smart and soulful beast who is the last living remnant of Man’s primitive ancestry, the Missing Link. As species go, he couldn’t be more endangered; he’s the last of his kind and he’s lonely…

    Karyn Kusama’s Destroyer places Nicole Kidman into the grisly underbelly of Los Angeles, playing an undercover detective struggling to come to grips with an assignment that went sour some 20 years previous. Evoking a modern-day film noir, Kusama’s film is an intense ride, with a gift of a part for Kidman, who leaped at the chance to add a post-feminist twist to a storied genre. “This sort of film [is] usually centered around a man,” Kidman said at Deadline’s The…

    Any fan of Nicole Kidman would have recognized the willowy, red-headed Australian actress as soon as she appeared on stage this weekend for the Annapurna presentation at Deadline’s The Contenders award-season event in Los Angeles. That wasn’t the case a few minutes later, however, when the DGA Theater’s screen showed scenes from Destroyer with a visage of Kidman that was startlingly unfamiliar. In Destroyer Kidman portrays Erin Bell,  who as a young police officer…

    With the Woolsey Fire still burning after a recent flare-up this morning and evacuations reissued in the Lake Sherwood and Hidden Valley areas, Hollywood continues to turn down the volume on its celebration factor out of respect for the victims, those who’ve lost their homes and the first responders who continue to battle the fire which has burned close to 100,000 acres. As such, Annapurna’s AFI Fest premiere for the Nicole Kidman LAPD noir Destroyer won’t be holding a…

    EXCLUSIVE: The knockout $55 million Thanksgiving holiday weekend opening of the Michael B. Jordan-Sylvester Stallone starrer Creed II has MGM feeling validated about its decision last summer to not put a “for sale” sign on the lawn and instead double down on a future as a theatrical release company that demonstrated the benefit of better control of its marketing and distribution because of its joint venture with Annapurna. To mix sports metaphors, the fight film was the…

    For writer-director Barry Jenkins, the story of If Beale Street Could Talk isn’t entirely found in its plot, but rather in its impressionistic, sometimes dialogue-free scenes that unfold for minutes at a time. “I think they advance the emotion in a very concrete way,” he said at Deadline’s Contenders New York event. “When you read a novel, you read the dialogue between characters but then the author will go on this riff. That’s the interior life of these characters…
