A24’s Under the Silver Lake delayed again
A24’s Andrew Garfield vehicle Under the Silver Lake is having a hard time sticking with its release date. The film was initially set for a high-profile summer release before being pushed to December 7 of this year. Now, according to IndieWire, the film has been removed from the 2018 calendar and will instead release April 19, 2019.
Per the report, the film received mixed reviews when it made its premier at Cannes. Since then, A24 has had a difficult time finding the right way to spring the drama on audiences. Representatives for the movie have denied any changes have been made to the film, despite rumors to the contrary.
