MPI Media Group and Signature Entertainment have announced the U.S. release date of Woody Allen’s romantic comedy film A Rainy Day in New York, after over a year since it was delayed by Amazon Studios. Originally scheduled for a July 2019 release, the Timothée Chalamet and Elle Fanning-led film will now hit the theaters on Friday, October 9. The date announcement also came with the released of a new trailer which you can check out below!
A Rainy Day in New York tells the story of college sweethearts, Gatsby and Ashleigh, whose plans for a romantic weekend together in New York City are dashed as quickly as the sunlight turns into showers. The two are soon parted, and each has a series of chance meetings and comical adventures while on their own. Over the course of a dreamy and drizzly day in New York, Ashleigh discovers she might not be who she thought she was and Gatsby learns that while you only live once, once is enough if you find the right person.
The film stars Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez, Jude Law, Diego Luna and Liev Schreiber.
A Rainy Day in New York was delayed and dropped by Amazon after Allen’s daughter, Dylan Farrow’s 1992 sexual abuse allegation against her father have resurfaced again in 2017 which have also coincided with the rise of the Me Too movement. Because of this revelation, some of the cast members including Chalamet and Gomez have donated their salary to RAINN and Time’s Up.
