Unhinged doesn’t open in the U.S. until Aug. 21 in what will be a 2,000 total theater count (including Canada). The reason why the movie is opening in Canada first is so that the pic has a clear two week runway before Tenet arrives.

The bar for success is modest. It was heartening for us to hear the perspectives of theater owners. We are launching as a company that makes films for the theatrical marketplace, and there’s no better way to demonstrate your commitment to theatrical than to be the canary in the coal mine in a post-pandemic atmosphere. We love and support the theaters and the jobs they represent, but from a business perspective, we see an opportunity to have a week or two of clear path before theaters get Mulan and Tenet.” … [Read more...] about Solstice Studios’ Russell Crowe Road Rage Thriller ‘Unhinged’ To Be First Film Back In Movie Theaters July 1
