Lenny Abrahamson's 'Room' set for October 16 release in the US

Lenny Abrahamson’s new drama ‘Room’ will be released in New York and Los Angeles on October 16, before a full nationwide rollout on November 6th.

The film will be distributed in the US by A24, with many in the industry seeing an autumn/winter US release as a primer for potential Oscar contention. John Crowley’s ‘Brooklyn’ will also be released in the US on November 6th.

‘Room’ has not screened at any festivals yet but it was this week handed a key slot (along with Irish films ‘Brooklyn’ and ‘The Lobster’) at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Produced by Element Pictures and No Trace Camping with funding from the Irish Film Board, ‘Room’ is told through the eyes of a five year old who is held captive in a room along with his mother. The film stars Brie Larson, William H. Macy and Jacob Tremblay. Earlier this year, Filmnation Entertainment sold out all international rights to the film.

‘Room’ is directed by Lenny Abrahamson with Emma Donoghue adapting the screenplay from her own award-winning novel. The film was post-produced at Screen Scene in Dublin. The creative team includes Abrahamson’s regular collaborators, editor Nathan Nugent (‘Frank’) and composer Stephen Rennicks (also ‘Frank’).

Element Pictures’ Ed Guiney (‘The Lobster’, ‘Frank’, ‘What Richard Did’) produced ‘Room’ with David Gross (‘What If’, ‘Goon’). Executive producers are Andrew Lowe (‘The Lobster’, ‘Frank’, ‘The Wind that Shakes the Barley’) for Element Pictures and Jeff Arkuss (‘What If’) and Jesse Shapira (‘What If’, ‘Goon’) for No Trace Camping.
