‘The Lobster’ US release date to be announced “shortly”
A24 have postponed the planned US release of March 11th for Irish film ‘The Lobster’.

The distributor saw three of its’ projects win Oscars on Sunday – Best Actress for Brie Larson of ‘Room’, Best Documentary Feature for ‘Amy’ and Best VFX for Ex Machina. They picked up ‘The Lobster’ from Alchemy last month at Berlin and have stated that they will announce a new release date for the award-winning film “shortly”.

Alchemy acquired the film after Cannes last year where it won a Special Jury Prize as well as receiving highly positive reviews.

‘The Lobster’, supported by the IFB, stars Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz and John C. Reilly and is set in the near future where being single is outlawed. Obeying the laws of the time, Farrell’s character checks himself into a hotel where he has 45 days to find a mate or else be turned into an animal.

Shot in Parknasilla in Co. Kerry in Spring 2014, the film has been acclaimed by critics and made over €1 million in Ireland and the UK during its’ theatrical run last year. Aside from the Jury Prize at Cannes, the film has been nominated for five EFA Awards, seven BIFA Awards and a BAFTA Award.

‘The Lobster’ is written by Yorgos Lanthimos and Efthimis Filippou and produced by Ed Guiney, Lee Magiday, Ceci Dempsey and Yorgos Lanthimos. Executive Producers are Andrew Lowe, Tessa Ross and Sam Lavender. Element and Lanthimos are planning on collaborating again for ‘The Killing of A Sacred Deer’ and ‘The Favourite’, which are both in development.
