In an interview with Screen Crush, star of The Spectacular Now Miles Teller, told the site that TSN will have an August release date. Here’s what he said:
You finished wrapping up ‘The Spectacular Now’ a while ago, and I haven’t seen it, but a couple of my colleagues have and they were very impressed with your performance. So congratulations on that.
I’ve been reading that it’s going to SXSW.
Yeah, I think it’s playing March 11 at SXSW.
What’s the current plan to bring this film to the masses more?
Yeah, it was picked up by A24. A24 is a distribution company, they’re doing ‘Bling Ring,’ Sofia Coppola’s movie. They’re also doing ‘Spring Breakers.’ I think the goal for this is August 2 it’ll start out in select cities and then platform.
I think ‘Perks of Being a Wallflower,’ and the fact that movie did so well and really found a big audience, I think that kind of opened the door probably a little bit for this.
Tickets aren’t available yet, but according to the SXSW website, Spectacular Now will be playing March 11 at 9:30 pm at the Topfer Theatre. Meanwhile, the film will be closing the Atlanta Film Festival on March 23.
