New Regency and 20th Century studios have decided to postpone the Jeff Nichols movie release date, originally on December 1, in hopes that actors can promote it once the SAG-AFTRA strike ends. More below:
“The Bikeriders” is speeding away from its December 1 release date due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.
While negotiations between the Screen Actors Guild and the AMPTP continue, “The Bikeriders” studios New Regency and 20th Century opted to shelve the feature for a later release date ahead of the marketing campaign. The film is now undated. Directed by Jeff Nichols, “The Bikeriders” stars Austin Butler, Jodie Comer, Tom Hardy, Michael Shannon, Boyd Holbrook, and Norman Reedus as part of a fictional 1960s motorcycle gang. The feature has already screened at the Telluride Film Festival and Austin Film Festival, among other fall festival stops.
The hope is that “The Bikeriders” will succeed better — in terms of both box office and awards — once actors are able to promote the movie. The film’s AMPTP status prohibits participation in press.
