Two weeks on from unveiling the first teasers for his film, Icon has set The Neon Demon UK release date for July. That gives us just over two months to go before Nicolas Winding Refn returns to the big screen.
Elle Fanning takes centre stage in Refn’s follow-up to Only God Forgives, which hit cinemas almost three years ago. Icon’s decision to position The Neon Demon UK release date in the height of blockbuster season is a good signal of their faith in this project’s ability to connect with audiences. And it will be really interesting to see how wide a release they give it in July.
Along with news of the new The Neon Demon UK release date, we’ve also got our first poster for the film. Fanning graces the French one-sheet ahead of the film’s world premiere at Cannes this month.
When aspiring model Jesse moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.
Christina Hendricks, Abbey Lee, Jena Malone, Keanu Reeves, Bella Heathcote, Alessandro Nivola, Karl Glusman, Desmond Harrington, and Charles Baker round out the ensemble cast.
Refn directs from a script he co-wrote with debut screenwriter Mary Laws and Polly Stenham (Playhouse Presents: Foxtrot).
The horror/thriller will definitely have strong competition when it opens over the second weekend of July. The Neon Demon UK release date in July sees it open alongside Now You See Me 2 and The Legend of Tarzan, both of which have the potential to bring in big audiences to the multiplex.
The Neon Demon UK release date is set for July 8th. It’s expected to arrive in the US cinemas sometime this summer, before made available to Amazon Prime customers in the States later this year.
