The first of Netflix’s award-contenders, David Michôd’s The King, will screen exclusively in Western Australia at The Backlot Perth, before debuting November 1 to subscribers of the streaming giant.
After premiering at the Venice Film
Festival earlier this year, West Australian cinephiles and movie buffs can
catch the historical epic from October 11 for a one week limited theatrical
season at this intimate and luxurious cinema.
A theatrical release for The King makes sense, not only for the
visual scope and scale of the film, but also because of its Australian roots.
Australian writer, director, actor Joel Edgerton co-wrote the
screenplay with director Michôd (Animal
Kingdom) while the two of them also produced alongside Liz Watts. The
movie is based on William Shakespeare’s Henry plays
and follows a young Prince Hal (Timothee Chalamet) who must learn to cope with
power and war with France when he’s unexpectedly thrust on the throne when his
father (Ben Mendelsohn) dies.
the first movie this year Netflix will release into cinemas locally. Last year,
Netflix released Alfonso
Cuaron’s Oscar winner Roma into cinemas for two weeks. It also marks the first of a planned slate of
Netflix films that will receive a theatrical release over the coming months.
Backlot Perth is a purpose built exclusive cinema nestled between Northbridge
and Leederville, on the outskirts of Perth’s CBD. It features 50 luxurious
leather seats, a 7m x 4m screen, Dolby Digital 7.1 sound and private lounge and
bar area, making it one of Perth’s premium cinema offerings.
