We’ve been talking a lot about our recent film acquisitions, from Sundance to SXSW, TIFF and beyond. Now, we’ve set dates for you to look forward to, announcing our 2016 theatrical film slate. Featuring a wide array of genres, the slate includes documentaries, comedies and dramas — so there will be a movie to watch for whatever mood you’re in!
First up, let’s talk drama. Louder Than Bombs premieres April 8. The film tells the moving and intimate story of a father and his two sons, who must confront conflicting memories of their deceased wife and mother. Next up, October 14 will mark the release of Christine, a true story that stars acclaimed actress Rebecca Hall, as her character fights to succeed in her field as a news reporter.
For all the musicians and music lovers out there, The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble will be released on June 10. The documentary shines light on the collaborations, brainstorming and creativity that happens among this group of artists shaping an evolution in music, so you’re guaranteed to learn a thing or two!
Comedies such as Hunt For The Wilderpeople, out June 24, and Ghost Team, coming this fall, will have you developing a six pack through laughter (yes, we like to believe that’s possible), so make sure to put those on your must-see list.
Two documentaries you just have to watch are Almost Holy (previously known as Crocodile Gennadiy) out May 20, and Life, Animated, premiering on July 8. Both will leave you inspired as they deal with topics such as adversity and how to overcome it, no matter what the circumstances are.
The Orchard’s film lineup is complete with Demon, a thriller releasing this winter. Part love story, part scary, part amusing, but definitely one to watch, Demon will have you on the edge of your seat.
And that folks, rounds up The Orchard’s theatrical film slate for 2016. With all these films to choose from, which one are you most excited for? Sound off in the comment section!
