Sundance Favorite 'Me & Earl & the Dying Girl' Set for July Release
Briefly: Fox Searchlight has confirmed (via @ERCboxoffice) a release date for the upcoming indie sensation Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, which won both the Audience Award & Grand Jury Prize at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and won our hearts too. The film earned a top spot on our list of the Best of the Fest, as well as plenty of glowing reviews by the end of the festival. It's definitely going to find an audience outside of the fest, and Fox Searchlight is banking on its success. The studio has scheduled a limited release starting on July 1st, 2015 this summer, which is when they usually open one of their new Sundance gems. We'll be following this release closely as it's one of our favorites, too.
In related release date news, Open Road Films has scheduled Oliver Stone's Snowden film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt for release starting Christmas Day, December 25th, 2015, later this year. And Lionsgate has scheduled Denis Villeneuve's new crime thriller Sicario with Emily Blunt for release on September 18th, 2015 later this fall. We also suggest keeping an eye on Me & Earl & the Dying Girl, which will likely arrive with quite a bit of pomp & circumstance in theaters this July, expanding in limited release throughout the summer.
