Wes Anderson’s “French Report” missed this year’s Oscar. According to Indywire, while they want to hold 2021 Academy Awards in April, films can compete in this year’s competition, screened until February 28.
Tenet failed to bring audiences to American theaters. It looks like they will see fewer films on screen this year. New York and Los Angeles cinemas have not yet reopened.
“The French Report” by Wes Anderson is one of the films that they do not include in the films’ list. Disney and Sunlight release these movies. While the producers scheduled to screen the film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, they initially postponed this festival to October 2020 due to the corona outbreak and eventually removed it from Disney’s release calendar.
The film stars Bencio Del Toro, Adrienne Brody, Timothy Shalame, Tilda Swinton, Francis McDormand, Jeffrey Wright, Bill Murray, and Owen Wilson.
Wes Anderson is the producer of “The Grand Hotel Budapest,” which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and received nine Academy Award nominations. Although they planned to screen the film at the 2021 Berlinale, it will be screened at Cannes 2021 for the first time because it was shot in France.
Several films’ release timing is not yet exact, including “The Displaced,” which was a success in Venice and Toronto. Steelewater, directed by Tom McCarthy, the hit film Spotlight maker, also has an uncertain fate.
They also scheduled to release “It’s Not Time to Die” from the James Bond series, Danny Villeneuve’s “Dune” and Paul Greengrass’s “World News” starring Tom Hanks for the New Year holidays and Hollywood is waiting to see how they work.
