A24 and Curzon Artificial Eye will jointly release Josh and Benny Safdie’s Good Time in the UK.
The crime thriller, which stars Robert Pattinson, has been given a release date of November 3.
Premiering in competition at Cannes Film Festival in May this year, the film had a limited released in the US on August 11, grossing $400,000 to date, and is set to go wide today (Aug 25).
The deal takes Curzon’s slate of titles from this year’s Cannes competition to eight, including best screenplay winner The Killing Of A Sacred Deer and Palme d’Or winnerThe Square.
A24’s recent activity in the UK has included releasing Sundance hit A Ghost Story in partnership with Picturehouse, and the Oscar-winner Moonlight in partnership with Altitude.
Louisa Dent, managing director of Curzon Artificial Eye, said on the Good Time deal: “We were blown away when we saw Good Time in Cannes, so of course we are tremendously excited to be partnering with A24 on the UK release.
“Josh and Benny have created a propulsive, gripping thriller and Robert Pattinson’s central performance is truly something to behold. Likewise we are delighted to be working with A24. Their productions have been strong favourites within the company and with Curzon customers alike.”
A24 added in a statement: “We are thrilled to be furthering our direct distribution in the UK with the upcoming release of Good Time. This is exactly the kind of film A24 was designed to do—a bold, original, and exhilarating vision, created by two of the most talented filmmakers working today.
“We could not be more proud to bring it to the UK market, and are delighted to be partnering with our friends at Curzon, who are among the smartest and most accomplished distributors in the UK”
