Woody Allen’s Delayed “Rainy Day in New York” Set for Opening in 16 Countries, Beginning End of This Month


The world wants to see more Woody Allen movies, kids.

“A Rainy Day in New York,” delayed by a $68 million lawsuit against Amazon, starts rolling out internationally in 10 days, 16 countries.

First stop is Poland on July 26th, then Lithuania on August 2nd. Coming right after that are Greece, Netherlands, Turkey, France, Italy, Belgium, Spain and Italy among others.

Only the US and UK aren’t settled yet, but they should be soon. “Rainy Day” stars Timothee Chalamet, Jude Law, Elle Fanning, and Rebecca Hall. Hall as so far been supportive of Woody, they worked together famously on “Vicki Cristina Barcelona.” My guess is the others will wait to see what the reviews are before deciding if they want to support Woody, too.

Allen is currently shooting a new film in Spain starring Christoph Waltz, Gina Gershon, Wally Shawn, and Louis Garrell.

PS Let’s hope they show “Rainy Day” in Toronto, at least for the press.
