Finally! Woody Allen’s Long Delayed “Rainy Day in New York” Will Be Released in the US Starting in October


Woody Allen’s long-delayed “A Rainy Day in New York” will hit select U.S. theaters next month, MPI Media Group and Signature Entertainment announced Thursday.

The film, starring starring Timothée Chalamet, Selena Gomez and Elle Fanning, will open on October 9 in at least three Landmark theaters in Chicago, Boston and Atlanta before expanding the following week.

Signature released “A Rainy Day in New York” digitially on June 5 in the U.K. and has set a July 27 home video and DVD release. But the distributor had also previously acquired the film’s North American rights in hopes of doing a domestic release this fall.

It’s about time. Here’s my review from last August: click here.

“Rainy Day” will then be eligible for Oscars. Cherry Jones is absolutely a Best Supporting Actress nominee, and Chalamet should be considered for Best Actor. They are that good.
