Regina King's Directorial Debut, 'One Night in Miami,' to Get Theatrical Release Ahead of Amazon Debut

Regina King made her directorial debut with the upcoming movie One Night in Miami and now the film’s release plan has been revealed!

The movie had its festival debut last month and earned rave reviews, cementing its status as a frontrunner for the upcoming awards season. Regina could become the first Black woman to be nominated for Best Director at the Oscars, just two years after she won for acting.

One Night in Miami will open in select theaters on December 25, 2020 and then it will begin streaming on Amazon Prime Video on January 15, 2021.

As Variety reports, the movie “tells a fictional account of one incredible evening, in which Muhammad Ali (Eli Goree), Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge), Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr.) and Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir) gather after Ali defeated Sonny Liston in February 1964.”

Regina said in a statement, “To complete and release a film within the same year is a difficult task. We welcomed the challenge because we knew now was the time for this film to be released. Amazon fully supported our intention and I could not be more excited this prescient story will be seen across the globe.”

Just a couple weeks ago, Regina achieved something pretty awesome!
