Russell Crowe's 'Unhinged' Moved to Late July Amid Pandemic

Unhinged is on the move again…

Solstice Studios announced this afternoon that the Russell Crowe starring movie will be moving back to a late July release amid fears that the pandemic will have another spike.

The film was set to be the first movie back in theaters as they prepare to reopen, however, as fears loom of the coronavirus having another spike, the studio decided to delay the premiere just a few more weeks.

Here’s the official Unhinged summary: After a confrontation with an unstable man at an intersection, a woman becomes the target of his rage.

In a recent interview, Russell opened up about Unhinged being the first major movie back in theaters.

“Outside of seeing family and friends that people hadn’t seen, the No. 1 thing they wanted to do was go to the cinema. The type of movie that they wanted to see.. I would have assumed comedy, I would have assumed love story, but the top genre on the list was thriller,” he shared.

Russell added, “In a way I think it’s a little bit of perverse human self-preservation. We want to go back to that place we’re familiar with, in that safe room where all the crazy stuff just happens on the screen. Not actually in our lives.”

Unhinged will be in theaters on July 31.

'Unhinged' Is First Movie Back From Quarantine & It's In Theaters July 1

Russell Crowe‘s thriller Unhinged is planning to release in theaters on July 1, despite the fact that some regions may not have movie theaters open at that point due to different shelter-in-place restrictions across the country.

Texas theaters are currently open, but markets like New York City and Los Angeles remain unclear. The press release states that the film will be released “in accordance with state public health department safety guidelines.”

The film is a timely psychological thriller that explores the fragile balance of a society pushed to the edge, taking something we’ve all experienced- road rage – to an unpredictable and terrifying conclusion. Rachel (Caren Pistorius) is running late to work when she has an altercation at a traffic light with a stranger (Crowe) whose life has left him feeling powerless and invisible. Soon, Rachel finds herself and everyone she loves the target of a man who decides to make one last mark upon the world by teaching her a series of deadly lessons. What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse that proves you never know just how close you are to someone who is about to become unhinged.

“If there are places where density is a factor and theaters aren’t open, that’s okay,” producer Mark Gill said about the decision to open the film (via Variety). “It might be that theaters are closed in New York City or Chicago or San Francisco, but less populated cities and suburbs will be open and we expect there to be a lot of pent-up demand.”

Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet is the next film slated after Unhinged, and is currently scheduled for July 17.
