Halle Berry‘s long-awaited ‘Kidnap’ has finally secured a new release date.
After spending two years in limbo because of financial issues caused by its parent studio Relativity, the thriller will arrive on August 4th.
Industry insiders fear that the serially-delayed release may not fare as well as it should because of its pushback.
Fortunately, the project is said to have tested quite well among African American audiences and is now being backed by a newly-formed distribution company named Aviron Pictures built by David Dinerstein, formerly of Paramount Classics and Fox Searchlight.
Unfamiliar with its plot?
A single mother named Karla McCoy (Halle Berry) lives a perfect life with her young son Frankie (Sage Correa). One day, upon entering a local park, Karla sees her son suddenly being abducted out of the blue by a kidnapper. To save Frankie from being taken, Karla goes out on a mission to demand people in the city to help rescue her son.
Lifetime movie. It will flop because it looks very low budget and one-dimensional / made for tv.
Depending on how they play up the film previews can determine how well it will do? Add more dramatics and suspense and you will get more people into the movie.
They need to stop fuckingg with my girls Halle’s career, This movie could’ve been huge had they released it when it had all that Social Media momentum a year ago! Its trailer was circulating everywhere I looked…. Now they want to release it… They are going to have to promote heavily and undo the damage that was done with this crazy long push back.. It looks good, But stop playing with peoples emotions
