Red One confirms release date. The film stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Chris Evans in key roles. It has been marketed as an action-adventure Christmas film that takes viewers on a global tour.
Red One: Cast And Release Date
Jake Kasdan (Jumanji) is directing the film. It is based on a script written by Chris Morgan, the writer of Hobbs & Shaw and Fast & Furious. Oscar winner J.K. Simmons, Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Liu, Bonnie Hunt, Kristofer Hivju, Nick Kroll, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, and Wesley Kimmel are among the film’s cast members. The much-anticipated holiday film starring Johnson and Evans now has a release date. Deadline reports that it will debut in theatres on November 15, 2024. Before being exclusively available on Prime Video for streaming at a later time, the film will first debut in theaters.
More About Chris Evans And The Rock’s Action Movie
Johnson described the film in an Instagram post: “Our movie is a big, fun, action packed and fresh new take on Christmas. Think JUMANJI meets MIRACLE ON 34TH ST meets HOBBS & SHAW with a dash of HARRY POTTER and sprinkled on top with my all-time favorite Christmas movie, ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE…”
Amazon MGM is handling distribution for the film, which will follow the studio’s current release schedule. Amazon purchased MGM in 2021. However, as of late, the studio has started releasing films in theaters first, with Prime Video streaming availability coming later. Two films that have found success with this tactic are Ben Affleck’s Air and Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn. The latter will be available on Prime Video on December 22. Red One will now carry out the studio’s strategy of initially releasing films in theaters before Prime Video streaming.
The Christmas-themed Red One, which opens in theaters on November 15, is an attempt to cash in on the traditionally lucrative pre-Thanksgiving phase of the holiday season. But Red One will have some serious competition this holiday season from The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, a different holiday film, and Alto Knights, Robert De Niro’s mafia film, both of which open on November 15. Red One plans to start a holiday mythology reinvention series, but it will rely on how well the film does during the 2024 holiday season on Prime Video and in cinemas.
