'Suspiria' Lands Fall Awards Release Date in Theaters
Charting its plans for awards season, Amazon Studios will open filmmaker Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria on Nov. 2.
The remake of the 1977 Italian horror film stars Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz. The story is set in a dance academy where ominous and sadistic forces are at play. Swinton plays the artistic director of a world-renowned dance company where a young American (Johnson) has arrived to study. Mia Goth and Jessica Harper co-star.
Amazon Studios will self-distribute Suspiria in theaters before it is made available to Amazon Prime members.
The remake is Gaudagnino's follow-up to Call Me by Your Name, the Oscar-nominated drama starring Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer.
At CinemaCon last month, Amazon Studios shared exclusive footage of Suspiria showing a gruesome scene in which a young dancer's body is torn apart as she dances.
