The distributor was set to open the film in three weeks.

A24 was set to have audiences take the plunge with Under the Silver Lake in three weeks, but the distributor has pushed the film from its June 22 release back six months to December.

The neo-noir will now open Dec. 7, a date that is only occupied by one other project: Mary Queen of Scots, starring Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan. 

David Robert Mitchell, known for horror title It Follows, wrote and directed Silver Lake. The film stars Andrew Garfield as an L.A. resident who, after a one-night fling with a neighbor, wakes up the next day to find her missing.

The feature premiered in competition at the recebt Cannes Film Festival to lukewarm reviews, with THR's David Rooney writing that "despite a compelling lead in Andrew Garfield, the tension dissipates rather than mounts as this knotty neo-noir slides into a Lynchian swamp of outre weirdness."
