Apple Original Films Teams Up with Sony Pictures for Blockbuster Theatrical Releases

Apple Original Films has forged a strategic alliance with Sony Pictures Entertainment, marking a departure from the streaming norm to bring two highly anticipated star-studded movies to global cinemas. With the success of Ridley Scott’s Napoleon, this powerful partnership is gearing up for the theatrical release of Project Artemis and Wolfs, promising audiences an immersive big-screen experience.

Exclusive Theatrical Run before Apple TV+ Premiere

Breaking away from the streaming trend, Apple Original Films and Sony Pictures opt for a traditional theatrical distribution plan. Project Artemis and Wolfs are set to grace the silver screen before making their digital debut on Apple TV+, following the industry standard of a 45-day gap between theatrical and streaming releases.

Anticipated to hit cinemas in 2024, the dynamic duo is poised to be cinematic highlights, featuring superb ensemble casts and creative talents behind the scenes.

Wolfs: Clooney, Pitt, and a Lone Wolf Mission

Directed by Jon Watts, Wolfs promises a riveting story with George Clooney and Brad Pitt as two lone wolf fixers on a singular mission. Amy Ryan’s inclusion adds an intriguing layer of mystery. Produced by Smokehouse Pictures and Plan B Entertainment, Wolfs is set to be a cinematic classic.

Project Artemis: Johansson, Tatum, and a Mystery Unveiled

Directed by Greg Berlanti, Project Artemis features Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum, shrouded in mystery to heighten fan interest. Produced by These Pictures and Berlanti Productions, Project Artemis aims to push narrative boundaries.

Apple Original Films’ Theatrical and Streaming Odyssey

This collaboration aligns with Apple Original Films’ strategy to establish a strong presence in both theatrical and streaming markets. Starting with Martin Scorsese’s acclaimed Killers of the Flower Moon, Apple’s foray into the film industry gained momentum with the success of Napoleon, grossing over $170 million worldwide. Making history with the Academy Award for Best Picture with CODA, Apple’s commitment to high-quality content receives industry recognition.

The partnership with Sony Pictures reinforces Apple Original Films as a major player in the film industry, blending historic successes with a dedication to delivering compelling cinematic experiences.
