With Dune: Part Two moving off of Nov. 3, it creates more breathing room for other movies and availability of theaters. And, true, it’s also the last weekend ‘official’ weekend of the Taylor Swift: Eras Concert movie.
Talent and creators of the film including Coppola, Cailee Spaeny and Jacob Elordi are now cleared to promote the film since it was granted a SAG-AFTRA Interim Agreement ahead of its world premiere.
The movie stars Cailee Spaeny as Priscilla and Jacob Elordi as Elvis. Coppola adapted the memoir. Producers are Coppola, Lorenzo Mieli and Youree Henley. EPs are Roman Coppola, Chris Hatcher, Fred Roos, and Presley.
A24 had a dynamite opening night here at TIFF as Dicks the Musical brought down the house with wall-to-wall laughs at the Midnight Madness screening, complete with gospel singers singing perverted songs about God, and flying inflated projectile penile objects. The Larry Charles directed movie saw its stars/scribes Josh Sharp and Aaron Jackson show up, along with star Bowen Yang, after the pic landed a SAG-AFTRA interim agreement.
