AMC Theatres will screen Stephen Bannon’s Sarah Palin documentary “The Undefeated,” with a July 15 launch slated for markets such as Dallas, Denver, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Atlanta, Orange County, Phoenix, Houston, Indianapolis, and Kansas City.
Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp., which specializes in digital delivery to theaters, is managing the theatrical release, and ARC Entertainment has taken on worldwide distribution responsibilities for the project.
Bannon said one-night screenings of the movie are being planned for Iowa later this month, as well as one-night premieres in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. All are early voting states.
The film, inspired by Palin’s book “Going Rogue,” portrays her as a hero in the conservative movement, and the word that it was produced helped trigger a new round of speculation that she would get into the presidential race. Her team was aware of the project, and she has given it her blessing but was not part of the production.
The documentary was written and directed by Bannon and is produced by Glenn Bracken Evans and Dan Fleuette. It is independently financed by Victory Film Group.
