Broad Green Pictures made the announcement Tuesday, a week before the world premiere of the movie at the Cannes film Festival. Broad Green is handling the home entertainment windows for the horror-thriller before the film premieres on Amazon Prime.
The film premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on May 20 in competition. Nicolas Winding Refn directed from a script he wrote with Mary Laws and Polly Stenham, centered on aspiring model in Los Angeles whose beauty and youth place in her danger from a group of beauty-obsessed women who will use any means necessary to get what she has.
Refn’s “Drive” and “Only God Forgives” also competed at Cannes for the Palme d’Or. The cast of “Neon Demon” includes Karl Glusman, Jena Malone, Bella Heathcote, Abbey Lee, Christina Hendricks and Keanu Reeves.
Producers are Lene Børglum, Sidonie Dumas and Vincent Maraval. Amazon acquired the rights in November.

On June, 10, a couple of nights before “Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese” dropped on Netflix, I attended an event for the movie following its premiere at Lincoln Center. At the party, I got to sample reactions to the revelation that roughly 10 minutes of Scorsese’s back-to-the-’70s rock doc consists [...]
In more ways than one, “Fausto” is a film that likes to keep its audience in the dark: The bulk of its imagery is thickly cloaked in velvety night, often barely illuminated but for pinpricks of moonlight or a flickering candle, sometimes to the point where viewers must strain and squint to identify what they’re [...]
By now, audiences have caught on to the way American distributors tend to stockpile their quality movies for end-of-year award-season release, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t treasures to be found in the first two quarters. In fact, sometimes it’s the movies that aren’t making a self-important Oscar push that wind up hitting closest to [...]
