A24 Acquires Toronto Midnight Madness Horror Film ‘Saint Maud’

  • The Wrap
A24 has acquired the North American rights to “Saint Maud,” a psychological horror film that made its world premiere in Tiff’s Midnight Madness program, an individual with knowledge of the deal told TheWrap.

“Saint Maud” is the first feature film from British writer-director Rose Glass, whose previous work includes the short “Room 55.” It next makes its U.S. premiere at Fantastic Fest on Sept. 19. No release date has yet been set. It will also be playing next month in competition at the BFI London Film Festival.

“Saint Maud” follows a pious but unstable nurse, Maud, who becomes convinced that she must save the soul of her dying employer, Amanda, as signs of eternal damnation begin to present themselves in their isolated seaside town. The film nods to other religious horror films, most notably “The Exorcist,” among others.

Happy September, dear readers! The best time of the year is upon us, where the weather is getting cooler, kids are back in school, and we have a brand new batch of movies to get excited about coming to both the big and small screens throughout the next few months.

Jessica Chastain on Making ‘It: Chapter Two,’ Singing in Upcoming Tammy Faye Bakker Biopic
Jessica Chastain is a prankster.

When I sat down with her and her “It: Chapter Two” co-star Sophia Lillis for this week’s “The Big Ticket” podcast, Chastain warned me that there was someone under the table who was going to try to scare me during the interview.

I will admit I was on edge the entire time we chatted. But then, as we wrapped things up, the Oscar nominee smiled. “There’s no one under the table.”

We all had a good laugh. And it wasn’t the only laugh of the afternoon.

Just try asking about the gallons of fake blood used in the movie. “It was really gross,” Chastain said. “It was slimy.” She paused, though, because she said didn’t want to compare it to something that may not be suitable for Lillis’ young ears.

“They used homemade lube for it,” Lillis interjected.

Annapurna: 5 Films That Tell Its Financial Story, From ‘Detroit’ to ‘Bernadette’

Annapurna: 5 Films That Tell Its Financial Story, From ‘Detroit’ to ‘Bernadette’
Armed with great taste and deep pockets, Megan Ellison was the patron cinephiles needed when she founded Annapurna Pictures in 2011. Eight years on, Annapurna has delivered when it comes to getting directors’ dream projects before the masses. Her filmography includes “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Her,” “American Hustle,” “The Master,” “The Grandmaster,” and “Phantom Thread.” Last year alone, the company’s films won two Oscars and were nominated for 12 others.

But the Ellison formula hasn’t worked for the bottom line. The real trouble began two years ago, when the company expanded its founding mission of producing and financing films to include marketing and distribution. Like other producer-financiers from Bob Yari (“Crash”) to Broad Green’s Wall Street billionaire founders, Ellison started a distribution company in order to keep a bigger share of the money from theaters.

Prioritizing a wide-release strategy, Annapurna has burned through tens of millions and is reportedly facing Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Can Annapurna Survive Its Current Financial Woes And Avoid Bankruptcy?

Annapurna started off in 2011 as a mechanism for Megan Ellison, daughter of Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison, to invest in and produce films she felt passionate about. Film such as “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Her,” “American Hustle,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Master,” “Sausage Party” and “Spring Breakers,” among others. Not all of them were financial successes, but enough were. And they led to a slew of Oscar nominations including four Best Picture nominations.
