Woody Allen’s 50th film, Coup de Chance, gets an April release date in the US after being picked up by MPI Media Group.
Woody Allen Coup de Chance premiered at the Venice International Film Festival last September, and THR reports that MPI Media Group will release the film in the US on April 5thfollowed by a Digital / VOD release on April 12th.
The film is Woody Allen’s 50th theatrical release and has already made the rounds in many European markets. The official summary reads: “The ideal couple of Fanny and Jean has everything: accomplished in their professional lives, they live in a magnificent apartment in the beautiful districts of Paris and they seem to be in love as ‘ first day. But when Fanny crosses, by chance, Alain, who was a friend from high school, she is immediately captivated. They see each other again very quickly and become closer and closer.” The film features Lou de Laâge (Ball of Mad Women) as Fanny, Niels Schneider (Sybil) as Alain and Melvil Poupaud (In bed with Victoria) as Jane.
Coup de Chancewhich translates to “stroke of luck” in English, it received very positive reviews when it was released at the Venice Film Festival last year, but I would imagine that not everyone wants take a look at Allen’s latest film thanks to the sexual abuse allegations that have been swirling around him. it got more and more attention over the years.
Although Woody Allen may not be retiring yet, the director is not as prolific as he once was, and many mainstream actors have now refused to work with him. However, he has denied that he was fired. “I don’t know what it means to be suspended,” Allen told Variety last year. “I know that everything has been the same for me over the years. I make my films. What has changed is the presentation of the films. You know, I work and it’s the only routine for me. I write the script, raise the money, make the film, shoot it, edit it, it comes out. The difference is not from a cancellation culture. The difference is how they present the films. That is the big change.“
