Luca Guadagnino’s reboot of Dario Argento’s Supiria will hit movie theaters on Nov. 2. The horror ballet pic was one of the signature reels at Amazon Studios’ CinemaCon luncheon and follows an aspiring dancer from America (Dakota Johnson) who joins a renowned German dance troupe during 1970s Berlin — and it’s not a pretty time. Tilda Swinton plays the artistic director, and Lutz Ebersdorf the grieving psychotherapist in this gonzo nightmare. Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth and Jessica Harper also star.
Nov. 2 is a key date for launching awards bait with such recent Oscar fare as Lady Bird and Theory of Everything launching there. It would be a shocker not to see this title at Venice or Toronto this fall. Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name received four Oscar nominations including picture, lead actor (Timothee Chalamet), original song, adapted screenplay with James Ivory winning for the latter.
