“THE GREEN INFERNO” To Consume Audiences September 25thMovies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
After nearly a year since the film was abruptly pulled from cinemas, Eli Roth’s cannibal opus THE GREEN INFERNO will see the light of day after all. Roth made the official announcement earlier today, detailing that the film will see a 1,000 theater release and a digital marketing platform (much akin to the expanded release of IT FOLLOWS) via Blumhouse Productions, who will team with Universal Pictures and High Top Releasing to distribute the film via Blumhouse’s BH Tilt label. This will also guarantee that THE GREEN INFERNO will hit theaters before Roth’s Sundance chiller KNOCK KNOCK, which Lionsgate aims to release later this year as well.
The release deal marks a big win for both Jason Blum and Roth, with the former earning Roth’s strong brand name behind the release while the latter gets his film, which allegedly earned an R without having to make any cuts to its ultra-gory original presentation, a wide release. FANGO was a big fan of the film during its festival run. Hopefully, you will too when the film hits theaters on September 25th.
