‘Anora’ Cannes Palme D’Or Winner Lands Fall Release

NEON has dated their fifth Cannes Palme D’Or winner Anora for Oct. 18 per Comscore in what will be a limited release.

October is the traditional launch pad for NEON with their Palme D’Or winning fare including 2019’s ultimate Oscar Best Picture winner Parasite (Oct. 11), 2021’s Titane (Oct 1), 2022’s Triangle of Sadness (Oct. 7), and last year’s Oscar winner Anatomy of a Fall (Oct. 13). Of the five, and granted it was pre-pandemic, Bong Joon-Ho’s Parasite did the best at the domestic B.O. with $53.3M, arguably the fourth highest grossing foreign language (and foreign produced) movie stateside after Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Life Is Beautiful and Zhang Yimou’s Hero.

Anora follows a high class stripper from Brooklyn, played by Better Things‘ Mikey Madison, who falls in love and soon marries a Russian oligarch’s son. The family has problems with her and complications ensue. Some critics have compared the movie to the Julia Roberts classic blockbuster Pretty Woman. Anora came out of Cannes with a 98% fresh Rotten Tomatoes rating with critics. Mark Eydelshteyn and Yura Borisov also star.

Anatomy of a Fall ended its domestic run at $5M, while Triangle of Sadness finaled at $4.6M and Titane at $1.4M. Baker’s highest grossing movie to date stateside is 2017’s The Florida Project at $5.9M.
