Megalopolis Release Date Set as Francis Ford Coppola Movie Finds Distributor

A release date for Francis Ford Coppola’s Megalopolis has been set.

Announced in a press release, Lionsgate Studios has officially acquired Copoola’s new epic Megalopolis. The film will be released in United States theaters and in IMAX on September 27, 2024.

Lionsgate Motion Picture Group’s Adam Fogelson said of Megalopolis, “Francis is a legend. For many of us, his gifts to cinema were one of the inspirations to devote our own careers to film. It is a true privilege to work with him, and to bring this incredible, audacious, and utterly unique movie to theatrical audiences. At Lionsgate, we strive to be a home for bold and daring artists, and Megalopolis proves there is no one more bold or daring than the maestro, Francis Ford Coppola.”

Coppola added, “One rule of business I’ve always followed and prioritized (to my benefit) is to continue working with companies and teams who over time have proven to be good friends as well as great collaborators. This is why I am thrilled to have Adam Fogelson and Lionsgate Studios release Megalopolis. I am confident they will apply the same tender love and care given to Apocalypse Now, which is currently in its 45th year of astounding revenue and appreciation.”

What do we know about Francis Ford Coppola’s Megalopolis?

Megalopolis stars Adam Driver, Giancarlo Esposito, Nathalie Emmanuel, Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Jon Voight, Laurence Fishburne, Talia Shire, Jason Schwartzman, Kathryn Hunter, Grace VanderWaal, Chloe Fineman, James Remar, D.B. Sweeney, and Dustin Hoffman.

“Megalopolis is a Roman Epic fable set in an imagined Modern America,” the synopsis reads. “The City of New Rome must change, causing conflict between Cesar Catilina, a genius artist who seeks to leap into a utopian, idealistic future, and his opposition, Mayor Franklyn Cicero, who remains committed to a regressive status quo, perpetuating greed, special interests, and partisan warfare. Torn between them is socialite Julia Cicero, the mayor’s daughter, whose love for Cesar has divided her loyalties, forcing her to discover what she truly believes humanity deserves.”

Megalopolis premiered at the 77th Cannes Film Festival this past May, where it was met with mixed reviews from critics. Coppola spent around $120 million of his own money to fund the film.
