Angelina Jolie Explains How Netflix Benefits Her New Movie

Angelina Jolie is joined by her First They Killed My Father team at the Variety Studio during the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival on Monday (September 11) in Toronto, Canada.

The 42-year-old director gave an interview alongside the film’s young stars Mun Kimhak and Sareum Srey Moch, writer Loung Ung, and producer Rithy Panh.

Later that day, Angelina participated in a discussion with Rithy on stage in front of a live audience.

At the Variety Studio, presented by AT&T at DIRECTV at Momofuku Toronto, Angelina opened up about the benefits of her movie being released on Netflix.

“A lot of foreign films have very small theatrical releases and the theatrical release we have is solid for a foreign film. It actually in some ways been given even more because we had such a strong premiere in Cambodia and the push and ability to have it across the states,” Angelina told Variety. “For foreign films, I think it can help reach a bigger audience to have both in theaters and to stream.”

    Angelina Jolie’s Netflix Movie ‘First They Killed My Father’ to Get Theatrical Release

    Following standing ovations and rave reviews out of the Telluride Film Festival, Angelina Jolie’s “First They Killed My Father” will open theatrically on September 15 in the top 10 markets, the same day that it launches globally on Netflix.

    Before that, it is set to screen at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday. On Sunday, Jolie joined TIFF’s Artistic Director Cameron Bailey on stage for an “In Conversation With…,” discussing her career and the film.

    “First They Killed My Father” will open in the following theaters:

    Los Angeles – The Landmark
    New York City – Lincoln Plaza Cinemas, iPic at Fulton Street Theaters
    Atlanta – Landmark’s Midtown Art Cinema
    Boston – Landmark’s Kendall Square Cinemas
    Chicago – Landmark’s Century Centre
    Dallas – Landmark’s Magnolia Theatre
    Philadelphia – Landmark’s Ritz Bourse
    San Francisco – Landmark’s Embarcadero Center Cinema
    Washington D.C.- Landmark’s E Street Cinema
    Seattle – Landmark’s Crest Cinema Centre

    This is a big move for Netflix, given that most theater chains had refused to screen Netflix’s “Beasts of No Nation” in 2015 when it announced a day-and-date release. iPic screened “The Little Prince” in its theaters last year, and later inked a deal with the streaming platform to release its films in theaters on the same day they are made available online.

    With more theater chains agreeing to screen a Netflix film via a day-and-date release, Netflix might have finally found a partner that theater owners can’t say no to.

    Jolie directed the film adaptation of Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung’s memoir of surviving the deadly Khmer Rouge regime from 1975 to 1978. The story is told through her eyes, from age five, when the Khmer Rouge came to power, to nine years old.

    “First They Killed My Father” was written by Jolie and Ung and produced by Jolie and acclaimed Cambodian director and producer Rithy Panh.

    I’m sure if she was bothered by it, then she’d get some new clothes. She’s probably learned, it’s best to dress that way with brothers and sisters that don’t care that you’re a girl. LOL

  • sandra

    BDB lol I forgot the name. PT is the best to put names.

  • Observer2

    She really is.

    WTF is up with the all white clothing? Her children must be confused since she dressed like Morticia for 10 years. This woman is the biggest fucking manipulative narcissist in the world. She’s clearly in love with herself.
