Recommended Posts

Universal Pictures retains domestic rights to the prospective awards contender.

News of the World is heading around the world via Netflix.

The streamer is closing on a deal for the international distribution rights to the Hanks-starrer, with Universal Pictures still holding domestic rights.

Universal has a December 25 release date in North America, with the movie expected to be a player in this year's awards season.

While the deal is not done yet, it is similar to other deals made by the streamer for studio fare including the international rights for Paramount Animation'sย The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run.

The Paul Greengrass film follows Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, a veteran of three wars, who now moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller.ย In Texas, he crosses paths with Johanna, a 10-year-old taken in by the Kiowa people six years earlier and raised as one of their own. The pair embark on a journey when Kidd agrees to deliver the child where the law says she belongs.
