Remember The Woman in the Window? Once a hot property and potential Oscar player for Fox 2000, the buzzy title has been shuffled around so often that most people at this point likely thought it had already been released and forgotten about.
That, of course, is not the case, as Netflix is here to remind us with a new trailer for the film’s May 14th release. The streamer purchased the distribution rights for the film from Disney after the COVID pandemic delayed its release, and the Mouse House wanted to focus on other priorities.
With recent reports detailing how Fox was unhappy with its test screenings to the point where they brought in Tony Gilroy to write entirely new scenes, the writing seems to be on the wall for The Woman in the Window.
It’s a shame, as on paper the film has a lot of promise. Based on the best-selling novel, Amy Adams stars as an agoraphobic woman who believes she sees a violent crime happen across the street, sending her on a journey to figure out what exactly happened, and who is telling the truth.
The film is directed by Joe Wright, his first feature since The Darkest Hour won multiple Oscars including Best Actor for Gary Oldman. Oldman reunites with the director for The Woman in the Window, which also co-stars Anthony Mackie, Wyatt Russell, Bryan Tyree Henry, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tracy Letts, and Julianne Moore.
