ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png

The holiday movie season kicks off today with a couple of big studio debuts. Disney brings us Strange World, Sony premieres Devotion, and Universal expands The Fabelmans to more theaters. MGM’s Bones and All also goes wide, and several indies go to theaters this weekend as well.

The films listed are from studios other than the “Big Five” - Universal Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros., Walt Disney Pictures, and Columbia Pictures. Note that some of the movies listed are in their first week or two of limited release in the USA, so it may take them a few more weeks (or months) to show up in your local arthouse theater or on VOD.
