What’s on Regal’s new line of cinema?
Regal is rolling out its next-generation film slate to its cinema exhibitors this month, including a line of digital-only films from Sony, Netflix, and HBO.
The company will debut “Lincoln,” starring James Franco, on October 23 and 24 at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The film is the latest in Regal Cinema’s line of titles that allow users to “play” movies and watch them later without having to download the entire movie.
Regal says the new offerings will complement the existing Regal Cinemas’ offerings, which feature more than 1,300 films.
Regals new digital offerings include “A Christmas Carol,” starring Matthew McConaughey and Kristen Stewart, which opens on November 16; “The Great Gatsby,” starring Robert Redford, on November 22; “Kramer vs. Kramer,” starring Richard Gere and Amy Poehler, on December 11; and “The Princess Bride,” starring Billy Crystal and Kristen Wiig, on February 12.
Regalist will also offer “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” on January 12 and “Lights Out” on February 13.
Regala will launch its new digital service, Regal MoviePass, on March 14.
Regaltalk’s new digital-access feature allows users to view the films on their mobile devices, and is available for free in all U.S. theaters.
Regalia says it is “actively exploring ways to introduce Regal films to new audiences in digital format.”
Regal will release a new slate of films each month for the next five years, and has already signed deals with Universal Pictures and AMC Studios for digital releases.
The digital offerings will be available in select U.K. theaters starting in May, with more films coming to U. S. theaters beginning in 2019.
