Mark your calendars: release dates for the Charlize Theron-toplined “Tully” and the Brie Larson-starrer “The Glass Castle” have been announced. Variety writes that “Glass Castle,” an adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ 2005 memoir, will hit theaters August 11. “Tully,” Theron’s second collaboration with writing-directing team Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman, will bow April 20, 2018, Deadline reports.
Shot in West Virginia, “The Glass Castle” revolves around the dysfunctional Walls family as they face poverty, addiction, mental health issues, and skirmishes with the law. Larson portrays Jeannette Walls as an adult, while Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson (“Hunger Games” franchise) play her parents, Rose Mary and Rex. “Glass Castle” also stars Sarah Snook (“The Dressmaker”), Ella Anderson (“The Boss”), and Max Greenfield (“New Girl”).
The comedic drama sees Larson reuniting with her “Short Term 12” director, Destin Daniel Cretton, who wrote the script with Andrew Lanham. IMDb also lists “UnREAL’s” Marti Noxon as a screenwriter. Noxon wrote a previous draft of the script when Jennifer Lawrence was attached to the project, but it’s unclear how much of a role Noxon played once Lanham came on board.
Lionsgate will release “The Glass Castle” on August 11, a weekend that in recent years has been dominated by Meryl Streep. Films like “Florence Foster Jenkins,” “Ricki and the Flash,” “The Giver,” “Hope Springs,” and “Julie & Julia” all had early August openings, and Streep eventually received Oscar nods for “Florence” and “Julie & Julia.” An August 11 premiere could mean good things for Larson come awards season.
Meanwhile, “Tully” centers on Marlo (Theron), a mother of three, and her night nanny, Tully (Mackenzie Davis, “Halt and Catch Fire”). “Hesitant to the extravagance at first,” Deadline details, “Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny.”
Theron last collaborated with “Tully” screenwriter Cody and director Reitman on 2011’s “Young Adult,” a dark comedy about an emotionally-stunted woman in her 30s (Theron) who decides to win back her high school sweetheart.
You can next catch Theron in “Atomic Blonde,” in theaters July 28. The Oscar winner plays Lorraine Broughton, an undercover MI6 agent working in Berlin during the Cold War. The action-thriller is based on “The Coldest City,” a graphic novel by Antony Johnston and Sam Hart.
Larson can currently be seen in theaters in the action pics “Free Fire” and “Kong: Skull Island.” The “Room” actress’ directorial debut, “Unicorn Store” is currently in post-production, but a release date hasn’t been announced just yet. The Oscar winner will star as Carol Danvers in 2019’s “Captain Marvel,”which will be helmed by “Half Nelson’s” Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.

Sony Music Masterworks has released The Space Between Us – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and physically on CD. The album will also release on vinyl at a later date. The album features original songs by Ingrid Michaelson and the movie’s original score by Andrew Lockington (San Andreas, Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters).
The score was comprised of orchestral elements and salvaged items from junk yards to create unique sounds catered to the film’s story. This process of “upcycling” was in line with the film’s message about celebrating the beauty of our planet.
“I loved working with Peter [Chelsom, the director] and Richard [Lewis, producer]. They had a real vision as to what they wanted but also allowed me lots of freedom within that vision. It was a lot of fun to be a part of the movie from such an early stage,” remarks Ingrid Michaelson.

The album is now streaming on Spotify. »

Everyone talks about Meryl Streep’s record-setting number of Academy Award nominations, but perhaps even more impressive is the number of Golden Globe Award nominations she’s received: 30, as of this year, with her latest nod for Florence Foster Jenkins.
In fact, the Hollywood Foreign Press seems to be so enamored with Streep that they’ll give her a nomination for pretty much anything (even Mamma Mia!). And now, they’re finally giving her the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in motion pictures.
In honor of Streep’s incredible feat — only Jack Lemmon has even come close, with »
