The film will now get a theatrical release along with its previously announced video-on-demand release at the end of this week on April 19, distributor Screen Media announced Monday. “Don Quixote” was at first only available to be seen as part of a one-night-only theatrical event on April 10 from Fathom Events, but the success of that screening prompted a wider theatrical release.
“The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” will roll out in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin, Texas and other top markets starting April 19. The film will also be released on all major VOD platforms on the 19th as well and will continue to expand theatrically throughout the spring and beyond.

In an interview with TheWrap,
Previously, December 17: Screen Media has picked up North American rights to Terry Gilliam’s long-in-the-works drama The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, starring Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Stellan Skarsgard, Olga Kurylenko and Jordi Molla.
Screen Media, in partnership with event cinema specialist Fathom Events, is planning a theatrical release for March 2019. The deal was negotiated by Seth Needle, Svp of Worldwide Acquisitions at Screen Media with the filmmakers.
The film had its world premiere as the Closing Night
Visionary director Terry Gilliam talks with us about his view of filmmaking and what it took to complete The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.
It seems that director Terry Gilliam can't escape the narrative that The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has been a film 30 years in the making, even though his final effort only encompassed the last few years with a modified story and new actors, Jonathan Pryce and Adam Driver. We had the opportunity to speak to the director for The Fourth Wall, our interview podcast, about the evolution of his film and the final version of the long-suffering tale that ultimately ended up on the screen.
In addition to discussing The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, Gilliam addresses issues such as the use of special effects, the freedom enjoyed by his peers in streaming television, the omniprescence of Marvel movies, and his
We’ve all experienced that sensation of something sounding or looking good in our heads -- a note we wanted to write to someone, a story we wanted to pen, perhaps even a film we wanted to make -- and then the disappointment of it actually coming to existence on the page or screen and the thing not being exactly how we envisioned it in the seclusion of our minds.
In a strange way, Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote -- a film that the maverick director of Brazil and 12 Monkeys has been attempting to make for three decades -- engenders the same sensation in the viewer. After all these years, and with the movie’s almost legendary status as the one that kept getting away, one can’t help but wonder if all the time,
The movie’s storied production history is well-documented, including Amazon’s last-minute decision to pull out of the project when producer Paulo Branco claimed rights to the film, which nearly derailed their 2018 premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
In our conversation with Gilliam we discuss how Jonathan Pryce’s Don Quixote built his own ramshackle armor, how directing is like being “an ignorant peasant who knows no better,” and his feelings about Fathom Event’s one-night-only screening strategy.

Although the filmmaker,
This is not the film Gilliam set out to make at the end of the turn of the century. However the shadow of the beleaguered and painful production has worked its way into the fabric of this new narrative. What unfolds is a mesmerising absurdist fantasy, as much a satire of the modern filmmaking process as it is a quest for identity on the constantly shifting sands of sanity. It is visually stunning, emotionally powerful and handmade in the best possible way.
Ostensibly it is the story of a film director (Adam Driver
We spoke to Terry Gilliam about the decades-long process of bringing his The Man Who Killed Don Quixote to the screen.
I became a film fanatic at the early age of 10. No, it wasn’t after watching Star Wars for the first time or from gorging on Back to the Future. It was One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest that drew me in. However, what really changed my entire world were the works of Terry Gilliam. Whether it was the stylized brilliance of “The Crimson Permanent Assurance” (the short film that plays before Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life) or the whimsical journey of Time Bandits, I started to realize that deep and meaningful stories didn’t need to be told strictly through dark and dour dramas. And then I saw Brazil, and nothing else mattered anymore. I don’t have to run down the rest
Starting things off right in the casting department, Adam Driver plays Toby Grisoni, a jaded director of glitzy ad spots who, ten years prior, made a black-and-white student film titled The Man Who Killed Don Quixote nearby the Spanish village he and his crew are now occupying. While making a new commercial also featuring the characters of Don Quixote and Sancho Plaza,
What will the Supporting Actor race look like this year? Will it be awash in "comebacks"? Perhaps it'll lean into fresh cinematic faces? Maybe it'll be a year of long-awaited first nominations for thespians who've had rich careers? Most likely, as with each Oscar year before it, it'll be some random combo of all three but determining who the five men will be this early is nigh impossible. Why is that? Well, there are a few reasons...
“Carnival is over, old man,” one of the cops shouts. When the knight leans over, his face brightens: “Sancho! I am Don Quixote de la Mancha, and I command you to release my squire, Sancho Panza.” The cops make fun of him, as the man Quixote calls Sancho (Adam Driver) ducks in the backseat.
Netflix shared the announcement, along with the above photo from Butler and Centineo, via Twitter.
Last week, it was revealed that Jordan Fisher (Rent: Live) will be taking over the role of Lara Jean’s other love interest John Ambrose McClaren.
