Almost exactly a 12 months after her “Ocean’s 8” hit theaters, Cambridge native Mindy Kaling will be once more in multiplexes.
Coming off of a worthwhile debut on the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, Kaling’s new movie “Late Night” will hit theaters nationwide on June 7.
“Hi, guys, I have some major news,” Kaling talked about in a video posted to her Instagram. “My movie ‘Late Night’ is going to premiere in theaters June 7. Last season of ‘Game of Thrones’ will be done by then, so you have no reason not to see it.”
“Late Night,” which Kaling wrote, produced, and stars in, amenities spherical a veteran late-night host (Emma Thompson) going by means of declining rankings whose daily routine is shaken up by a “diversity hire” inside the creator’s room (Kaling).
Amazon purchased the house distribution rights to “Late Night” in January for what was on the time a Sundance report of $13 million. (That sum was later eclipsed on the competitors when Amazon paid $14 million for “The Report” and Warner Bros. paid $15 million for “Blinded by the Light.”)
Buzz for the movie coming out of Sundance was sometimes optimistic. Indiewire’s Kate Erbland known as the movie “funny as hell,” and Variety’s Peter Debruge named it one of one of one of the best films of the competitors, describing it as a “smart and satisfying comedy” that “savvily addresses so many of the issues swirling in the zeitgeist today.”
