Early test of 2021 Box-office likely from this Star-filled $100 million Sci-fi Thriller
The 1st official trailer for the upcoming sci-fi action-thriller, starring Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland, “Chaos Walking”, was just released. The Doug Liman directed YA movie is a Lionsgate production and is currently scheduled for release on Jan. 22, 2021.
“Release” these days can have a lot of meanings. The upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 dual theatrical / HBO Max release has all eyes on it, for a possible formula to succeed at the box office in this radically changed environment.
If WW84 does boffo @ holiday / Christmas, using this novel approach, Chaos Walking could be a follow-up trend-extender, so stay tuned for release details closer to the official date.
The film is inspired by the 2008 book “The Knife of Never Letting Go” by Patrick Ness, the first of his Chaos Walking series. Set in the future, Daisy Ridley plays character Viola, who crash lands on another planet, a planet in which all the women have disappeared. All the men have been infected with “the Noise” germ, that put their thoughts on display. Viola teams up with Tom Hollands character, Todd Hewitt and vows to protect her, all the while learning to channel “his own inner power and unlock the planet’s dark secrets,” per Lionsgate’s description.
Chaos Walking began filming back in the beautiful, pre-pandemic days of 2017, for the originally planned March 2019 release. Because the two stars were also juggling other movies, Tom Holland filming Spider-Man and Daisy Ridley busy filming Star Wars, it was difficult to get the leads to finalize all production until 2020.
Along with Ridley and Holland, Chaos Walking boasts a stacked cast that also includes Nick Jonas, Mads Mikkelsen, Cynthia Erivo, David Oyelowo, Kurt Sutter, and Demián Bichir.
