Is Lars Klevberg’s Polaroid about to become the next Amityville: Awakening? According to Variety, Polaroid has yet again been moved off of its re-scheduled release date, the fourth time that the film has been jockeyed around in the last five months, with no date of release in sight.
While the unknown status of the film has been attributed to the on-going scandal at Dimension’s parent company, The Weinstein Company, the roots of this uncertainty go back much further.
The film was originally scheduled for a release on August 25th, 2017 (as detailed in out HNN 2017 Summer Movie Preview), but Polaroid was soon moved to early December. In the early fall, the film was moved to November 22nd, seemingly to avoid Guillermo de Toro’s The Shape of Water and the film that every rival studio wants to move away from, The Last Jedi.
