Fox Searchlight Dates ‘A Bigger Splash,’ Starring Tilda Swinton, for 2016

Fox Searchlight Dates 'A Bigger Splash,' Starring Tilda Swinton, for 2016

Fox Searchlight has dated “A Bigger Splash,” director Luca Guadagnino’s latest Mediterranean collaboration with Tilda Swinton after “I Am Love,” to open stateside in limited release on May 13, 2016.

The film, which wasn’t ready for Cannes but landed a September 6th Venice premiere and a London slot and could show up in Telluride, is set on the volcanic island of Pantelleria, where rock legend Marianne Lane (Swinton) is languishing with partner Paul (Matthias Schoenaerts) when an old flame and record producer (Ralph Fiennes) interrupts their holiday. He arrives with his daughter (Dakota Johnson) — and plenty of nostalgia and unfinished business.

With “A Bigger Splash” out of 2015 awards play, Fox Searchlight will focus on building North American buzz for “Youth,” “He Named Me Malala” and “Brooklyn,” all running the fall fest gamut. And there’s “Mistress America.” Like “A Bigger Splash,” Fox pushed Jean-Marc Vallée’s Toronto opener “Demolition,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Naomi Watts, to spring 2016.
