The Hate U Give Now Releasing Two Weeks Earlier

Posted by at 12:22 pm on September 11, 2018

Deadline reports that The Hate U Give release date has been pushed up two weeks by the studio than originally planned. The film will hit theaters on October 5th in limited release, then expanding  on October 12 and will go full distribution on October 19th.

The Hate U Give is a timely, powerful and thought-provoking story of race and identity, told from the perspective of Starr, played by Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games). Starr is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. What Starr does-or does not-say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

Directed by George Tillman Jr. (Soul FoodMen of HonorNotorious) from a screenplay by Tina Mabry (InsecureQueen SugarMississippi Damned) and Audrey Wells (Under the Tuscan Sun), The Hate U Give also stars Regina Hall and Russell Hornsby as Starr’s parents Lisa and Maverick and features Issa Rae, Sabrina Carpenter, Algee Smith, Lamar Johnson, Anthony Mackie, K.J. Apa, and Common.

The Hate U Give by Angela Thomas has to date spent 79 weeks on The New York Times young adult best-seller list after debuting at No.1. The film rights were picked up by Fox 2000, with Temple Hill and State Street Pictures  as production partners. The film’s producers are Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen and Bob Teitel.
