STUDIOCANAL and Monumental Pictures announce the UK release date & first look image for ‘Back to Black,’ the highly anticipated feature film about Amy Winehouse’s vibrant years living in London and her intense journey to fame will open in UK and Irish cinemas 12 April 2024.
The movie will focus on Amy’s extraordinary genius, creativity and honesty that infused everything she did. A journey that took her from the craziness and colour of 90’s Camden High Street to global adoration – and back again, it crashes through the looking glass of celebrity to watch this journey from behind the mirror, to see what Amy saw, to feel what she felt.
Acclaimed filmmaker and visual artist Sam Taylor-Johnson directs with break-out star Marisa Abela (Industry) in the coveted lead role supported by BAFTA winning actor Jack O’Connell, Eddie Marsan and Golden Globe and Oscar-nominated Lesley Manville.
Alison Owen (Saving Mr Banks, Me Before You, Elizabeth), Debra Hayward (Les Miserables, Bridget Jones’s Baby) of Monumental Pictures are producing, Nicky Kentish-Barnes (What’s Love Got To Do With it?, Everest) executive produces, with Nina Gold leading the casting of the film. EVP Global Production Ron Halpern and SVP Global Production Joe Naftalin executive produce and are overseeing for STUDIOCANAL.
