Film fans are salivating over the release of Edgar Wright’s new documentary, The Sparks Brothers. The film hit limited theaters on June 18 to near unanimous critical acclaim.
In addition, Annette, the much-anticipated new musical film written by Sparks, directed by revolutionary French director Leos Carax (Holy Motors, Pola X), starring Adam Driver, Marion Cotillard, and Simon Helberg, had its world premiere earlier this month as the opening film at the 74th Cannes Film Festival. Annette will arrive in U.S. theaters on Friday, August 6 before streaming in the U.S. exclusively via Amazon Prime Video on Friday, August 20.
Annette – which began life as an intended Sparks album but was transformed into a musical film after the Maels met Carax – was heralded this spring with the soundtrack’s “So May We Start,” performed by Sparks, Adam Driver, Marion Cotillard and Simon Helberg.
