SHE SAID

Stronger together

From the Academy Award-winning producers of 12 Years a Slave, Moonlight, Minari, Selma and The Big Short and the Oscar-nominated producer of Zero Dark Thirty and American Hustle, the film is based on The New York Times investigation by Jodi Kantor, Megan Twohey and Rebecca Corbett and The New York Times bestseller, She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey.

Two-time Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan ( Promising Young Woman, An Education) and Emmy nominee Zoe Kazan ( The Plot Against America, The Big Sick) star as New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who together broke one of the most important stories in a generation — a story that shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood and impelled a shift in American culture that continues to this day.

She Said is directed by Emmy winner Maria Schrader ( I’m Your Man, Unorthodox limited series) from a screenplay by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, screenwriter of the Oscar- winning film Ida. The film is produced by Academy Award winners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner for Plan B Entertainment and is executive produced by Oscar winner Brad Pitt and Lila Yacoub, and by Oscar nominee Megan Ellison and Sue Naegle for Annapurna Pictures.

OPENING FRIDAY

STRANGE WORLD

Family ties saving the future

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ original action-packed comedy adventure Strange World introduces a legendary family of explorers, the Clades, as they attempt to navigate an uncharted, treacherous land alongside a motley crew that includes a mischievous blob, a three-legged dog and a slew of ravenous creatures.

At its core, Strange World is a story about family, specifically three generations – grandfather, son and grandson – each seeking their place in the world but who must overcome their differences to preserve their way of life in Avalonia.

Strange World features the voices of Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal as Searcher Clade, a brilliant family man who, as a teenager, discovered a plant-based power source that changed the world of Avalonia; Dennis Quaid as Searcher’s larger-than-life explorer father, Jaeger; Jaboukie Young-White as Searcher’s 16-year-old son, Ethan, who longs for adventure; Gabrielle Union as Meridian Clade, an accomplished pilot and Searcher’s partner in all things; and Lucy Liu as Callisto Mal, Avalonia’s fearless leader who spearheads the exploration into the strange world.

Helmed by director Don Hall (Oscar-winning BigHero 6, Raya and the Last Dragon) and co-director/writer Qui Nguyen (co-writer Raya and the Last Dragon), produced by Roy Conli (Oscar-winning Big Hero 6, Tangled), and featuring music by Henry Jackman ( The Gray Man, Ron’s Gone Wrong, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier).
