Universal Pictures announces a new premiere date of Nobody starring Bob Odenkirk, now releasing on March 26, a week earlier than expected.
Nobody gets a new, earlier March 2021 release date. The upcoming action thriller will star Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk, known for Better Call Saul, as Hutch Mansell in a John Wick-type film with creator Derek Kolstad helming the script. The film is directed by Ilya Naishuller and revolves around an ordinary suburban father who proves to be more than he is following a home invasion and slowly begins to unravel his hidden secrets when he is being underestimated yet again. The movie is produced by David Leitch, also part of the John Wick franchise, and has a cast of Connie Nielsen, Christopher Lloyd, and RZA.
Universal Pictures has now announced that the movie’s premiere will be widely seen a week earlier, with the film debuting on March 26 rather than April 2. Universal has also made a date an untitled event film on September 30, 2022 wide. As with most other films slated to release in 2020, the premiere of Nobody has been delayed many times due to the pandemic, but Universal has been utilizing the time to advertise the movie more with the film making a humorous appearance during the Super Bowl.
Based on the success of the John Wick franchise, it is safe to assume Nobody will do well with audiences given it has all the similar components in the trailer such as guns, action sequences, adversaries, and emotional motivations. It was recently announced that movie theaters will slightly reopen in NYC on March 5, which is vital for an action movie. So it will be intriguing to see in the next month how the box office responds when the movie premieres.
