Alfonso Cuarón’s ‘ROMA’ Gets New Trailer as Theatrical Release Plans Get Confirmed

Written by on November 13, 2018 


One of the most acclaimed films of the fall is Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity follow-up ROMA, a gorgeous black-and-white drama set in Mexico City in the early ’70s as we follow a middle-class family, and specifically its nanny and housekeeper (Yalitza Aparicio). Rory O’Connor said in his review, “ROMA is comprised of a series of richly detailed vignettes, shot in deep-focus, in which the viewer can glance around, pluck out the most vibrant signs of life and thus string the narrative together. ”

Netflix has recently broken new ground in appeasing Cuarón, who clearly desires his film be shown in cinemas (a notion we have to agree with). They’ve announced an earlier theatrical release date for the film of November 21–three weeks prior to its Netflix bow–and have now given an official statement regarding the expansion, though don’t expect it any Alamo Drafthouses. Check out the statement below, along with a new trailer.

ROMA will have exclusive limited theatrical engagements starting November 21 in Los Angeles, New York and Mexico. Additional engagements in U.S. cities, Toronto and London will begin November 29 with other top U.S. markets and international territories continuing to roll out beginning December 5. The film will be released globally on Netflix on December 14 with an expanded theatrical release in the U.S. and international markets. In total, the film will be theatrically released in over 30 countries globally with 70mm presentations also being planned during the film’s theatrical release.

The most personal project to date from Academy Award®-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien), ROMA follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City. Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s. Cuarón’s first project since the groundbreaking Gravity in 2013.
