With cinemas around the world taking new steps to carefully reopen, Sony has announced that The Broken Hearts Gallery by executive producer Selena Gomez will be released on the big screen on July 10. The romantic comedy, from Stage 6 Films, will be the first new title from a major Hollywood studio to hit theaters since the coronavirus pandemic forced them to temporarily shut shop in March. The movie will preview even before Christopher Nolan’s next supposed masterpiece Tenet, to release only days later on July 16.
The movie will be Natalie Krinsky’s directorial debut and will star Dacre Montgomery (Stranger Things), Geraldine Viswanathan, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Molly Gordon, Phillipa Soo, Suki Waterhouse, Arturo Castro, Ego Nwodim, Taylor Hill and Bernadette Peters.
In a statement released by Sony Pictures, Gomez said, “Hearing from more female writers and directors is very much needed. Natalie is a wonderful talent and I am happy to be a part of her debut film. I understand people’s concerns regarding returning to activities we all loved prior to Covid-19, I hope everyone will listen to scientists’ recommendations and consider others’ health and safety while enjoying a movie theater experience,” Gomez explained. “Now more than ever, The Broken Hearts Gallery will resonate with audiences ready for a feel-good moviegoing experience this summer,” added Josh Greenstein, Sony’s Motion Picture Group President. “We have faith in a theatrical rebound, and we look forward to being there right out of the gate with our exhibition partners’ anticipated reemergence, as — and when — state-by-state safety guidelines are met.”
The Broken Hearts Gallery debuts in theaters July 10, 2020.
