The newest Apple production Argylle receiving a worldwide theatrical premiere in cinemas before it streams is Matthew Vaughn’s spy thriller.

Apple Original Films Are Making Big Noise In Theaters

More advances are being made by Apple Original Films in the theater market. The Henry Cavill spy thriller Argylle will have an exclusive global premiere on February 2, 2024, according to a partnership between the streaming service and Universal.

It’s the most recent prominent film that Apple has chosen to give a theatrical release time before launching on streaming. Ridley Scott’s Napoleon will already be released in cinemas this Thanksgiving thanks to a partnership between the firm and Sony, while Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon will be released on October 6 by Paramount.

Streamers have been reticent to give movies a conventional theatrical distribution up until this year. However, if a title doesn’t have an exclusive window (often 35 to 40 days), large theater chains won’t screen it. Prior to its streaming premiere in May, Amazon released the Ben Affleck film Air in cinemas in April.

The Stars Of Argylle

Argylle is a Mathew Vaughn native, and his MARV banner produced the movie. Written by Jason Fuchs, the script. Vaughn announced the project in 2021, citing an as-of-yet unpublished novel by first-time novelist Elly Conway (albeit there is much mystery about the book and its author).

Argylle also stars John Cena, Catherine O’Hara, Sam Rockwell, Bryan Cranston, Dua Lipa, Ariana DeBose, and Samuel L. Jackson in addition to Henry Cavill.

The Lionsgate horror film Imaginary and the Warner Bros. gangster film Wise Guys are both scheduled for release on February 2, 2024, the same day as Argylle.

Adam Bohling, David Reid, Fuchs, and Cloudy Productions all contribute to Argylle’s production. Executive producers include Zygi Kamasa, Carlos Peres, Claudia Vaughn, and Adam Fishbach.

The situations were extremely different back then, but Vaughn told The Hollywood Reporter in 2021 that he and Apple were talking about a potential theatrical component for Argylle.

Theaters were still under strain from the epidemic, and streaming services hadn’t yet looked into conventional releases.
