‘A Simple Favor’ Goes Digital in December
Kendrick and Lively offer up a winter thriller
Lionsgate will release “A Simple Favor” on Digital HD on December 11th, followed by the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand versions of the film on December 18th. The thriller should be a nice change of pace from the regular holiday films that will be playing on repeat over the next few months.
The film released during a crowded box office but “A Simple Favor” did well in theaters. The film debuted in third-place with a $16M weekend, only behind FOX’s “The Predator” and Warner Bros. Pictures’ horror-thriller “The Nun”. “A Simple Favor” made over $53M domestically in theaters and went on to make over $91M worldwide.
The film stars Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, Trolls) and Blake Lively (The Shallows, The Age of Adaline, TV’s “Gossip Girl”) under the direction of Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Ghostbusters, TV’s “Freaks and Geek,” TV’s “The Office”). The screenplay was based on the novel by Darcey Bell and written for the screen by Jessica Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians), Andrew Rannells (TV’s “Girls,” TV’s “The Knick”), Linda Cardellini (TV’s “Freaks and Geeks,” Hunter Killer), and Rupert Friend (TV’s “Homeland”).
The film also stars Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians), Andrew Rannells (TV’s “Girls,” TV’s “The Knick”), Linda Cardellini (TV’s “Freaks and Geeks,” Hunter Killer), and Rupert Friend (TV’s “Homeland”).
