Steven Spielberg He’s a cinema legend which is why every premiere he’s on generates interest. His latest film is called “The Fabelmans” and it’s semi-autobiographical, as it introduces us to a fictional character named Sammy Fabelman, who is loosely based on Spielberg when he was young, while nurturing a love of cinema and discovering a dark family secret. It changes the way you see the world.
The Fabelmans was co-written and produced by Tony Kushner and stars Gabrielle Labelle, Michelle Williams, Paul Dano, Seth Rogen, Ox Fegley and more.
Kushner said of the film, which opens February 23 in theaters in New York, Peru and other Latin American countries. “I didn’t want to pressure him into doing something that seemed incorrect about his family because that was so important to him.”
However, he felt that not being part of the Spielberg family allowed him to use his tools as a writer to ensure that the film was true to both the director’s life and to many families from different walks of life.
Oakes Fegley, who plays high school bully Chad Thomas, said, “What makes this movie so important to him (Spielberg) and everyone who goes to see it is that this is the first movie that I think Stephen builds on her own life and brings elements of her character not just in the process photography but also for the story.”
The complexity of Sammy’s family, which mirrors Spielberg’s real life, is a major point in the film.
Williams, who plays Sammy’s mother, Mitzi Fabelman, has made it clear that she sees her children as individuals.
“She sees something strange and unusual in her son (Sammy), and while the family may be ashamed or different, she welcomes and encourages him,” Williams said.
Theatrical release date
It was the premiere of “The Fabelmans” at the Toronto International Film Festival. After that, the film will be shown in US theaters on November 11, 2022.
In Latin America (in countries such as Peru and Colombia), the film will premiere in theaters on February 23, 2023.
Will it be flowing?
“The Fablemans” is a Universal Pictures movie. This distributor’s official streaming service is Peacock, so the movie will be coming to that service, which is currently only available in the US.
And in Latin America? At the moment, it is not known which service will arrive. Other important Universal Pictures titles have crossed platforms such as HBO Max, as is “F9,” the latest movie in the “Fast and Furious” saga, currently available in its catalog.
