For the new thriller “The Royal Hotel”, it’s like working as a bartender in an Australian nightmare.
Director Kitty Green’s (The Assistant) new film “The Royal Hotel” tells the story of two young American women exploring the beautiful Australian countryside.
They work as bartenders at the Royal Hotel to earn extra money, starting like any other regular job.
Everything changes when two women meet some criminals and queer people who endanger their safety.
“The Royal Hotel” had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival in early 2023 and has since received critical acclaim at the festival. For more on the Australian thriller, cast, trailer, release date, and more, here’s what we know about “The Royal Hotel”.
When is ‘The Royal Hotel’ Coming Out?
Following its festival run, “The Royal Hotel” will begin its limited theatrical run on Friday, October 6th.
Where Can You Watch ‘The Royal Hotel’?
The only way to watch The Royal Hotel when it premieres on October 6th is to find where it will be playing at your local movie theater.
In an age where the industry has been placed on hold due to the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, The Royal Hotel’s production company, Neon, has still been pushing on during the historic proceedings.
Earlier in the year, one of Neon’s biggest projects of 2023, director Michael Mann’s Ferrari starring Adam Driver, was one of the few projects to receive a wait from SAG-AFTRA due to its lack of involvement with the AMPTP.
Neon has now announced no plans for a VOD or streaming release.
About the trailer
The main trailer for “The Royal Hotel” was released by Neon on September 7th, 2023, just one week after the film premiered at Telluride.
We quickly meet our two main characters, Hanna (Julia Garner) and Liv (Jessica Henwick), as they speak with a social worker about finding jobs nearby in Australia.
The social worker recommends a bartending job at a local hotel, but the location is fairly remote and out of the way. Ever the adventurers, the two friends agree to the job after Liv jokingly asks if they’ll see kangaroos.
