A Ghost Story UK release date announced, new still released

David Lowery’s A Ghost Story will be hitting UK cinemas this August

David Lowery’s much-buzzed Sundance favourite A Ghost Story will be coming to UK cinemas on 11 August, released by Picturehouse.

The film will get its UK debut at Sundance London and we’re very excited that it’s getting such a prompt nationwide release. The new film from the man behind Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and Pete’s Dragon stars Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, and it’s been very well received so far. It comes from A24, the production company behind such genre favourites as Ex Machina, Green Room and The Witch.

Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Rooney Mara), only to find that in his spectral state he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away. Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence. An unforgettable meditation on love and grief, A Ghost Story emerges ecstatic and surreal — a wholly unique experience that lingers long after the credits roll.”

A Ghost Story will be released on 11 August. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
