Amsterdam Release Date: Is the Amsterdam Movie Based on a True Story?
From Oppenheimer to Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie, movies with a lot of famous people in them have been all the rage in Hollywood lately.
So, what could be better than a mystery movie with a bunch of big names in it? Nothing. The new movie by David O. Russell, called Amsterdam, is a mystery that will be in theatres before the end of the year.
Set in the early 20th century, Amsterdam looks like an action-packed period piece that turns out to be a gripping whodunit.
Already, the movie has gotten a lot of attention for its impressive cast, which includes everyone from Chris Rock to Taylor Swift. After the movie’s trailer came out recently, people are even more excited to see it.
Here’s everything you need to know about Amsterdam before it comes out in theatres, including the story, the actors, the trailer, and the release date.
The trailer for Amsterdam asserts that “a lot of this actually happened,” mixing reality and fiction. Three friends from the 1930s, a doctor, an attorney, and a nurse, are the focus of the narrative.
Christian Bale, John David Washington, and Margot Robbie play these characters, respectively. When the trio first met in Amsterdam in the 1910s, they made a promise to look out for one another “no matter what,” as Burt, played by actor Christian Bale, says in the teaser.
After the buddies are wrongfully charged with murder and forced to look into the matter, Amsterdam follows them. Along the way, they encounter danger, drama, and other A-listers, including a friend of the deceased who is portrayed by Robert De Niro, thanks to the high-stakes mystery.
A lot of the talk about Amsterdam is about its famous cast. In addition to the leads and De Niro, the cast has a lot of well-known actors, such as comedian Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit), Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy), Rami Malek, and Zoe Saldana (Bohemian Rhapsody).
Taylor Swift, who won a Grammy, Mike Myers, who was in Austin Powers, Michael Shannon, who was in The Shape of Water, and Alessandro Nivola, who was in The Many Saints of Newark, round out the group.
When is the Amsterdam Release Date?
According to whattowatch.com/ Amsterdam comes out in the US on October 7, and the UK gets it on November 4. This would make it almost seven years since David O. Russell’s last movie, Joy, came out around Christmastime in 2015.
The fall release date also puts Amsterdam right in the middle of awards season, which has been a common theme in his recent works.
Between 2010 and 2013, Russell made three movies that were all nominated for Best Picture. These were The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook, and American Hustle.
The three movies got a total of 25 Oscar nominations and three wins: two for The Fighter’s supporting performances by Christian Bale and Melissa Leo, and one for Silver Linings Playbook’s Best Actress by Jennifer Lawrence. With Amsterdam, can Russell go back to the Oscars and maybe get himself a win?
The official trailer for Amsterdam was published on July 6 by 20th Century Studios. With a running time of just over 2.5 minutes, the trailer teases some of the mystery that the movie promises without giving too much away.
The Amsterdam trailer offers a grand, exhilarating, and occasionally comical window into the world of the three and is set to Ten Years After’s “I’d Love to Change the World.”
