The Bikeriders | June 21, 2024

Focus reunites with director Jeff Nichols on The Bikeriders. Starring Jodie Comer, Austin Butler, and Tom Hardy, the film is a crime epic that charts the rise and fall of Chicago motorcycle club, the Vandals, and the relationships that are threatened along the way. After a chance encounter at a local bar, strong-willed Kathy (Jodie Comer) is inextricably drawn to Benny (Austin Butler), the newest member of Midwestern motorcycle club, the Vandals led by the enigmatic Johnny (Tom Hardy). Much like the country around it, the club begins to evolve, transforming from a gathering place for local outsiders into a dangerous underworld of violence.

Conclave | November 1, 2024 (limited), November 8, 2024

Conclave is filmmaker Edward Berger’s follow up to his Oscar-winning All Quiet on the Western Front. The film follows the Machiavellian power struggle at the top of the world’s most powerful and secretive organization—the Roman Catholic Church. Starring an incredible lineup of actors, including Ralph Fiennes, Stanley Tucci, John Lithgow and Isabella Rossellini, the film follows one of the world’s most secretive events — selecting a new Pope. Cardinal Lawrence (Ralph Fiennes) is tasked with running this covert process after the unexpected death of the beloved Pope.

Nosferatu | December 25, 2024

Focus Features once again collaborates with filmmaker Robert Eggers to bring audiences his highly anticipated reimagining of the classic vampire tale, Nosferatu. Billed as his most personal film to date, Nosferatu is described as a terrifying tale of love and obsession full of psychological horror and jump scares — or as it was described on the Colosseum stage “Not your father’s Nosferatu.” Eggers’ sets, costumes and detailed world building are keying up a must-see theatrical experience for horror fans everywhere. Robert Eggers’ Nosferatu is a gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman and the terrifying vampire infatuated with her.
