Richard Jewell lands in Irish cinemas on January 31 – but you could see it first!
To celebrate the release of Clint Eastwood’s suspense drama RICHARD JEWELL, in Irish cinemas on January 31, we have teamed up with Warner Bros. Pictures to send you an a guest to a special preview screening in Cineworld on the January 22.
“There is a bomb in Centennial Park. You have thirty minutes.” The world is first introduced to Richard Jewell as the security guard who reports finding the device at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Games bombing—his quick thinking making him a hero whose swift actions save countless lives. But within days, the law enforcement wannabe will become the FBI’s number one suspect, vilified in the court of public opinion, his life ripped apart.
Directed by Clint Eastwood, the suspense drama Richard Jewell centres around the events that forever made his name synonymous with that terrible act. The film stars Oscar winners Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) as attorney Watson Bryant and Kathy Bates (Misery, TV’s American Horror Story) as Richard’s mom, Bobi; Jon Hamm (Baby Driver) as lead FBI investigating agent Tom Shaw (a fictionalised character); Olivia Wilde (Life Itself) as reporter Kathy Scruggs; and Paul Walter Hauser (I, Tonya) as Richard Jewell.
Oscar winner Eastwood directed from a screenplay by Oscar nominee Billy Ray (Captain Phillips), based on true events and on the Vanity Fair article 'American Nightmare—The Ballad of Richard Jewell' by Marie Brenner. Eastwood also produced under his Malpaso banner, alongside Tim Moore, Jessica Meier, Kevin Misher, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson and Jonah Hill.
Eastwood’s creative team included director of photography Yves Bélanger and production designer Kevin Ishioka, along with longtime costume designer Deborah Hopper and Oscar-winning editor Joel Cox (Unforgiven), who have worked with Eastwood throughout the years on numerous projects. The music is by Arturo Sandoval, who scored 2018’s The Mule.
Warner Bros. Pictures Presents a Malpaso Production, an Appian Way/Misher Films/75 Year Plan Production, Richard Jewell. The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
