When is the last time you looked at a movie poster that touted a Drive-In movie release? Your answer is probably either "never" or "it's been a long time." The coronavirus pandemic has certainly changed that, and also increased the amount of VOD releases. So, why not do both?
That's exactly what is happening with The Vast of Night from Amazon Prime Video. The movie will be available on Amazon Prime Video and at Drive-Ins on May 29, 2020. This mystery won't take place in modern times, but back in the 1950s. There's just something about that time period apparently. So, what is it about?
"In the twilight of the 1950s, on one fateful night in New Mexico, a young, winsome switchboard operator Fay (Sierra McCormick) and charismatic radio DJ Everett (Jake Horowitz) discover a strange audio frequency that could change their small town and the future forever. Dropped phone calls, AM radio signals, secret reels of tape forgotten in a library, switchboards, crossed patchlines and an anonymous phone call lead Fay and Everett on a scavenger hunt toward the unknown."
The Vast of Night is directed by Andrew Patterson, and written by James Montague and Craig W. Sanger. Aside from McCormick and Horowitz, the film also stars Bruce Davis and Gail Cronauer. If you were lucky enough to see the movie at a film festival before everything start shutting down, feel free to share your opinion.
