Fox 2000 Moves Up ‘The Hate U Give’ Release Date

04-the-hate-u-give.w710.h473Fox 2000 has moved up the release date for its adaptation of Angie Thomas’ The Hate U Give by two weeks to October 5. It now will open in limited release then expand the following week and go wide on October 19.

Based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Angie Thomas, The Hate U Give follows Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg) who is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right.

Considering the social climate, The Hate U Give couldn’t come at a more appropriate time. The woke story also stars Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Common, Anthony Mackie, Issa Rae, KJ Apa, Lamar Johnson and Algee Smith. George Tillman Jr. directs the adapted script written by Audrey Wells.’
