After a previous controversy with the movie, it looks as though Apple is going to be releasing Apple TV+’s new film, The Banker, into theaters.
The film is the story of the first two African American bankers in the United States. It stars Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson, Nia Long and Nicholas Hoult.
The controversy behind the film was that the premiere of it was canceled due to historic inaccuracy and sexual abuse targeted by the executive producers of the film.
A spokesperson from Apple TV+ said this in a statement about the film to Variety:
“We wanted to take the time to understand the situation at hand — and after reviewing the information available to us, including documentation of the filmmakers’ research, we’ve decided to make this important and enlightening film available to viewers…”
The Banker will get a limited movie theater release in the United States and it will be released into select theaters on March 6, 2020. It will be released on Apple TV+ on March 20, 2020.
