Ridley Scott’s ‘Napoleon’ Announces China Release Date

The upcoming epic historical drama film directed and produced by Ridley Scott, ‘Napoleon’ is all set for its theatrical release in mainland Chinese on December 1, 2023.

The upcoming war/drama from Apple Original Films, distributed in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment, will be released in the United States and the United Kingdom on November 22, 2023, by Sony Pictures and will stream on Apple TV+ at a subsequent date.

The film premiered at Salle Pleyel in Paris on November 14, 2023.

The movie depicts the true story of Napoleon Bonaparte, mostly portraying the French leader’s rise to power and his relationship with Empress Joséphine.

In August 2023, Ridley Scott said that he has a four-and-a-half-hour director’s cut of the movie that shows more of Empress Joséphine with hopes of releasing it in theaters and on Apple TV+ following the initial theatrical release.

Later, in October 2023, the director confirmed that the director’s cut will be available on Apple TV+ after the theatrical run.

The Hollywood Reporter reported that ‘Napoleon’ will have a wide release on Imax in China, just like Christopher Nolan’s ‘Oppenheimer,’ and cost about $200 million to make, excluding the expense of marketing.

Joaquin Phoenix will be seen as Napoleon Bonaparte, with Vanessa Kirby playing the role of Empress Joséphine onscreen. The cast also includes Tahar Rahim, Ben Miles, Ludivine Sagnier, Matthew Needham, John Hollingworth, Youssef Kerkour, Phil Cornwell, Édouard Philipponnat, Ian McNeice, Rupert Everett, Paul Rhys, Catherine Walker, Gavin Spokes, Mark Bonnar, Anna Mawn, Davide Tucci, Sam Crane and Scott Handy.
