The Photograph | February 14, 2020 | Universal

Recommended Posts




Variety has brought word that the upcoming Universal Pictures romantic drama The Photograph has found its leads in Emmy-nominated actress Issa Rae and Sorry to Bother You star Lakeith Stanfield.


Written and directed by Stella Meghie (Everything, Everything), the film will focus on intertwining love stories set in both the past and present, though the characters Rae and Stanfield will be portraying have yet to be announced.


Will Packer, one of the primary producers behind such hits as Girls Trip and Think Like a Man, is attached to produce the project through his self-named company alongside James Lopez while Meghie and Rae are set to executive produce the romantic drama. Universal’s senior vice president of production Sara Scott and creative executive Mika Pryce are set to oversee the production for the studio.

Well, just found out this is what I'll be at the theatre for on Valentine's Day. The other options are Sonic and Fantasy Island so I suppose I'm not missing too much. I would have been up for FI but Sonic doesn't interest me whatsoever.

Given how horror has fared so far in 2020, is it almost guaranteed that this out-opens Fantasy Island? Romance/couples movies have always done well on Presidents' Day weekend, or the weekend before, depending on which weekend is closer to Valentines Day.

Not surprising, I guess, but looks like this one is going to be really frontloaded. Huge Valentine's Day player as you'd expect and then a big drop on Saturday. It's lucky in that this year Valentine's Day also lands on Presidents' Day weekend so the Sunday drop might be softer, and then of course there's Presidents' Day Monday.


Has anyone here seen it?

they all told you? weird

Well, I guess it was an odd statement because I only have a few couples in my social circle so....yeah. In fairness, my best friend and his GF told me their couple friends are going to see it so that's 4 couples worth of anecdotal evidence!!
