The Hulu Original film RUN premieres Friday, November 20, 2020, on Hulu. The film joins Hulu’s growing slate of Original films including Palm Springs, which was Hulu’s most-watched movie premiere ever, Big Time Adolescence, and The Binge.
Initially, the thriller was supposed to be released on May 8 right around Mother’s Day, but the COVID-19 pandemic had shuttered theaters and left studios scrambling. As we have now settled into a routine of sorts, studios have slowly started to transition select films over to Video On Demand or made deals with notable streaming services to ensure films get the audiences they need.
They say you can never escape a mother’s love… but for Chloe, that’s not a comfort — it’s a threat. There’s something unnatural, even sinister about the relationship between Chloe (newcomer Kiera Allen) and her mom, Diane (Sarah Paulson). Diane has raised her daughter in total isolation, controlling every move she’s made since birth, and there are secrets that Chloe’s only beginning to grasp. From the visionary writers, producers and director of the breakout film Searching, comes a suspense thriller that shows that when mom gets a little too close, you need to RUN.
The film stars Sarah Paulson (Bird Box, “American Horror Story” franchise) and introduces newcomer Kiera Allen. RUN is the first major thriller since the 1940s starring an actual wheelchair user.
RUN is directed by Aneesh Chaganty (Searching). Chaganty co-wrote the screenplay with Sev Ohanian (The Labyrinth, The Intervention). The music is composed by Torin Borrowdale (The Midnight Man, The Fare). The film is produced by Natalie Qasabian (Duck Butter, All About Nina) and Ohanian.
RUN is the second feature from the filmmaking team behind Searching, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival before earning more than $75 million worldwide.
Lionsgate will release the film theatrically in select international markets.
