The two animated films join Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody, Green Book, Mary Poppins Returns, and Mary Queen of Scots, that will last in the very first week of the Oscars Film Festival. The two Into the Spider-Verse and Isle of Dogs are re-releases, the prior from December and the latter out of July 2018.
In its original announcement a week, PVR Cinemas had stated the lineup for its Oscars Film Festival would marginally alter every week, which is exactly what is happening here. The Golden Globe-winning Into the Spider-Verse, which continues to be playing in very few non-PVR theaters across India, joins the catalog for PVR’s Oscars Film Festival on the road to the 2019 Oscars, alongside Wes Anderson’s Japanese-inspired Isle of Dogs, both of which are nominated in the Best Animated Feature Film category opposite Incredibles 2, Mirai, and Ralph Breaks the Internet. Isle of Dogs is also nominated for Best Original Score, for the job of Alexandre Desplat.
Much like the initial week, every movie that’s part of PVR’s Oscars Film Festival will have one screening in every city. Check your local listings on PVR Cinemas’ official website or third-party ticketing partners like BookMyShow and Paytm for further particulars.
There’s no sign of the five missing Best Picture contenders in the 2019 Oscars: BlacKkKlansman, The Favourite, Roma, A Star Is Born, and Vice. Of those, do not expect to see BlacKkKlansman and Roma in theaters because of their subject matter and Netflix launch version, respectively. A Star Is Born remains missing, strangely, despite releasing formerly in India back in October. Gadgets 360 has reached out to PVR Cinemas for India release date advice on The Favorite and Vice, and we will update this article when we listen back.
