‘On the Rocks’ launches in theaters October 2 ahead of Apple TV+ debut on October 23

We saw the first official trailer for Sofia Coppola’s On the Rocks back in August, and now we know when we can watch the new film on Apple TV+.

A new report from Deadline not only reveals the premiere date for On the Rocks for Apple TV+, but also reiterates the fact that the film will also have a limited run in movie theaters across the United States. For those in the select markets where theaters are open, and running new releases, On the Rocks will launch in theaters on Friday, October 2.

After that, the film will be available to stream on Apple TV+ on Friday, October 23.

The film stars Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation) and Bill Murray (Ghostbusters), and is directed by Coppola.

Here’s the official trailer, as a reminder:

And the official description of the film:

A young New York mother faced with sudden doubts about her marriage teams up with her larger-than-life playboy father to tail her husband. What follows is a sparkling comic adventure across the city – drawing father and daughter closer together despite one detour after another. Acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola brings a light touch to this blend of an exuberant love letter to New York, a generation-clash comedy about how we see relationships differently from our parents, and a funny celebration of the complications that bind modern families even as they tie us in crazy knots.

Laura (Rashida Jones) thinks she’s happily hitched, but when her husband Dean (Marlon Wayans) starts logging late hours at the office with a new co-worker, Laura begins to fear the worst. She turns to the one man she suspects may have insight: her charming, impulsive father Felix (Bill Murray), who insists they investigate the situation. As the two begin prowling New York at night, careening from uptown parties to downtown hotspots, they discover at the heart of their journey lies their own relationship.

This has been one of the most prominent and highly anticipated films for Apple TV+ since the project was first announced. Not only because it’s one of the premier projects for the partnership between Apple and the production company A24, but because it brings back a collaboration between Coppola and Murray. The two last worked together years ago with Lost in Translation, a major turning point for Murray’s film career.

As noted in the original report, On the Rocks has a 78% on Rotten Tomatoes right now, and that was after the film’s premiere at this year’s New York Film Festival.

Are you looking forward to this one?
