2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Richard Linklater’s Apollo 10½

2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Richard Linklater’s Apollo 10½

We thought this might be ready on time for last year’s fest (it’s an animated film folks – always tough to predict) but Netflix do look to launch the now titled Apollo 10½ for the upcoming year ahead. Richard Linklater could easily grab a spot at either Park City or Austin or both.  This stars Jack Black, Zachary Levi, Glen Powell, Josh Wiggins, Milo Coy, Lee Eddy, Bill Wise, Natalie L’Amoreaux, Jessica Brynn Cohen, Sam Chipman and Danielle Guilbot.

Gist: Set against the backdrop of the 1969 Apollo mission to the moon this is inspired by Linklater’s childhood in Houston, TX.

Production Co./Producers: Tommy Pallotta, Mike Blizzard, Femke Wolting, Bruno Felix.

Prediction: KIDS.

U.S. Distributor: Netflix.
