The Broken Hearts Gallery, a new film produced by Selena Gomez, is pushing back its release date from July 10 to July 17. The film is rescheduling to account for the recent surge of coronavirus. While public places are starting to open back up, new cases of coronavirus are still infecting Americans every day.
The film is one of the first releases coming to theaters after they are reopened following the coronavirus and social distancing precautions. While it is unclear what theaters will look like when they reopen, some theaters will begin opening in the third week in June in some places in the US.
The Broken Hearts Gallery is the directorial debut of Natalie Krinsky. In addition to directing, Krinsky also wrote the screenplay for the film.
In a statement regarding the film, Gomez said, “Hearing from more female writers and directors is very much needed. Natalie is a wonderful talent and I am happy to be a part of her debut film. I understand people’s concerns regarding returning to activities we all loved prior to COVID-19. I hope everyone will listen to scientists’ recommendations and consider others’ health and safety while enjoying the movie theater experience.”
Hopefully, the later release date will allow for a safer and healthier opening for the film and theaters across the country.
