The Kingmaker: Showtimes Fest Favorite Gets U.S. Theatrical Run With Greenwich Entertainment, First Trailer

EXCLUSIVE: Showtime documentary The Kingmaker, the only doc to screen at Venice, TIFF and Telluride, will get a U.S. theatrical run via Greenwich Entertainment, which last year released Oscar-winning doc Free Solo.

Emmy-winning writer-director Lauren Greenfields (The Queen of Versailles) latest movie will open in theaters in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, November 8. Pic will open at The Quad in New York City and Laemmles Royal Theater in LA. Check out the first trailer for the movie above.

Centered on the indomitable character of Imelda Marcos, The Kingmaker examines the Marcos familys improbable return to power in the Philippines. The film explores the disturbing legacy of the Marcos regime and chronicles Imeldas present-day push to help her son, Bongbong, win the vice-presidency. To this end, the controversial character confidently rewrites her familys history of corruption, replacing it with a narrative of a matriarchs extravagant love for her country.
