About Maestro Movie:

In October, Jeremy Strong joined the cast as John Gruen but later dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.

The film was expected to begin filming on April 5, 2021, in Los Angeles, however, it instead began in May 2022. Production occurred at Tanglewood between May 21 and 26 and in New York City. Filming also took place at Ely Cathedral in England between October 20 and 22.

Steven Spielberg was considering directing the film, but when Bradley Cooper showed him an early cut of A Star Is Born (2018), Spielberg walked over to Cooper after the “Shallow” scene and said to him, “You’re directing Maestro.”

Paramount Pictures was the original distributor before the film moved to Netflix.

First R-rated film produced by Amblin Entertainment since Letters from Iwo Jima (2006).

Maestro premiered at the 80th Venice International Film Festival on September 2, 2023, where it was nominated for the Golden Lion. It received a gala screening as part of the New York Film Festival’s spotlight program on October 2, 2023, making it the first film to hold a premiere at the new David Geffen Hall. Additionally, Maestro screened at the BFI London Film Festival and closed the AFI Fest.

Maestro was for limited theatrical release in the United States on November 22, 2023, before streaming on Netflix on December 20, 2023.
