THE BIKERIDERS captures a rebellious time in America when the culture and people were changing. After a chance encounter at a local bar, strong-willed Kathy (Jodie Comer) is inextricably drawn to Benny (Austin Butler), the newest member of Midwestern motorcycle club, the Vandals led by the enigmatic Johnny (Tom Hardy). Much like the country around it, the club begins to evolve, transforming from a gathering place for local outsiders into a dangerous underworld of violence, forcing Benny to choose between Kathy and his loyalty to the club.—Focus Features

About The Bikeriders Movie:

The Bikeriders is an American crime drama film written and directed by Jeff Nichols. The film features an ensemble cast that includes Jodie Comer, Austin Butler, Michael Shannon, Mike Faist, Norman Reedus, and Tom Hardy.

It tells a fictional story inspired by the 1967 photo book of the same name by Danny Lyon depicting the lives of the Outlaws MC, a Chicago-based motorcycle club.

In October 2018, Jeff Nichols revealed he had been thinking about making a biker film set in the 1960s for five years, although he did not at that stage have a script, and mentioned the idea on the set of Long Way Back Home to Michael Shannon who reportedly told him “You’ve been talking about that damn idea for so long. You’re never gonna make that [film]”.

Principal photography began in Cincinnati, Ohio in October 2022 and wrapped that December. This is Jodie Comer’s fourth movie with Disney, the others being Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Free Guy, and The Last Duel. This is Jeff Nichols’ fifth collaboration with Michael Shannon.

The Bikeriders premiered as the opening film of the 50th Telluride Film Festival on August 31, 2023. It was originally scheduled to be theatrically released on December 1, 2023, by 20th Century Studios, but it was taken off the release schedule due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike, which prevented the cast from promoting the film. Following this, on November 20 that year, it was reported New Regency was shopping the film to rival studios and streamers for release instead and only two days later Focus Features acquired global distribution rights to the film, with its parent Universal Pictures distributing internationally.

The Bikeriders was theatrically released in France and Italy on 19 June 2024; in Brazil, Germany, and Mexico on 20 June; and in the United Kingdom on 21 June 2024.
