Of all the numerous entries on this list, “A Rainy Day in New York” holds one distinct area: it was ended up and received an official release. But prior to you assume we’re just going nuts from looking into a lot of crushing failures, know that the roadway to release for “A Rainy Day in New York” was a long one, and it included one really controversial cancellation.
The movie was composed and directed by Woody Allen and was planned for broad release in 2018. Starring Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, and Selena Gomez, the premise and trappings were typical of an Allen film: the stars weave in and out of love– or at least the half-hearted, unstable variation Allen favors– while fitting in generous tributes to the fantastic artists of the past and, obviously, New York City. Though vital consensus about the film is that it is a bland, uninspired affair, that isn’t what prevented its release– that was Allen himself.
Allen has long faced scrutiny for alleged acts of sexual misbehavior, most notably the sexual abuse of adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, and in 2018, the #MeToo Movement triggered a revival of interest in those accusations. Since of that, as The Hollywood Reporter put it, supplier Amazon “got cold feet.” Allen took legal action against Amazon, the 2 eventually settled, and “A Rainy Day in New York” was released on Amazon Prime in 2021.
