Critics describe it as “an engrossing mystery that keeps you guessing until the end.”  Now, local audiences get the chance to unravel the mystery earlier than expected as Where the Crawdads Sing sets sneak previews on September 5 & 6 in selected theaters everywhere.  That’s a full week before the film opens wide across the country on September 14.


Fans may check with their favorite theaters for ticket prices and screening schedule.

Based on the best-selling novel by Delia Owens, Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. “Delia created a classic, timeless story with this book,” says the film’s director, Olivia Newman. “A romance, an underdog story, a murder mystery, a criminal trial, with a distinctive setting that lends to the drama and scope. We wanted to honor that with a faithful adaptation.”


Today’s announcement of the sneaks by Columbia Pictures coincides with the milestone that Where the Crawdads Sing has just achieved last week -- the film has crossed the $100 million benchmark globally.  The gripping drama has now amassed $78.8M domestic (US) and $21.5M from the international box office (Australia, New Zealand and Europe).


It has also been embraced by fans and critics alike with an Audience Score of 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.  “This is a movie about fighting back against male intransigence that has the courage of its outsider spirit,” says the review in Variety, while The Chicago Sun Times writes “Daisy Edgar-Jones’ performance and the gorgeous imagery redeem the book adaptation.”


Underscoring the film’s rich literary origins, The Washington Post likens the film to “a Southern-fried `The Blue Lagoon’ meets `Murder, She Wrote’ — and topped off with a sprinkling of `To Kill a Mockingbird.’”


Finally, Coming Soon attests that “a captivating lead performance and a powerful ending ultimately keep this movie watchable for any fans of Delia Owens’s fascinating novel,” while National Post concludes, “over its two-plus hours I sat spellbound and intrigued. If a film can be described as a page-turner, Where the Crawdads Sing is that.”
