This weekend, the film opens in theaters in Colorado, Kansas, New York City, Texas, and Virginia. By September 22nd, it will have opened in theaters in Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee, giving most of the U.S. a chance to see the film.
