The release date for George Miller's 'Three Thousand Years of Longing' has been pushed up ...

Your desire to see George Miller's high-fantasy film Three Thousand Years of Longing early has been granted. It premiered at Cannes earlier this year to good reviews, and was originally scheduled to go to cinemas on August 31 as one of the last films of the summer months. Now, Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba will arrive five days early, on August 26.

Dr. Alithea Binnie (Swinton) follows a strange story from her Istanbul vacation. She first meets a powerful Djinn (Elba), who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom. She's also aware that wishes can go horribly wrong if the wisher ignores them.

Three Thousand Years of Longing is a film based on the fantasy short story "The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye" by A.S. Byatt. Trailers highlight the film's weird and fantastical visuals, as well as the strong performances of Swinton and Elba at the core of it, which is still an indication of quality.

Augusta Gore, a newcomer co-writer, and Kevin Sun, the executive producers in Mad Max: Fury Road, have joined Miller to compose the music. Matteo Bocelli, Andrea Bocelli's son, has performed an original song for the film titled "Cautionary Tale."

With Three Thousand Years of Longing on the horizon, Miller is still firmly anchored in the Mad Max universe, among other things. For the time being, the celebrated director will be back on the big screen sooner than expected.
