Rosamund Pike headlines Radioactive, a film whose cinema release plans had to be changed – the movie heads to on demand next month.
One of the films that was just a week or two away from release when cinemas in the UK shut down back in March was the much looked forward to Radioactive.
Whilst some previous screenings had taken place, the full release hadn’t yet happened for the movie. Now we learn that the film is instead getting a premium video on demand release instead in June.
The film stars Rosamund Pike as Marie Curie, alongside Anya Taylor-Joy, Sam Riley and Simon Russell Beale. Persepolis helmer Marjane Satrapi has directed the movie.
The plan now is that the film will be released on digital download from 15th June 2020. Then, the DVD and traditional video on demand release will follow on 24th July.

We’ll leave you with the synopsis…
From the 1870s to the modern era, RADIOACTIVE is a journey through Marie Curie’s (Rosamund Pike) enduring legacies – her passionate relationships, scientific breakthroughs, and the consequences that followed for her and for the world. After meeting fellow scientist Pierre Curie (Sam Riley), the pair marry and change the face of science forever by their discovery of radioactivity. The genius of the Curie’s world-changing discoveries and the ensuing Nobel Prize propels the couple into the international limelight. From the producers of ATONEMENT and DARKEST HOUR and Academy Award® nominated director Marjane Satrapi (PERSEPOLIS) comes a bold, visionary depiction of the transformative effects and ensuing fallout of the Curie’s work and how this shaped the 20th Century.
