Another star-studded movie is coming soon, titled The End.

When it comes to great ensembles, there are plenty I could point to that would be excellent examples. I could point out the incredible Barbie cast or bring up the incredibly massive Oppenheimer cast, but when you have a great ensemble, usually, a fantastic film follows.

We are getting that now with The End, the latest film that will star Tilda Swinton and several other stars, and is described as a musical that's set during the apocalypse. Let's get into what else we know about this new movie...

What Is The End’s Release Date?

At the time of writing this, April 2024, there is no set release date for The End.

If it does appear on the 2024 movie schedule, it would undoubtedly be in good company with plenty of other great films releasing. From the to the long-awaited Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, to much more, there’s much to look forward to. I could see The End being a part of that.

But until then, we’re not sure when it’ll come out, so we’ll have to wait and see.

The Deadline article from March 2023 confirmed that filming for the new movie occurred in Ireland. Per the site, cameras began rolling once the cast was announced. Deadline also said that filming would continue in Italy and Germany.

We're not sure whether filming has ended yet, as no cast or crew has posted about it on social media, but if the film is expected to be released in 2024, we might get an update on that sooner rather than later.

What are you looking forward to the most about The End? I can’t wait to see how they plan to make this apocalyptic film into a musical, of all things—but there’s a first time for everything.
