Earlier the movie was about to release on September 20, but then it was pulled up and now the movie will release on August 9. The movie is going to be a rare high-profile period drama that is going to release with other summer blockbusters like Quentin Tarantino's 1969 set project 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'. WB and New Line are confident about 'The Kitchen', especially now when they have scheduled the film to premiere over a busy weekend in August. The movie will be competing against Disney's Artemis Fowl and Lionsgate's Scary Stories to Tell In The Dark, along with an addition to 'Hereditary' director Ari Aster's new horror film 'Midsommar'. However, the biggest competition for 'The Kitchen'  is going to be Richard Linklater's 'Where'd You Go, Bernadette'.

'The Kitchen' stars Melissa McCarthy, Elisabeth Moss, and Tiffany Haddish. The amazing trio will be joined by an equally talented cast, including Common, Domhnall Gleeson, Margo Martindale, Brian d'Arcy James, and James Badge Dale. In this movie, Haddish and McCarthy are trying something new by cutting off from their comedy roots and trying their hands on violent crime dramas. The fact that this movie explores the themes from the comics about gender through a courageous story set in Hell's Kitchen circa the 1970s,  'The Kitchen' as a movie adaptation is going to have a lot of things to look forward to and explore.

The three wives in the movie, Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss, are the wives of Irish mobsters. These mobsters have taken over organized crime operations in the 1970s in New York City's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood. Their husbands are soon arrested by FBI. However, this does not stop the wives from taking Irish Mafia's into their own hands, where they show their hidden and surprising talent of running the rackets to outwinning the competitions.
