It was distributed by Focus Features. Robert Cort and Jonathan King serve as producers. Jeff Skoll, Daniel Stiepleman, Betsy Danbury and Karen Loop are executive producers.

Directed by Justin Baldoni (Jane the Virgin), Five Feet Apart is inspired by real life couple Dalton and Katie Prager who both suffered from cystic fibrosis. The film stars Haley Lu Richardson (Columbus) and Cole Sprouse (Riverdale). The film earned multiple nominations for both stars at the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards and the 2019 Teen Choice Awards.

The film is based on a screenplay by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis and produced by Cathy Schulman and Baldoni. Five Feet Apart is produced by CBS Films, Welle Entertainment and Wayfarer Entertainment and distributed by CBS Films and Lionsgate.

The Upside is director Neil Burger's heartfelt comedy about a recently paroled ex-convict (Kevin Hart) who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a paralyzed billionaire (Bryan Cranston).
