San Sebastian Film Festival to Fete Benicio del Toro

11 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Benicio del Toro will receive a Donostia career achievement award at this month’s San Sebastian Film Festival, the highest-profile movie event in the Spanish-language world.

The actor will attend the fest to present his latest film, Andrea di Stefano’s “Escobar: Paradise Lost,” which will close the Pearls section.

Born in Puerto Rico, the actor grew up in Pennsylvania, and has spent most of his acting career in Hollywood. He has won plaudits for taking on complex roles, and for humanizing anti-heroes such as the cop Javier Rodriguez in Steven Soderbergh’s “Traffic.”

This performance as a Tijuana-based policeman who navigates hazardous legal and moral reefs led him to win the Oscar for best supporting actor and a Golden Globe in 2001.

Del Toro also snagged an Oscar nomination in 2004, portraying a reformed alcoholic who struggles to change course in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “21 Grams.”

Telluride Film Review: ‘Escobar: Paradise Lost’

31 August 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A Canadian surfer finds himself in the deadliest closeout of his life — on dry land — in “Escobar: Paradise Lost,” which imagines that downfall of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (played by Benicio Del Toro) as seen through the eyes of a naive acolyte drawn into his web. The directorial debut of veteran Italian actor Andrea di Stefano (“The Prince of Homburg,” “Eat Pray Love”), “Escobar” offers and Di Stefano’s assured, muscular helming. Pickled up during production by Weinstein Co. subsidiary Radius, this smarter-than-average genre pic (scheduled for a Nov. 26 release) could prove a robust performer in niche theatrical and VOD play, especially if it connects with the large and underserved Latino moviegoing crowd.

It’s fitting that Di Stefano took pause to note the presence of Francis Coppola in the audience for the film’s Telluride world premiere, since one needn’t look too hard to see the lipstick »

Guardians of the Galaxy overtakes Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the highest-grossing domestic movie of 2014

30 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having crossed the $500 million mark earlier in the week, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has now overtaken Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the highest-grossing release of 2014 in North America. Guardians is projected to finish the Labor Day weekend with around $277 million in total, and is expected to fend off competition from The November Man and As Above, So Below to retain top spot over the four-day weekend.

It is also pretty much assured that the space opera will become the first movie to hit $300 million domestically, providing a shot in the arm to the North American box office, which has suffered its worst summer since 2006, with ticket sales down 15% from last year.

Telluride adds Escobar to line-up

29 August 2014 11:29 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Telluride Film Festival organisers have unveiled two late additions to the programme that will premiere in the coming days in a move that could impact on the classification of one Toronto gala screening.

The first is Andrea Di Stefano’s August 30 screening Escobar: Paradise Lost starring Josh Hutcherson and Benicio Del Toro in the tale of an American surfer in Colombia who falls for the drug baron’s niece.

The positioning of the thriller in the Telluride Film Festival invokes the new policy outlined by Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) top brass with regard to films that receive their world premiere in the Rockies.

Escobar is scheduled to screen in Toronto on September 11. That second-week berth is consistent with Tiff’s edict on the positioning of films that will have received their world premiere in Telluride.

However it remains to be seen whether the film’s status – which at time of writing was categorised on the official »

Guardians Of The Galaxy: James Gunn Shares A Behind-The-Scenes Shot Of Him And 'Cosmo'

Perhaps we'll see the Soviet pooch make a return - and telepathically talk - in the sequel?
