Beware of the unseen! In case you’re not so familiar with Sebastian Silva‘s upcoming horror thriller, we’re here to tell you that Magic Magic is currently in post-production, and that the movie will have it’s world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Today, we’re here to share some great pics from the whole thing, and to remind you that Juno Temple, Emily Browning and Michael Cera all star in it!
So, at this moment we know that the movie revolves around a girl vacationing with her friends in a remote area of Chile who slowly starts losing her mental faculties. She tries to get her friends’ attention, but they ignore her until it’s too late.
Not sure, but I think that Temple is that girl named Alicia, described as a young woman who begins to mentally unravel putting herself and those around her in danger. »

Sundance Film Festival is one of the biggest highlights on the calendar for the year in film. Every year, festival-goers venture out to Park City, Utah, and enjoy some of the finest films coming out of the independent industry, from some of the best and most promising filmmakers.
Next month will be no different. We’ve already had a fantastic slew of films announced for the festival in the initial line-up, the Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, and New Frontier categories, and Premiers line-up.
Sebastián Silva’s Magic Magic has long been one of my most anticipated films in production, and I am incredibly jealous of those who’ll get to see it first next month. Starring Michael Cera, Juno Temple, and Emily Browning in the leads, »

A few more intriguing films added to the program of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival to top off an already-outstanding selection of films premiering in January.

The others include Sebastián Silva's Magic Magic (teaser image above) with Michael Cera, Juno Temple and Emily Browning in the Midnight category, the Muscle Shoals documentary, and Wrong Cops from wacky director Quentin Dupieux (Rubber, Wrong).

The world premiere of Muscle Shoals, a documentary from Greg "Freddy" Camalier about the founding of Fame Studios, with appearances by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Gregg Allman and more.

Not sure why these films weren’t part of the original announcements, but as originally predicted (here and here), 2013 Sundance Film Festival has added Quentin Dupieux’s wacko film project Wrong Cops to the New Frontier program and Sebastián Silva will be at Sundance with not one (Crystal Fairy), but two projects (Magic Magic gets added to the Park City at Midnight line-up) featuring Michael Cera. Robert Rodriguez will return with the credit card charged debut film that made a huge impact in his career and in the indie sphere (El Mariachi as ‘From the Collection’ Screening) and the year’s edition is certainly slanted on musical aspect in film as Greg ‘Freddy’ Camalier presents Muscle Shoals in the Documentary premieres section which is perhaps a cousin of the David Grohl film about famed music studios. Here are the last films to be added to a fest which we will »

Now that The Twilight Saga has concluded, what does Stephenie Meyer have to do but kick her heels? Well, she won’t be staying away from the red carpet for long, as another of her novels has been adapted to the silver screen. The Host, directed by Andrew Niccol and starring Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons and Jake Abel, tells the story of an alien being which takes over a human body, only to form a bond with its ‘host’. With a complex narrative and a large, popular cast, this will most likely be nicknamed ‘the next Twilight’ (how imaginative!). However, news has come in that a key character may already have been cast…and it’s ruined the surprise for fans. Of course, don’t read on if you don’t want to have the film/book spoiled.
It has been reported that a certain key character (going by the »

Thanks to Sebastian Silva’s output/frequent visits to Park City, the country of Chile has been well repped at the festival, so after the World Cinema Jury Prize Dramatic winning The Maid (Sundance ’09) and Old Cats (Sundance ’11), his patronage should continue once again with his first English language and genre film Magic Magic starring Juno Temple, Emily Browning, Michael Cera, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Agustín Silva and on the tech side the film is equipped with Cinematographer Christopher Doyle, Editor Alex Rodríguez (Children of Men) and Composers Daniel Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans (Martha Marcy May Marlene).

Among the most talked about film items on crowd-sourcer Kickstarter this year, Belle and Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch’s feature directorial is the type of grassroots English speaking foreign import indie flick the fest likes to make room for. God Help the Girl has been long in the works (Murdoch started writing the songs for the project in 2003) and he was lucky enough to land Emily Browning (Sleeping Beauty) for the lead with Hannah Murray and Olly Alexander (The Dish & the Spoon star we interviewed dropped a couple of musical notes on us) as supporting cast for the Glasgow shot pic which began production in the month of July.
Gist: Set in Glasgow, Scotland, this is Eve (Browning) who is in the hospital dealing with some emotional problems and starts writing songs as a way of getting better. Songwriting becomes her way forward, leading her to the City where she »

Next year's flurry of fairytale film adaptations promises some sinister thrills – but fairy stories have always been dark at heart
Harry's long gone, but wands are still selling. 2013, comme 2012, promises a score of classic fairytale film adaptations – a legion of Pinocchios, Peter Pans, Cinderellas and Wizards of Oz. A cursory squint into the crystal ball that is the Imdb website confirms that most of the upcoming fairytale films will be tormented, adult-oriented affairs; expect the adjective "twisted' to appear with some frequency. The sort of films in which for every lie, Pinocchio has to wash blood off his hands. With sandpaper mittens. That sort of thing.
The Dark Heart of Fairy Tales, a season of older films currently playing at the Barbican, proves Hollywood isn't doing anything new. The screenings mark the bicentenary of the first publication of the Brothers Grimm stories, while acknowledging that popular fairy stories mainly derive »

Actress Emily Browning stunned in an Honor resort dress as she attended the Cfda/Vogue Fashion Fund Event on Thursday night at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. The ‘Summer in February’ star matched the dress with an orange bag and pink shoes as she appeared at the event, which was hosted by Lisa Love and Mark Holgate. Browning is just one actress, including Eva Mendes, Lily Collins and Brie Larson, who is a fan of Honor, the line run by luxury designer Giovanna Randall. The designs are infused with a heritage of fearless women, past and present, and is influenced by Randall’s Italian and Welsh family. Randall is dedicated to the [ Read More ]

Magic Magic may not top the box office (whenever it does eventually emerge from the editing suite) but it’s sure to do very well from the wide popularity of the lead actors, who include Juno Temple (St Trinians, Atonement, The Dark Knight Rises), Michael Cera (Juno, Youth In Revolt) and Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, Lemony Snicket’S A Series Of Unfortunate Events). Though there’s no question of Michael Cera being perhaps the funniest of the geek-chic Hollywood set, his departure from the profitable-though-predictable roles he has played is both a relief and a source of great speculation as to how he will make such a drastic leap from comedy to psychological misadventure.
Magic Magic itself tells the story of a group of friends (Cera, Browning and Temple) who go on holiday to a remote part of Chile, only to find shortly after that Temple’s character has a psychological breakdown, »

With Michael Cera, Juno Temple, and Emily Browning in the leads, Magic Magic has been one of the most promising films going before cameras this year, and one we’ve been really looking forward to for some time.
The psychological thriller is set to give us a very different side to what we’re used to from the likes of Cera, and now the first images of him and Browning have surfaced, giving us a great early look at the film, which tells,
“The chilling story of a young American woman (Temple) vacationing with her friends in a remote part of Chile, who begins to mentally unravel and enters into a world of disturbing landscapes and crushing terror. A destabilizing, psychological thriller recalling the best works in the genre, the film entices viewers into a world they won’t soon be able to forget.”

Great news day for original movies — we have six images from the untitled movie previously known as Magic, Magic. Don’t think we’ve seen Michael Cera in a thriller before.
