Berlin: Luna, Bichir Topline Canana’s ‘Black Minutes’ (Exclusive)

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

Academy Award-nominated Demian Bichir (“A Better Life”), Diego Luna (“Y Tu Mamá También”) and Sofia Espinosa (“Gloria”) will star in “The Black Minutes,” one of two new and high-profile titles brought onto Berlin’s market by Im Global/Canana’s joint sales venture Mundial.

Mexico/L.A.-based, and headed by Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal and Pablo Cruz, Canana also produces “The Black Minutes,” which weighs in as one of the big new players for the U.S. Latino audience, Mexico and beyond.

Mundial will also sell 2016 Sundance-selected “Mr. Pig,” directed by Luna, and starring Danny Glover.

A modern-day film noir and tale of crime, corruption and cover-ups that brings a 20-year-old cold case crashing into the present day, “The Black Minutes” turns on a world weary cop and serial killer confronting past crimes that have tied them together for many years.

8 February 2016 6:06 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” has some new competition on Dec. 16 — Will Smith’s drama “Collateral Beauty.”

Warner Bros. announced Monday that it has moved “Chicken Soup for the Soul” out of the Dec. 16 slot into 2017 and replaced it with New Line’s “Collateral Beauty.” The “Star Wars” spinoff is the only other title scheduled for release that day.

David Frankel is the director of “Collateral Beauty,” which is being co-financed by Village Roadshow. Smith is starring along with Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Naomie Harris and Michael Pena.

Producers are Anthony Bregman, Bard Dorros, PalmStar CEO Kevin Frakes, Allan Loeb and Michael Sugar. Smith will portray a successful New York advertising executive who experiences a deep personal tragedy and retreats from life entirely, prompting his colleagues devise a drastic plan to help him recover.

“Rogue One” is directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz, »

Star Wars: What Do Boba Fett, Imperial Costumes and Eels Have To Do With 'Rogue One?'

5 February 2016 1:50 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This is a column about speculation, spoilers, rumors, hearsay and analyzing the Star Wars Universe. Spoilers, real or imagined, might be found within.  

Let's start by congratulating ourselves : big claps to The Force Awakens for making all that money. I’m not going to be able to say it more concisely than the official press release:

Today, in its 50th day of release, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to cross the $900 million mark at the domestic box office. It is the only film in history to reach this milestone.

In addition, on Saturday (53rd day of global release), Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to reach the $2 billion mark worldwide, becoming only the third film ever to do so and just the second to do it in original release.

We did it, Star Wars fans and creators, we revived the property once again! This time, maybe »

This year's "Indiewire in Conversation at Chase Sapphire on Main" panels at the 2016 Sundance Film festival were concluded with a frank discussion about Diego Luna's third feature film, "Mr. Pig."

10 Bizarre Movie Casting Decisions That Made No Sense

5 February 2016 11:21 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Did you hear the one about Joseph Fiennes being cast as Michael Jackson? Well, turns out it’s not a joke. It has been reported that Ralph’s brother will indeed be playing the King of Pop in the upcoming TV movie Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon, something that, predictably, provoked outrage in certain quarters, with people angry over the decision to hire a white English man to play an African-American musician. For the most part, though, people were just stunned.

Fiennes isn’t alone in being a real left field choice in the world of moviemaking (he’s not even alone in being a bizarre casting choice for Jackson – did you know Diego Luna played Jacko once?). Over the years, producers have been making all kinds of ridiculous casting decisions, swapping gender and even race around like logic was just being tossed to the wind.

It’s happening more and more often these days, »

Here's How 'Rogue One' Pays Tribute to 'Star Wars: A New Hope'

2 February 2016 7:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The heroes in Star Wars love to disguise themselves as villains, and it's a trope that goes all the way back to the 1977 original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. In that movie, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker wear Stormtrooper armor to save Princess Leia from her holding cell on the Death Star. And throughout the franchise, in both the movies and the animated TV series, we've seen other characters follow suit. Now, in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a couple of the heroes will once again be hiding out in Imperial garb to get their job done. And it will be a direct nod to A New Hope. Only this time, there is a little twist.

According to Making Star Wars, there will be a scene in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story where Felicity Jones and Diego Luna's Rebel characters have to go undercover and don disguises. »

The Week in Star Wars – Ewan McGregor talks The Force Awakens, Boba Fett in Rogue One, more movies after Episode IX, Kevin Smith’s role in The Force Awakens revealed and more

31 January 2016 9:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Your weekend edition of The Week in Star Wars has a look at the costumes for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Harrison Ford presenting Star Wars Land, more movies after Episode IX and writer-director Kevin Smith’s role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is finally revealed…

We’re kicking things off this week by looking – get this – past Star Wars: Episode IX. When Disney first announced they’d purchased the rights to make more Star Wars movies, they initially announced a new trilogy to take us up to 2019, which was then followed up announcements for spin-off (or Anthology) movies in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (with rumours of a Boba Fett one in there too). It was assumed by the fanbase that this new trilogy would then mark the end of Star Wars. No so, says Disney’s Bob Iger. »

Lego presentation hints at Boba Fett appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

31 January 2016 3:23 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We already know that Darth Vader is set to feature in this year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now it seems that Lego may have revealed another fan favourite Original Trilogy character will appear in the Anthology movie.

During a presentation at Nuremberg Toy Fair – where several Rogue One costumes are also on display – The Lego Group unveiled some of its Star Wars plans for 2016, with Rogue One accompanied by an image of what appears to be Slave I, which is of course the ship of the fearsome bounty hunter Boba Fett.

Now, this is of course far from confirmation that Boba Fett will feature in the movie, but it’s been said there will be a big focus on bounty hunters, so it’s certainly within the realm of possibility. »

Forest Whitaker's 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Character Revealed?

30 January 2016 10:01 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While we've heard some character names bandied about for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we have no confirmation as to whom anyone of the ensemble cast is playing. Today, we have some inside intel on this first Star Wars spinoff, which reportedly gives us a full character profile on the role being played by Forest Whitaker. And he sounds like a very interesting guy.

Suffice it to say, the rest of this story does contain some Spoilers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. So read on with caution. At first glance, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story doesn't really fit in with anything else Forest Whitaker has done in his career. He's a more serious actor who doesn't usually gravitate to franchise fare. But perhaps he's arrived here due to the fact that the characters in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story are pretty solid, and all a »

Rumoured details on Forest Whitaker’s character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

30 January 2016 8:46 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month, the folks at Making Star Wars posted some rumours about Mads Mikkelsen’s role in the upcoming Anthology movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now the site is back with some minor details about Forest Whitaker’s character.

According to the report, Whitaker’s character is said to be a good guy, who could also be a bounty hunter. A battle-hardened veteran, he has lost a leg and has a robot prosthetic, as well as needing a cane to walk. He also wears a cape, while “his costume is a hodgepodge of different things (think of someone you might see at Maz’s castle).”

Sundance Review: Clea DuVall's 'The Intervention' Starring Melanie Lynskey, Cobie Smulders, Natasha Lyonne, More

29 January 2016 7:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"The Intervention" looks on its surface like a comprehensive Sundance bingo movie. A set of four couples, tied together by family, blood, and friendship, gather at a house in Georgia where three couples plan to ambush the fourth with advice (presumably unwelcome) for divorce. The cast is attractive and youngish, peppered with known names and comedy stars, while the soundtrack features indie pop and new music from Sara Quin, of Tegan and Sara. Read More: Watch: 40-Minute Sundance Filmmaker Talk With Whit Stillman, Diego Luna, And More Don't overlook this film, however, as "The Intervention" is a sharp-tongued and smart observational comedy that marks the feature directorial debut of Clea DuVall, who also writes and co-stars. This nicely-pitched relationship film begins with a question — is there any point to meddling in the relationships of friends and family? — and escalates into a deftly staged indie farce in which the problems nearly every character is. »

While much of the film hubbub has been concentrated on awards season lately, let’s not forget about the essential Sundance Film Festival. Founded in 1978, Sundance now has an attendance of almost 50,000, making it the largest independent film festival in the United States. It's where careers are made, future Oscar contenders are found, and bold new voices emerge. But it's also a home for veterans too.

Sundance Review: Diego Luna's 'Mr. Pig' Starring Danny Glover And Maya Rudolph

28 January 2016 1:44 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The film opens inside a rustic home, filthy and in disarray. Dirty dishes are stacked a mile high, miscellaneous items are randomly scattered across the room, and a sizable bottle of brown liquor appears mostly empty. A sonically assaultive landline telephone begins to ring, waking up Eubanks (Danny Glover). Delaying as long as he can, he ambles into the kitchen, finally answering the phone. It's his daughter, Eunice (Maya Rudolph), audibly exasperated as she asks whether he'll be visiting her and the grandchildren this weekend. Eubanks begins to ramble off reasons why it's going to be difficult for that to happen. They both know the answer, though. He won't be there, and within five minutes, it's clear he never really has been. That guilt, brought on by parental absence, permeates every frame of "Mr. Pig," the latest directorial effort by Diego Luna. And it doesn't go away. Soon we discover »

'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Costumes Arrive at Nuremberg Toy Fair

28 January 2016 8:30 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just before we rang in the new year, production on the first Star Wars spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story wrapped. Now the long wait begins for the first footage. A rumor surfaced earlier this month that the first official trailer will debut in theaters with Captain America: Civil War, but even if that's true, we still have a few months before we get our first look at this anticipated adventure. Thankfully, Entertainment Weekly spotted a number of photos featuring the official costumes from this spinoff, which have surfaced from the Nuremberg Toy Fair.

Unfortunately, these photos don't reveal much about the actual story itself. Rogue One is set between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, centering on a group of Rebels who hatch a mission to steal the original Death Star plans.

‘Mr. Pig’ A Love Letter To Diego Luna’s Father & Mexico – Sundance Studio

Danny Glover plays Ambrose, who on the edge of losing his farm, embarks on a road trip with his large prized pig to find him a new home south of the border.

Sundance Review: Why Culturally Sensitive Road Trip Dramedy 'Mr. Pig' is Diego Luna's Best Film Yet

27 January 2016 12:23 PM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

As far as road trip movies in which two estranged characters reconnect go, Diego Luna’s fourth directorial effort, “Mr. Pig,” is not concerned with eliminating or altering the emotional tropes associated with the works of its kind. On the contrary, the famed actor-turned-filmmaker embraces them with a refreshing cultural outlook in a film that is as much about modernity overshadowing tradition as it is about the sheer magic of an experience rather than its outcome. 

Financially devastated, probably because of his diligent rejection of current farming practices though it’s never specified, Ambrose (Danny Glover) a 75-year-old African American hog farmer from California, heads to Mexico to find his best friend, an imposing dark pig named Howie, a new home and to make some money in return. The man-hog friendship is endearing, but it also points at the profound loneliness Ambrose is struggling with. Howie doesn’t judge or question him and, like good friends should, they both accept their inherent shortcomings – the plump pig hates showers and Ambrose has a drinking problem. It's an odd dynamic, but it seems to comfort the aging and defeated man.

Enduring a few bumps along the road, Ambrose and his beloved animal make it to the Mexican state of Jalisco where he meets with his best friend’s son (played by Mexican actor José María Yazpik), now in charge of the family’s hog business after his father’s passing, to discuss Howie’s future and reminisce about happier times. Noticing that his hog’s destiny in such a modern farm will be one of confinement and isolation, Ambrose reconsiders. While he accepts the fact that their purpose is to feed mankind, he despises the idea of seeing Howie as disposable merchandise.

Soon, Ambrose’s deteriorating health prompts his daughter Eunice (Maya Rudolph) to come down to look after him.  Reluctantly she joins the mission to sell Howie to someone that can give him a life that measures up to Ambrose's standards, while also hoping to get to know her father beyond his charismatic front. Two strangers in a strange land that proves not to be so strange after all.

Leaving behind recent supporting roles that don’t capitalize on the veteran thespian’s abilities, Danny Glover commands the film with masculine fragility. He is not a rigid man on the surface and is particularly tender with Howie, but has managed to selfishly avoid his past failures as a self-defense mechanism. Also granted a prime opportunity to step away from her familiar comical performances, Maya Rudolph takes on a character of whom we know very little except for her desire to seek resolution regarding her father’s abandonment.

Luna has stated that “Mr. Pig” came into existence as a way to honor his father and that of his co-writer Augusto Mendoza. That initial desire to scrutinize the difficulties of parenthood and to build a cinematic bridge between him and his father is absolutely palpable in "Mr. Pig." However, he has also pointed out that this film is a love letter to Mexico, and that it is that second part of his motivation that places the film on a higher ground beyond merely being a touching dramedy about people desperately searching for meaning.

In the hands of a director without a personal connection to Mexico and an understanding of its relationship to its neighbor to the north, the country and its people could have been the victims of insensitive cheap mockery for the amusement of American audiences.  Films depicting Americans traveling to exotic or remote locations tend to highlight the cultural divide between what’s considered modern and acceptable and what they see as archaic or less sophisticated lifestyles. Instead, Luna focuses on the similarities between the two countries on a human level by never alienating its two foreign protagonists and much less his homeland

By the same token, the two American leads are far from the images of Americans we often see in Mexican films and television. These are not the white and ignorant gringos that make racist remarks or patronize the locals and who are always outsmarted by crooked Mexicans. Ambrose and Eunice never show fear or mistrust towards the Mexican citizens they encounter along the road. There is never a comment referencing negative aspects of each country, but the film is rather permeated with mutual appreciation.

Mexico is not depicted as this overly colorful almost caricatured land that’s incomprehensible to Americans. Captured by cinematographer Damian Garcia ("Güeros"), astounding landscapes away from the cities are blended with everyday people in everyday neighborhoods selling food, working at hotels, hospitals, or simply lending these two people a hand without taking into account who they are or where they are from. Using Howie’s inability to return to the United States because he is not legally allowed, Luna makes a subtle commentary on immigration and the ridiculous perspective on borders that countries have which overlook real life beyond politics.

Although “Mr. Pig” leaves some elements and subplots unexplored, such as that of Ambrose's relationship with a Mexican woman in his youth, it also contains several morsels of wisdom related to our search for definite answers or certainty when it comes to interpersonal relationships. Eunice might never have that touching moment she yearns for with Ambrose, but in the quest for it, she might get something much better – his true self. Camilo Froideval quietly affecting score enhances the unfolding family drama on the road with his lighthearted melodies.

A film with such specifically calibrated cultural observations without exhaustive explanation of them could only come from a director with a vision forged on both sides of the dreaded border. Underneath its conventional premise, Luna has taken a step forward in his evolution as a writer-director with a compassionate film that, while not groundbreaking and with some loose pieces along the way in terms of exposition, uses its intimate qualities to speak of humanity at large based on undeniable similarities. If all films about Mexico and the United States could channel a slight portion of the tolerance and sympathy in "Mr. Pig," our distinct traits would be cause for admiration and not fear.

"Mr. Pig" premiered on January 26, 2016 at the Eccles Theater during the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Its international sales agent is Im Global/ Mundial and it is being represented for U.S. by Kevin Iwashina's Preferred Content.
