Film Factory Takes Four-Pic Apache Slate (Exclusive)

13 May 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Vicente CanalesFilm Factory Entertainment has sealed a four-movie output deal with Enrique Lopez Lavigne’s Apache Films.

Presented to buyers by Canales at Cannes, the quartet is led by “The File,” a real case-based horror movie from “(Rec)” co-director Paco Plaza, and “The Singer,” a dark women’s drama from Carlos Vermut.

Also on the slate: “Maus,” a fantasy horror first feature from short film director Yayo Herrero (“Picnic,” “Safari”), and “The Call,” an offbeat musical comedy, the debut of actors Javier Calvo and Javier Ambrossi.

Vermut’s third feature, “The Singer,” is a tale of a world-famous singer, Lila, who loses her memory in an accident. Her number one fan, Eva, helps her to remember who she was.

Presented via a teaser at Cannes, “Maus” centers on a couple, Alec and Sasa, who are vacationing in Bosnia-Herzegovina when Sasa, a Muslim survivor of the Balkan Wars, senses a mysterious force pursuing them. »

Want a quality action film, but you only have an hour and a half? Step this way...

Looking back over the genre, action films definitely haven’t suffered from the trend to make everything longer. They’ve always been pretty long, regularly clocking in at over two hours. Perhaps because of all the slo-mo? But while the sweet spot for action classics seems to be the 100-110 minute mark, there are those that have cut the genre right down to basics, and succeeded all the more for it.

Below is my pick of 25 great action films 90 minutes or under. Even more so than other genres, action crosses many other films - picking a pure ‘action’ flick is all but impossible. So below I’ve chosen films that retain action sequences as their main narrative device, and keep the action at the heart of the movie, rather than as a extra. »
