Pablo Trapero’s ‘The Clan’ Slays Tom Cruise in Argentina

21 August 2015 2:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Distributed by Twentieth Century Fox, made by the producers of “Wild Tales” and bowing Aug. 13, Pablo Trapero’s “The Clan” sold 504,000 tickets over in its first four days in Argentina, setting a new record for the best opening ever of an Argentine movie.

Total first week gross is around 825,000 admissions, said Film Factory’s Vicente Canales, movie’s sales agent.

Running up this record, “The Clan,” a dark abduction thriller, slaughtered “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation” (400,000 in 12 days) and came out of the gates even bigger than Damian Szifron’s “Wild Tales,” 10% up on its “Wild Tales’’” first-frame 450,000 admissions.

Produced – like “The Clan” – by Buenos Aires’ K & S Film, the Almodovars’ Madrid-based El Deseo and Argentine broadcaster Telefe, as part of Telefonica Studios’ drive into movie investment, “Wild Tales” went on to sell 3.45 million tix in Argentina last year, becoming the highest-grossing Argentine film in history. “The Clan” is also co-produced by Fox International Productions. »

13 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Toronto International Film Festival has, through its run, divided the films into numerous programmes to better identify and group together like-minded features. One of the new additions to the programme in 2015 will be the Platform selection, which will showcase films with a strong directorial vision. What is unique about this programme is that the selected films, twelve in total, will be judged by a three-person jury during the event, with the top film taking home a $25,000 prize. The first ever group of judges at the 2015 event will be comprised of filmmaker Jia Zhang-ke, whose 2000 film Platform was cited as the inspiration for the programme, alongside filmmakers Claire Denis and Agnieszka Holland. The lineup for the Platform was announced today, and can be seen below, alongside their official synopses.
