A Monster Calls In October Of 2016

Focus Features has announced that it will release its dark fantasy adaptation A Monster Calls, to be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, on October 16th, 2016.

Excepting superhero blockbusters and animated family flicks, no other major studio release has been dated as far as October of 2016, so Focus Features’ early scheduling indicates that the studio is highly confident in A Monster Calls‘ ability to break out at the box office.

The film was adapted from the novel of the same name by Patrick Ness, which was in turn inspired by an idea by Siobhan Dowd. Described as a “visually spectacular drama,” A Monster Calls focuses on a young boy who, reeling from his mother’s terminal cancer diagnosis and severe bullying at school, escapes into a fantastical world filled with sinister monsters. When one particularly horrific creature begins to appear outside the boy’s window every night, the two form a »

With Darren Aronofksy's "Noah" storming into theaters this weekend, plus the arrival of a new trailer for the latest weather disaster entry "Into the Storm," we've rounded up some clips from titles in the Meteorologic Mayhem genre, dominated by prescient disaster king Roland Emmerich ("The Day After Tomorrow," "2012"). Non-Emmerich entries include Wolfgang Petersen's "The Perfect Storm," Kevin Costner headliner "Waterworld," animated "Ice Age: The Meltdown," Juan Antonio Bayona's emotion-wrenching portrait of the Thailand tsunami "The Impossible" (starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts) and that flying-cow Ilm classic "Twister," which helped to inaugurate sell-the-vfx-before-the-movie marketing.  What's your fave weather disaster film? What have we left out?  For its part, "Into the Storm" is helmed by Steven Quale ("Final Destination 5").  Richard Armitage (Thorin from the "Hobbit" films) stars.

‘Spanish Affair’ Sets Box Office Records in Spain

17 March 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid –Distributed by Universal Pictures Intl. Spain, Spanish romantic comedy “8 apellidos vascos” (Spanish Affair) has punched the best domestic opening of any film this year: grossing €2.83 million ($3.9 million) off 400 screens its first three days, per Rentrak.

“Affair’s’” first weekend is also the best for any Spanish film in nearly a year and a half, since Juan Antonio Bayona’s “The Impossible” made an extraordinary four-day opening of $13.1 million – on its way to a final $54.5 million trawl.

Vicente Canales’ Film Factory has acquired international rights to the comedy hit.

What’s particularly impressive about “Affair’s” bow is its timing. At least 23 movies bowed to €5 million plus in Spain over 2006-12.

That was then. Spain’s box office sagged terribly in 2013, as the consequences of crisis bit ever deeper into Spanish wallets, and has shown little recovery this year: Of high-profile titles, “300: Rise of an Empire” set the bar »
