Location Basque Country: Some Key Locations

24 September 2017 11:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Sebastian — Bizkaia’s 10th century chapel of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, built on a rock in the sea, served as one of the real-life locations for Dragonstone, the home to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) in Season 7 of “Game of Thrones.”

Over July to October 2016, production teams at HBO and Spanish services company Fresco Film established one of “Game of Thrones” production headquarters in Bilbao, also filming series’ scenes on the beaches of Muriola, in Bizkaia’s Barrika, and Itzuru, in Gipuzkoa’s Zumaia, which boasts a singular geo-park featuring Flysch rock formation.

ABC’s “The Bachelor” also filmed at San Juan de Gaztelugatxe this year.

High-profile international shoots in the Basque Country have some standout precedents. In the early ‘70s, Dustin Hoffman and Steve McQueen spent nearly a week in Hondarribia, a Gipuzkoan town near the French border, shooting Franklin J. Schaffner’s prison drama “Papillon.” Hondarribia, alongside San Sebastian and Zarauz, was »

Location Basque Country: A Tale of Three Provinces

24 September 2017 11:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Sebastian — The three Basque provinces, Alava, Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa, share green and mountainous landscapes and one of the more attractive tax credits in Spain: a 30% tax shelter for local film, TV and animated productions. Their respective film commissions are teaming to co-ordinate in joint actions for international promotion under the Film Basque Country umbrella. “We are not competitors but strategic allies,” says Bizkaia’s Bilbao city councilor Xabier Ochandiano. But there are some nuances in each territory’s film offer.

Alava

Vitoria, capital of the Basque Country, is re-launching its film office, as the big-screen adaptation of best-selling novel “El silencio de la ciudad blanca,” a benchmark for the city’s image, is scheduled to roll there by next year.

The feature adaptation of Eva García Sáenz de Urturi’s crime-thriller book, “El silencio” is produced by Atresmedia Cine, the powerful film arm of Spanish broadcaster Atresmedia, in partnership with Barcelona’s Rodar y Rodar (“The »

Terror in a Texas Town

26 July 2017 11:04 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

On paper it’s a western with everything — a major star, decent supporting players, a cult director and sideways references to the blacklisting years. But even with its ya-gotta-see-it-to-believe-it high noon showdown scene, Joseph H. Lewis’s last feature film is still a lower-tier United Artists effort. Sterling Hayden goes up against Sebastian Cabot and Nedrick Young, armed with a, with a . . . aw, you probably know already.

Laniakea Capital Launches with TV Drama ‘Strange Fishing Days’ (Exclusive)

19 June 2017 11:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leveraging the Basque Country’s advantageous tax regime, Laniakea Capital, a new Bilbao-based film and TV label run by Eduardo Carneros (“Timecrimes”) and Alejandro Miranda (“Buried”), is making its producing debut with sci-fi TV drama “Strange Fishing Days.”

The project has been selected to be pitched at Conecta Fiction, the new Latin America-Europe TV drama forum which runs June 20-23 in Galicia’s Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

“Strange Fishing Days,” a social allegory, weighs in as low-fi sci-fi embodying multiverse theory.

The series follows Alejo Caminos, an astrophysics teacher, who suffers a deep existential crisis. He constructs a machine that allows him to experience other versions of himself in multiple alternative realities which could have been his life, if his decisions and circumstances had been otherwise.

Created by Javier Echániz (“Tiempo si aire”), Asier Guerricaechebarria (“Tinguaro: The Sun Lizards”) and María Maestre (“Las Acacias”), each series’ episode will focus »

The Indian Fighter

5 May 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Kirk Douglas grits his teeth and goes full macho, wrasslin’ with that beautiful Sioux up in the high country — the Sioux miss in question being the Italian model Elsa Martinelli in her screen debut. Kirk can’t decide if he wants to stay with Elsa, or lead what must be the most shameful bunch of pioneer bigots ever to cross the plains. Walter Matthau and Diana Douglas are standouts in this vigorous action western directed by André de Toth.

Twilight Time, bless ’em, hands us another treat to go with their 3-D discs of Man in the Dark, Miss Sadie Thompson and Harlock Space Pirate 3-D — and this time it’s a fun bit of 1950s horror — with a hot pair of short subject extras.

There have been plenty of theories as to why horror films became scarce after WW2; it’s as if the U.S. film industry took a ten-year break from the supernatural, and partly »
