Released in Mexico in October, the tragi-comedy quickly racked up ticket sales to become 2014’s highest grossing local pic, attracting 4.2 million admissions and earning some $13 million (189.2 million pesos) to become the fourth top grossing pic in Mexican film history.
Box office was likely stoked by the controversy around Estrada’s latest opus, a thinly veiled critique of the Mexican media, specifically media giant Televisa, and its alleged collusion with the dominant political party in Mexico, the Pri. Televisa’s distrib Videocine backed out of its agreement to release the satire after seeing a cut. Estrada had to distribute pic himself along with indie distrib Alphaville.
Estrada is no stranger to controversy. His previous pics “Herod’s Law” (“La Ley de Herodes”) and “Hell” (“El Inferno”) skewered the »

The May 1 release of Avengers: Age of Ultron marks the "official" start of the 2015 Summer Movie Season and with that in mind, it's only appropriate to offer up a look forward at what's ahead over the next four months. What is ahead over the next four monthsc Well, a lot of movies that cost a lot of money with a few smaller features mixed in for good measure, and as much as some of us may lament the fact studios have become so franchise focused, it's hard not to admit a desire to see some of these bigger features. As a means of whittling down the flock of films arriving over the next several months I've chosen to take a look at my 20 most anticipated, which does mean there are bound to be some titles I probably ought to mention, but didn't make the list for a variety of reasons. »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. "Mulholland Drive." "Donnie Darko." "Spirited Away." "Ghost World." "The Royal Tenenbaums." "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring." "Wet Hot American Summer." "Pulse." "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." If you're not stunned by the sheer variety of greatness in the above list of films, you probably won't be on board with my argument for 2001 as the greatest year in movie history. And if you're puzzled by the exclusion of "A Beautiful Mind," then you might as well stop reading now. "A Beautiful Mind," of course, won Best Picture at the Oscars the following year, an honor that felt undeserved at the time and positively baffles in hindsight. The Ron Howard-directed drama was an ephemeral triumph, the kind of middle-of-the-road Hollywood »

From the festival circuit to your couch on a lazy Thursday afternoon.
While the film hit theaters (to tepid responses by critics) overseas, it had yet to open in American theaters. It was also in the midst of controversy after The Weinstein Company and director Olivier Dahan fought of cuts. Deadline mentions that it is unclear whether Lifetime will use the cut by Dahan or Weinstein’s. The director’s cut was used in the premiere at Cannes.
In an interview with Deadline at Sundance this year, Harvey Weinstein hinted at the possibility that the film could find life on TV rather than a theatrical run. “The script we signed on for was like The King’s Speech, »

Watson stars in the thriller as Angela Gray, a young girl who accuses her father of a horrible crime in 1990.
However, as Detective Bruce Kenner (Hawke) investigates the case, it appears Angela's father has no memory of the accusation.
As a psychologist is bought in to help uncover forgotten events, a much bigger mystery is unveiled.
Regression is released in UK cinemas on August 28, 2015. »
You may recall that Regression was on our list of "2015 Movies That Need to Be on Your Radar." The reason it was on there was simple: Alejandro Amenábar (Thesis, Open Your Eyes, The Others, The Sea Inside) has yet to make a bad movie, and Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson meant the cast was sure to be reliable as well. But when we put Regression on that list, we hadn't seen a trailer, or even stills, from the movie. We were going off the talent involved and the vague premise that it was about a father who is facing jail for committing a crime he has no memory of. Now that we've seen the actual trailer, it's rocketed even further up our list of most anticipated 2015 movies. We were looking forward to it, sure, but we were expecting a crime...

Chilean director Alejandro Amenábar, who directed Open Your Eyes, The Sea Inside, and The Others, goes back to dark atmospheres once again with Regression, which stars Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke. (You’ve seen the picture above, so you probably knew that.) We find their characters in Minnesota in 1990, where Watson’s character accuses her father and others of coercing […]

From the get go, Chilean director Alejandro Amenábar has dabbled with the dark. Be it obsession in Open Your Eyes, one man fighting for the right to die in The Sea Inside or a woman being haunted by ghosts in The Others. Agora was a slightly different beast but Amenábar is returning to his early roots and unleashing, in what I assume will be a very controlled way, terror in Regression.
The movie stars Emma Watson as a young woman who claims to have been abused by her father who says he has no memory of the events but still pleads guilty to the crime. Ethan Hawke plays a cop who is investigating the case. Seems like pretty straight forward stuff until you factor in black masses and possible cult activities which reach well beyond the small [Continued ...] »
Alejandro Amenábar delivered one of the most haunting ghost stories of this century with 2001’s The Others, so it’s fair to say that his upcoming thriller Regression is already on many critics’ lists of films to watch out for this year.
Starring Ethan Hawke (currently Oscar-nominated for Boyhood) and The Perks of Being a Wallflower actress Emma Watson, the film follows a detective investigating a young woman who has accused her father of unspeakable crimes. Today sees the release of the first English-language teaser for Regression, following yesterday’s Spanish preview, and it definitely looks like a film to watch out for.
The moody visuals and suspenseful use of a ticking metronome make this a chilling, if not all that insightful, first look at the thriller, which seems to involve a cult made up of lots of creepy old people. Though there have been more than a fair share »

Yesterday we got our first, Spanish-dubbed look at Alejandro Amenábar's "Regression," and we figured it wouldn't be too long until the English version surfaced. And indeed, twenty-four hours later, you can now get a full feeling for what "The Sea Inside" and "The Others" filmmakers has coming with his latest film, plus a few new pieces of promo material as well. Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke star in this moody, '90s-set thriller about a detective investigating the case of a young woman who accuses her father of a horrific crime. When the father confesses, a psychologist is brought in to dig deeper. What he discovers is something even more far-reaching. And yes, this teaser is pretty creepy stuff, and we like everyone involved, so fingers crossed this one lives up to the promise. "Regression" arrives on August 28th. [Styd] »

Alejandro Amenábar, the filmmaker behind tense debut Thesis, surreal thriller Open Your Eyes (later remade as Vanilla Sky) and fantastic Nicole Kidman creeper The Others is returning to genre with an eerie-looking, 1990-set thriller involving cover-ups and cults. See the first trailer for Regression. Starring Ethan Hawke, David Thewlis and Emma Watson, Regression “tracks detective Bruce Kenner (Hawke) as he investigates…

I don’t know about you, but I love that Ethan Hawke has become somewhat of a genre “Scream King” in recent years. Up next, he and Emma Watson star in Alejandro Amenábar’s (The Others) Regression, and on tap for you… Continue Reading →

So, it's Spanish-dubbed, but the international teaser trailer for "Regression" still makes this film look pretty damn freaky. Amenábar returns to the genre stomping grounds of "Abre Los Ojos" (remade into "Vanilla Sky") and "The Others" in this thriller about a detective (Hawke) whose investigation of a young girl's (Watson) gravely serious accusations against her father (David Dencik) unearths a powerfully scary conspiracy. Hawke's Detective Bruce Kenner is aided by a psychologist (David Thewlis) who performs regression therapy on the father, also uncovering more unhappy memories. On board the creative team are "Pacific Rim" production designer Carol Spier, "The Last Days" Dp Daniel Aranyo and VFX supervisor Felix Berges ("The Impossible"). "Regression" doesn't hit Us theaters until August 28th, 2015 via TWC-Dimension. But then again, we've waited this long. »

Alejandro Amenabar's Regression is one of my Top 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2015. The psychological thriller stars Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke and centers on Detective Bruce Kenner (Hawke) who's investigating the case of young Angela (Watson), whom has accused her father, John Gray (David Dencik), of an unspeakable crime. When John unexpectedly and without recollection admits guilt, renowned psychologist Dr. Raines (David Thewlis) is brought in to help him relive his memories and what they discover unmasks a horrifying nationwide mystery. Amenabar is known for The Others and The Sea Inside and while his last film, Agora, was a bit of a mess I'm really hoping he delivers with this one. Just below is the first international trailer to arrive. Dimension is currently planning an August 28 release. yt id="_t99MPCAo_c" width="640" »

A '90s-set thriller starring Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke, and directed by Alejandro Amenábar? Okay, it's not something we expected, but it is something we're looking forward to. When Amenabar is on his game, he can't be beat. And if this turns out to be even in the same orbit as his terrific ghost story/thriller “The Others,” we're in for a treat. Today the first international teaser has arrived for "Regression," setting the mood for the upcoming picture. The story revolves around a detective investigating the case of a young woman who accuses her father of a horrific crime. When the father confesses, a psychologist is brought in to dig deeper and what he discovers is something even more far-reaching. For now, all we have is the Spanish language dub, but hopefully a domestic version arrives soon. Either way, the atmosphere looks pretty great and this has certainly piqued our curiosity. »

Harvey Weinstein is one of the most powerful, outspoken, and controversial men in Hollywood. The studio executive who launched Miramax and The Weinstein Company is a passionate film lover, a master promoter, a ruthless Oscar campaigner, and just about everything else you need to be in order to make it to the top in the business. Even if you find what he does unscrupulous or the content he produces not very good, it is hard not to admire the man for how successful he has made himself, no matter how frustrating it might be. Weinstein recently had a chat with Deadline, covering a wide variety of topics from the Netflix series "Marco Polo" to the troubles with the upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of Finding Neverland to Oscar campaigning to his reputation of recutting films, giving him the nickname "Harvey Scissorhands." I had no idea the Weinsteins were behind "Marco Polo »

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »

Here’s a brief synopsis of the movie…

Panic stricken, he slowly explains that he is her husband, and that she suffered a terrible accident that has given her amnesia. Every morning, Christine wakes up a stranger, and every night her memories fade into nothing. With the help of Dr Nasch (Mark Strong, The Imitation Game), Christine is trying to regain her memory. That is, until one day, when new terrifying truths emerge that force her to question everyone around her, and what really happened to her on the day of her accident.
