Regression, also written by Amenabar, will play out of competition.
In an interview with ScreenDaily, Amenabar’s regular producer Fernando Bovaira (The Others) said of the world-premiere berth: “Alejandro has been in every A- list festival but never in San Sebastian. When they asked us, we just coudn’t say no. Under Rebordinos’ [festival director Jose Luis Rebordinos] watch, we have all seen the festival grow its international impact so we are very happy to be the opening film”.
“It’s a complex film, as all of Alejandro’s films are”, continued Bovaira. “It’s a psychological-thriller »

Madrid — In one of the biggest recent program coups for the San Sebastian Film Festival, the biggest event in the Spanish-speaking world, this year’s 63rd edition will open on Sept. 18 with the world premiere of Alejandro Amenabar’s “Regression.”
“Regression” will play out of competition.
Sold internationally by Glen Basner’s Film Nation, and for many the most awaited Spanish movie of year, “Regression” stars Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson. It will be released in Spain by Universal Pictures Intl. on Oct. 2.
Also written by Amenabar, “Regression” marks his return to the mystery-suspense genre which made his name: Set in Minnesota in 1990, the film stars Hawke as detective Bruce Kenner, investigating the case of young Angela (Watson), who accuses her father, John Gray (David Dencik), of an unspeakable crime.
But when Gray admits his guilt, without recollection, a renowned psychologist (David Thewlis) brought into the case discovers a horrifying »

Remembering is hard for Wes Bentley in “Amnesiac,” but viewers will find it easy to forget this ineffectual mystery-thriller. Helmer Michael Polish and his spouse-star, Kate Bosworth, were reportedly attracted to the project for the change-of-pace role it afforded her. But even beyond its sketchy screenplay, the pic’s main problem is that Bosworth lacks the villainous authority required to make Mike Le and Amy Kolquist’s tricky if undercooked screenplay work. Theatrical launch on Aug. 14 at Los Angeles’ Arena Cinema is unlikely to do much more than raise “Amnesiac’s” profile a tad for its simultaneous home-format release.
After a brief prelude showing an apparent nuclear family unit driving along a country road prior to an accident, Bentley’s nameless character wakes up in an expansive, isolated home under the care of a likewise unnamed woman (Bosworth) who says she’s his wife. He has no memory of their life together, »

Since 2006, Tom Cruise has been reduced to, for lack of a better phrase, a global joke; a quick source for derision, slander, and mockery among the A-List Hollywood performers for the masses to prod at. There was his Jumping the Couch moment on Oprah, the uncomfortable Scientology interview, his termination with Paramount studios, and M:i:iii underperforming at the box office. In short, 2006 was not a good year for the iconic A-Lister.
Despite such set-backs Cruise still produces and stars in critically and financially successful movies, which proves his presence in Hollywood is unscathed. One needs only to look at 2011’s Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which would become Cruise’s highest grossing film to date, or the last few films that have received critical acclaim i.e. Edge of Tomorrow. Further, when one looks at Cruise’s career, one gets a sense that »

Spooky sequel The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death is out to buy this week. One of the noteworthy aspects on the disc is an interview with Jeremy Irvine, the film’s male lead and an up-and- comer who is being watched with great interest.

Thn: Tell us a bit about your character in the film.
Jeremy Irvine: I play Harry. He is, or he appears to be, an Raf bomber pilot… but like all the characters in the film he has his own ghosts and demons, and isn’t quite who he appears to be. At the beginning he’s like the archetypal young hero airman, but then all is not quite what it seems. »

I’ve loved Christopher Eccleston for years. I loved him in Shallow Grave, where he played an unhinged Scot who drilled holes in the attic floor. I loved his brief, disconnected cameo in The Others, and his turn as sadistic Major Henry West in 28 Days Later. His performance in The Second Coming was a literal revelation. I even love him...

We first got a look at Regression, a sinister detective thriller from Alejandro Amenábar (The Others), his first film since 2009, back in February when an international teaser was released. Now this first full trailer pegs Ethan Hawke as a detective investigating a young woman’s (Emma Watson) accusation of her father’s crimes involving a secretive organization and a psychologist (David Thewlis). Here’s the official synopsis:
A father is accused of a crime he has no memory of committing.

Update 6/10/15: The first American trailer is now online. Find it below. Previously: 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...

The beginning of the year saw an international trailer for Alejandro Amenabar's (The Sea Inside, The Others) latest thriller, but now we have a brand new trailer that's sure to send some creepy vibes your way.

The man’s estranged son and other townspeople are also suddenly able to relive suppressed memories of horrific abuse. At the same time, the local news reports blame a Satanic cult that has been perf [Continued ...] »
Coming from director Alejandro Amenábar (Open Your Eyes, The Others), Regression takes us to 1990’s Minnesota where Ethan Hawkes detective Bruce Kenner investigates the case of a young woman Angela (Emma Watson) who accuses her father of an “unspeakable crime”. With both Angela and her father unable to trust their own memories, Kenner brings in a psychologist (David Thewlis) to help them relive their own memories, uncovering a terrifying nationwide mystery in the process. The atmosphere on display in this trailer is incredibly unnerving (no surprise coming from the man who brought us the fantastic The Others), and all the cast, Hawke and Watson especially, put really promising performances. This has all the makings of a genuinely great horror thriller, and the mystery presented is enough to catch your interest. Released: 28th August (U.S.)/ 9th October (Irl/U.K.) »

It's set in Minnesota, 1990. Hawke's Detective Bruce Kenner is aided by a psychologist (David Thewlis) who performs regression therapy on the father, also uncovering more unhappy memories.

In the film, 90s-era detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) investigates Angela’s (Watson) claim that her father committed something terrible – but she can’t remember exactly what. Thrown into a horrifying mystery, Kenner must wade his way through lies, threats, and suspicion before he becomes the next victim of a national conspiracy.
Though we’d really, really like Watson to regress (ahem) into her Bling Ring character’s La drawl – imagine Regression’s Angela confessing to Ethan Hawke, “I think this situation is a huge learning lesson for me.” – just the sheer fact that Emma Watson has a new movie out is enough to have us already in line at the box office.

TWC-Dimension has released a new trailer for the upcoming horror film Regression. From filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar, the director of the brilliant and underrated thriller The Others, this thriller takes place in Minnesota in 1990 and stars Ethan Hawke as a detective who investigates the case of a young woman (Emma Watson) who accuses her father (David Dencik) of an “unspeakable crime.” She has trouble remembering exactly what happened, so Hawke and his team attempt to help her "regress" to recover the memories. The investigation eventually leads to uncovering a horrifying nationwide mystery. This trailer is fantastic, and it shows that genuinely great horror doesn’t have to be milked from jump scares or people in goofy masks. Amenábar lets the atmosphere and performances do all the work, and the result is something that’s unsettling, intriguing, and kind of horrifying. This thing looks great, and as a fan of all involved, »

Fear always finds its victim. TWC-Dimension has released a brand new trailer for Alejandro Amenábar's Regression, which supposedly redefines "thriller". Starring Emma Watson as a girl in Minnesota who accuses her father of an unspeakable crime, Ethan Hawke comes to investigate, but discovers there's more mysterious things going on. This was shot by the filmmaker behind The Others, The Sea Inside and Agora, and he has a sleek style that really stands out. We've seen one international trailer before this one, and it doesn't look so bad. I'm not sure if it really does reinvent the thriller genre, we'll find out soon. Take a look. Here's the newest trailer for Alejandro Amenábar's Regression, direct from YouTube: Regression is written and directed by Alejandro Amenábar. In 1990 Minnesota, detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) investigates the case of young Angela (Emma Watson), who accuses her father, John Gray (David Dencik), of an unspeakable crime. »
