It’s been a few years since we’ve heard from Chilean/Spanish filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar. He had major international success with the horror/thriller "The Others" with Nicole Kidman in 2001 and "The Sea Inside" in 2004 which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film and tons of praise for Javier Bardem’s astonishing performance. But 2009’s “Agora” came and went in the U.S. with little fanfare (this was pre Oscar Isaac as a star), but Amenábar is returning to the thriller genre with “Regression,” an English-language effort starring Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson. And as a TWC-Dimension picture, it sounds like a psychological genre film more than straight psychological drama though the official word dances around that possibility carefully. Here’s the official synopsis: Minnesota, 1990. Detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) investigates the case of young Angela (Emma Watson), who accuses her father, John Gray (David Dencik), of an unspeakable. »

When Emma Watson is in a movie, you know we're already like "Accio tickets!" no matter what. Add Ethan Hawke and another "Harry Potter" alum, David Thewlis, and you have "Regression," a dark thriller whose first official trailer just came out and gave us the heebie-jeebies.
In the movie, directed by Alejandro Amenábar ("The Others") and scheduled for an August 28 release, Hawke plays a detective investigating the case of a young woman (Watson), who accuses her father (David Dencik) of an unspeakable crime. When the father unexpectedly admits guilt without remembering what really happened, a renowned psychologist (Thewlis) is brought in to help him relive his memories. A horrifying nationwide mystery is revealed, and it's all teased in this trailer.
So here's 2 minutes of murky mystery -- plus Emma working an American accent:

Judging by this new trailer and striking first poster for the film, Spanish-Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar is clearly traumatising poor Emma Watson in his new psycho-drama Regression. Like Nicole Kidman in The Others, Watson will be going through the emotional mill as a young woman with an agonising history of domestic abuse. Click on the YouTube to watch it in full.Watson plays Angela Gray, a woman who accuses her father (Daniel Dencik) of sexual abuse. He submits to the investigation by Hawke's detective, although he has no recollection of the alleged events. So the stage is set for regression therapist David Thewlis to pick through Dad's repressed memories and uncover a disturbing conspiracy.The gifted Amenábar made his debut with the serial killer thriller Tesis in 1996, and followed it a year later with the compelling, and subsequently remade Open Your Eyes. Since then The Others, The Sea Inside and »
So far, there’s only been one trailer for Amenábar’s newest film, and Good Lord in Heaven does it look tremendous. Amenábar inspires a deep well of faith in me. I’m absolutely thrilled that his newest project is a horror film focusing on the occult. It’s one of my favourite cinematic and literary subjects, and I simply can’t get enough. Of course, most of these horror films are low-grade, disappointing b-films, so this feels like we’re in for a treat – we might be getting not only a good horror film, but a great one. The official release date is August 28, 2015, and I couldn’t be more excited. One of the greatest modern horror films is Amenábar’s The Others (2001) – a World »

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, »

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 ...] »
