‘Tunnel,’ ‘Boy Missing,’ ‘Chosen’ Screen at Madrid de Cine

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Three much-anticipated Spanish titles — “At The End of the Tunnel,” “Boy Missing” and “The Chosen” — will play at the 10th Spanish Screenings-Madrid de Cine, Spanish cinema’s annual international market. “Boy Missing” and “At the End of the Tunnel” are Hollywood studio releases in Spain.

Unspooling June 27-29, the Spanish Screenings are Spain’s equivalent of UniFrance’s mid-January Rendez-Vous with French Cinema and the U.K.’s London Screenings. They also serve to debate the state of the industry and underscore its key trends.

One seems obvious at this year’s meet: an appetite for thrillers. From the turn of the century, Spain carved out a reputation for horror movies, such as [“Rec”] or “The Orphanage,” which broke out to substantial box office in Spain and abroad. This year, it is thrillers, not chillers or gore, which predominate on the slates of Spain’s top international sales houses.

The move into thrillers is due, »

A Monster Calls Poster Awakens a Wild Creature

16 June 2016 9:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This fall, one of the most unique movies will be, without a doubt, A Monster Calls. The family drama will introduce legendary actor Liam Neeson as a mythical creature who befriends a young boy. Today, we have your first look at the official one-sheet poster, which gives us a sneak peek at this monster in hiding. The tagline promises that 'Stores are Wild Creatures'.

A Monster Calls is a visually spectacular drama from director J.A. Bayona (The Impossible). 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall), dealing with his mother's (Felicity Jones) illness, a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver), and bullying classmates, finds a most unlikely ally when a Monster appears at his bedroom window. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth. Toby Kebbell plays Conor's father, and Liam Neeson stars in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting Monster of the title.

A Monsters Call comes as an interesting change of pace for Neeson, who has become an action icon in the later half of his extraordinary career. The movie is an adaptation of Patrick Ness' beloved novel, with the writer adapting his own screenplay. As of yet, we haven't really gotten a great look at the monstrosity hiding at the core of this heart-tugging fantasy. But he is starting to come into focus here on this teaser.

The movie's story is actually based on an original idea by the late Siobhan Dowd. A British writer and activist, she is best known for a body of work that appeals to children and young adults. A Monster Calls has been published in almost 30 languages, and the novel has won many prestigious prizes worldwide, including the distinguished Carnegie Medal and, for illustrator Jim Kay, the Kate Greenaway Medal.

Bel&#233n Atienza is producing, marking her third collaboaration with Bayona, following The Impossible and his directorial debut, The Orphanage. Executive producers include Participant's Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King, along with River Road's Bill Pohlad and Mitch Horwits. Production on A Monster Calls got under way last September, with principal photography taking place in Spain and England.

A Monster Calls is set for release on October 21, 2016, which puts it up against Lionsgate's Boo! A Madea Halloween Story, Paramount's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, 20th Century Fox's Keeping Up With the Joneses, Universal's Ouija: Origin of Evil and PureFlix's I'm Not Ashamed. Coincidentally, Felicity Jones also stars in Inferno, arriving October 14, meaning she will have two of her projects debut in back-to-back weekends. While we await the next trailer for A Monster Calls, which may give us a better look at this wild creature, take a look at the first poster and marvel at the adventure that awaits.

The impending return of Jurassic Park

8 June 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Dinosaur fans can look to expect many more monstrous treats soon, as recent rumours have surfaced that suggest that we could be seeing a sequel to Jurassic World in just a couple of years.

The 2015 movie made over $1.6 billion in global box office, and Universal Pictures will be hoping that a follow-up will earn them even more cinematic gold alongside its successful adaptations in the realm of online gaming.

Much of the anticipation stems from a sneak preview of a portion of the upcoming movie poster on the Jurassic World official Twitter account. This cryptic poster reveals that the series may be rebranded with a new name, and already the internet is buzzing with rumours as to what we can expect.

What we do know is that the actors Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt will be returning to the series, but it’s the fact that the Spanish film-maker »

Auteurs Go A-List: Arthouse Directors Drive Genre Films at Cannes

10 May 2016 8:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From indies to studio fare, genre films are being driven by auteurs in the Cannes festival lineup and marketplace as never before.

The trend comes on the heels of two record Cannes deals: Paramount’s $20 million North America/China pre-buy of Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi pic “Story of Your Life” in 2014, and Focus Features’ $20 million-plus worldwide pre-buy of Tom Ford’s thriller “Nocturnal Animals” (with a hefty $10 million P&A commitment) last May. With directors like Colin Trevorrow jumping straight from his $4-million-grossing debut, “Safety Not Guaranteed,” to the $1.67 billion-hauling “Jurassic World,” producers are taking bigger chances on smaller, artier names in genre films. And buyers seem willing to gamble along with them.

“We are operating in a world where we typically have to find less-proven talent than studios,” says Glen Basner of FilmNation, which co-produced and co-financed “Story” with 21 Laps Entertainment and Lava Bear Films, and negotiated the “Nocturnal” deal with CAA. »

'Jurassic World 2' Gets 'A Monster Calls' Director J.A. Bayona

18 April 2016 11:36 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's official! Jurassic World 2 will be directed by J.A. Bayona. The news was confirmed on the Jurassic World Twitter account. The filmmaker was rumored to be a frontrunner for the gig earlier this year. Original Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow dropped out of directing the anticipated sequel back in 2015, after it was announced that he'd be taking the helm on Star Wars: Episode IX, the final chapter in the current Force Awakens trilogy. Says the Twitter account.

"We are pleased to announce that @filmbayona will direct the Jurassic World Sequel. 6.22.18."

J.A. Bayona was also committed to directing World War Z 2, which arrives next summer. Because of this, many believed he'd have to pass on Jurassic World 2. But earlier this year, Bayona decided to bail on the Brad Pitt zombie thriller. This opened up his schedule for this dinosaur thriller, which will continue the 'weapons of mass destruction' story thread introduced in last year's blockbuster. »
