First Look: Trailer for ‘The Secret in their Eyes’ starring Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejiofor

10 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Here’s a first look at the thrilling crime drama The Secret in their Eyes starring Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

A remake of Juan José Campanella’s 2010 Oscar winning film of the same name (Elsecreto de sus Ojos), the film tells the story of a close-knit team of FBI investigators – Ray (Ejiofor) and Jess (Roberts) – and District Attorney Claire (Kidman) who are torn apart when they discover that Jess’s teenage daughter has been brutally murdered.

After searching obsessively for the elusive killer for over 13 years, Ray uncovers a lead that may finally allow them to resolve the case.

A tale of personal vengeance on the human soul, The Secret in their Eyes is written and directed by Captain Phillips director Billy Ray. In addition to its Oscar winning leads, the film also stars Dean Norris, Michael Kelly, Joe Cole, and Don Harvey.

Exclusive: A dust storm won't stop Nicole Kidman in new 'Strangerland' clip

1 July 2015 2:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Nicole Kidman could have taken her career in a number of different directions, but after dipping her toe in some studio misfires in the mid-2000's she continues to make daring choices that many other actors with her notoriety would shy away from.  In the past two years she's starred in the polarizing "Stoker," the art house hit "The Railway Man," took on "Grace of Monaco" (a film that had a dramatically different original screenplay), made kids tremble as the villain in the family blockbuster "Paddington" and played Gertrude Bell in Werner Herzog's "Queen of the Desert" which debuted at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival.  But, wait.  There's more. Kidman has already finished shooting the big screen adaptation of "Lion," has a significant role in Billy Ray's remake of "The Secret in Their Eyes" and stars opposite Jason Bateman in his highly anticipated drama "The Family Fang" (which has »

Julia Roberts is out for justice and Oscar in new 'Secrets in Their Eyes' trailer

30 June 2015 1:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Remaking a classic foreign film can make any true movie fan shudder. What's the point if original was so good in the first place?  Remaking a recent Academy Award winner for Foreign Language Film is almost worse.  After Stx Entertainment released the first trailer for the Hollywood version of "The Secret in Their Eyes" we may have have to reconsider those initial judgements. Written and directed by Billy Ray ("Captain Phillips," "Breach"), this new version of the 2009 Argentinian art house hit looks much more like an "inspired by" endeavor than a straight adaptation.  The original took place over 25 years and the political context of the different eras in Argentinian history were a key part of the movie's compelling mystery.  Ray's version looks much more like a straight up revenge tale (or at least that's what Stx is selling) and makes us wonder if the twist that so delightfully stunned audiences »

The trailer for The Secret in Their Eyes proves some movies can be remade

30 June 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Back in 2010, director Juan J Campanella won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film for The Secret In Their Eyes. The Argentinean thriller was a powerful drama about murder and revenge. It was one of the best movies of the year which means an English language remake was practically guaranteed. We are all apprehensive any time we heard the words remake or reboot these days, but there are still some... Read More »

First Trailer For Secret In Their Eyes

30 June 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Drawing the basics of your script from a novel that has already been adapted overseas to Oscar-winning effect can be a daunting challenge. But it’s one that Shattered Glass writer/director Billy Ray has taken on with Secret In Their Eyes, bringing Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts along with him. The first trailer has now arrived.Taken from Eduardo Sacheri’s novel La Pregunta De Sus Ojos, this new film is attempting to follow Juan José Campanella’s 2009 Argentinian effort The Secret In Their Eyes, which went home with the Best Foreign Language Film award at the 2010 Oscars. Along with knocking off that initial “The”, Ray tweaked the plot to add in more of a female presence in the lead when Roberts expressed her interest.The story follows similar lines, with Roberts and Ejiofor as FBI colleagues called to investigate a body found brutally murdered and left in a dumpster. »

Woman Seeks Revenge in All Star The Secret In Their Eyes Remake [Trailer]

30 June 2015 9:48 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

The remake train continues to churn along in Hollywood and this time, the powers that be are taking on the 2009 Spanish thriller The Secret in Their Eyes which, upon its theatrical release in North America, made a big splash raking in a nice chunk of change and landing the movie on IMDb's top 250. All of this to say that the original is not some festival favourite few have seen.

The remake is being toted as more of a fresh take on Eduardo Sacheri's novel (which was also the basis for the first movie) about a team of FBI investigators whose lives are turned upside down they're called to a murder scene and discover the body of a teenage girl who happens to be the daughter of one of the investigators.

First Trailer: "Secret in Their Eyes"

30 June 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the most well-regarded international films of the past decade was Juan Jose Campanella's 2009 Argentinean film "The Secret In Their Eyes".

The thriller follows two colleagues called to investigate a body found brutally murdered and left in a dumpster - a body which turned out to be the teen daughter of one of them. Though they have a prime suspect, the case collapses and over the next thirteen years and so begins an obsessional drive to find the truth and resolve the case.

The new film, which comes from "Shattered Glass" writer/director Billy Ray, stars Julia Roberts, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Nicole Kidman along with a slightly shortened title and what is said to be a stronger female presence than the original. Today comes the first trailer for the film which you can see below:

Secret in Their Eyes Trailer: This Movie May Score Julia Roberts Another Oscar

30 June 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Julia Roberts, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Nicole Kidman round out the heavy-hitting cast of Secret in Their Eyes, the upcoming remake of the 2009 Argentinian Oscar winner, El Secreto de Sus Ojos. The trailer for the film, in theaters on Oct. 23, has been released, and it's incredibly dark. Roberts plays an FBI investigator who discovers that her daughter has been brutally killed. Thirteen years after the murder, her colleague (Ejiofor) uncovers a lead that may point to the killer. The movie looks amazing (I can already see this cast touring award season together) but extremely difficult to watch. Until it's released, check out the trailer and Eduardo Sacheri's book, on which the movie is based. »

Julia Roberts Hunts Her Daughter’s Murderer In Taut Trailer For Secret In Their Eyes

30 June 2015 8:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It takes a certain kind of responsibility to carry a badge and a gun. In law enforcement, one must trust in their own moral compass enough to remain impartial and just – even when the circumstances of a particular crime are deeply, devastatingly personal. That’s the dilemma faced by Julia Roberts in this fall’s remake Secret in Their Eyes – an FBI investigator, she’s suddenly faced with her worst nightmare when someone found savagely murdered in a dumpster turns out to be her own daughter. The first trailer for the star-laden thriller fully imparts the horror of her situation.

Chiwetel Ejiofor and Nicole Kidman co-star as the investigator’s partner and presiding district attorney, respectively, both of whom agonize over being forced to let the suspected killer walk free. Neither can let it go – and 13 years later, the partner comes back to the case, having gathered what he believes »

A star-studded remake of the Oscar-winning Argentinian thriller, also starring Nicole Kidman, has Roberts out for revenge against the man who killed her daughter

Given the near universal acclaim that met Juan José Campanella’s 2009 thriller The Secret in Their Eyes, initial reaction to news of a remake was less than enthused.

But with a stellar cast and Billy Ray, the director of Shattered Glass and Breach, on board, it might not be the disaster that many expected. The first trailer for the remake has landed and has Chiwetel Ejiofor and Julia Roberts as FBI investigators working with their Da supervisor, played by Nicole Kidman.

‘Secret in Their Eyes’, American remake of Oscar winner, gets a trailer

30 June 2015 7:39 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The original The Secret in Their Eyes Juan Jose Campanella won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language film, swept the Argentinian equivalent of the Oscars, and now sits comfortably in the IMDb Top 250. Though it didn’t make our list of Top 10 Foot Chases, it has one of the best long takes around and was an incredible mix of romance, suspense, and revenge.

Six years later an American remake has arrived from Billy Ray (Breach, Shattered Glass) starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and the first trailer looks promising. I would’ve never guessed Julia would ever take the role of the hardened detective out for revenge, but here she is. Here’s the full synopsis:

Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, and Chiwetel Ejiofor Get Their Murder-Mystery On in The Secret in Their Eyes Trailer

30 June 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In 2010, Juan José Campanella's El Secreto de sus Ojos won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film. But because Hollywood can't leave a good thing alone, it's now getting an English-language remake directed by Billy Ray. The thriller stars Julia Roberts, an FBI investigator whose teenage daughter turns up dead in a Dumpster. And when Nicole Kidman, the district attorney, can't build a strong enough case against the primary suspect, Roberts's co-worker and close friend, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, goes on a 13-year manhunt for the guy they let walk. Just when they think they've found him and can reopen the case, Roberts goes all The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo to exact "justice" (read: revenge). The Secret in Their Eyes opens October 23. »

New First Look Photos: ‘Secret In Their Eyes’ With Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman & Julia Roberts

In 2009, director Juan J. Campanella and his Argentine crime thriller film, "El Secreto De Sus Ojos" ("The Secret In Their Eyes") scored international acclaim when the critically regarded film went on to win the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Of course, naturally, when a movie’s that good, but not in English, Hollywood assume, and perhaps not incorrectly, that only so many North American audiences will actually watch it. Thus, it’s time for an English-Language remake.

Leonardo Sbaragalia, Rachida Brakni to Star in ‘11,247’

29 June 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – Leonardo Sbaragalia (“Wild Tales”) and Rachida Brakni (“The Straight Line”) are attached to star in “11,247,” a psycho thriller set up at Spain’s Tornasol Films and Argentina’s Haddock Films, producers of Oscar-winning “The Secret in their Eyes.”

Like “Secret,” “11,247” explores what its director, Gabriel Mamruth, calls “the collateral damage” of Argentina’s Dirty War, waged by its Junta dictatorship, with a character setting out to discover the truth behind an life-changing event: Here, the discovery by a Spain-based Interpol agent, that his father, who supposedly disappeared during the dictatorship, is still alive, living under a false identity in Paris.

But when Lucas finally confronts his father, the truth is not as black-and-white as he may have expected, Mamruth explained at Small is Biutiful, a key Spanish film project forum that, part of the Paris Spanish film festival Different 8!, took place Friday in Paris.

Rodolfo de Souza (“Cartagena”) will play Lucas’ father. »

‘The Bronze’ Pushed to October to Avoid Summer Comedy Crush (Exclusive)

28 May 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Bronze,” a raunchy comedy about a troubled Olympic gymnast, will try to stick the landing next fall.

Relativity Studios is moving the film from July 10, 2015, when it was slate to debut in limited release, to October 16, 2015. It will once again debut in a limited cluster of theaters before expanding on October 23, 2015.

The studio was concerned that the film would be overshadowed by an onslaught of R-rated summer comedies like “Ted 2,” “Vacation,” and “Spy,” and felt that October was a less competitive time, according to an individual with knowledge. In its new release date, “The Bronze” can steer clear of the over a dozen comedies all vying for audience attention from May through August. There aren’t as many mainstream funny movies this fall, and its new slot is one vacated by “Vacation,” which moved into July.

The Bronze” will open against the horror thriller “Crimson Peak,” Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies, »

Holidayland at the Box Office

25 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Memorial Day Weekend 4 day estimates are in and though it was a week weekend overall - Tomorrowland was soft which is quite scary since its budget was decidedly not -- but the three top holdovers are all bonafide hits with moviegoers.

Tomorrowland reached for a giant pot of gold, came up short.

Top Five Wide

May 22-25 Weekend

01 Tomorrowland New $41.7 

02 Pitch Perfect 2 $38.5 (cum. $126) Review

03 Mad Max: Fury Road $32.1 (cum. $95.5) Review & Podcast

04 Avengers: Age of Ultron $27.8 (cum. $410.9) Review & Marathon & Podcast

05 Poltergeist NEWbutOLD $26.5 

If you adjust for inflation Avengers: Age of Ultron might end its run as only the seventh highest grossing superhero flick of all time behind (in this order) The Avengers (2012), The Dark Knight (2008), Spider-Man (2002), Batman (1989), Spider-Man 2 (2004), and Superman (1978), though the latter is within reach if it can hold its theaters. Which is not to say that it isn't a massive hit; the sequel shouldn't have any problem »
