Netflix’s first Spanish original TV series, “Las Chicas del Cable,” which became available to subscribers April 28, captures the excitement of a technological revolution, imagining a plush 1928 Madrid where four young girls work as switchboard operators at Spain’s first nationwide telecom. Targeting female telenovela-sated audiences worldwide with upscale romantic melodrama, “Las Chicas del Cable’s” central issues remain, however, startlingly familiar: Machismo, pre-destined love and broken hearts.
Fast-forward 90 years from 1928 and Spain is caught in another cable revolution: VOD. Netflix entered Spain in October 2015; HBO España, a standalone streaming service, followed suit last November; Amazon Prime Video a few days later.
Netflix has bought bullishly, acquiring dozens of films from top Spanish companies, reportedly often paying premium prices. It has produced its first Spanish original movie, workplace thriller “7 Días.” But that buying spree may be over.

All five backed Sorogoyen’s latest 2016 release, “May God Save Us,” a harrowing serial killer thriller which, consolidating Sorogoyen’s reparation as a director to track, was distributed by Warner Bros. in Spain, won best screenplay at September’s San Sebastian Festival last year and was still racking up international sales for Latido at this week’s Berlin European Film Market.
The lead producer on “May God Save Us,” Gerardo Herrero and Mariela Besuievsky’s Tornasol Films, an arthouse institution in Spain, produced Juan Jose Campanella’s “The Secret in Their Eyes,” which won an Academy Award for best foreign-language film in 2009.

Longer, darker and closer to what came before, the extended version of Batman Forever sounds interesting at the least...
Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever was a divisive movie, to say the least, and one that we’ve debated the merits of before on this site. But even those of us who like the film (this writer included) would be quick to admit that it’s nowhere near the brilliance of the preceding brace of Bat-movies from Tim Burton.
It’s intriguing to hear, then, that the original cut of Batman Forever weighed in at 2 hours 40 minutes. That’s 38 minutes of extra footage that never made it into cinemas; enough missing minutes to significantly alter the film. Would the original version of Batman Forever have garnered more love?

Even as it was, Star Wars: Rogue One was a pretty dark and intense affair. This is, after all, a movie that reveals the human cost behind the stolen plans for the Death Star - plans that formed the jumping-off point for the much breezier New Hope. But looking back through Rogue One’s earlier trailers, there are hints here and there that Gareth Edwards’ prequel - the first in a planned series of A Star Wars Story spin-offs - might have been darker still as initially conceived.
