Netflix to release Berlin premiere 'Sunday's Illness' outside of Spain (exclusive)
Film will receive a theatrical release in Spain before going on the VoD platform.

Ramón Salazar’s Sunday’s Illness (La Enfermedad Del Domingo), which had its world premiere at Berlin Film Festival on Tuesday (Feb 20), will be released on Netflix following its theatrical release in Spain.

Netflix initially became involved in the project at a script stage and has now taken world rights. Caramel Films is handling the Spanish distribution and the film is in cinemas from today (Feb 23). It will be available on the Netflix platform globally from June.

There is the potential for the film to travel to further festivals, with a release plan still being ironed out, but there won’t be the possibility for further theatrical distribution outside of Spain.

Sunday’s Illness was produced by Francisco Ramos, who separately is now working with Netflix to develop in-house projects.

The film stars Bárbara Lennie and Susi Sánchez in the story of a woman

Berlin Film Review: ‘Sunday’s Illness’

Berlin Film Review: ‘Sunday’s Illness’
With breathtaking elegance and stunning assurance, Ramón Salazar takes a melodramatic chestnut and makes it flower with unexpected emotion in “Sunday’s Illness,” one of the genuine discoveries of the 2018 Berlin Film Festival. Though hardly an unknown quantity (“20 Centimeters”), and notwithstanding a bid for more serious attention with 2013’s barely seen “10.000 noches en ninguna parte,” the director has been pigeon-holed as an Almodóvar acolyte. That will now change thanks to the way he perfectly calibrates the lives of a wealthy older woman and the daughter she abandoned at the age of eight. Salazar’s exquisite attention to detail reveals itself in the visuals as much as the performances, plus the costume design is knock-your-socks-off memorable.

Working against the film is a bizarre lack of advance buzz going in to the Berlinale, on top of a rather uninspiring title (at least in English). Potentially complicating matters for theatrical distribution is Netflix’s involvement, though it’s unclear

Julieta

Pedro Almodóvar bounces back with an absorbing saga of a mother and daughter told in an interesting style. A woman feels isolated, powerless, alone and anguished about what has happened in her life. Is any of it her fault? Or is all of it her fault? How do we hold relationships together, or do they fall apart no matter what we do? Highly rewarding dramas still exist; they don’t all go begging for Oscar nominations… just learn to read subtitles and you too can find out how the rest of the world lives.

Daily | Pedro Almodóvar’s Julieta

Pedro Almodóvar's Julieta, based on three short stories by Alice Munro and featuring Emma Suarez, Adriana Ugarte, Daniel Grao, Inma Cuesta, Dario Grandinetti, Michelle Jenner, Pilar Castro, Nathalie Poza, Susi Sanchez, Joaquin Notario, Priscilla Delgado, Blanca Pares, Ariadna Martin and Rossy de Palma, opens in Spain today, and we're collecting the first round of reviews in English. For Variety's Peter Debruge, "While Julieta represents a welcome return to the female-centric storytelling that has earned Almodóvar his greatest acclaim, it is far from this reformed renegade’s strongest or most entertaining work. Instead, following the high-altitude frivolity of I’m So Excited, the director’s relatively tame 20th feature finds him once again adopting a serious (read, 'respectable') attitude, eschewing comedy and high-camp melodrama in favor of plain old mellow drama." » - David Hudson

Latest Almodóvar Comedy Has the Director's Biggest Opening-Weekend b.o. in His Native Country

Almodóvar comedy boasts the director's best opening ever in his native country (in euros) I'm So Excited / Los amantes pasajeros , the Pedro Almodóvar airplane-set comedy, had the biggest Spanish debut weekend ever for an Almodóvar film -- in terms of box-office receipts (in euros), though apparently not in actual number of movie tickets sold. Distributed by Spanish branch of Warner Bros., the comedy raked in $2.5 million at 298 venues this past weekend (March 8 - 10), thus trailing only -- and by a very small margin -- the Disney-distributed, Sam Raimi-directed Oz the Great and Powerful, which earned $2.61 million at 649 sites, as per box-office numbers found on the web site Box Office Mojo. (Pictured above: I'm So Excited cast members.) Needless to say, the per-theater average for Almodovar's latest -- despite a number of negative reviews in the Spanish media -- was much higher than the one for the $200 million-budgeted Hollywood flick starring James Franco: $8,415 vs.

Full trailer for Almodovar's latest 'crazy' comedy

Pedro Almodóvar I’m So Excited trailer, with Miguel Ángel Silvestre Pedro Almodóvar’s upcoming movie, I’m So Excited / Los amantes pasajeros (literally, "passing lovers" and/or "passenger lovers") has a new and full trailer. That’s the good news. The not-so-good news (for non-Spanish speakers): it’s in Spanish, without subtitles. (Please scroll down to check out the I’m So Excited trailer.) [Photo: Miguel Ángel Silvestre in Pedro Almodóvar's I'm So Excited.] But don’t feel bad if you don’t speak Spanish. After all, even Spanish speakers will likely have to pay close attention to the one-gazillion-words-a-minute dialogue — which would put James Cagney, Joan Blondell, Una Merkel, et al. to shame. I’m So Excited plot I’m So Excited is set on an airplane flying from Spain to Mexico City. If the trailer is any indication, the plane in question has many more staff members than passengers.

‘The Skin I Live In’ International Teaser Trailer: Crazy, Cool, Creepy

‘The Skin I Live In’ International Teaser Trailer: Crazy, Cool, Creepy
Reviews at Cannes painted Pedro Almodovar's new film, The Skin I Live In, as a muddled but sometimes effective thriller [1]. A new international teaser for the movie has landed, and it certainly hypes up the 'effective' part, even while suggesting the same all over the map tone of which some complained at Cannes. I got a kick out of this teaser because it makes the film look like it has the camp playfulness and style of Mario Bava's wild comic book classic [2] Danger: Diabolik, only filtered through the more intensely psycho-sexual and self-aware viewpoint of Peddro Almodovar. If I saw this without knowing anything else of the film I'd walk away pretty keen to see the film. See what you think, after the break. Ever since his wife was burned in a car crash, Dr. Robert Ledgard, an eminent plastic surgeon, has been interested in creating a new

International Trailer For Pedro Almodovar’s ‘The Skin I Live In’

There are certain movies that, for one reason or another, just make me feel uneasy. Whether it’s the atmosphere, the tone, the people behind it, or the subject matter, they’re the kind of films that one could reasonably call “creepy.” I have yet to see Pedro Almodovar‘s The Skin I Live In, but everything we’ve seen from it so far – from a teaser to some stills – makes me think that it will be one of those films, and for some of the reasons mentioned above. Based on the novel Tarantula by Thierry Jonquet, the movie tells the story of “a plastic surgeon carrying out a vendetta on the man who raped his daughter.”

A new trailer has shown up at Twitch, and it isn’t making me feel any better. There’s something about this that comes off as wrong, but in a good way — maybe

Here are three new clips from Pedro Almodova's The Skin I Live In starring Antonio Banderas.

Teaser Trailer for Pedro Almodovar’s The Skin I Live In

The Skin I Live In, the latest from writer/director Pedro Almodovar, is going to be weeeeeird.  I suppose we knew this from the logline: while plotting his revenge against the man who raped his daughter, a plastic surgeon (Antonio Banderas) imprisons and torments his partner (Elena Anaya) in an operating theater in his basement.  The new teaser trailer drives the point home, packing plenty of disturb into thirty seconds.  The Skin I Live In will premiere later this month at the Cannes Film Festival -- where prior Almodovar movies All About My Mother and Volver have won awards -- before a theatrical release in November. Marisa Paredes, Jan Cornet, Roberto Alamo, Blanca Suárez, Eduard Fernández, José Luis Gómez, Bárbara Lennie, Susi Sánchez, Fernando Cayo, and Teresa Manresa also star in the film, based on the novel Tarantula by Thierry Jonquet.  Watch the trailer after the jump.

‘The Skin I Live In’ Teaser Trailer: Pedro Almodovar Prepares to Creep Out Cannes

‘The Skin I Live In’ Teaser Trailer: Pedro Almodovar Prepares to Creep Out Cannes
The working team of director Pedro Almodovar and actor Antonio Banderas was once potent, and while Mr. Almodovar has continued to make excellent films since their last pairing (Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! in 1990), Antonio Banderas has been slowly defanged over many years. So their reunion was reason enough to celebrate. The fact that their first film together in 20 years, The Skin I Live In, is a very messed-up sounding story about a surgeon and his... unusual... relationships with women make it even more tantalizing. The film premieres very soon in Cannes and has a November release date planned via Sony Pictures Classics in the Us. Now there is a wildly creepy teaser, which you can see after the break. This one is either going to significantly increase your interest in seeing the film, or help that interest dissipate altogether. I don't know about you -- I expect some
