Mubi, Studiocanal Strike Streaming Deal for Hundreds of Movies (Exclusive)
Wim Wenders’ “Wings of Desire,” Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “Amores Perros” and the Coen brothers’ “Blood Simple” will play on boutique streaming service Mubi after it struck a major content deal with Studiocanal.

The multiyear deal will give Mubi ongoing access to a raft of Studiocanal-distributed titles. The exclusive Svod agreement covers territories including the U.K., France, Germany, Italy and Latin America.

Despite its growing library, Mubi offers subscribers only 30 films at a time, dropping one title and adding another every day to keep the lineup fresh. The Studiocanal deal expands the library with films from Inarritu, Wenders, Pedro Almodovar, Werner Herzog, Jean-Luc Godard, and Jean Cocteau. The first of the new crop of movies will appear on the service in July. Mubi founder Efe Cakarel did the deal.

“It’s such a thrill to be able to share this incredible catalogue of European and world cinema auteurs, classic and contemporary,

Gael Garcia Bernal Blends Genres in Auteur Vehicle ‘Here on Earth’

“Here on Earth,” a political thriller that is an auteur turn from Gael Garcia Bernal, will bring much needed star power to the Croisette during the international TV Canneseries festival.

Produced by Fox Networks Group Latin America (Fngla) and Mexico’s La Corriente del Golfo, “Here on Earth” is more than just a star vehicle. In industry terms, it’s a high-end scripted drama. In political terms, it skewers Mexico’s ruling elite, turning a spotlight on the horse-trading, influence peddling, luxury, blackmail and murder — ferociously unexpectedly or hauntingly casual — practiced by one of Mexico’s most influential families whose patriarch,

Natalia Almada’s “Everything Else” Acquired by Cinema Tropical

“Everything Else”

Natalia Almada’s narrative debut has secured U.S. distribution. Cinema Tropical snagged the rights to “Everything Else,” a press release announced. After making its world premiere at the 2016 New York Film Festival, the award-winning drama went on to screen at fests including Rio de Janeiro, Palm Springs, and Göteborg.

“Everything Else” sees Oscar-nominated actress Adriana Barraza (“Amores Perros,” “Babel”) playing Doña Flor, a 63-year-old bureaucrat who lives in Mexico City. Barraza, whose outstanding acting career includes films with renowned international filmmakers such as Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Sally Potter, Robert Duvall, and Sam Raimi, delivers a bravura performance in her first starring role, in a nuanced and non-stereotypical character for a Latina actress. The pic explores her interior life “as she awakens from her bureaucratic malaise and yearns to become visible again,” according to its official synopsis. “Inspired by Hannah Arendt’s idea that bureaucratic dehumanization is a brutal form of violence,

Guillermo del Toro Holds Masterclass, Opens Theater, Announces Scholarship at Guadalajara

Guillermo del Toro Holds Masterclass, Opens Theater, Announces Scholarship at Guadalajara
Guadalajara — Excitement surrounding Guillermo del Toro’s presence at Mexico’s Guadalajara Festival reached fever pitch by the end of last week. The genial four-times Oscar winner did not disappoint.

Del Toro received a rousing standing ovation when he made his first appearance at this year’s 33rd edition of the Guadalajara Film Festival. It had long been planned that the director would come back to his home town to open a theater in his name and give a masterclass. That was before the genial Mexican won best director and best picture at last Sunday’s Academy Awards.

Spots for Saturday’s scheduled masterclass filled immediately when an astounding 30,000 requests for entry were made in the first half hour. In typical selfless fashion, del Toro offered to host another, and when that one filled, he volunteered for a third. All free of charge, and open to the public, including at

Monica Lozano’s Alebrije Cine & Video to Remake Argentina’s ‘El Garante’ (Exclusive)

“El Garante” (“Collateral Man”), possibly the most-awarded local mini-series in Argentina’s TV history, is getting a Mexican version with Mexican uber producer Monica Lozano of Alebrije Cine & Video (“Instructions Not Included,” “Que Culpa Tiene el Niño,” “Amores Perros”) exploring a film makeover of the 1997 series.

Jose Levy of Creative Andina and Alex Ferrara co-wrote a novel based on the series, sold by Amazon on its Best Latino Thrilllers Collection and available in English, Spanish and Turkish. Alebrije is basing its film adaptation on the book, said Lozano.

Chile’s Tvn already made its own version of the Argentine hit in 2005 where it ranked second in overall ratings that year, after a telenovela. Spain’s Morena Films has also optioned the show for its own TV version.

“How such a cult series in Argentina has been able to appeal to various territories, in whatever format, is great,” said Levy who

Three Amigos Take Hollywood: Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar Wins Are a Big Deal For Latinos in the Film Industry

Three Amigos Take Hollywood: Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar Wins Are a Big Deal For Latinos in the Film Industry
Collectively known as the Three Amigos, Mexican directors Alfonso Cuarón, Alejandro González Iñárritu and Guillermo del Toro are now the Three Oscar-winning Amigos. On Sunday’s telecast, Guillermo del Toro, the genre filmmaker who prefers to tell stories about soulful monsters and monstrous villains, walked away with two of his film’s four Oscars, Best Director and Best Picture. For a filmmaker whose work is more personal than commercial or prestigious, joining his compadres in the winner’s circle was a symbolic win for Latinos so often left outside of Hollywood.

Guillermo del Toro (‘Shape of Water’) may finally join his ‘Amigos’ Alfonso Cuaron & Alejandro G. Inarritu as an Oscar winner

Guillermo del Toro (‘Shape of Water’) may finally join his ‘Amigos’ Alfonso Cuaron & Alejandro G. Inarritu as an Oscar winner
Will Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”) finally join his filmmaking friends Alfonso Cuaron and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu in the pantheon of Oscar winners this year? If our odds are to be believed, he’s a strong front-runner to snag Best Picture, Best Director, and maybe even Best Original Screenplay for his romantic fantasy about a mute janitor (Sally Hawkins) in love with a fish man. And just think, it was a little more than a decade ago, in 2007, that the Three Amigos of Cinema, as they like to be known, were competing alongside each other for their 2006 films “Babel” (Inarritu), “Children of Men” (Cuaron) and “Pan’s Labyrinth” (del Toro). Two of them were first-time Oscar nominees that year. Now, by March 4, they could all be Oscar winners.

“There was a moment [in 2006] where we all felt like a historical weight,” del Toro recalled in our recent video interview

International Newswire: Genre, Sci-Fi, Thrillers Rise in Latin America, and Beyond

In today’s International Newswire, Latin America sees the rise of genre filmmaking, Film4 strengthens its exec team as it enters awards season, and FremantleMedia inks a scripted deal with 87 Films.

Genre filmmaking is becoming a more commercially potent force in Latin America and elsewhere as digital distribution gains strength.

At last week’s Mar del Plata Film Festival, of 12 Argentine movie projects presented at one of its main pitching sessions, over half were horror or thriller movies, including some of its most notable titles, whether Paula Martel’s assassination suspenser “First We Take Anillaco,” Rosendo Ruíz’s neo-noir “Boom Boom,” or Maximiliano Anríquez’s post-apocalypse low-fi sci-fi “The Doggy.”

Genre in its widest sense, embracing horror, thrillers and sci-fi, is the film type of choice for Latin America’s newest generation of filmmakers. Drawn from all over Argentina, the directors and producers behind the projects at Mar del Plata are almost all under 40.

Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Bottle Rocket (Wes Anderson)

Wes Anderson’s feature debut, the slyly comedic Bottle Rocket, positions its heroes, three young wannabe criminals with an eye for small-scale robberies, as blind innocents, lost in the unfamiliar world of adulthood. As part of his 75-year plan, Dignan (Owen Wilson) forms a gang, consisting of himself, Anthony (Luke Wilson) who’s fresh out of a voluntary psychiatric hospital, and Bob (Robert Musgrave) who

2017-08-30T11:47:12-07:00What's New on Netflix in September?

There's not much happening at the box office this weekend, but there's plenty happening, movie-wise, at home thanks to Netflix. The people at The Verge have given us this helpful list of all the new content coming to Netflix in September, along with some of the new gems coming to Amazon and HBO, too.

Via The Verge.

The seventh season of HBO’s Game of Thrones is now over, sending the world careening into a hopeless content abyss. At this point, even the summer movie season isn’t around to lend any help. Desperate moments like this make it crystal clear why having multiple streaming services to choose from is a good thing.

Netflix is bolstering its movie selection in the coming month, adding films like Dead Poets Society, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Amores Perros, and all four Jaws movies.
