‘Next Door’ Review: Daniel Brühl Plays Himself, Sort of, in His Directorial Debut

‘Next Door’ Review: Daniel Brühl Plays Himself, Sort of, in His Directorial Debut
Many of us have, at one point or another, been stuck in a bar argument that went on a bit too long, that got a bit too hostile, with someone we didn’t know too well — and it’s rarely a memory to be treasured. Would it help if the guy at the other end of the beery debate was the handsome, accomplished, generally likable German-Spanish thespian Daniel Brühl? “Next Door,” in which Brühl puts a thinly disguised version of himself through the psychological wringer, suggests not. The actor’s slender, self-reflexive directorial debut transitions from a low-key meditation on the privileges and perils of stardom to a far-fetched stalker drama in the time it takes to down a few pints, all while rarely leaving the confines of one scruffy Berlin dive bar. Yet the film’s games of genre-shuffling and celebrity self-satire can’t override the essential tedium of its core conflict.

Daniel Bruhl on Using Words as Weapons in Directorial Debut Black Comedy ‘Next Door’

Daniel Bruhl on Using Words as Weapons in Directorial Debut Black Comedy ‘Next Door’
In the black comedy thriller “Next Door,” the directorial debut of actor Daniel Brühl, the main character, Daniel, is a successful actor living in an old quarter of Berlin. His day is about to be ruined, and his life too. Variety spoke to Brühl – whose upcoming acting credits include “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” and Matthew Vaughn’s “The King’s Man” – about the film, which plays in competition this week at the Berlin Film Festival.

Daniel, played by Brühl, seems to be remarkably similar to Brühl in real life – he is of German-Spanish heritage, the hit that launched his career was a “Stasi comedy,” and since then he has acted in Hollywood movies and series. But this is not Brühl, but a “heightened” version of him, the actor-director says.

The film starts with Daniel sitting in his beautiful Berlin apartment, preparing to fly to London to audition for a Hollywood super-hero movie.

AMC CEO Adam Aron Says New Financing Deal Means Imminent Bankruptcy Is ‘Completely Off the Table’

AMC CEO Adam Aron Says New Financing Deal Means Imminent Bankruptcy Is ‘Completely Off the Table’
AMC Theaters delivered a sobering message last December, warning that the world’s largest cinema chain could run out of cash by early 2021 due to mounting challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic. On Monday, the company announced a reversal of fortune. It raised nearly $917 million in funding since then, allowing AMC to avert bankruptcy for several months.

It’s a promising development for a beleaguered company, yet AMC and the rest of the film exhibition industry are hardly out of the woods — even with the ongoing vaccine rollout. The news of AMC’s debt and equity financing comes shortly after MGM postponed the release of “No Time to Die” for a third time, the latest bump moving it from April to early October. Bond’s vacancy sparked a release date exodus from the first half of the year, with “Morbius,” “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” “The King’s Man” and “A Quiet Place Part II

John Krasinski’s ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ Delayed Again to Fall
John Krasinski’s “A Quiet Place Part II” has been delayed again, this time to Sept. 17.

The film had its world premiere March 8, 2020 and was scheduled to hit theaters that month, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was rescheduled to September 2020. However, last July, Paramount announced it would be moving the film’s release to April 23, 2021 — its most recent release date.

In March, Krasinski said, “One of the things I’m most proud of is that people have said our movie is one you have to see all together. Well due to the ever-changing circumstances of what’s going on in the world around us, now is clearly not the right time to do that. As insanely excited as we are for you all to see to see this movie, I’m gonna wait to release the film til we Can all see it together! So here’s to our group movie date!

‘A Quiet Place 2’ Gets New Release Date

‘A Quiet Place 2’ Gets New Release Date
Add “A Quiet Place Part II” to the growing list of 2021 films that have already been delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Paramount’s post-apocalyptic thriller — directed by John Krasinski and starring Emily Blunt — has been postponed for a third time. It will now open in theaters on Sept. 17.

A Quiet Place 2” was initially slated to release last March, but those plans were abandoned in the 11th hour as the heath crisis first started to grip the United States. It was most recently moved to April 23, however that date recently started to look unlikely considering coronavirus cases are still on the rise.

With the surge in Covid-19 infections, moviegoing has been slow to return in the United States. That means studios still don’t feel confident in releasing their buzziest movies on the big screen. Currently in North America, around 65% of movie theaters remain closed, and cinemas that have

‘No Time to Die’ Sets Off Another Round of Big Movie Delays – When Will Box Office Recover?

‘No Time to Die’ Sets Off Another Round of Big Movie Delays – When Will Box Office Recover?
MGM on Thursday announced what has been expected for weeks: The 25th James Bond film, “No Time to Die,” is moving again from April to October 2021. That kicked off a new wave of postponements of major Hollywood titles: Universal moved Tom Hanks film “Bios” from April to August; Sony delayed five of its upcoming films, including “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” and “Peter Rabbit 2;” and Disney pushed at least three films from its spring slate, including “The King’s Man.” For studios, the reality has set in that the coronavirus vaccine will not be rolled out quickly enough to reopen the roughly two-thirds of North American movie theaters that remain shuttered because of the pandemic. And that means holding off on unspooling any big titles to mostly dark theaters. “The news that there wasn’t a solid vaccination plan in place when the new administration arrived is just confirmation that spring was too
