'Biutiful' from Iñárritu and Bardem gets first poster!

Easily the most anticipated Latin film this year is Amores Perros, 21 Grams and Babel director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s new film Biutiful starring Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men, Vicky Cristina Barcelona).

The film follows the story of a man involved in illegal activity who is confronted by an old childhood friend, who is now a police officer.

The film is one of five productions in a $100 million deal between Gonzalez Inarritu, Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo del Toro, as well as the film companies Cha Cha Cha, Universal Pictures, and Focus Features International.

Filming for the production began in October, 2008 in Barcelona, Spain and a few months later Javier Bardem suffered a herniated disc on the set on February 12, 2009. He’s all good now and readyto premiere Biutiful at Cannes Film Festival on May 17th.


Here is the first look at some new photos and the first poster.

Spanish film, [REC 2], has new trailer!

Spanish film, [REC 2], has new trailer!

[.REC] was an entertainingly supernasty Spanish zombie-rabies flick, about a group of firemen and residents (and a TV crew) quarantined in a block of flats. The American remake, Quarantine, was the same, but a bit slower.

And here’s [.REC] 2, once again directed by Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza. Picking up a few hours after the end of the original, there’s nothing in this trailer that looks terribly different to what we’ve seen before. We’ve got the military rather than the fire department, but other than that…

However, [SPOILER if you haven’t seen the first film] there is scope for exploring that attic, and the frankly mental Catholic Vatican Possession Virus plot thread that was rather altered for the Americanisation. Horror is often best unexplained, but if we’re going back to those flats, we hope we get upstairs sooner rather than later.

The trailer’s tagline is “se acabo la comedia”. Nice!
