Toronto Facetime: Alejandro Amenabar

  • Variety
On Oct. 12, 1936, as Spain’s Civil War raged, the aged Spanish writer Miguel de Unamuno, rector of the University of Salamanca, rose to address rebel General Francisco Franco’s fascist supporters, declaring that he abominated their cause.

He risked execution with his insanely brave speech. It marks the climax of “While at War,” directed by Alejandro Amenabar. The first Movistar Plus Original Film, which carried one of biggest budgets of a Spanish movie in 2019, the psychological thriller, shortlisted as Spain’s Oscar entry, world premieres at the Toronto Film Festival as a Special Presentation. Variety spoke to Amenabar.

While at War” marks your return to Spanish-language filmmaking 14 years after the Oscar-winning “The Sea Inside.” Why now?

It’s always a question of the story: Finding something, real or invented, through which to express myself. I knew nothing about Unamuno’s speech. But I dug deeper, out of simple curiosity. My

IFC Midnight Buys Survival Thriller ‘Radioflash’ (Exclusive)
IFC Midnight has acquired U.S. rights to “Radioflash,” a survival thriller starring Dominic Monaghan and Brighton Sharbino, Variety has learned. The company will release the movie on Nov. 15.

The film imagines a dystopian future, one in which an electric-magnetic pulse strikes America, knocking out all the power and pushing the country into the Dark Ages. Reese (Sharbino), a tech-savvy teenager and her father Chris (Monaghan) flee the city, and seek refuge with her grandfather deep in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Safety proves to be hard to come by.

“With a genre film, the type we have seen before, the challenge is to make it different,” director Ben McPherson said in a statement. “I wanted this film to be unpredictable and disorienting so that the viewer like the protagonist never knew what was around each corner. There is never a moment in the film where we are certain about who we can trust,

Missing the Starks Already? They're Returning to Star in the Game of Thrones Prequel

  • Popsugar
In the long, cold, seemingly endless weeks since Game of Thrones ended, we've been waiting for any and all news about the HBO's upcoming Westeros-inspired prequel, and it's finally here! The nameless series, which is currently filming in North Ireland, will take place roughly 5,000 years before Game of Thrones and delves into the early history of the Seven Kingdoms - so a few of our favorite families don't even exist yet!

Because it's set so far back in the past, the show will take place before even House Targaryen and its dragons graced Westeros. But what does this mean for our other favorite Thrones families? "The Lannisters aren't there yet, but Casterly Rock is certainly there; it's like the Rock of Gibraltar," Martin said. "It's actually occupied by the Casterlys - for whom it's still named after in the time of Game of Thrones."

George R.R. Martin Reveals Details for Game of Thrones Prequel Series

Joseph Baxter Jul 9, 2019

Surprising new details have been confirmed about the currently-in-production prequel series for Game of Thrones.

Game of Thrones may have reached its (understandably divisive) coda in massive pop-culture-proliferating fashion, but the mythology of HBO’s global television juggernaut isn't going away, with a yet-to-be-titled prequel series – filled by an intriguing cast headlined by twice-Oscar-nominated A-lister Naomi Watts – already in production in Northern Ireland at this very moment. While, obviously, information about the series resides in a closed book, the literary creator himself, George R.R. Martin, just dropped major details!

Some revelatory plot points have been divulged about the Game of Thrones prequel series in an interview with EW with Martin, the author of the TV mythos’ A Song of Ice and Fire source material novels, who also serves on the HBO spinoff series as an executive producer. While it has already been revealed that the series will

Game Of Thrones Prequel Will Feature White Walkers And The Starks

While many fans are still trying to rid their mouth of the sour taste left by the show’s final season (I know I am), it looks like HBO is moving forward with a Game of Thrones prequel, which is rumored to take place 10,000 years before the story laid out in A Song of Ice and Fire. Of course, there’s still plenty up in the air, as the network has remained rather quiet on the specifics of their new show.

That being said, it’s not as if viewers have been left entirely in the dark. Developed under the codename ‘Blood Moon,’ HBO’s spinoff already boasts a stellar ensemble cast, including Naomi Watts, Josh Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Alex Sharp, and Toby Regbo. Recently, series creator George R. R. Martin shed some more light on the upcoming prequel,

George R.R. Martin Confirms Starks, Direwolves, and More Details for the Game Of Thrones Prequel

Thanks to George R.R. Martin, we have a few new details to share with you regarding HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series that is currently in production.

Martin is calling the untitled series “The Long Night,” which is the era that the story is set in, which is about 5,000 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and this is going to be a very different Westeros that won’t be familiar to fans. It’s explained:

“Westeros is a very different place. There’s no King’s Landing. There’s no Iron Throne. There are no Targaryens — Valyria has hardly begun to rise yet with its dragons and the great empire that it built. We’re dealing with a different and older world and hopefully that will be part of the fun of the series.”

George RR Martin Says ‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel Includes the Starks, Direwolves and White Walkers
HBO’s untitled Naomi Watts-led “Game of Thrones” prequel pilot may not have Targaryens and dragons — but it does have Starks, direwolves and, of course, White Walkers.

“The Starks will definitely be there,” George R.R. Martin, co-creator and executive producer on the project alongside showrunner Jane Goldman, told Entertainment Weekly in an interview published Tuesday.

“Obviously the White Walkers are here — or as they’re called in my books, The Others — and that will be an aspect of it,” the “A Song of Ice and Fire” author said, adding: “There are things like direwolves and mammoths.”

George R.R. Martin Confirms ‘Thrones’ Prequel Features Starks, 100 Westeros Kingdoms, and More
The super-secretive “Game of Thrones” prequel television series just got slightly less mysterious thanks to franchise creator George R.R. Martin. The author is behind the upcoming series alongside showrunner Jane Goldman and shared some new facts to Entertainment Weekly about what “Thrones” fans can expect in the prequel. The biggest revelation is that the Stark family, a driving force behind HBO’s flagship “Game of Thrones” series, will be featured in some capacity in the prequel story.

“The Starks will definitely be there,” Martin said. “Obviously the White Walkers are here — or as they’re called in my books, The Others — and that will be an aspect of it. There are things like direwolves and mammoths.”

The prequel takes place thousands of years before the events of “Game of Thrones.” According to Martin, the setting means this version of Westeros has far more than just the seven kingdoms “Thrones” fans are used to hearing about.

Supervized Trailer: Bridges & Berenger Are the Oldest Heroes in Town

A brand new trailer for Supervised has arrived online. Superhero movies are the biggest thing in Hollywood right now and they've been that way for more than a decade. At some point, studios are going to have to find ways to try and reinvent the genre in order to give audiences something a little fresh. That doesn't always mean better, but it's an inevitability. In this case, Lionsgate is giving us a look at some Hollywood veterans as retiree superheroes. To what degree that may be appealing, as presented, very much depends on the viewer's sensibilities.

The trailer begins with a look at a retirement home specifically designed for superheroes who have aged out of the job. Their powers are being kept in check and everyone seems to be pretty miserable. It's not long before we realize that something isn't as it seems and a few of these old-school heroes

Modern Spanish Horror Pioneer Narciso ‘Chicho’ Ibáñez Serrador Dies at 83
Spanish cinema has lost an understated giant with Friday’s passing of genre film and TV pioneer Narciso “Chicho” Ibañez Serrador, dead at the age of 83.

Although he only filmed two features, both stand out as milestones in the country’s early genre cannon, 1970’s “La Residencia” (“The House That Screamed”) and 1976’s “¿Quién puede matar a un niño?” (“Who Can Kill a Child?”).

The films anticipated Spain’s surge in upscale genre auteur, and helped evolve the medium from quickly produced hack-and-slash fare intended to make a quick buck at the box office, to films with aesthetics, psychology and humanistic narratives that stood and stand out in international cinema.

In Spain he is equally well-regarded for his work in TV with programs such as “Un, dos, tres… responda otra vez,” in its time the biggest game show in Spain, and the legendary horror series “Historias para no dormir”.

Beauty vs Beast: The Kindness of Strangers

Jason Adams from Mnpp here, using this week's brand new "Beauty vs Beast" poll to celebrate the 48th birthday of the great Sofia Coppola, which is tomorrow. We are so lucky to have her! Quite honestly I think the world's been under-valuing her directing career, which's given us one great film after another after another. Her last one, 2017's remake of The Beguiled, is where we're focusing today -- another entirely under-appreciated one if you ask me. While I've long been a fan of Don Siegel's sweaty 1971 version I consider Coppola's an improvement for how it spins itself off into a gothic fable of female empowerment gone to seed. It feels like a sister film to Nicole Kidman's other movie about haunted folks isolated during war-time, The Others -- seriously, go watch them back to back. That'll be an excellent evening at the movies. But until then...

Aquaman 2 gets December 2022 release date, new characters rumoured

Having signed up screenwriter David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick earlier this month, Warner Bros. and DC Films have now set a release date of December 16th 2022 for their Aquaman sequel, where they will be hoping the movie can replicate the success the first film enjoyed over the holiday period.

James Wan is overseeing development on Aquaman 2, but at this point it hasn’t been determined whether he’ll be back in the director’s chair. He will however be producing both the sequel and the spinoff film The Trench with Peter Safran.

It is of course very early days on Aquaman 2, and unlikely that any specific story details have been finalised yet; however, fan site The Aquaverse is claiming that the sequel will feature an appearance from The Others, a superhero team created by Geoff Johns for the New 52 universe who Aquaman assembles in his fight against Black Manta.

Spain’s Goya Awards Crown ‘Champions’

Spain’s Goya Awards Crown ‘Champions’
Madrid — Javier Fesser’s “Champions” won best picture at the 33rd Spanish Academy Goya Awards, having seemed to have been locked out of major awards.

“Champions” entered the ceremony as most probably the favorite in one of the most open fields in recent years, given the diversity of best picture contenders in artistic and industry terms.

But, produced by Morena Films, Películas Oendelton and Movistar +, “Champions” had already been selected by the Academy as Spain’s Oscar entry and had proven a blockbuster hit on home turf for Upi Spain, earning €18.5 million ($21.1 million). Selling near worldwide, the comedy turns on an off-the-rails Spanish coach sentenced to train a basketball team of special-needs players.

Before director Javier Fesser climbed onto the stage on Saturday night to take best picture, however, the film had won just two of 10 nominations, for breakthrough actor (Jesús Vidal) and song (Coque Malla’s “Este es
