We Love The First Trailer For Morbius Starring Jared Leto

I can’t tell you how excited I am by the first trailer that dropped on Monday for Morbius starring Jared Leto.

Hitting theaters on July 31, 2020 it is one of my most anticipated films coming up this summer.

One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

The film also stars Matt Smith, Jared Harris with Tyrese Gibson. The film is helmed by Daniel Espinosa who directed Life.

Michael Keaton's Vulture Returns in First Morbius Footage

  • MovieWeb
Sony Pictures has released the first Morbius trailer and it came with several big surprises. Not the least of which was the rather unexpected cameo at the end from Michael Keaton's Adrian Toomes, aka Vulture, who we last saw in Spider-Man: Homecoming. With that, it seems two universes are about to collide, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Morbius takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There is a lot to unpack here.

First, let's go over the Michael Keaton cameo itself. After the title card is revealed, we cut to a sequence with Adrian Toomes standing by what looks to be a police vehicle of sorts as Jared Leto's Morbius approaches. It's not explained why the two are meeting, but the last time we saw Adrian Toomes, he was in prison. So we're guessing someone had to bust him out of prison in order for this interaction to take place.

Film Factory Snags Toronto Platform’s ‘Moneychanger,’ Drops Trailer (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Madrid — Film Factory Entertainment, a premiere sales agent of Spanish-language films, has acquired sales rights to the U.S., Europe and Asia on Federico Veiroj’s “Asi habló el cambista” (“The Moneychanger”) which has just been announced as one of the 12 titles playing Toronto’s prestigious Platform program.

Buena Vista Intl. will release “The Moneychanger” in Latin America. World premiering at Toronto, “The Moneychanger” will also play the New York and San Sebastian festivals, featuring in the latter’s Horizontes Latinos section.

Veiroj’s fifth feature – after “Acne,” “A Useful Life,” “The Apostate” and “Belmonte” – “The Moneychanger” most certainly marks a step-up in scale and move towards the mainstream while retaining his hallmark sense of humor in a buoyantly withering chronicle.

Written by Veiroj, Arauco Hernandez, a writer on “A Useful Life” and cinematographer on “The Moneychanger,” and Martín Mauregui, co-scribe on Pablo Trapero’s “Lion’s Den,” “Carancho” and “The White Elephant,

HBO Europe Greenlights ‘Patria,’ Its First Original Production in Spain

  • Variety
HBO Europe has greenlit “Patria,” its first original series out of Spain, to be written and produced by Aitor Gabilondo (“El Príncipe”) and directed by award-winning helmers Pablo Trapero and Félix Viscarret (“Under the Stars”).

The eight-part series adapts author Fernando Aramburu’s 2016 novel of the same name, one of the most acclaimed of recent Spanish bestsellers. Variety reported on the development of the project last year.

Trapero, a leading light of New Argentine Cinema who won a best director plaudit in Venice for “The Clan” in 2016, will serve as lead director. Trapero has made movies that deal with weighty social and political issues but appeal far beyond art-house audiences, such as Cannes competition contender “Lion’s Den” and Ricardo Darin-starrer “Carancho.” Viscarret, a Goya award winner who helmed the Caribbean noir series “Four Seasons in Havana” for Tornasol, will direct some of “Patria’s” episodes.

Pablo Trapero's Melodrama La Quietud to Team Martina Gusmán and Bérénice Bejo

Pablo Trapero To Direct Imposter Tale 'The Man In The Rockefeller Suit'

Mark Seal's book, "The Man In The Rockefeller Suit," is one that Hollywood has been trying to crack for a while now. At one time attached to Scott Cooper (before he would go on to direct "Out Of The Furnace"), Walter Salles was linked to the film way back in 2013 with his longtime collaborator Jose Rivera penning the script. Now, three years later, the project is back to life with another big name behind the camera.

Incaa leadership switch in wake of Macri election

Cacetta becomes the fifth Incaa head since 2003.

According to the Buenos Aires Herald, Argentina’s culture minister Pablo Avelluto said Cacetta’s five main goals would be to: broaden theatre audiences through innovative productions; develop multi-platform content; expedite private investment; ‘federalise’ and promote regional productions through Incaa subsidies; and take local productions to regional and global levels.

Watch: The Criterion Collection Looks At New Argentine Cinema & Lucrecia Martel’s 'La Ciénaga'

Aside from Brazil and Mexico, Argentina has had perhaps the most well developed Latin American base for popular cinema, and it’s been home to a number of respected filmmakers for many years now. The late Fabien Bielinsky from Buenos Aires made a nice, twisty con man film in the form of 2000’s “Nine Queens,” and Juan José Campanella took home an Oscar for "The Secret In Their Eyes." Pablo Trapero has broken out with "Carancho" and "White Elephant." But Perhaps one of the most underappreciated filmmakers from this region is Lucrecia Martel. She made a splash with her gentle, disturbing debut, “La Cienaga,” or as it translates in English, “The Swamp.” An actual swamp does figure in the movie’s plot in the early goings, but the title has a metaphorical resonance as well: “La Cienaga” is a slow-moving, largely plotless mood piece that drops in on one particularly

Light emerging from the shadows: Sos staff members share their thoughts on noir

Film noir. What is it? What are its defining characteristics? What films best express its qualities? Sex appeal, violence, cynicism, anti-heroes, femmes fatales, bleak commentary on modern society, maddening twists of fate that perpetuate one’s misery, running away from danger yet never making any ground…noir is and represents a wide variety of things, so much so that film experts do not even agree on whether it is a genre unto itself. (Two of the leading voices, James Ursini and Alain Silver, agree that it represents a movement rather than a definable genre.) For well over two years now, Sound on Sight has hosted the Friday Noir column which, on a near-weekly basis, has covered a great many noir entries of the commonly recognized classic period (1941 to 1959) as well as sizable portion of neo-noirs. Slowly and steadily, the column has explored the extremely exhaustive catalogue of titles with still many to come.

'Party Girl' to get the party started in Un Certain Regard at Cannes
Hard to believe that the Cannes Film Festival is just a month away -- before you know it, people will be cranking up the Oscar conversation again. The full lineup will be announced in Paris on April 17, but another nugget was revealed this morning. The opening film of the theoretically secondary, but increasingly prestigious, Un Certain Regard competition will be a French title: "Party Girl," the joint directorial debut of Marie Amacoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis. In recent years, Cannes has sometimes kicked off Ucr with a big-name auteur title: Gus Van Sant's "Restless" and, last year, Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" both took the slot, as a kind of compensation for the directors being demoted from the main Competition. The more left-field selection of "Party Girl," says the festival, is indicative of the section's mission to expose fresh talent. The film is a mix of fact and fiction,
