Quarenta anos.

Nineteen years after the formation of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke's Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire. Although Obi-Wan sacrifices himself in a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader, his former apprentice, Luke proves that the Force is with him by destroying the Empire's dreaded Death Star.

Happy End

happy end.jpg

A new poster for Michael Haneke's Happy End shows a calm, blissful view of the ocean for a not-so peaceful topic. 

The drama tells the story of a family in Calais during the European refugee crisis. The poster, which seems to show an image that would be viewed through a camera (there's a timestamp at the top and the red recording button at the bottom), may look like a picturesque vista, but those familiar with Haneke's work know to expect that his story is likely to be a dark one.

Written and directed by Haneke, the film will have its world premiere at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival in Competition.

2049

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

From executive producer Ridley Scott and director Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana De Armas, MacKenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.

COLO Trailer #1 - Film by TERESA VILLAVERDE from ALCE FILMES on Vimeo.

 

In his new film, director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished - a radical narration about race in America, using the writer's original words. He draws upon James Baldwin's notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.

"One of the best movies you are likely to see this year."
- Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
