Now that the World Cup is over, for Mexico that is, it's time to get back to the movie theaters!
This week marks the wide release in Mexico of several worth while films, including the latest work of such auteurs as Sono Sion and Lars von Trier. There's also stuff from Hollywood, a Spanish box office hit, and a Mexican rom-com. You can find the details and Mexican trailer for each effort in the gallery below, as well as a ScreenAnarchy review whenever possible. There's plenty to choose from!
All the films will be released in Mexico on Thursday, July 3.
Why Don’t You Play In Hell (dir. Sono Sion, Japan, 2013)
After being exhibited in Mexico as part of FICUNAM, Riviera Maya, and Cineteca Nacional’s Muestra 56, Sono Sion’s Why Don’t Play In Hell is finally opening at regular cinemas. I had the chance to watch it during FICUNAM, and it’s definitely one of the most fun times I’ve had this year at the movies. Really great film and, certainly, this is the last chance to watch it on the big screen.
Why Don’t You Play In Hell is distributed in Mexico by Interior 13, under the title Vamos a Jugar al Infierno (Let’s Go to Play In Hell).
