In den Newsbits: Eine neue Adaption von William Goldings Herr der Fliegen von Luca Guadagnino und welche Details Once Upon A Time In Hollywood zum Teil des Tarantinoverse machen.
A haunting horror fairytale set against the backdrop of Mexico’s devastating drug wars, TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID follows a group of orphaned children armed with three magical wishes, running from the ghosts that haunt them and the cartel that murdered their parents. Filmmaker Issa López creates a world that recalls the early films of Guillermo del Toro, imbued with her own gritty urban spin on magical realism to conjure a wholly unique experience that audiences will not soon forget.
• Derzeit ist wahrscheinlich nicht die schlechteste Ära, um Herr der Fliegen von William Golding neu zu verfilmen: Luca Guadagnino (Call Me by Your Name, Suspiria) to Direct ‘Lord of the Flies’ Movie for Warner Bros. Das Studie hatte vor ein paar Jahren eine genderbent Version angekündigt, was wohl verworfen wurde. Guadagninos Verfilmung soll sich dicht am Original-Stoff orientieren. Gute Entscheidung, wobei eine Gewaltstudie im Mikrokosmos gestrandeter Schülerinnen sicher nicht uninteressant gewesen wäre.
