Official Competition Trailer Brings Together Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas in the Upcoming Dramedy
IFC Films has released a trailer for the upcoming dramedy film Official Competition. The film is set to highlight the pains of filmmaking by bringing together some icons of the film industry in Penélope Cruz, Antonio Banderas, and Oscar Martínez. The film is set to arrive in theaters in June after an international film festival tour.
The film’s official synopsis reads:
“When a billionaire entrepreneur impulsively decides to create an iconic movie, he demands the best. Renowned filmmaker Lola Cuevas (Penélope Cruz) is recruited to mastermind this ambitious endeavour. Completing the all-star team are two actors with enormous talent but even bigger egos: Hollywood heartthrob Félix Rivero (Antonio Banderas) and radical theatre actor Iván Torres (Oscar Martínez). Both are legends, but not exactly best friends. Through a series of increasingly eccentric trials set by Lola, Félix and Iván must confront not only each other, but also their own legacies. Who will be left when the cameras finally start rolling?”
Official Competition will be helmed by Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat from a script written by Andrés Duprat. The duo of Argentinian filmmakers previously worked on The Distinguished Citizen with Martinez which earned the actor a Best Actor award at Venice.
Official Competition will arrive in theaters on June 17th, 2022, and will arrive on VOD on August 2nd, 2022. Check out the trailer below:
