Movie premieres: ‘Flee’ arrives today, the wonderful flick that broke Oscar barriers, and the other 18 things you need to know about new in theaters


With a new Friday on the calendar, a fresh ration of billboard releases are coming to theaters dominated by “Uncharted” and clamoring for a good handful of titles that give competition and box office gravy. . Then I give you some keys on the feature films we receive this February 18.

The previews of February 18, 2022

‘Death on the Nile’ (‘Death on the Nile’, 2022)

{“videoId”:”x87w43w”,”autoplay”:false,”title”:”Death on the Nile (2022) – VOSE Official Trailer”}

  • “Death on the Nile” is the sequel to “Murder on the Orient Express”, also directed by Kenneth Branagh and released in 2017.

  • The film was supposed to be released in 2019, but has been in the fridge so far after being delayed countless times for different reasons, namely its own filming, the COVID-19 pandemic and the Armie Hammer cannibal controversy.

  • Like its predecessor, ‘Death on the Nile’ is shot on 65mm by DOP Haris Zambarloukos.

  • Its budget is estimated at £120m, and having an all-star cast like this doesn’t come cheap.

Espinof review: ‘Death on the Nile’ is an anachronistic delight: Kenneth Branagh returns to evoke the spirit of classic Hollywood in a whodunit to frame

Flee (2021)

{“videoId”:”x87wye6″,”autoplay”:false,”title”:”Flee – VOSE Official Trailer -“}

  • “Flee” is the first film in history to receive Oscar nominations in the categories of Best Documentary Film, Best Animated Film and Best International Film.

  • If the animation was chosen to tell this true story, it is to preserve the identity of its protagonist, an Afghan refugee named Amin.

  • Although it may seem so, in ‘Flee’ the rotoscoping technique was not used. The interviews were recorded for later use as a reference to create traditional animation.

Review in Espinof: ‘Flee’ is extraordinary: a harrowing journey into the heart of the migrant who made history at the Oscars with his redefinition of animation, documentary and fiction

‘The Black Girl’ (‘The Lost Girl’, 2021)

{“videoId”:”x87y3b0″,”autoplay”:false,”title”:”The Dark Daughter – Spanish Official Trailer -“}

  • “The Dark Daughter” is actress Maggie Gyllenhaal’s debut – yes, Jake’s sister.

  • The director wanted to shoot the film in photochemical, but the budget was skyrocketing and she eventually had to do it with ARRI ALEXA Mini digital cameras.

  • It is based on a novel by Elena Ferrante, who required that, in order to make it into a film adaptation, it be directed by a woman.

  • ‘The Dark Daughter’ is nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress ?Jessie Buckley?, Best Leading Actress ?Olivia Colman? and the best-fit scenario.

‘CODA: The Sounds of Silence’ (‘CODA’, 2021)

  • Actress Emilia Jones spent nine months learning sign language and taking singing lessons to prepare for her role in the film.

  • The film is based on the French film ‘La famille Bélier’, so we could consider it a remake.

  • Apple bought the distribution rights to “CODA” for $25 million after it screened at the Sundance Film Festival.

  • The film was nominated for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor for Troy Kotsur; the first deaf actor to receive a nomination.
