Check out the trailer and poster that have been released for the satirical comedy Official Competition. The new movie stars Oscar-winner Penélope Cruz (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Nine) and Antonio Banderas (Desperado, Pain and Glory), as well as Irene Escolar, Melina Matthews, Oscar Martínez, Pilar Castro, Manolo Solo, and Karina Kolokolchykova. The movie, which mocks film festivals, premiered last year at both the Venice & Toronto Film Festivals.
In search of significance and social prestige, a billionaire businessman decides to make a film to leave his mark. To do so, he hires the best: a stellar team formed by famous filmmaker Lola Cuevas (Penélope Cruz) and two renowned actors, both enormously talented, but with even bigger egos: the Hollywood actor Félix Rivero (Antonio Banderas) and radical theater thespian Iván Torres (Oscar Martínez). Both legends, but not exactly the best of friends. Through a series of increasingly eccentric challenges set by Lola, Felix and Iván must face not only each other, but also their own legacies.
Official Competition is set to hit European cinemas this Spring. Check out the trailer and poster for the film below.
