Sony Pictures and House RCA are presenting “T2 Trainspotting”, “Call Me by Your Name” and “Brigsby Bear”.
“We plan to show three or four indie movies a year from Sony Pictures Classic and Tristar Pictures,” says Rachot Dhiraputra, managing director of Sony Pictures Entertainment (Thailand).
Dujdao Promobol, head of marketing at Studio Entertainment, says the objective is to give people “more chances to see movies, especially indie movies that have less chance of being shown in Thailand – and to see them in a cinema rather than on DVD or other home formats”.
“T2 Trainspotting” is first on the menu, screening on Thursday (June 1).
Danny Boyle is again in the director’s chair for the sequel to the 1996 comedydrama based on characters created by Irvine Welsh in his novels “Trainspotting” and “Porno”. “T2” also features the original cast – Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle and Kelly Macdonald.
“Call Me by Your Name” is a coming-of-age drama directed by Luca Guadagnino and co-written by James Ivory, based on Andre Aciman’s novel of the same name. It stars Timothe Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg and Armie Hammer.
Set in northern Italy in the summer of 1983, it’s about an American-Italian who becomes enamoured with an American student living with his family.
“Brigsby Bear” is an American comedy-drama directed by Dave McCary and starring Kyle Mooney, Claire Danes, Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear and Andy Samberg.
Kidnapped as a baby, James Pope knows nothing about the outside world except what he learns from Brigsby Bear, a character on a children’s show fabricated by his abductor-parents. Once rescued, he learns there is no such show, and sets out to make a Brigsby Bear movie to show the world what he learned.
