Time for the Fantasia Film Festival

Fantasia, North America’s largest genre film festival, is upon us again! And we couldn’t be happier.

We are of course excited for the VR selection, but also for some titles like Cannes-buzzed Good Time, starring Robert Pattison, as well as Atomic Blonde, starring Charlize Theron, from John Wick director David Leitch.

That’s to say nothing of Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, starring Cara Delavigne and Rihanna.

Also, the festival will open with North American premieres for Korean director Jung Byung-gil’s The Villainess, starring Kim Ok-vin as a woman who sets out for revenge after her assassin husband is murdered on their wedding day, and Takashi Miike’s Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (his 101st film!!!). Based on Hirohiko Araki’s manga cult series, it tells the tale of a pompadour-headed young man with special powers who has to help his town fight off a serial killer.

Woolf+Lapin is happy to partner with the festival for a third year now.
