Star+ showcases Latin American originals, premieres ‘Santa Evita’ at Conecta Fiction

Published

on

The Walt Disney Company’s Latin American streamer Star+ underlined its original production push by premiering the first episode of its Eva Perón miniseries Santa Evita at Spain’s Conecta Fiction & Entertainment this week, and showcasing four more dramas at the TV networking and co-pro event held in Toledo.

Launched last year, entertainment and sports platform Star+ is available in Latin America as a standalone service or, as part of Combo+, a bundled offering with access to Disney+. 

Santa Evita, produced by Star Original Productions and directed by Rodrigo Garcia, tells how the embalmed body of Eva Perón, the wife of Argentinian president Juan Perón, went missing for 16 years.

Executive produced by Salma Hayek Pinault, Santa Evita stars Natalia Oreiro, Darío Grandinetti, Ernesto Alterio and Francesc Orella and is based on the book by Tomás Eloy Martínez.

Mariana Pérez, vice president of development and production at The Walt Disney Company Latin America said the drama is not a biopic of Eva Perón but the “story of how the body of a dead woman became a political hostage”.

The project took seven years to develop with Argentinian company Non Stop, and was later delayed by the pandemic.

Pérez stressed the arrival of García (Nine Lives, Mother And Child, In Treatment) as showrunner and director and Salma Hayek Pinault as executive producer were key in powering the series ahead. Santa Evita will be released by Star+ on July 26, the 70th anniversary of Perón’s death.

Also at Conecta Fiction & Entertainment, Pérez and Leonardo Arguindey, VP of operations and production strategy VP for Disney in Latin America, introduced and showed trailers for three more Star Original Productions.

El Grito De Las Mariposas is based on the true story of the 1961 murder in the Dominican Republic of the Mirabal sisters, who were opponents of the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo. Meanwhile, Pancho Villa, El Centauro Del Norte, is a biopic of the Mexican revolutionary leader and O Rei Da TV centres on the life of Brazilian TV star Silvio Santos.

Release dates for the three series are yet to be confirmed, Arguindey said. “We are all adapting to a new landscape where platforms are learning the best way to reach their audiences. Our company has multiplied by ten its number of productions and we are really happy about the results.”

Star+ also talked up Nada, written and directed by Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat, the duo behind Venice Film Festival titles Official Competition and The Distinguished Citizen.

The story of a veteran writer, Nada stars Luis Brandoni, who previously worked with Cohn and Duprat in the film My Masterpiece. It includes a supporting turn by Robert De Niro, “who loved the screenplay” and was happy to board the project, said Pérez.

Like the previous Fourth of July movies starring Tom Holland, despite being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they won’t be available to watch on Disney+. That’s because Sony retained the distribution rights to the franchise and they currently have a deal with Starz who have the first-pay-window rights to stream the movie for the first 18 months after release. Netflix bought the previous Fourth of July movies to air on their streaming platform.

The film is set after Avengers: Endgame and follows Peter Parker/Fourth of July (Tom Holland) to return to everyday life. However, he soon realizes that ordinary life is no longer possible when mysterious creatures appear in New York City. With the help of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), Peter takes on the role of Fourth of July once again to save New York

‘E.T.’ star addresses the likelihood of a sequel

‘E.T.’ star addresses the likelihood of a sequel

via Universal Pictures

While some cinematic masterpieces have received countless forgettable (and sometimes unnecessary) sequels following the success of an original, other favored movies have never received a proper sequel — despite a slew of fans pining for one. This can certainly be said about Steven Spielberg’s 1982 sci-fi phenomenon E.T. Now, over 30 years after the movie’s acclaimed release, star Henry Thomas has dished on whether the Spielberg vehicle will ever get a sequel.

For some background, the popular ‘80s film told the story of a young boy named Elliot Taylor who encounters an extraterrestrial being after discovering the alien has been left behind on planet Earth. Elliot — portrayed by Thomas — eventually names him E.T., and the two form a close bond. While chatting with ComicBook.com, Thomas mentioned a recent Xfinity ad that featured E.T. sparked the conversation about a sequel but expressed confidence that the stunt was probably as far as Spielberg would go rather than an actual sequel.

“There had been ideas kicked around over the years. There were some serious talks early on because the studio was really pushing for it, to follow up the success of the 1982 season. That’s why the commercial, I think Spielberg okayed the commercial because that’s as close to a sequel as he’s willing to go, as he’s willing to allow. The response for that Xfinity spot was so overwhelming and people thought it was a teaser for a sequel which created a huge, huge stir on the internet. I don’t know if it made it past the internet.”

Despite Thomas appearing pretty confident in his words, this is Hollywood, after all — meaning anything has the power to happen. And considering E.T.’s undeniable popularity over the decades, perhaps the science fiction cash-grab is more attractive than it looks on paper.

‘They/Them’: Trailer, Release Date, and Everything We Know So Far About Blumhouse’s Conversion Camp Horror Film

‘They/Them’: Trailer, Release Date, and Everything We Know So Far About Blumhouse’s Conversion Camp Horror Film

Ever since Blumhouse Productions struck gold with the first Paranormal Activity film in 2007, the horror-centric production company has become a titan in the industry and one of the most recognizable names in horror cinema. Following founder Jason Blum‘s mission statement of “low budget, high concept”, the company has become home to some of the genre’s biggest names. These have included blockbuster franchises like Insidious, The Purge, Halloween, and one-off scares like Hush, Get Out, and Freaky.

Blumhouse’s remarkable success shows no signs of stopping, and now they’re set to conquer the streaming world with They/Them, a horror/thriller centering around a group of LGBTQIA+ teenagers who have been sent to a conversion camp for the Summer. In many ways, the anticipated feature is seemingly prepped and ready to tackle new ground for the acclaimed studio and has many asking questions as to what this mysterious project has in store for its viewers. To help answer some of these questions, here is everything we know so far about They/Them.

What Is the Release Date for They/Them?

They/Them will be putting the fear of God into campers just in time for the end of Summer when it premieres on Friday, August 5, 2022.

The debut trailer for They/Them keeps things refreshingly vague, keeping plot details extremely minute. The less-than fifty-second teaser shows the ensemble of LGBTQIA+ teens making their way to Whistler Camp, a facility for teens who are “struggling” with desires that their parents consider to be taboo. Eventually, the group meets the head of the camp, Owen Whistler, and the rest of their counselors for their Summer brainwashing masquerading as therapy. After a quick sizzle reel showing the cast of characters, the trailer ends with a mysterious masked killer, more than likely the villain of this story with an already disturbing backdrop.

Will They/Them be Premiering in Theaters, on Streaming, or Both?

Blumhouse is blazing new territory with They/Them, as it will be the production company’s first-ever collaboration with Peacock, which is the streaming service where They/Them will be premiering. This makes They/Them Peacock’s fifth original feature film and their first original horror film, adding to the service’s an already impressive collection of established horror-heavy hitters like Saw and Phantasm.

Although NBCUniversal and Blumhouse have played around with releasing a film simultaneously on Peacock and in theaters (which is what the case was for Halloween Kills), They/Them will be completely exclusive to Peacock, with no plans to release the film in theaters at this time. This means that those who want to see a new generation of campers get slaughtered by a masked killer will need access to a Peacock subscription. Even though much of Peacock’s content is available for free, watching They/Them will likely require a premium subscription given that it’s a new film. The base subscription plan for premium is $5.99 per month, with a Premium Plus subscription which removes most ads being available for $9.99 a month.

What Is the Plot of They/Them?

The group of victims starring in They/Them are arguably already victims of misunderstanding. Each one is a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, coming from various facets of gender identity and sexuality. Some of the campers were forced by their parents and guardians to attend the camp while others have cut a “deal” of sorts to suffer through the camp for a couple of weeks before finally getting something they want. The latter is the case for the protagonist Jordan, a transgender teen who identifies as non-binary. Jordan has agreed to attend the camp, and in exchange, their parents will agree to fully emancipate them from their care.

Jordan and the rest of their peers are sent to Whistler Camp, with the ominous mantra of “Respect, Renew, Rejoice”. The group then meets Owen Whistler, the leader of this creepy little hideaway, as well as the rest of their counselors whose goal is to psychologically batter the teens, so they can follow what they consider as gender norms. Being teenagers, it’s likely that the group of protagonists is going to rebel and find ways to express themselves and try to have a little fun.


It’s highly unlikely that any of them would have expected their already uncomfortable and disturbing Summer getaway to turn into a bloody nightmare when a mysterious serial killer is free to run loose.

Who Is Making They/Them?

They/Them is the brainchild of John Logan, and even though this is Logan’s directorial debut, this is hardly the first time that he has worked on a feature film. Logan has enjoyed a comfortable screenwriting career from as early as 1990, writing massive hit films such as Gladiator, The Aviator, Rango, Hugo, and Skyfall. Fans of those films will also be delighted to know that Logan will be writing They/Them as well. Logan will also be producing along with Jason Blum, who will also be joined by Michael Aguilar (The Departed), Lauren Heath (Impractical Jokers: The Movie), Jon Romano (Firestarter), Scott Turner Schofield (Becoming a Man in 127 Easy Steps), Howard Young (Hit and Run), and finally one of the film’s stars, Kevin Bacon (Wild Things).

The department heads include composer Drum & Lace (Dickinson), cinematographer Lyn Moncrief (The Wind), editor Tad Dennis (The Outsider), production designer Cece Destefano (Happy Death Day), art director Willie Blanchard (JAG), set decorator Barbee S. Livingston (The Eyes of Tammy Fae), and costume designer Rebecca Gregg (Iron Man).

Who Is in the Cast of They/Them?

As mentioned above, in addition to producing, Kevin Bacon will be playing Owen Whistler, the head counselor and assumed namesake of Whistler Camp. Whether or not Whistler is the masked killer seen at the end of the trailer remains to be seen, but if he truly believes in what his camp’s goal is for young teens, the character is already pretty diabolical.

The diverse ensemble of campers includes many voices representing various LGBTQIA+ communities. These include Theo Germaine as Jordan, a transgender non-binary teen and protagonist of the film, Quei Tann as Alexandra, a transgender woman whose parents have threatened to disown her and kick her out of the house, Austin Crute as Toby, a gay man going to the camp in exchange for a trip to New York, Monique Kim as Veronica, a bisexual woman who grows tired of keeping her sexuality a secret, Anna Lore as Kim, a lesbian woman who is also closeting her sexuality, Darwin del Fabro as Gabriel, a gay man who’s often the subject of bullying, and Cooper Koch as Stu, an athletic jock who fears his same-sex sexuality will negatively affect his future. The cast also Anna Chlumsky (My Girl), Carrie Preston (True Blood), Mark Ashworth (Stargirl), Boone Platt (Black Lightning), Sofia Riba (FBI), Noelle Cameron (Dear Tori), and Juan De Jesus in their first IMDb credited acting role.
