Thanks to Chrissie for the find.

So good to see two Viggo movies mentioned in this article at Variety:

Quote:
Pundits are focusing on Venice-Telluride-Toronto offerings, but there were a lot of goodies before those events...

​Crimes of the Future (NEON)

Why has David Cronenberg never been nominated for an Oscar? It’s probably because he often creates genre films that make some people uncomfortable. The audacious and witty “Crimes” centers on humans trying to take control over their bodies. There are some squishy moments but as Viggo Mortensen's character says, “Art triumphs once again.”

. . . . . .

Thirteen Lives (MGM)


You might think you know all about the rescue of the young Thai soccer team and their coach from a flooded cave. But you don’t. Director Ron Howard and his team offer what Hollywood does best: a big-scale look at an event that always keeps focus on the individuals. All contributions are first-rate. And like the other films here, it’s definitely worth watching.

Lyon : Viggo Mortensen et Albert Dupontel parmi les invités d’honneur du Festival Lumière 2020

A ceux qui pensaient que l'édition 2020 du Festival Lumière n'allait pas pouvoir accueillir des stars, les organisateurs envoient un premier message fort.

Ce mercredi, à la veille de dévoiler la programmation de l'évènement, on apprend l'identité des invités d'honneur du festival de cinéma.

Le plus connu et probablement attendu sera Viggo Mortensen. Interprète légendaire d'Aragorn dans la trilogie du Seigneur des Anneaux, l'acteur et désormais réalisateur francophone sera donc à Lyon mi-octobre.

Deux autres cinéastes étrangers font partie de cette liste d'invités : la réalisatrice italienne Alice Rohrwacher, habituée de Cannes mais beaucoup moins du grand public, ainsi que le danois Thomas Vinterberg (La Chasse) dont le prochain film "Drunk" avec Mads Mikkelsen devait être sélectionné à Cannes au printemps dernier.

Enfin, côté Français, le Festival Lumière attendra de pied ferme Albert Dupontel, qui pourra présenter son nouveau long-métrage "Adieu les cons" qui sortira en salles le 21 octobre. Mais aussi l'actrice Sabine Azéma.
