Mystery of Miss Bala

Update: Variety‘s Gregg Goldstein covertly reported on 8.23 (i.e., behind Variety‘s paywall) that Fox Int’l is working with David Dinerstein‘s D2 Films to give Gerardo Naranjo‘s Miss Bala a limited domestic release starting on 10.14, along with another Fox International production, The Yellow Sea. Indiewire also ran a story.

“News of both pics comes three months after Fox announced its Fox World Cinema label, designed to capitalize on the North American ancillary value of FIP films” Goldstein wrote.

Earlier: Acclaimed during last May’s Cannes Film Festival and now scheduled to play at the Toronto Film Festival in less than two weeks, Gerardo Naranjo‘s Miss Bala will, according to the IMSDB, be released by 20th Century Fox on 10.14. Yup, that’s what I said. Obvious question: why is “big Fox” releasing a Mexican-produced, Spanish-language action thriller with no big stars? Isn’t this kind of film outside their comfort zone?

It’s possible, I suppose, that 20th Century Fox isn’t handling U.S. distribution for Miss Bala, as the IMDB says. I tried for a yea-nay from a Fox rep earlier today, but she didn’t reply. Perhaps tomorrow (i.e., Tuesday).

    Not only is it outside their comfort zone, but I’ve asked them twice about this flick because a bilingual website I write for is very interested in it, and both times the folks at Fox have denied any knowledge of the film.

    Probably because they don’t attract a certain demo which might be pissed off at them for their sister company FOX News attacking their legal status.

    People aren’t going to watch foreign language films unless you FORCE FEED them. Very awesome if Fox puts this in 2000 theaters.

  • George Prager

    Warner Brothers put GOTHIKA on 2382 Screens.

  • Forgive me if I’m completely off-base here, but doesn’t the US contain a sizeable market for whom Spanish is not a foreign language?

    The film is a knockout. Good on Fox.

    At first, I was going to say Big Fox is releasing this for the same reasons FSL released the Bollywood movie My Name is Khan in February 2010, or why Lionsgate has committed to releasing several Hispanic-centric movies through their sub-division Pantaleon… to see if there is a sustainable market for these films. But then, I’ve gone through every Fox database I have legal and legitimate access to, and I don’t see this on their domestic distribution list, for 2011 or any other year. Nor do I see it being released at any of the usual suspect theatres in Los Angeles or New York City for this type of film.

    I suspect this is another unsubstantiated IMDb blind user submission added without full vetting.

    There’s no distributor listed in its NYFF capsule. It’s screening there 10/1-2.
