Berlinale Special highlights two World Premieres

Berlinale 2014 The Berlin International Film Festival is nearly upon us (Feb 6-16), unveiling an 18-strong line-up for its Berlinale Special strand, including nine World Premieres.

Two stand-out World Premiere's specially highlighted this year are A Long Way Down, starring Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul and Pierce Brosnan, and The Two Faces of January, the directorial debut of Drive screenwriter Hossein Amini starring Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac.

Having created the title sequences for both, we couldn't be any happier. And excited to see both films getting a great reception.

A Long Way Down and The Two Faces of January

A Long Way Down, is an adaptation of Nick Hornby’s bestseller about four people who meet on New Year’s Eve and form a surrogate family to help one another weather the difficulties of their lives. It stars Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette and Imogen Poots.

The Two Faces of January, is a con artist thriller from the director of Drive Hossein Amini, which stars Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Inside Llewyn Davis’ Oscar Isaac.

The Two Faces of January

The Two Faces of January Work begins on a new sequence for us this week, as we are really delighted to announce we have been appointed the title sequence for 'The Two Faces of January'.

Based on the classic 1964 novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith, the thriller has been written and directed by screenwriter Hossein Amini in his directorial debut. Starring Viggo Mortensen (Appaloosa, A History of Violence), Kirsten Dunst (Spider-man, Marie Antoinette) and Oscar Issac (Drive, Body of Lies), the film has been produced out of Working Title (Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner) along with Thomas Sternberg (Apocalypse Now and The Talented Mr. Ripley) and Robyn Slovo (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).

The Two Faces of January Actors

'The Two Faces of January' tells the story of an American couple Chester MacFarland (Mortensen) and his wife Colette (Dunst) who while touring Greece in 1962, meet Rydal (Isaac) a tour guide at the Acropolis scamming tourists in the process. Inviting Rydal to dinner one night at their hotel, Chester presses him to help move an unconscious body which eventually leads him to get caught up in ensuing events.

We are very much looking forward to working on this and sharing our progress with you all as the story unfolds.
