Breaking Glass Pictures will release Álex de la Iglesia's (Witching & Bitching, The Last Circus) dark musical comedy MY BIG NIGHT (MI GRAN NOCHE) in theaters and VOD on Friday, April 15, 2016.
In this "dazzling" (Hollywood Reporter) and "zany comedy" (Screen Daily), the backstage preparations for a New Year's Eve TV spectacular become a flashpoint for comic mayhem. MY BIG NIGHT is a frenetic brew of Fellini, Altman and Almodóvar, building steadily toward a finale that's a grand collapse into utter chaos.
MY BIG NIGHT stars Spanish icon Raphael, Mario Casas (Witching & Bitching, "The Boat"), Blanca Suarez (The Skin I Live In, I'm So Excited), Hugo Silva (Witching & Bitching), among other talented Spanish actors. MY BIG NIGHT premiered at Toronto International Film Festival in 2015 and went on to play San Sebastian International Film Festival and Opening Night at Miami International Film Festival. The title of the film is a reference to one of Raphael's most famous songs; the 1967 hit "Mi Gran Noche." MY BIG NIGHT was nominated for four Goya Awards.
This is what it's about: It's only October, but the network's annual black-tie New Year's Eve spectacular has already been in production for a grueling week and a half. A falling crane has taken out an extra and the show's hosts are at each other's throats. A semen thief deceives oversexed pop sensation Adán (Mario Casas) while legendary superstar Alphonso (Raphael) learns he is being stalked by an armed and unstable songwriter. Meanwhile, just outside the studio, the police arrive, as protesters demand the arrest of the shows corrupt producer (Santiago Segura).
MY BIG NIGHT will be playing in the following cities: New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, Seattle, Cleveland, Washington D.C., and more to be announced.
