Penélope Cruz, Antonio Banderas, and Oscar Martínez Struggle to Make a Film Together in ‘Official Competition’ Teaser Trailer


The Mediapro Studio has released the teaser trailer for the comedy Official Competition, starring Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas. The trailer centers on filmmaker Lola Cuevas (Cruz), who is hired by a billionaire to make a movie that will be their legacy. To create her masterpiece, Lola will use Hollywood darling Félix Rivero (Banderas) and theater thespian Iván Torres (Oscar Martínez), two actors that apparently hate each other.

Félix and Iván will have to learn to work together while they survive the deranged setpieces imagined by Lola — one of them involving standing still below a colossal rock hanging by a wire. It’s no wonder that Cruz uses the words “pretentious”, “depraved”, and “genius” to describe herself in the new trailer.

Official Competition is directed by Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat, a duo of Argentinian filmmakers who previously worked with Martínez in The Distinguished Citizen, which gave Martínez Best Actor prize at Venice in 2016. The movie is written by the directors and Andrés Duprat.

Theatrical distribution will be handled by Buena Vista International in Spain, with Star Distribution handling releases in Latin America. Protagonist Pictures is handling international sales, but no U.S. release date has been announced yet. Check the Official Competition trailer below:

Here’s the official synopsis for Official Competition:

In search of significance and social prestige, a billionaire businessman decides to make a film to leave his mark. To do so, he hires the best: a stellar team formed by famous filmmaker Lola Cuevas and two renowned actors, both enormously talented, but with even bigger egos: the Hollywood actor Félix Rivero and radical theater thespian Iván Torres. Both legends, but not exactly the best of friends. Through a series of increasingly eccentric challenges set by Lola, Felix and Iván must face not only each other, but also their own legacies.
