Wim Wenders’ 3D Drama ‘Every Thing Will Be Fine’ & New Films By Pablo Larraín & Oliver Hirschbiegel Complete Berlin Line-Up

Wim Wenders' 3D Drama 'Every Thing Will Be Fine' & New Films By Pablo Larraín & Oliver Hirschbiegel Complete Berlin Line-Up

After scoring the world premiere of Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” 2015’s most Oscar-nominated film bar “Birdman,” The Berlin Film Festival suddenly seems to have more clout and sway than usual. The festival already has a tremendous line-up that includes anticipated new films by Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog, Anton Corbijn, Jafar Panahi and more.

Berlin announced the completion of their line-up today and there’s definitely a few more cherries to top it all off. As expected (he’s being feted by the festival), Wim Wenders 3D drama, “Every Thing Will Be Fine,” starring James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Rachel McAdams, will be part of the final line-up, but will play out of competition. Other key additions include two new unexpected films by Chilean auteurs, a documentary by Patricio Guzman titled “The Pearl Button” and a new surprise drama from Pablo Larraín (director of “No” starring Gael Garcia Bernal). German filmmaker Oliver Hirschbiegel (“Downfall”) also has a film out of competition. All and all, it’s a pretty impressive roster. Here’s the new additions:
