Next week, American audiences will get to choose between “Zoolander 2” and “Deadpool” at the box office. If you’re a certain kind of movie lover, that’s not much of a choice at all. But overseas, Luca Guadagnino‘s “A Bigger Splash” is opening, and even from it’s conception, the picture — which stars Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Dakota Johnson, is coming from a movie lover’s heart.
“[Everyone] who knows me knows that I am a very big cinephile,” the director told The Telegraph, and when it came to casting the “Fifty Shades Of Grey” star he “felt the DNA: of course, she’s the granddaughter of Tippi Hedren and the daughter of Melanie Griffiths. How could I resist that?”
A loose remake of “La Piscine,” the film tracks a rock star and filmmaker whose vacation doesn’t quite go as smoothly as planned.
“A Bigger Splash” opens in the U.K. on February 12th and stateside on May 13th.
