Here’s your first look on Lisa Langseth’s “Euphoria” starring Eva and Alicia Vikander. The film also stars Charlotte Rampling, Charles Dance, Adrian Lester and Mark Stanley. This is director Lisa Langseth’s English language film debut. Miss Langseth previously directed Alicia in “Hotel” and “Pure”. The film tells the story of sisters Ines and Emily, who meet up again after many years apart and the profound journey that they undertake together. Filming is currently taking place in Munich with the production set to move in the Bavarian region of Germany. “Euphoria” is expected to be released next year, 2017.
“Eva looks like she can turn into a bird — and I’m sure she has on many occasions,” Burton deadpans of his leading lady, who arrives later for our chat dressed in the distinctly Burton-esque get-up of a black suit paired with a monochrome-striped shirt that recalls a chic Jack Skellington. “Tim calls Miss Peregrine ‘Scary Poppins’,” smiles Green. “Julie Andrews’ Mary Poppins was a bit tough already, but [Miss Peregrine] loves her children. She’s more like a commanding general, because if they’re not on time then something really grave [will] happen.”

Tim Burton’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” will premiere at Fantastic Fest ahead of its Sept. 30 nationwide launch by Fox.
Burton is scheduled to appear at a red-carpet screening of the offbeat drama at festival, which will run from Sept. 22-29 at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar in Austin. The film, based on the Ransom Riggs novel of the same name, centers on a 16-year-old boy who accidentally works for a mysterious woman on a mysterious island where he helps a group of orphaned children, all with strange powers.
Eva Green stars with Asa Butterfield in the lead roles. Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp, Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson also star.
The festival also hosted the world premiere of Burton’s “Frankenweenie” in 2012.
Fantastic Fest, now in its 12th yeas as one of the largest genre fests, will also screen the world premiere of “Phantasm: Ravager”; a special screening of “Phantasm: Remastered” with Don Coscarelli and cast in attendance; and Texas native Sasha Lane hosting Andrea Arnold’s “American Honey,” which also stars Shia LeBeouf.
“We really wanted to challenge the edges of what ‘genre’ means this year,” said Tim League, Fantastic Fest Founder and Alamo Drafthouse CEO. “This world of cinema has evolved so dramatically since our first festival in 2005, and we want to be part of the change by exposing audiences to films, formats and filmmakers that they may never otherwise see. I’m proud of the diversity of experiences we’ll be bringing to Austin this September.”
The festival has hosted the premieres of “Bone Tomahawk,” “Machete Kills,” “Red Dawn,” “There Will Be Blood,” “Red,” “Apocalypto” and “Zombieland” in past years.
The festival will include a spotlight on Indian cinema, including the U.S. premiere of Anurag Kashyap’s 2016 cops and crime story “Psycho Raman” and screenings of S.S. Rajamouli’s “Magadheera” and Sughash Ghai’s “Khalnayak.”
“It is a dream come true to bring the glorious excess and pageantry of Indian cinema to Fantastic Fest,” said Evrim Ersoy, the festival’s head of programming, in a statement. “We are celebrating not only Bollywood but also Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam cinema, highlighting the kaleidoscope of textures and content that is as wide and varied as the subcontinent itself.”
