New Looks At Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins & Ben Foster In Fernando Meirelles’ '360'

It has been a few years since we last heard from "City Of God" director Fernando Meirelles. After his excellent 2005 thriller "The Constant Gardner," the director brought an adaptation of Jose Saramago's "Blindness" to the big screen that failed to quite capture the terror of the novel, but his latest should find him back on firm footing. Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins, Ben Foster, Jarnel Debouze, Karl Markovic, Maria Flor and Juliano Cazarr have come together for the erotic/dramatic thriller "360" and with the film set to premiere is few short weeks, a batch of new photos have arrived.

It has been a few years since we last heard from "City Of God" director Fernando Meirelles. After his excellent 2005 thriller "The Constant Gardner," the director brought an adaptation of Jose Saramago's "Blindness" to the big screen that failed to quite capture the terror of the novel, but his latest should find him back on firm footing. Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins, Ben Foster, Jarnel Debouze, Karl Markovic, Maria Flor and Juliano Cazarr have come together for the erotic/dramatic thriller "360" and with the film set to premiere is few short weeks, a batch of new photos have arrived.

Penned by Peter Morgan, the film is a retelling of the classic Arthur Schnitzler play “Reigen.” The play, perhaps the best known work by Schnitzler (who also wrote the short story that served as the basis for Stanley Kubrick‘s “Eyes Wide Shut”) has been adapted a number of times, from Max Ophuls’ 1950 film “La Ronde” to David Hare‘s 1998 play “The Blue Room,” which starred Nicole Kidman and Iain Glen. It has a simple and rather brilliant conceit; it’s made up of several short scenes between couples, who are shown before or after a sexual liaison. After each scene, one character from the pairing is then shown with another partner, who is then shown with another partner, and so on, until the promiscuity comes full circle. Certainly it's some very charged material and these new pics give us a look at the ensemble collected to tell the tale.

"360" will make its world premiere at TIFF next month, but the film is currently without a distributor so you'll likely be waiting a while yet to see this in your local theater. Official logline below. [TIFF]

Director Fernando Meirelles (City of God) reunites with his Constant Gardener star Rachel Weisz, who stars opposite Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins, and Ben Foster in this uncompromising dramatic thriller fuelled by the notion of how sexual relationships can transgress social boundaries.
