"MY BIG NIGHT" -- Alex De La Iglesia's Black Comedy Hits Theaters and VOD in April


Breaking Glass Pictures will release Álex de la Iglesia’s  (Witching & Bitching, The Last Circus) ensemble black comedy MY BIG NIGHT (MI GRAN NOCHE in theaters and VOD April 15, 2016. In this “dazzling” (Hollywood Reporter) and “zany comedy” (Screen Daily), the backstage preparations for a New Year's Eve TV spectacular become a flashpoint for comic mayhem.

MY BIG NIGHT stars Spanish superstar Raphael, Mario Casas (Witching & Bitching, “The Boat”), Blanca Suarez (The Skin I Live In, I'm So Excited) and Hugo Silva (Witching & Bitching). MY BIG NIGHT premiered at Toronto International Film Festival in 2015 and went on to play San Sebastian International Film Festival and Opening Night at Miami International Film Festival.

Official Synopsis:

It's only October, but the network's annual black-tie New Year's Eve spectacular has already been in production for a grueling week and a half, and setbacks continue to accumulate. A falling crane has just taken out an extra, and the show's hosts are at each other's throats. Oversexed pop sensation Adán (Mario Casas) discovers he's been duped by a semen thief, while legendary divo Alphonso (real-life singer Raphael) is stalked by an armed and unstable would-be songwriter (Jaime Ordóñez) who's disgruntled after years of rejection.
Meanwhile, just outside the studio, riot police move in as demonstrators demand the arrest of the shows corrupt producer (Santiago Segura). My Big Night is a frenetic brew of Fellini, Altman and Almodóvar, building steadily toward a finale that's a grand collapse into utter chaos.

"Releasing MY BIG NIGHT and adding another modern auteur to the Breaking Glass family is a dream come true. In a world of dark independent features, Alex's films have always done a masterful job of bringing satire and comedy to audiences - we hope this one will keep audiences smiling," says Rich Wolff, CEO Breaking Glass Pictures.
