A bizarre Penelope Cruz shines in the teaser trailer for ‘Official Competition’

They say that Penelope Cruz will be twice at the Venice Film Festival this year. On the one hand, it has already been confirmed that he will present ‘Parallel Mothers’, the new by Pedro Almodóvar who stars alongside Aitana Sánchez-Gijón and Milena Smit. On the other, it is said that another of his films, ‘Official Competition’, will also be premiered at the Italian competition.

We bring you the first teaser trailer, a fun video that promises an extravagant comedy in which, from what we see in the preview, the Alcobendas actress shines like a bizarre film director. Already in the first photos, the crazy wig that Cruz wears in the film caught our attention, but it seems that his interpretation is not going to be left behind.

Antonio Banderas and the Argentine Oscar Martínez (‘Wild Tales’) lead the cast of this film with Cruz by Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat. The Argentine creative tandem behind titles such as ‘The man next door’ direct a script that they have written together with Andrés Duprat.

José Luis Gómez, Nagore Aranburu, Irene Escolar, Manolo Solo and Pilar Castro complete the cast of this Spanish production by The Mediapro Studio.


In search of significance and social prestige, a billionaire businessman decides to make a film that leaves his mark. To do this, he hires the best: a stellar team made up of the famous filmmaker Lola Cuevas (Penélope Cruz) and two renowned actors, owners of enormous talent, but with an even bigger ego: the Hollywood actor Félix Rivero (Antonio Banderas ) and radical theater actor Iván Torres (Oscar Martínez). They are both legends, but not exactly the best of friends. Through a series of increasingly eccentric trials set by Lola, Felix and Iván must face not only each other, but also their own legacies.
