Fox to bow Estrada pic in Mexico

'Wonderful' pic to open March 17

Twentieth Century Fox Mexico will release helmer Luis Estrada’s dark political comedy “Un mundo maravilloso” (A Wonderful World) in Mexico March 17.

Fox bought Latin American rights at the script stage in early 2005 and holds an option for North American distribution.

Penned by Estrada, film was produced by Mexican production company Altavista Films, Estrada’s Bandidos Films, the recently founded Santo Domingo Films and government film fund Fidecine. Pic stars Damian Alcazar, Cecilia Suarez, Jesus Ochoa and Silverio Palacios.

Estrada describes his fifth feature as “a fairy tale” about the political and socioeconomic realities of Mexico.

Like his previous political parable, “Herod’s Law,” his new pic is being released in the run-up to a presidential election, which should help create buzz.

“Herod’s Law,” which drew more than 2 million viewers in Mexico, was so polemical in its portrait of corruption within Mexico’s essentially single-party system that members of the then-ruling PRI tried to censor it.
