MIPTV Spotlight: SPI International


A-list star Nicolas Cage leads SPI International’s Arcadian, a highlight of the company’s MIPTV offering.

The story follows a father and his twin teenage sons as they fight to survive in a postapocalyptic world that has been overrun by nocturnal creatures. “Arcadian presents a gripping horror-thriller narrative, marking Nicolas Cage’s triumphant return to the forefront of cinema,” notes Hubert Ornass-Kubacki, head of content sales.

Marmalade captivates with its modern twist on the Bonnie and Clyde tale. Infused with psychedelic elements, it offers an explosive blend of love, crime and intrigue set in the heart of the Midwest. The title, starring Camila Morrone and Joe Keery, sees a criminal seek help from a fellow inmate to escape prison and reunite with the woman who stole his heart.

Four Letters of Love features Helena Bonham Carter and Pierce Brosnan. A pair is fated to be together, but the question is whether or not they will ever find out. As ghosts and fate pull the couple together, life threatens to tear them apart in the love story, which is set with breathtaking landscapes and universal themes.
