‘Shadow In the Cloud’ flies into theaters, ‘Sing Me A Song’ debuts – Deadline

The specialized box office and streaming space is ringing in 2021 with a slew of new titles starting with Shadow in the cloud with Chloë Grace Moretz, which opens in select theaters and releases on VOD and digital from January 1, 2021.

Directed by Roseanne Liang who co-wrote the screenplay with Max Landis, Shadow in the cloud is a photo of war, horror and the empowerment of women. Set in World War II, the film follows Captain Maude Garrett (Moretz) who joins an all-male crew of a B-17 bomber with a top-secret package. Caught off guard by the presence of a woman on a military flight, the crew tests Maude’s every move. Just as her quick wit seduces them, strange happenings and holes in her backstory incite paranoia around her true mission. On top of all of that, there is something lurking in the shadows – something sinister is tearing the heart of the plane apart. Trapped between an impending air ambush and an evil lurking within, Maude must push her limits to save the hapless crew and protect her mysterious cargo.

The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year before being screened at AFI Fest. The Vertical Entertainment photo is the first film to enter the box office fray in 2021. In Pete Hammond’s review, he said: “Shadow in the cloud Kicks off Day 1 in style thanks to real finder director Roseanne Liang, who clearly knows how to deliver a wild and unpredictable ride through the skies that, at the very least, will put a well-deserved smile on your face as we step outside of a terrible year in the hope of a better dawn.

Shadow in the cloud Also stars Nick Robinson, Beulah Koale, Taylor John Smith, Callan Mulvey, Benedict Wall, Joe Witkowski and Byron Coll. Watch the trailer below.

Documentary by Thomas Balmès Sing me a song tells an internet love story that is not your typical romance. Participant Media is set to release the feature document on New Year’s Day through virtual theaters and on VOD platforms.

The docu debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2019 and follows teenager Peyangki (eight years after being featured in Balmes’ Happiness) as he experiences the brave new world of technology and smartphones that takes him away from the old practices of monastic life. The new integration of this new discovery of communication leads to an unlikely romance.

Peyangki lives in a rural monastery – but equipped with Wi-Fi – in Bhutan. He lives his daily life of rituals and prayers, but is absorbed by the culture of smartphones, television and dating apps. While none of this is quite in line with the monks’ traditional vows, Peyangki continues to participate in the tech fare.

He developed a passion for love songs which led to a relationship via an application, WeChat, with a young singer (Ugyen) from the city of Thimphu. Distracted and disinterested in studying, and often scolded by his teachers and mother, he sells medicinal mushrooms to earn enough money to leave the monastery and travel to Ugyen. Balmes Sing me a song portrays a young man’s introduction to the world, offers us revealing insight into the effects of technology, and challenges us to re-evaluate our perceptions of self-esteem and beliefs in an age of connectivity without previous.

Watch the trailer below.
