Mexican film 7 Días follows Claudio, who has only seven days to organise a huge concert featuring one of the world’s biggest bands, U2. However, failing to bring the iconic band to Monterrey could cost him his life.

Other films to premiere in the month are Inocente, from Spain.

Soon after the arrest, three of the individuals were released without charges, but Kike and Pakistani citizen weren’t as lucky.

Also from Spain, Amor Tóxico is an unconventional romantic comedy that follows the story of Toni and Irene, two young adults who go out on a date. During their encounter, both of their personalities come afloat, resulting in a deep conversation about sex, attraction and the dysfunctionality of love. And in Reverso, Alex and Marcos, two brothers who haven’t seen each other in years, hide a very dangerous secret. A deadly game that almost killed Alex the last time both brothers were together. However, fear is not an option as they are both seeking revenge.

And finally, in Argentina’s Corazón Muerto, after pulling an easy kidnap, two men are waiting for further instructions inside an abandoned factory located on the outskirts of the city. Hoping to bring home a big ransom, both men are clueless about the big danger that haunts them.
