Corpse Bride, A History of Violence and Flightplan will be screened

Three of this season's most eagerly awaited movies, CORPSE BRIDE (photo) by Tim Burton, A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE by David Cronenberg and FLIGHTPLAN, directed by Robert Schwentke and starring Jodie Foster, will be screened in SITGES 05. These movies will be three of the Festival's out-of-competition big highlight events.
Added to the Official Fantàstic Selection's in-competition films are the Spanish OCULTO, directed by Antonio Hernández, plus SYMPATHY FOR LADY VENGEANCE, from the winner of Sitges 04 with his movie Old Boy, Park Chan-Wook.

Corpse Bride, a stop-motion animated film that takes place in a 19th century European village, continues the fun, obscure, romantic tradition of Tim Burton's classic movies Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas, with Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and Emily Watson lending their voices to animated characters designed by the Barcelona-based company Grangel Estudio.
A History of Violence, by David Cronenberg, stars Viggo Mortensen, Maria Bello, William Hurt and Ed Harris and is the movie version of the comic written by John Wagner and illustrated by Vince Locke.
Jodie Foster is back portraying a mother living a nightmare (like in her previous starring role in Panic Room) in Flightplan, when her daughter, while flying home with her from Berlin to New York, vanishes in mid-flight.

In Oculto, from Spanish filmmaker Antonio Hernández (En la ciudad sin límites ' The City of no Limits), Laia Marull and Leonardo Sbaraglia along with Angie Cepeda take part in a mysterious, dream-world-related triangle .
Sitges 05 will be completing the vengeance trilogy from Korean filmmaker Park Chan-Wook (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Old Boy) with Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, as all three films will have visited the Festival.
