International Trailer & Stills From Guillermo Del Toro's ‘Julia’s Eyes’

The Spanish trailer for the Guillermo Del Toro produced $7.2 million dollar project Julia's Eyes has been released by TV news station Antena 3 (below). Guillermo del Toro produces via his Cha Cha Cha label in collaboration with Barcelona's production shingle Rodar y Rodar. The two previously worked on The Orphanage.

Julia returns to Bellevue with her husband to visit her sister Sarah, who is near blind due to a degenerative illness for which she has unsuccessfully undergone surgery. When they arrive, Julia finds that Sarah has taken her own life and none of her mysterious neighbors seem to be all that surprised.

Julia has to confront not only the loss of her sister, but also the loss of all hope halting her own impending blindness, as she suffers from the same illness and would appear to be destined for the same end as her sister.

Directed by Guillem Morales, Julia’s Eyes is shot from the POV of the main protagonist, a woman who is slowly going blind while trying to find clues about her twin sisters untimely death.

Lluís Homar (Broken Embraces) and Belén Rueda (The Orphanage) star in the thriller.

Variety reports that UK distribution shingle Optimum Releasing, has picked up the movie for future distribution in Britain.

Focus Features International has taken rights to France, Spain and Latin America; three territories where Spanish-language genre fare or thrillers have notched up substantial B.O. tallies.

Julia’s Eyes is set to be released in Spain on October 29, 2010.
North American distribution and theatrical release dates are unknown at this time.

Check out the cool production stills and Spanish international trailer after the jump.
