HeyUGuys brings you the latest in World Cinema film trailers in association with Film Dates UK.

Each week we’ll be showcasing some of most anticipated foreign releases as well as highlighting a few hidden gems which may have fallen off your radar. It’s no surprise that Hollywood has turned to World Cinema for inspiration in recent years with the number of remakes getting more and more popular.

Whilst it remains to be seen how many of these remakes go on to succeed or stay true to their original story counterparts, we decided it was high-time we turned the spotlight onto the next wave of foreign films to grace our screens.

This week we have 5 new trailers for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

Avan Ivan

UK Cinema Release Date: Friday17th June 2011

Synopsis: ‘Avan’ is played by Vishal who portrays the role of Walter Vanangamudy, while ‘Ivan’ is Arya who portrays the role of Kumbudra Saami. Having tonsured their heads for the roles (and following the director’s request to keep their startling appearance secret from the public), the two stars are playing a pair of petty thieves. Vishal is a squint-eyed hero, using con-tricks to fund local dramas, while Arya portrays his stepbrother. The director says, “Avan Ivan is a film that will make you roar with laughter for the most part. Occasionally, you may cry. But finally you will be shocked.” With music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja, the film’s highlights include a 10-minute scene where Vishal and Arya appear together with Suriya, who makes a memorable cameo appearance!

UK Cinema Release Date: Friday 17th June 2011

Synopsis: In a French bourgeois province in 1977, Suzanne is the submissive wife of rich industrialist Robert Pujol, who runs his umbrella factory with an iron hand and turns out to be just as nasty and tyrannical with his workers as he is with his mistress, children and trophy wife. After the workers go on strike and hold Robert captive, Suzanne ends up managing the factory, instead of her husband, who is disowned by the staff. Distressed and in poor health, Robert goes away for a while and, to the surprise of most, Suzanne proves to be an assertive woman of action. With the help of the communist deputy, her former lover Maurice Babin, she puts an end to the strike, gets the factory running again and improves the employees working conditions. But when Robert returns from his trip in good health, the situation gets complicated. From Pierre Barillet and Jean-Pierre Grédys eponymous play.

The Round Up (La Rafle)

UK Cinema Release Date: Friday 17th June 2011

Synopsis: 1942. Joseph is eleven. And this June morning, he must go to school, a yellow star sown on his chest. He receives the support of a goods dealer. The mockery of a baker. Between kindness and contempt, Jo, his Jewish friends, their families, learn of life in an occupied Paris, on the Butte Montmartre, where they’ve taken shelter. At least that’s what they think, until that morning on July 16th 1942, when their fragile happiness is toppled over. From the Vélodrome D’Hiver, where 13 000 Jews are crammed, to the camp of Beaune-La-Rolande, from Vichy to the terrace of the Berghof, La Rafle follows the real destinies of the victims and the executioners. Of those who orchestrated it all. Of those who trusted them. Of those who fled. Of those who opposed them. Every character in this film has existed. Every event, even the most extreme, transpired on that summer of 1942.
