Rutger Oelsen Hauer (Dutch: [ˈrʏtxər ˈulsə(n) ˈɦʌuər]; 23 January 1944 – 19 July 2019) was a Dutch actor. In 1999, he was named by the Dutch public as the Best Dutch Actor of the Century.

"Tears in rain" (also known as the "C-Beams Speech") is a 42-word monologue delivered by character Roy Batty (portrayed by Rutger Hauer ) in the 1982 Ridley Scott-directed film Blade Runner.

Elkin says, “Break is essentially a rags-to-riches, urban drama about a London kid trying to make a break from all the negative elements of his life to do something positive. I hope people feel inspired to follow their dreams and make better choices.”

Hauer’s other final films include Tonight at Noon, which is completed, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Connie Nielsen and Lauren Ambrose, and Lee Tamahori’s Emperor which is in post.

Break joins a slate of other films that Conduit is distributing in North America during the pandemic including the psychological thriller Dark Corners a about an ex-soccer player solving the murder of his wife; the action-fantasy Viking epic Afterwalker, and the existential drama Obsidian Dolls about a young Jewish man who asks a Rabbi’s blessing for his own suicide.

Alan Arkin and Rutger Hauer star in this award winning movie about the successful mass escape of 300 prisoners from the Sobibor Nazi death camp. The film begins with a scene called "perhaps one of cinema' s most innovative opening sequences" by a BBC reviewer.

Why 'Fireball' Producer Sandbox Films Doesn't Need Talking Heads to Make Smart Science Documentaries .
In Werner Herzog and Clive Oppenheimer's "Fireball: Visitors From Darker Worlds," the directors show you gloriously colorful images of meteorites containing atomic particles of five-fold symmetry, a geometric shape thought to be impossible in nature. It's a beautiful sight, but the German auteur concedes that he "won't torture you" with more testimony from a bespectacled professor about how the math works. That line captures the ethos for the new production company Sandbox Films, which produced "Fireball" and launched last month at TIFF with a lineup of other science-based documentary films all in development.
