2014: The Year Network TV Became Diversified

05.27.2014 | By |

You can probably count on two hands the number of shows that have had a Latino lead or Latino cast in an English-speaking show that aired on network television until 2007 when “George Lopez” had its final episode. But now in 2014 alone there are about 12 shows that have a Hispanic leads or co-stars! It’s obvious that we’ve come a long way, and so in celebration of this feat, here are the shows airing in 2014 that feature Latino talent: Read More

What Does The Golden Globes Results Mean For The Oscars?

01.14.2014 | By |

This past Sunday, the 71st edition of the Golden Globes Awards was highlighted by several surprises and memorable moments. “American Hustle” was the big winner of the night, “12 Years a Slave” won Best Picture and Alfonso Cuarón made ​​history by becoming the first Latin American to win the award for Best Director for “Gravity“. Ultimately, it is my opinion that the Globes erred in some of the selections which the Oscars will hopefully correct this Thursday, Jan. 16th with its nominations. Read More

Stallone, Schwarzenegger: First trailer for ‘Escape Plan’!

06.29.2013 | By |

Back in the 80’s Escape Plan would have been the movie of the year! Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the same movie going one on one in leading roles!? What!! That’s what I’m talking about. But now both are evidently old, still living off their glory day reputations. Stallone more than Schwarzenegger is in better shape and can still have hand to hand combat battles, but Arnold just looks frail (they were also seen in The Expendables, but that was more a cameo than anything by Arnold). Check out the first trailer above and the new poster, plus pics after the jump.

3 questions with ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’

3 questions with 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'

The main actors of the amazing phenomenon ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’, Daniel Craig (AKA Mr. James Bond) and Rooney Mara gave us an exclusive behind the scenes of what it was like to be involved in this project and how they prepared to become the characters that have been followed by 65 million plus readers of the trilogy world-wide. There’s so much pressure coming from different angles from the readers and from the fans of the Swedish version of the film and it’s understandable since this is a story that has captivated so many, but Craig and Mara have such easy going confident personalities that it’s easy to understand why they were chosen for the roles.

ShowBizCafe.com (SBC): How did you prepare for the roles of Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander and what kind of pressure did you feel?

Daniel Craig (DC): The more you read the more prepared [you are] and the better chances you have during the day. Steve Zaillian (Screenwriter/Executive producer) wrote great words, so it’s all there and all you are trying to do in rehearsal is just tweak and make sense of it and make sure it ties up, make sure you know where you are when you get to it because we didn’t shoot one thing in sequence. We shot the end of the movie first; like you always do…I did what I wanted to do. The most important thing for me, was to make his character as real and believable as possible and obviously is another person I play and I deal with it in a different way, not that I kind of was ever thinking about that but you put the reality in it. You get shot at and you run away screaming, like anybody else would. That’s what the key is; it’s that easy. The [more] you think about what other people think about in the industry the less original you can be; you can’t go into a project thinking: “How would those people like it?” You just gotta get on and be reason minded about it, you can’t please everybody. 

Rooney Mara (RM): David Fincher (Director) told the casting director to let me know before I went down the long road of auditioning that If I were to get the part I would have to: become a smoker, have to go off and live by myself for a year, I would have to be butt naked, I would have to do a rape scene and I would have to ride a motorcycle; which was the least thing I was excited to do [because] it just seemed dangerous. There was a lot of rehearsal, me and David read the script a few times just the two of us together and all of us sat around quite a lot and went through the script and talk the scenes through with Steven Zaillian. We started shooting in Stockholm, just doing the exterior so, it sort of felt like we had three months to really rehearse before we went back to LA and shot sort of the meat of the movie.  To be honest, I didn’t really think much about what other people imagined them to be (meaning the characters), I used what I imagined her to be and I read all three books and I had a really clear picture of who this girl was and luckily David’s idea was pretty similar.   

SBC: Daniel, what can you tell us about your character and the relationship he has with the female lead?

DC: What I love about this character and the relationship he was with Salander…he’s not out to prove that he’s a man, he’s a guy [and] he doesn’t have to go around beating his chest and he’s very happy to fall into this sort of relationship where she’s literally wearing the trousers. [They have] have an age difference and she falls for him but she’s not supposed to. It has a lot to do with honesty and trust. They shouldn’t have a relationship, they shouldn’t really meet in life, they come from different social classes but Salander doesn’t trust anybody and there are very few people in her life that are straight with her and he is. She’s broken the law, she’s hacked into his life and he walks in and says: “ok forget that. I think you are great and I’d like to work with you”. [he] doesn’t walk away.

SBC: Rooney, What do you think about your bi-sexual character and the fashion trend she’s set? Seeing that H&M has a ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ clothing line out in stores now.

RM: Growing up in NY and LA it didn’t seem that crazy to have a bisexual character, she’s incredibly comfortable with her sexuality and I wanted to do it the same. It didn’t faze me, I didn’t really think about it too much. I think the clothes featured in H&M is more Salander, I wouldn’t call her a fashion icon, but you know the H&M look has nothing to do with me personally. [There wasn’t much] I could do with the costume after shots, the hair was stuck to my head and the eyebrows remained bleached and the piercings that I got that were real obviously stayed in. I expected people to treat me much differently. But, it didn’t really happen, the biggest change I noticed is that when you sort of look slightly off in that way, people sort of pay less attention to you and their expectations of you are lowered and I didn’t mind that; I actually enjoyed it.

James Cameron to re-release ‘Titanic’ in 3D

James Cameron to re-release 'Titanic' in 3D

HOLLYWOOD, CA (May 19, 2011) – Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment jointly announced today that James Cameron’s “TITANIC” will be re-released worldwide on April 6, 2012.
 
The release, which marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic setting sail (April 10th), will present the film in 3D for the first time ever.
 
Written, directed and produced by Cameron, “TITANIC” is the second highest grossing movie of all time. It is one of only three films to have received a record 11 Academy AwardsÒ including Best Picture and Best Director; and launched the careers of stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
 
Called “A spectacular demonstration of what modern technology can contribute to dramatic storytelling” by Variety upon its release in 1997, the long in the works 3D conversion is being overseen by Cameron and his Lightstorm producing partner Jon Landau who produced the hit movie.
 
Said Cameron, “There’s a whole generation that’s never seen ‘TITANIC’ as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen.  And this will be ‘TITANIC’ as you’ve never seen it before, digitally re-mastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D.  With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike.”
 
“This new presentation of Paramount’s top-grossing film is particularly special because 2012 is the 100th anniversary of our studio. Paramount has had the pleasure of introducing audiences to some of the all-time classics of cinema during that century of moviemaking and we cannot think of a better way to mark the occasion than with this re-release of ‘TITANIC’,” said Brad Grey, Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures.
 
Commented Fox Filmed Entertainment Chairmen and CEOs, Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman: “Our 30-plus year relationship with Jim Cameron and Lightstorm has been enormously rewarding, from ‘Aliens’ to ‘Avatar’, and the global phenomenon of ‘TITANIC’ remains one of the greatest sources of pride in our history.  We are pleased to allow a new generation of audiences to experience the film in its brilliant digital restoration in 3D.”
