03.19.2013 | By |

The Disney Princess is no more as a new rebellious side takes over. With a special debut of the indie film “Spring Breakers” 20-year-old Selena Gomez shows that she is ready to take on more mature roles in Hollywood.

This weekend the film, directed by Harmony Korine (Kids, Mister Lonely), had a special three-theater-only debut which left everyone with their jaws on the floor – not only because of the wild college girls in tiny bikinis but because of the positive response to the film. Read More

First pic, poster of America Ferrera in ‘It’s a Disaster’

First pic, poster of America Ferrera in 'It's a Disaster'

America Ferrera is such a prolific young artist, who’s an Emmy, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award, ALMA and Imagen Award winner among others. She’s had her share of comedy with her hit show on ABC ‘Ugly Betty’. We also have seen her strong talents in the dramedy ‘Real Women Have Curves’. We will see her September 28 in ‘End of Watch’ with Jake Gyllenhaal. Finally, she will star opposite Michael Peña and Rosario Dawson in Diego Luna’s ‘Chavez’ as Helen Chavez, the wife of civil rights activist Cesar Chavez’. Given her resume, it’s a wonder what we can expect from her character in Todd Berger’s comedy ‘It’s a Disaster’ set to come out later on this year; which explores the idea on how four couples would deal with the unexpected end of the world.

Four girlfriends meet for Sunday brunch, brining their significant others and shortly realize this might be their last few hours on Earth. Tracy Scott (Julia Stiles) brings her boyfriend Glenn (David Cross) to meet her girlfriends for the first time: Hedy (America Ferrera), Emma (Erinn Hayes) and Lexi (Rachel Boston). Tracy nervously awaits her friends’ approval, not knowing that there are bigger things happening to worry about it. An apocalyptic disaster catches the four couples off guard, but they don’t let their issues take a back seat; instead they resolve to work them out.

The director was very keen in creating relationships that felt authentic as to have almost real people on screen reacting to an end of the world disaster. Berger injected comedy to the coming disaster; by having four unprepared couples that are at different stages of their relationships react in ways that would shock their significant other. Inspired by end of the world films such as ‘Night of the living dead’ and ‘2012’, he decided zombie’s have been overplayed and opted for a natural disaster instead; keeping in mind that the satirical part is that the end of the world is secondary to the character’s own problems. According to the director, panic runs out in a disaster situation, he aims to represent eight variations of human responses in this kind of situation. We anxiously wait to see what all the actors; Ferrera in particular, will be like in this comedy.

Check out the first picture and poster of the film ‘IT’S A DISASTER’.

Penélope Cruz, Almodóvar reteam in 'Standby Lovers'!

Penélope Cruz is back with Pedro Almodóvar to star in the Spanish film “Standby Lovers.” No word yet on who’ll she be playing, but what we do know is that film is a comedy about an affair on an airplane. Sounds funny already!

She’ll be joining a very good cast of Spanish actors: Lola Duenas (“Volver”), Cecilia Roth (“All About My Mother”), Paz Vega (“Talk To Her”) and Javier Camara (“Talk To Her”) plus newcomers, Carlos Areces, Raul Arevalo and Jose Maria Yazpik.

After she films “Standby Lovers” later this summer, she’ll officially join Ridley Scott’s “The Counselor”, a very awaited film with an elite cast composed of: Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz and Cruz’s husband Javier Bardem. No official word yet on her role, but she might be playing the part of Laura, the counselor’s fiancé. This film will mark the second time she works with her Bardem after the very lauded Vicky Cristina Barcelona from Woody Allen. She won her first Oscar Award for her performance with him. She was hilarious in the movie.

“The Counselor” is written by Cormac McCarthy and centers on the titular character who tries to make some quick money through a drug deal, with things going terribly wrong in the process.

Cameron Diaz joins Bardem, Cruz in 'The Counselor'

Cuban actress Cameron Diaz, who was just at the What To Expect When You’re Expecting premiere in NYC,  is in final negotiations to join the spectacular cast of The Counselor. It’s turning out to be be an all-star cast of Hispanic heavyweights that include power couple Javier Bardem and Pénelope Cruz.

Diaz will play Malkina in a supporting role. Fassbender plays the title role of a respected lawyer who thinks he can dip a toe into the drug business without getting sucked down, which proves to be a life threatening decision.

Ridley Scott will direct the drama with Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt in lead roles. Angelina Jolie was also in talks, but might have canceled now that Cruz is in the film.

Diaz will next be seen in the new Coen Brother’s film – Gambit for 2013.

Zoe Saldana could work alongside Batman

Dominican actress Zoe Saldaña, known worldwide for her starring role as Neytiri in Avatar, is in negotiations to join Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) in ‘Out of the Furnace . Little is known about the role other than that she will act as the ex-wife of Bale in the film. There is also speculation that her screen time will be plentiful.

The argument will focus on an ex-convict (Bale) trying to integrate back into society in a small town in Indiana, but is haunted by a figure from his past.

In an interesting note, the project, whose original name was Low Dweller, Rupert Sanders was initially attached to direct it, but Sanders retired and Scott Cooper was hired. Also Channing Tatum and Garrett Hedlund were considered to play the brother of Christian Bale. From what we understand, Casey Affleck is the winner of that competition.

Saldaña will join two other Hispanics at heart, Robert Duvall, who is about to confirm his role as Bale’s uncle while Viggo Mortensen could end up being the villain.

The Dominican actress has 4 upcoming films: Avatar 2, Blood Ties, Star Trek 2 and The Words.

The distribution company for Out of the Furnace is Relativity Media with Appian Way as the producer. Leonardo DiCaprio and Ridley Scott will serve as producers of the film. Still no release date.

Exclusive: First Spanish-language trailer of ‘Dream House’

Exclusive: First Spanish-language trailer of 'Dream House'

We just got our hands on the exclusive ‘Dream House’ Spanish language trailer from Universal Studios. You won’t find this video anywhere else except here. The film stars Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts in a half-ghost, half-mystery thriller about a family who unknowingly move into a home where several grisly murders were committed…only to find themselves the killer’s next target. Successful publisher Will Atenton (Craig) quit a job in New York City to relocate his wife, Libby (Weisz), and two girls to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived. When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from Ann Paterson (Watts), a neighbor who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the story of the last man to leave Will’s dream house will be just as horrifying to the one who came next.

The buzz around the ‘Dream House’ is rooted in the original trailer that supposedly reveals the twist of the film half way through. But according to an executive producer, the twist shown in the original trailer (which is not shown in the Spanish trailer) is not the main twist of the movie. So is there another one? We’ll all have to wit for the reviews to come in and see.

Dream House will be released September 30th, 2011.
