This Week In Movies: ‘Operation Finale,’ ‘Kin,’ ‘Blood Fest’

‘This Week In Movies’ is a weekly article that catches you up on all the new film releases coming out every week. This week we have the lowest amount of releases we’ve seen in years – only five. The end of August is usually considered the worst week for movies in a calendar year. Nevertheless, all five films offer either star power (Oscar Isaac who is the new Batman, an interesting premise, or a perfect excuse to zone out and laugh). Read on! Read More

19 Hispanic Films To Watch In 2015

Movies, unlike TV, has been very slow to embrace diversity in Hollywood. Several studies show how low numbers account for a lack of multicultural stars in front of the camera and behind it, particularly for Hispanic talent. Nevertheless, every year these numbers are slowly improving. There is still a lot of work to do, but we here at ShowBizCafe.com, have decided then to highlight every single Hispanic movie being released in 2015. Read More

Machete Kills (Movie Review)

The “1-4-0″: “MACHETE don’t make good sequels.” He’s a great character who ran into a stale script full of retread jokes & too much dialogue. It’s not as funny anymore. Read More

This Week In Movies… ‘Riddick,’ ‘Salinger,’ ‘Mission Park’

Sixteen movie releases. This is one of the rare weeks where half of the new Hollywood releases are documentaries and my most anticipated viewing a documentary as well – Salinger. What is it? Perhaps its the Labor Day dates that aren’t too kind to studio pockets, perhaps it’s the public demand for more informative films and less escapism. “Why read a book when you can watch the documentary?” Or maybe it’s just coincidence. Whatever the principal reason is, blockbuster films are about to become persona non-grata in the next few months when Oscar season rears its head for the Fall.  Interesting to note is that after the success of the Latino movie “Instructions Not Included,” Hollywood will have their eyes wide open for Tio Papi and Mission Park‘s results.

Below is the list of all the movies coming out this weekend and I rank them in descending order of my interest…

First photo of Benicio Del Toro as Pablo Escobar in ‘Paradise Lost’

And here we have it. The first official photograph of Benicio Del Toro playing Colombian druglord Pablo Escobar in Paradise Lost. 

I had written an article about the news back in November od 2012 about Del Toro taking the gig after his “savage” performance in Oliver Stone’s Savages. He stole all the scenes in that film and word was that he could even be nominated come award season time. Even though he wasn’t, his acting left a mark and producers and directors were alert to him playing a druglord in a leading role in the future.  Read More

Is Alejandro González Iñárritu’s next film a comedy?

Ben Affleck‘s favorite director, Mexican helmer Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, is leeaving all the heavy depressing, multi-story dramas to make… a comedy. You heard that right, a comedy.

The name of the movie will be BIRDMAN and its premise will be about a former actor, who once played an iconic superhero, as he mounts a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim past glory. The movie will take place in one location over the course of three days as the actor juggles family, career and his sanity.. That sounds it’ll be either a hit or an embarassing failure. Nevertheless, I don’t mind evolution and aspiring to be more versatile.

Iñárritu said he co-wrote the film with Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris and Armando Bo and is eyeing a start in March.

Word is he still is planning The Revenant with Leonardo DiCaprio, but there is no pre-production date set to start.
