Viernes de Estrenos con Jack Rico: ‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘The Infiltrator,’ ‘Libertador’

It’s Friday and for those of you just getting to know me, there is a Spanish-language version to me. I do a weekly Spanish-language Movie and Broadway segment on NY’s Telemundo 47. So why don’t we flip into Spanish? Si le gusta consumir sus noticias de cine y Broadway en español, entonces ‘Viernes de Estrenos’ es para usted. Esta semana les traigo 3 películas, una de Simón Bolivar. Veame cada jueves a las 10am por Telemundo 47 NY.

The Best Spanish-Language Movies Streaming on Netflix!

At the beginning of this year, I posted an article titled “The Best Netflix Streaming Movies To Watch Right Now!” that has garnered over 14,000 shares. Even though it was a hit with our users, none of those films were Spanish-language movies. That was done deliberately because I was writing the sequel, so to speak, “The Best ‘Spanish-Language’ Movies Streaming on Netflix!”. Read More

First pic of Edgar Ramirez as ‘Simon Bolivar’!

First pic of Edgar Ramirez as 'Simon Bolivar'!

Here is the first look at Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez as Simon Bolivar in the new movie Libertador being released in 2013.

For those of you that have no clue of who Simon Bolivar is and why they’re making a movie about this man, he is the George Washington of South America. He gave 6 countries in Latin America (Venezuela, Colombia, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia) their independence. He did more than Washington did!

If Hollywood is doing movies on J. Edgar Hoover, then Latinos should do a biopic on historical and political figures as well. Bolivar is perhaps the most important of all, if not the most.

Libertador is the largest independent South American production to date and will be directed by Alberto Arvelo, produced by Edgar Ramirez himself and scored by L.A. Philharmonic music director Gustavo Dudamel, who is from Venezuela. Just Dudamel alone should be reason enough to pay money to see this film.

Libertador follows the life of Simon Bolivar, as he liberated many countries in Latin America from the Spanish empire. It’ll explore his political journey and his death.

Ramirez, who made waves with his performance in Carlos, is next in U.S. theaters in Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, which Sony opens in December. In France, he’s currently in theaters in An Open Heart, starring opposite Juliette Binoche.
