‘Highly Relevant’ Podcast Ep. 3: Latin Music, Horror Films, MTV’s VMAs

08.26.2016 | By |

I’m 3 weeks in doing the Highly Relevant podcast and it’s been a wondrous experience. I LOVE pop culture, but I detest the idea of having it be limited by a single language or culture. I want to talk to both sides of who I am – American and Latino. By tapping both sides, I get to discuss subjects that only enrich the conversations I’m having. There’s a global, international vibe to the dialogues I conduct and this third episode is a nice example of it. Read More

Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron‘s “Gravity” finally has a release date. It will come out in theaters October 4th, 2013.

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’.

'Anchorman 2' - First Teaser Trailer!

Director Adam McKay released the first teaser trailer of ‘Anchorman 2 ’ or ‘Anchorman: The Legend Continues’ last Wednesday in theaters with ‘The Dictator’, it is set to open in 2013.

This is something we’ve all been waiting for, since Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) made the big announcement about the sequel on Conan.

The plot possibly will have something to do with a diverse 24- hour news broadcast, as that’s how the last one closed off. We can be sure that it will be filled with hilarious and cruel one- liners like the ones delivered in ‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy’. Check out the trailer!

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.”

CANNES (May 15, 2011) – Principal photography began on GAMBIT, starring Academy Award© winner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech), Cameron Diaz (The Green Hornet, There’s Something About Mary), Golden Globe and BAFTA award winner Alan Rickman (Harry Potter Series, Alice In Wonderland) and BAFTA award winner Sir Tom Courtenay (The Golden Compass) in London on May 5th. In addition, Golden Globe winner Stanley Tucci (Julie & Julia) and Academy Award© winner and veteran comedic actress Cloris Leachman have joined the cast.
The film is directed by Michael Hoffman (The Last Station) and based on a screenplay written by Academy Award© winners Joel and Ethan Coen (True Grit, No Country for Old Men). Mike Lobell (The Freshman, Honeymoon in Vegas) is producing, alongside Crime Scene Pictures partners Adam Ripp and Rob Paris, who are also financing. Crime Scene Pictures is having an impressive inaugural year. Rizal Risjad and Philip Elway are executive producers.
Shooting in London and in New Mexico, the story centers on British art curator Harry Deane (Firth) who devises a finely-crafted scheme to con England’s richest man and avid art collector, Lionel Shabandar, (Rickman) into purchasing a fake Monet painting.  In order to bait his buyer, he recruits a Texas rodeo queen (Diaz) to cross the pond and pose as a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII.
The behind-the-scenes talent is equally stellar. Florian Ballhaus (Red, The Time Traveller’s Wife, The Devil Wears Prada) will serve as Director of Photography. Academy Award© winner Jenny Beavan (The King’s Speech, A Room with a View) will be the Costume Designer. Joining her are Hair and Makeup Chief Christine Blundell, Academy Award© winner for Topsy Turvey, and Production Designer Stuart Craig, a three-time Academy Award© winner (Gandhi, Dangerous Liaisons, The English Patient), who has multiple nominations for his work on the Harry Potter series.
FilmNation Entertainment is handling distribution outside of the United States, with CBS Films distributing in the United States. Alliance Films will be distributing the film in Canada, Momentum Pictures in the UK and Aurum Productions in Spain.
