This Week In Movies: ‘The Huntsman,’ ‘Elvis & Nixon,’ ‘A Hologram for the King’

04.19.2016 | By |

We’re in the middle of April and this week in movies offers us some bizarre movie releases. First off, we need to talk about this new Tom Hanks movie, A Hologram for the King, that isn’t getting any buzz, no coverage, no interviews with Hanks and no marketing or promotion whatsoever. What Twilight Zone reality are we living in? Never have we ever been privy to a Tom Hanks film that isn’t some sort of event. Just bizarre all around.

07.17.2015 | By |

Latina power! It is a rarity when two A-List latinas get together for a Hollywood movie. Salma Hayek, Jessica Alba should be a great watch! Hayek did it Penelope Cruz for ‘Bandidas’ but got no interest back in 2006. Will this one work? Glad to see power Latinas getting together to make some ol’ fashion Hollywood fare.

Watch the trailer and let us know what you think! Read More

Savages: New pics with Hayek, Bichir, Del Toro

Savages: New pics with Hayek, Bichir, Del Toro

Latinos are in the house in the new film SAVAGES from Universal Pictures. Benicio del Toro, Demián Bichir and Salma Hayek star in Oliver Stone‘s new film.

We just received some new pics of the cast, plus some of the gringos on it like Grease/Saturday Night Fever star John Travolta and Gossip Girl Blake Lively. Do yourself a favor and check them out below…

Stone who is known for doing gritty movies and getting the best out of his actors through juicy roles, with someone getting an acting nod in this saga, promises one hell of a ride.

Here’s the official synopsis of ‘Savages’: Three-time Oscar®-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone returns to the screen with the ferocious thriller Savages, featuring the all-star ensemble cast of Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek, Emile Hirsch and Demian Bichir. The film is based on Don Winslow’s best-selling crime novel that was named one of The New York Times’ Top 10 Books of 2010.  Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Johnson), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry–raising some of the best marijuana ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Lively). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town…until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them.  When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon–with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (Travolta)–wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.

Grown Ups Movie Review

06.25.2010 | By |

Grown Ups

In the 1980’s, successful comedies seemed like a dime a dozen. Now a days, we have to settle for ‘Grown Ups,’ where the laughs are few, but the apathy is plentiful.

After their high school basketball coach (Blake Clark) passes away, five good friends (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider) and former teammates reunite with their families for a Fourth of July holiday weekend.

There are a couple of problems that set ‘Grown Ups’ up as a disappointment for me. One of the issues I had with it was the marketing. The reputation some of the actors have are that of R rated comedians. The mere sight of Chris Rock is worth a hard R from a mile away (“tired of this sh*t, tired, tired, tired of this sh•t,” as his foul mouthed stand up routine goes). It’s easy to be misled as to why this movie looks like ‘Old School’ with Will Ferrell. Just look at the trailers, TV spots, and posters. Whenever the public is misguided to thinking they’re going to see one thing and it doesn’t deliver, there is an automatic sense of rejection. That happened to me here. I got duped.

Secondly, I had issues with the tame dialogue of the script. The stars, mostly known for their profanities and uncouth behavior in films, seemed out of their element. They show a benign side to them that is unfamiliar to me. Aside from Sandler’s ‘Bedtime Stories,’ amongst other family movies he’s starred in, the film is really a let down. I was expecting so much more from it. Such a talented cast, but no creativity in the script.

The female cast composed of Salma Hayek, Maria Bello and Maya Rudolph complemented the male leads very well. Salma didn’t necessarily showcase her Oscar nominee skills, but her ‘accented’ charm is more than ‘voluptiously’ appealing.

Overall, I thought ‘Grown Ups’ would possess grown up R humor, but instead it delivers a family movie for adults with infantile jocularity. Not what I was expecting.

Salma Hayek in ‘Cirque Du Freak’

Salma Hayek in 'Cirque Du Freak'

Salma Hayek is hot but the beard kind of kills it here. We just got the a look at Salma as a bearded lady in Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant due out October 23.

Hayek costars as Madame Truska, the hirsute woman in a traveling freak show and girlfriend of the titular vampire (John C. Reilly). The fantasy, based on the popular young-adult books, follows a boy (Chris Massoglia) who becomes an apprentice to Reilly’s vamp. Hayek’s character sprouts whiskers every time she gets passionate with her boyfriend.

“So she needs to be very comfortable with herself, which Salma really is in real life,” says director Paul Weitz (About a Boy). “I thought, of all people to have that problem, she’d be an interesting one.”

Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant is the 2009 film adaptation of the first three books of the book series, The Saga of Darren Shan, by author Darren Shan. The movie began filming on February 8, 2008 in New Orleans and ended June 3, 2008.The film is distributed by Universal Studios. Some of the movie was filmed on a set constructed within New Orleans City Park, approximately 1000 feet off of the side of the road, along Harrison Avenue. The film was originally set for release on January 15, 2010, but was moved to October 23, 2009.

Johnny Depp to join Bardem, Hayek, Cruz in new ‘Pancho Villa’ film?

Johnny Depp to join Bardem, Hayek, Cruz in new 'Pancho Villa' film?

Emir Kusturica, a renowned director, is slowly gathering collaborators for his new film about the legendary revolutionary Pancho Villa, with a working title “Seven friends of Pancho Villa and a woman with six fingers”. The acting crew currently including Javier Bardem, Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz could soon be joined by the great Hollywood star Johnny Depp. Kusturica is soon leaving to Puerto Rico to negotiate with Depp in order to renew their collaboration after 18 years from shooting of the film “Arizona Dream.”

Kusturica spent last weekend in Venice at the wedding of the Mexican actress Salma Hayek and the French multimillionaire Francois-Henri Pinault. On this occasion, he met Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz who will have roles in his film about Pancho Villa. Shooting is planned to start until the end of this year. The script is written by Kusturica’s regular collaborator Goradan Mihic, but it is based on “The Friends of Pancho Villa”, James Carlos Blake’s fictional account of Pancho Villa’s life from the point of view of his lieutenant with a lot of true details from the Mexican Revolution.

Kusturica has been fascinated by this powerful figure from his students’ days.
“Pancho Villa is a man with an idea of justice, equality and anti-imperialism. Reasons for shooting this film are coming from the inside, as a strong feeling to show his life,” Kusturica has recently said for “Blic” and added that the film will be shot in several locations including Spain, Mexico and Serbia (Mokra Gora).
Considering the fact that the film will unites reality and fiction, it is understandable why Kusturica decided to choose Johnny Depp. Their film from 1991 “Arizona Dream” gained great success and it was awarded by the “Silver Bear” in Berlin.

“Emir is not a typical director. He is more of an ethereal one. Working with him is my best collaboration so far. I would even jump from the Eiffel Tour for him,” Johnny Depp once described his collaboration with our famous director.

Salma Hayek to work on Gabriel Garcia Marquez's new film

Mexican-born film star Salma Hayek could take a lead role in an upcoming adaptation of the book “News of a Kidnapping” by Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the movie’s producer says.

Shooting is scheduled to start this October in Bogota and in Mexico on the adaptaion of the 1996 book, a factual account of the kidnapping of 10 journalists by notorious Colombian drug trafficker Pablo Escobar.

Producer Eduardo Constantini, from Argentina, told AFP he hopes for “the most international cast possible” and that Hayek is a possibility.
“Salma Hayek is very interested in the project, has read the script and is enthusiastic,” Constantini said in New York.

Garcia Marquez is considered one of the major writers of the 20th century. His books include the novels “One Hundred Years of Solitude” and “Love in the Time of Cholera,” which was made into a film.

Salma Hayek to join Adam Sandler’s new comedy

Adam Sandler’s new, yet-to-be-titled Sony comedy is finally upping its estrogen content, adding Salma Hayek.

It’s still shaping up to be an excuse for Sandler to act alongside some of his comedy mates – Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade and Rob Schneider are already all aboard.

And regular Sandler collaborator Denis Dugan is directing the tale of five high school best mates who reunite 30 years after graduating.

Since Sandler’s producing, he gets to have Hayek play his missus, while Rudolph will be Rock’s other half.

Salma Hayek returns to primetime TV

There’s nothing but love between Alec Baldwin and Salma Hayek, who recently shot a five episode arc on “30 Rock” where the 42-year-old beauty will be playing Jack Donaghy’s love interest.

“She was literally the most fabulous woman that I’ve ever worked with,” Baldwin, 50, told People Magazine.
Ditto, according to Hayek. “We had such a great time!” she said at the CNN Heroes event on Saturday, “I love Alec to death. He energizes me … because he’s so talented. He really, truly inspires me.”
“This is the gift that Alec gave me,” she said of the wrap, “just for being his girlfriend for five episodes. I feel like he’s coming with me tonight!”
Check out some of the pics of her Salma (sans daughter) caught idling by in Manhattan.
