For more than a decade, actor Shalim Ortiz, who is of Puerto Rican and Dominican heritage, has successfully crisscrossed between the American (“Magic City“) and Latin (“Dama y Obrero“) worlds of film and television — a privilege only a few experience — but his initial mark was made in music. In 2003, Ortiz was actually well known for his second and last album “Cuarto Sin Puerta”, an Emilio Estefan collaboration. Remember “Se Me Olvido Tu Nombre,” the huge hit from 2003? It reached #2 on the Latin Billboard charts, and now 11 years later, he’s toying with the idea of returning music again with “Va a Llover,” a single made just in time for Valentine’s Day. Read More
Mexican American actress/singer Selena Gomez lends her voice to Columbia Pictures new animated family comedy in ‘Hotel Transylvania‘ and now the studio has unveiled her new character poster. Check it out below along with others from the cast.
If you still don’t know anything about the movie here’s the official synopsis on the movie: Welcome to Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of his best friends – Frankenstein and his wife, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Werewolf family, and more – to celebrate his beloved daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but everything could change for the overprotective dad when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
Gomez plays the teen daughter of Dracula who is antsy to have her freedom and be an adult, but makes matters worse when she develops a crush with a human.
We had a chance to see 20 minutes of the movie several months ago at at an exclusive private screening with director Genndy Tartakovsky – who will now be directing the new Popeye – and it delivered the laughs and gags. The comedy is for kids, but adults will be able to enjoy it as well.
Hotel Transylvania is released on September 28th in the US.
