“RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET” New Trailer, Poster & Images

image001

Check out a brand-new trailer for “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” introducing new characters, including the fierce and fun crew of racers from online racing game Slaughter Race. Ali Wong lends her voice to Felony, Timothy Simons voices Butcher Boy, Glozell Green brings Little Debbie to life and Hamish Blake provides the voice of Pyro. Also new to the roster of characters is Double Dan, the proprietor of the dark web’s apothecary. Voiced by Alfred Molina, Double Dan is massive, slimy and decidedly creepy with a second head called Little Dan tucked into his neck folds. “Ralph Breaks the Internet” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.

In “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. Their quest takes them to the vast, uncharted world of the internet where they rely on the citizens of the internet—the Netizens—to help navigate their way. Lending a virtual hand are Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had. Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Zootopia,” writer, “Cedar Rapids”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt,” “Lilo & Stitch”).

THE RACE IS ON – When video-game bad guy Ralph and Vanellope head to the internet in search of a replacement part for her game, Sugar Rush, they find themselves in the middle of Slaughter Race, an online racing game set in an apocalyptic world that’s populated by first-person players and gaming characters. As a racer herself, Vanellope is immediately drawn to this fierce and fun crew of racers who, unlike in other racing games, are much more multidimensional than at first glance. Among the core team of game characters in Slaughter Race are Felony (voice of Ali Wong), Butcher Boy (voice of Timothy Simons), Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), Little Debbie (voice of Glozell Green) and Pyro (voice of Hamish Blake).
image003
VIRUS ALERT – In “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” Vanellope befriends a tough and talented driver in an intense online racing game, leaving Ralph feeling left out, confused and willing to do anything to preserve his friendship with Vanellope. But even with the best intentions, Ralph’s efforts don’t always go as planned—particularly when he enlists the help of Double Dan, the proprietor of the dark web’s apothecary. Massive, slimy and decidedly creepy with a second head called Little Dan tucked into his neck folds, Double Dan formulates destructive viruses. Featuring John C. Reilly as the voice of Ralph, and Alfred Molina as the voice of Double Dan.

IMAGINE DRAGONS Write/Record End-Credit Song “Zero” For RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET

IMAGINE DRAGONS WRITE AND RECORD END-CREDIT SONG “ZERO” FOR “RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET”

“Zero” Available Today from KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records

IMG_2028

Imagine Dragons, the GRAMMY®-winning band behind recent hits “Natural” and “Whatever It Takes,” wrote and recorded the end-credit song “Zero” for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Ralph Breaks the Internet.” The song, which will be featured on the upcoming Walt Disney Records soundtrack album, is available today from KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records. Listen HERE. It was just featured as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1. The “Zero” lyric video also debuts today—check it out HERE. Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, “Ralph Breaks the Internet” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.

In the movie, video-game bad guy Ralph struggles with his evolving friendship with fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz. According to Imagine Dragons’ lead singer Dan Reynolds, the film’s emotional themes are reflected in the song “Zero.” “It’s a pretty timely movie in a lot of ways in that it addresses some of the issues of identity and loneliness unique to this internet generation,” says Reynolds. “Ralph’s internal struggle for self-acceptance really resonated with us, and this song speaks to that.”

Adds Moore, “It’s a bold choice for an end-credit song because it’s about someone who feels like a zero, someone who hasn’t always felt worthy, someone who’s allowed his entire sense of self to rely on a single friendship. When that friendship is threatened, there’s a lot of insecurity.”

“We can all relate to that feeling,” adds Johnston. “But the song tells us we’re not alone. They nailed the theme of the movie in a way that also makes you want to dance.”

Says Reynolds, “The song is a dichotomy in some ways, with sometimes heavy lyrics over pretty upbeat instrumentation. The result is a tone that is somewhat bittersweet, which felt appropriate given the complexity of Ralph as a character.”

“Zero” is now available from KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records:

Actor Boyd Holbrook takes on THE PREDATOR

Actor Boyd Holbrook takes on THE PREDATOR

Written by Jesus Figueroa

“The Predator” is now in theaters, actor Boyd Holbrook was honored to be part of the film and found that working with director Shane Black to be a different experience.

Although Holbrook said he enjoys doing action films, he really gets going when he is able to do character work and dive into a role with niche unique stories.

Being part of a cast that continues a fan favorite franchise like that of the Predator franchise brought Holbrook a great opportunity to live a dream of his.

Holbrook said the character of McKenna gave him an opportunity to play a Harrison Ford or Clint Eastwood type character, which he has been a fan of.

McKenna is a character which starts off as a lone wolf and gets thrown into a dysfunctional group of heroes that are the underdogs, which when put up against the predators any human warrior would be an underdog.

With the unpredictability of director Shane Black, Holbrook said it was a fun experience to be part of the amazing group of heroes, nicknamed The Loonies, of “The Predator.”

The Loonies was a strange group of soldiers that are under psychological treatment which brought comical moments.

Holbrook said that it was hard to keep a straight face with this group because they were all very funny and it was fun to be around the group while on set.

The group quickly go from being strangers who happen to be put together on a bus as they are being transported to a group of soldiers who are on a mission and Holbrook said that they all collaborated well and they were all very well cast.

The film had scenes, such as McKenna’s return home, which were highly improvised and written on the spot keeping the film being a cooperative process.

Holbrook said that if there is a sequel he would enjoy coming back and being the main warrior again, which with the ending of “The Predator” the audience knows exactly in what role he would want his character to take.

SHINE brings actor David Zayas memories of the New York culture

SHINE brings actor David Zayas memories of the New York culture

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Actor David Zayas find “Shine” gives an authentic view of New York while it puts the culture of the streets of New York prominently against the destruction gentrification brings.

With “Shine” coming to theaters October 5, Zayas finds that the music and story drive a message of balancing tradition and culture with modernization and improvement.

As an actor with a long list of film and TV credits, Zayas saw that “Shine” was well written by Anthony Nardolillo and an exciting story.

Zayas thought that the story resonated with him because it brought back memories of growing up in New York and how proud the Hispanics of New York are of their culture. Some of the scenes of the movie were filmed in neighborhoods that he grew up in.

“Shine” gave Zayas the opportunity to step away from darker roles he has played, and is known for, to take on a role which has heart and which he said he was honored to get to play.

The film co-stars Gilbert Saldivar and Jorge Burgos. Zayas said that the two actors were respectful and worked hard to give the best performance they possibly could.

Find out more about “Shine,” David Zayas and the cast of the movie in September’s issue of Thisfunktional Magazine.

Marimar Vega found joy in being part of LA BODA DE VALENTINA

Marimar Vega found joy in being part of LA BODA DE VALENTINA
Written by Jesus Figueroa
Comedies can be stressful to film, but actress Marimar Vega found that working with the passionate actors in “La Boda de Valentina” was fun.
Romantic comedies are often silly for the people to watch, but Vega said that having an accomplished comedian like Omar Chaparro on set made the filming as funny as the movie and her other co-star Ryan Carnes was a joy to work with as well because he was always prepared and the three co-stars always had fun.
Vega said Chaparro would keep the set very light as he was always singing and having fun when they had downtime on set.
While not many films from Mexico make it into the big screen in the U.S., “La Boda de Valentina has seen success in theaters in Mexico and wide release as well as home entertainment release.
Now, “La Boda de Valentina” comes to streaming service PantaYa, where even more people have an opportunity to enjoy the film.
Vega said that actors want a wide variety of people to enjoy their projects and it’s been amazing how well received the film was in theaters, the response it has had on blu-ray and now even more people will have a chance to view the film and hopefully enjoy it as well.
In this romantic comedy, Mexican-born Valentina (Marimar Vega), with the perfect life in the United States, accepts boyfriend Jason’s (Ryan Carnes) marriage proposal. 
But when he suggests the wedding take place in Mexico, the decision unleashes a cultural clash between the groom’s family – the perfect Tates – and the  the Hidalgos – the bride’s family and the most chaotic and surrealist political dynasty in the history of Mexico. 
It gets even messier when Valentina’s ex – the charismatic Angel (Omar Chaparro) – resurfaces and tries to reinsert himself in her life, competing with Jason for her love and attention.

PRESENTS
THE NEW TRAILER FOR NICOLE HOLOFCENER’S

IMG_1825Directed by | Nicole Holofcener
Written by | Nicole Holofcener
Produced by | Anthony Bregman, Stefanie Azpiazu, Nicole Holofcener
Starring | Ben Mendelsohn, Edie Falco, Thomas Mann, Elizabeth Marvel, Bill Camp, Charlie Tahan, and Connie Britton

SYNOPSIS: Writer/director Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said, Friends with Money) brings us a drama about parenting, loss and the consequences of our self-destructive behavior.  The story features a deeply flawed male protagonist whose tragic mistakes impact and inform the complex relationships in his life.  Far from a recognizable tale of a middle-aged rake in crisis, this is an emotionally resonant portrait of a fractured family explored by one of our most keenly observant directors.

Feeling trapped in the stifling, wealthy enclave of Westport, Connecticut, Anders Hill (Ben Mendelsohn) retires from his job in finance and leaves his wife (Edie Falco) in the hopes that it will renew his lust for life. However, he’s quickly faced with the startling reality of his choices; he spends his days looking for things to decorate his empty shelves, sleeping with strangers and feeling terribly lost.

Missing his ex-wife and on the outs with his troubled 27-year-old son (Thomas Mann), Anders befriends a drug-addicted teen (Charlie Tahan), sending him down a path of reckless and of deeply regrettable behavior. His shameful actions cause him to question who he is as a father and, ultimately, who he is as a person.

Adapting her screenplay  from Ted Thompson’s 2014 novel, The Land of Steady Habits also stars Connie Britton, Elizabeth Marvel and Bill Camp.

Watch The Land of Steady Habits on Netflix starting September 14!
