@Thisfunktional talks with Becky G, Alex Neustaedter A.X.L.

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Actors Becky G and Alex Neustaedter talk with Jesus Figueroa, @Thisfunktional of thisfunktional.com, about their roles in “A.X.L.”

Becky G and Neustaedter talk about having fun while on the set and there possibly being some kind of artificial intelligence like A.X.L. as soon as 5 years from now. Becky G talked about growing up dirt bike and ATV riding, while Neustaedter found an appreciation for motocross because of this role.

In the vein of classic ’80s family movies “SHORT CIRCUIT” and “FLIGHT OF THE NAVIGATOR,” “A.X.L.” is a new adventure about a down-on-his luck teenage bike rider, Miles (Alex Neustaedter), who stumbles upon an advanced, robotic, military dog named A.X.L. Endowed with next-generation artificial intelligence but with the heart of a dog, A.X.L. forms an emotional bond with Miles, much to the chagrin of the rogue military scientists who created A.X.L. and would do anything to retrieve him. Knowing what is at stake if A.X.L. gets captured, Miles teams up with his smart, resourceful crush, Sara (BeckyG), to protect his new best friend on a timeless, epic adventure for the whole family.

A.X.L.
In Theaters August 24.

Actress Diana Bovio talks about HASTA QUE LA BODA NOS SEPARE

Written by Jesus Figueroa

“Hasta Que La Boda Nos Separe,” premiered on PANTAYA on June 15, and actress Diana Bovio shared her thoughts.

Bovio’s first major leading role in a feature film that is released worldwide through the streaming service PANTAYA led her to be part of a romantic comedy which she was honored to be a part of.

The project was so thrilling, Bovio said, as she has never been married, but it was fun to explore extreme situations which could be stressful for a bride but funny to an audience.

Bovio’s character Maria has the opportunity to have two weddings, one that will please her family and her dream wedding as well and not let her parents know of the second wedding.

As Maria goes through the chaotic day of having two weddings and getting her dream wedding, because she’s had everything catered to her by her fiancé, the stress gets to her.

Bovio felt it was fun to part of a comedy that was very grounded in the Mexican culture, but still keeping universal themes.

Although all Mexicans can relate to the way the wedding is celebrated, much of the comedy comes from instances that can happen at any wedding.

Bovio isn’t married, but was thrilled to get to play the part of a bride and wear the dress. She enjoyed getting to go through the traditional wedding without the stress of a real wedding.

Since it was a romantic comedy, Bovio said that there is many hilarious parts and still some drama which is expected, especially when two weddings are involved.

PANTAYA allows a wide audience to be able to watch “Hasta Que La Boda Nos Separe” much like Netflix, but centers around promoting projects from Mexico that wouldn’t have major distribution other wise.

Bovio is honored to have PANTAYA distribute the project so more people can get exposed to the talents of new actors from Latin America. More than 2 million people have watched “Hasta Que La Boda Nos Separe” in Mexico and now there’s an opportunity for a wider audience to watch it as well.
