@Thisfunktional Talks With Greg Powell THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD

@Thisfunktional Talks With Greg Powell THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

Stunt coordinator Greg Powell looked forward to action packed “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” because it was set to have no CGI fights.

Having a script which was full of action is what a stunt coordinator looks for and having everything set in practical stunt work makes it even better.

“The reason I liked this script particularly, it was all live action. There was no CG fights,” Powell said. “It was all live action, which I love. These days there’s so much CGI it’s sort of taken over the whole film screen.”

The script may not have gone through many changes, but there was a change in director that changed the way the movie was shot, but not the content of the movie.

Working on so many stunts which varied and the different people involved in the stunts took some time.

“It went on for quite awhile, because we changed directors literally weeks before we started. There were some major changes,” Powell said. “The stunts and everything, we always going to do that stuff, nothing was ever taken out, it was just shot in a different way.”

Working with an experienced cast like Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, whom have experience makes Powell’s work easier.

Having people who enjoy what they do made Powell excited, especially since the cast brought skills which helped make creating the stunts more fun.

“Ryan (Reynolds) is very good because he actually rides a bike, he can fight, it makes it an awful lot easier, especially when they are enjoying the film,” Powell said. “It does help people like me when we are rehearsing and have to get their input and how they see it because we can get right into it, get their style and what they are thinking.”

Even with an experienced cast, the time needed to ensure safety which is Powell’s first concern takes time.

Practicing is an essential part of of the process and Powell was happy to get an opportunity to rehearse.

“We had lots of fight rehearsals, since there’s a number of fights in it,” Powell said. “Using doubles and a fight choreographer, the guys spent a number of weeks doing the fights. Then in Bulgaria we did some driving stuff.”

@Thisfunktional Talks With Manuel Garcia-Rulfo MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS

@Thisfunktional Talks With Manuel Garcia-Rulfo MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

Actor Manuel Garcia-Rulfo has had an amazing career with projects like “MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS,” out in theaters now, which has included him with magnificent casts.

The character of Biniamino Marquez in “MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS” brings Rulfo to a cast of 12 magnificent actors which entertain in a classic story by Agatha Christie.

“I really had alot of fun playing this character, because it’s so different from what I’ve done before or very different from who Manuel is,” Rulfo said. “I’m a very reserved, shy man and this character is very much an open book.”

Although having been on several movie sets, been part of great movies and played some great roles, Rulfo still finds he learns so much from his co-stars.

The challenges that come with getting into the mindset of each role brings different challenges for actors to each movie, which Rulfo said he found to be part of the fun of this character.

Along with the challenge of a new role, Rulfo said the experience of this movie helped him appreciate working with a veteran cast.

“I’m very proud and blessed and lucky,” Rulfo said. “Having the opportunity to work with all these amazing people, in magnificent seven with all the actors and the magnitude of such a film and now this film. Then La Vida Inmoral with a wonderful friend of mine, Manolo Caro, and all the actors in it. I like those projects that you benefit, not only from the outcome, but from everything like the people you work with and that you learn from the people you work with — directors and actors — I’ve been lucky from that.”

Rulfo was thrilled when he heard the actors he would be working with. He looked forward to work with actors who he knew from their work.

 “All these people, I’ve admired and followed their careers so much and I respect them,” Rulfo said. “To share scenes with them, it’s like a pinch moment. Every time I was there, on the train, I would look around and think ‘What the fuck am I doing here?’ They are such professionals and they have this amazing human quality.”

There’s not many opportunities to bring to life a classic tale which is widely known, or that an actor gets to put a spin on a classic character.

Rulfo said, “The opportunity of bringing a classic like this one of Agatha Christie to the big screen, that’s what made me say of course I’m in.”

World Series Viewers Were Treated To A Special Look At STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Dodger and Astro fans were anxiously watching Game 7 of the World Series as a special “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” aired.

In Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past. 

The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is written and directed by Rian Johnson and produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman. J.J. Abrams, Tom Karnowski and Jason McGatlin are the executive producers.

The dark trailer shows some much anticipated scenes, such as more lightsabers and flight battles.

As this spot is called “Awake,” it was expected to see some Force powers awaken and still there’s more questions brought up from the way the trailer leans to a dark training by Luke Skywalker.

Where does this trailer want the fans to think the story is going?

Will this cut of the trailer be the most accurate to the mood of the new film?

New Spanish Streaming App PANTAYA Launches With Support From Omar Chaparro, Maite Perroni

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

Latin American stars Omar Chaparro and Maite Perroni are proud to be the ambassadors for the Spanish-language streaming app Pantaya.

The Pantaya app will bring the major productions from not only the cinema from Mexico, but also from Spanish-speaking countries.

Along with cinema from Spanish-speaking countries, major motion pictures will be dubbed and subtitled for viewers to enjoy.

For Latin viewers who are more comfortable with the English-language subtitles from Spanish movies will also be available.

Aside from the major productions, many of the movies that have not had a United States release will have a platform for viewers to have access to them.

Chaparro said that users of the app will be able to keep up with movies from all Spanish speaking countries as well as rewatch the classic movies.

The app is able to search for movies by genre, country, language, decade and even actors.

The user interface is easy to navigate and contain a section which contains a history of movies watched as well as suggestions for movies the user may enjoy.

Perroni said that the entire family can gather around to watch movies off the app regardless of age or how well they understand English or Spanish. The movies are also released across all regions at once, so families in different countries can be watching the same content and talking to each other about what they have been watching.

As Hollywood struggles to be inclusive an app like PantaYa brings people together in a new way.

Content that wasn’t available in the United States before now has a platform to be seen. Actors who have remained unknown in Hollywood mainstream can now be seen by a new audience.

PantaYa is available now with a 7-day free trial and a monthly cost of $5.99 per month.

Available at
