The Trailer For ‘Annihilation’ Just Came Out And It Features Three Of Our Favorite Actors

I just saw the trailer for “Annihilation” and it looks like it may have everything I’ve ever wanted in a film: suspense, sci-fi, and Latino actors.

Yes, I said actors, as in more than one Latino. And, no, it’s not an low-budget indie movie. It’s the real deal, and it’s about freakin’ time.

The film reunites “Ex Machina” writer and director Alex Garland with the one and only Oscar Isaac.

Here’s the synopsis of the film, according to IMDB: “A biologist signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition where the laws of nature don’t apply.” The film is based on the award-winning book by Jeff VanderMeer, and from the trailer we can’t really tell how much Isaac is actually in the film. From the looks of it, he is very sick. His wife, played by Natalie Portman, goes on a expedition to figure out what happened to him.

The film also stars Gina Rodriguez as anthropologist Anya Thorensen.

As we mentioned, Portman goes on a journey to some weird-ass place (where people look like plants, no joke) and takes a team that includes Thorensen. Based on the image Rodriguez posted on her Instagram, it looks like she gets into some real trouble — she does not look good.

Tessa Thompson is also in the movie!

This Afro-Latina (seen in “Creed,” “Thor,” and “Selma”) is also part of Portman’s team and plays a surveyor. I was pretty thrilled about seeing this addition because her work in “Creed” and “Dear White People” is incredible.

Several people on Twitter were pretty thrilled to see all these fabulous Latinos in one movie.

SAME!!!!

While this movie in no way fixes the lack of Latino representation in TV and film, it’s a good start. And we need more diversity in the arts asap.

Channing Tatum And Diego Luna Discover They Have A Few Things In Common While On ‘The Late Late Show’

“Sadly, if I put together all the people who have watched my films, it doesn’t hit the number that this music video got after two weeks on YouTube.”

As recent guests on James Corden’s “The Late Late Show,” Diego Luna, Channing Tatum and Adam Scott discovered the three of them have something in common: they’ve all “starred” in a music video. Back in the early 2000s, Tatum appeared in Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs” music video. However, Tatum recalled he was hardly noticeable since he was one of three men surrounded by a large crowd of about 200 women. After looking at a picture of Tatum in Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs,” Corden then pulled out a picture of Luna in Katy Perry’s video for “The One That Got Away.” With over 600 million views, Luna poked fun at how this Katy Perry music video probably has more views than all of his films combined. “When I die they’re going to say, ‘Oh the guy from the Katy Perry video just died,'” joked Luna. Lastly, Corden reminded Scott of his appearance in a throwback Tia Carrere music video. Scott admitted he thought he was being cast for a major role, but it turned out he was only being cast as an extra in the music video.

Luna and Tatum also learned about another talent they have in common…

Corden reminded Luna of his dance moves as Javier Suarez in 2004’s “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights.” After being cast as one of the lead dancers for the movie, Luna noted how traumatized the dance film left him. “I hear salsa and I start shaking,” joked Luna. Tatum also knows what it’s like to be in a dance film — after his role in the movie “Step Up,” he says he couldn’t step into a nightclub without people wanting to battle him.

On a more serious note, the segment closed with Luna speaking about the aftermath of the Mexico City earthquake. In response, Tatum showed his support.

In an effort to help everyone who has been affected by the earthquake in Mexico City, Luna shared a crowdfunding campaign that he put together with his good friend Gael Garcia Bernal. To further raise awareness, Tatum posted a video about the campaign to his own social media accounts, encouraging his fans to donate anything they possibly can.
