We Have Another ‘Ferdinand’ Trailer And It’s Clear That The Movie Is Giving Us A Different Take On The Classic Tale

You might remember “The Story of Ferdinand” from your childhood. Mami, papi or a teacher probably read the story of a sweet bull in Spain who was considered a beast – but readers know that was anything but the case. All Ferdinand wanted to do was hang out in the pasture with his flowers because he is just chill AF.

Well, 20th Century Fox is bringing the story of Ferdinand to life… With a couple of plot changes. One of those changes features Gina Rodriguez as a helpful hedgehog named Una. The new trailer for “Ferdinand” has been released and it’s absolutely adora-bull. ? Here are a few points from the trailer that diverge from the original story written by Munro Leaf.

The new trailer for “Ferdinand” is out and it’s giving audiences a chance to see the difference between the movie and original story, like Ferdinand having a human family who loves and care for him.

We still get to see Ferdinand grow up from a sweet little calf into an enormous and fear-inspiring bull. If it wasn’t for his gentle nature, people would probably run the other way from him.

But don’t worry, they keep the big moments, like Ferdinand sitting on a bee and being mistaken as angry and aggressive.

In the original story, Ferdinand is stung in the pasture as men are looking for bulls to fight Matadors in Madrid. The trailer shows the same scene going down in the middle of one of Spain’s famous town plazas.

Confused, scared, and probably still sore from the bee sting, Ferdinand gets rounded up to fight matadors in Spain despite his gentle demeanor.

This is the part of the story that probably made you cry. Don’t lie.

This is when the real adventure begins, as Ferdinand starts doing everything he can to make it back to his family.

But, being a bull, the escape to freedom comes with some inevitable clumsy moments.

His whole escape is basically a giant metaphor for a bull in a china shop if that china shop is life and Ferdinand is all of us trying to make things work out the best we can.

Despite the clear divergence from the original story, the trailer shows that the heart of the story remains intact: Ferdinand is a lover, not a fighter.

Just like the book, Ferdinand prefers smelling the flowers in the arena rather than fighting the matador.

The New ‘In The Heights’ Trailer Is Out And You’ll Wish You Were In This Latino Fairytale

The New ‘In The Heights’ Trailer Is Out And You’ll Wish You Were In This Latino Fairytale

There is a new “In The Heights” trailer and release date and fans are getting excited (again)! This is the second time that Warner Bros. has released a trailer to tease the release of “In The Heights” but Covid derailed its first release. Here’s to summer of 2021!

Here’s the new trailer for “In The Heights.”

“In The Heights” is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first wildly successful musical before “Hamilton. The show is based in Washington Heights, a Latino and immigrant enclave in New York City where music runs through the streets and the residents.

Usnavi, portrayed by Anthony Ramos, is the protagonist who is central to the community. He runs a bodega that everyone visits and it isn’t long until he and his large community fight back to protect their friends and family.

The story has it all from love to despair to triumph.

Usnavi is in love with Vanessa, portrayed by Melissa Barrera, and their love story grows alongside the community through the summer. At the same time, it seems that Abuela Claudia, portrayed by Olga Merediz, is facing deportation and the community comes to her defense to keep her here.

Miranda and Jon M. Cho, the director of “Crazy Rich Asians,” beautifully captured the resilience and diversity of our neighborhoods. Actors Stephanie Beatriz, Dascha Polanco, and Leslie Grace bring the play to life on the big screen in a big way.

Fans cannot wait to see the new movie offering Latinos so much representation.

People have been anxiously waiting for this moment since 2008. That was the year that Universal Pictures announced their plans to make the movie adaptation of the play. It was supposed to be released in 2011 until Universals Pictures dropped the project. Then The Weinstein Company acquired the rights, however, Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct came to light and Miranda pulled the rights in response. Warner Bros. then got the rights in 2018 and we had our first trailer in 2019. It was slated to be released in June 2020 and the Covid caused the company to cancel the movie’s release. Now, with a deal with HBOMax, Warner Bros. will finally release “In The Heights” more than 10 years after fans were promised a movie.

“In The Heights” will be on HBOMax on June 18, 2021.

Salma Hayek Speaks Out About Filming The Sex Scene In ‘Desperado’ Calls It Traumatic

Salma Hayek Speaks Out About Filming The Sex Scene In ‘Desperado’ Calls It Traumatic

Salma Hayek is not putting her efforts of the #MeToo movement behind her. In fact, her most recent disclosure about her experience filming the 1995 movie Desperado proves she has yet to lose momentum. While the graphic film grossed $25.4 million in the United States box office and received rave reviews, Hayek says it wasn’t all great.

During a recent appearance on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast, Hayek opened up about her breakout role.


Sony Pictures Releasing

Speaking about her experience Hayek explained that she had not known at the time that she did not know she had been signedup to film a sex scene with costar Antonio Banderas.

“So, when we were going to start shooting, I started to sob, ‘I don’t know that I can do it. I’m afraid,'” Hayek said in the interview with Shepard. “One of the things I was afraid of was Antonio — he was an absolute gentleman and so nice, and we’re still super close friends — but he was very free. It scared me that for him, it was like nothing. I started crying, and he was like, ‘Oh my God. You’re making me feel terrible.’ And I was so embarrassed that I was crying.”

Speaking more about the experience, Hayek underlined that Banderas and director Robert Rodriguez tried their best to make her feel comfortable on set. She also added that she felt as if Rodriguez “never put pressure” on her.

Still, Hayek says that the experience was traumatic.

“I was not letting go of the towel,” Hayek explained. “They would try to make me laugh. I would take it off for two seconds and start crying again. But we got through it. We did the best with what we could do at the time.”

“When you’re not you, then you can do it. But I keep thinking of my father and my brother,” she went onto explain. “And are they going to see it? And are they going to get teased? Guys don’t have that. Your father will be, ‘Yeah! That’s my son!'”

Hayek and Banderas have remained friends since filming and they have gone on to star in five other projects.

In fact, just last year, Hayek presented Banderas with an award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Banderas was honored for his role in Pain & Glory with the International Star Award.
