Tina Fey Gets Ambushed By Billy on The Street, Can't Name 20 Latino Performers

1 October 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Maybe Tina Fey hadn't had her coffee yet?   On the Season 4 premiere of "Billy on the Street," comedian Billy Eichner ambushes Fey and asks her to name 20 Latino performers in Hollywood for a special segment, titled "Latina Fey." Let's just say it wasn't the "30 Rock" star's finest performance -- check out the video above to see how she did!  To start, Tina didn't seem too confident when she found out Eichner's latest task. Fey couldn't even remember "Jane The Virgin" star (and Golden Globe winner) Gina Rodriguez's name in the first few seconds of the game. "The woman from 'Jane the Virgin,'" the comedienne said off the bat. The "Mean Girls" star did manage to identify a few stars by name like Eva Longoria, Lou Diamond Phillips, Danny Trejo, Freddie Prinze Jr., J.Lo and Marc Anthony ... but used only descriptions for others.  "The guy that’s »

Filmmakers Try Mix of Genres to Lure Latino Audiences From Hollywood Hits

25 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hispanics in the U.S. go to the movies a lot, but reaching them with anything other than Hollywood blockbusters is a challenge for America’s Latino filmmakers.

Pantelion, a joint venture of Lionsgate and Televisa, and the only major Latino distribution outfit that targets the U.S. market, saw the power of the Hispanic audience in 2013, when its Mexican import “Instructions Not Included,” a family dramedy from Eugenio Derbez, made $44 million domestically. And with a 2014 MPAA report citing Hispanics as 23% more likely to purchase movie tickets than are other ethnic groups, relative to their share of the population, Pantelion is looking to double down in the domestic market, even as distribution startups are hoping for a piece of the action.

While Pantelion has not yet had another success on the level of “Instructions” — the elusive U.S. Latino market is drawn to superhero fare, just like the wider audience »

Eiza González Talks From Dusk Till Dawn Season 2

22 September 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Santánico Pandemonium (Eiza González) is free from her prison and on the prowl for revenge in the second season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series. Ahead of the fifth episode's debut tonight on the El Rey Network, Daily Dead took part in an interview call with González, who discussed working with Danny Trejo, watching From Dusk Till Dawn the movie when she was six, and much more.

González on the creative freedom of season two:

Eiza González: In the first season we were very on the books of the original movie. We had to respect the storyline of each and every character. This time I’m very excited because we got to be off the books for the whole second season and just create a whole new world for each of the characters.

She’s leaving—for the first time—the Titty Twister and she’s walking out into the real world. »

Danny Trejo Doesn’t Mind Being Typecast as ‘Mean Chicano Dude With Tattoos’

18 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Danny Trejo, who won two boxing titles while serving time in prison in his youth, is best known playing the ethnic heavy in hyper-macho mid-’90s genre films like “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “Desperado” and “Blood In, Blood Out.” These days, he’s in such demand that this year alone he’s attached to more than 20 projects, including Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn” TV series. It was his role in another TV project, as Raul Galindez in the TV movie “Shannon’s Deal,” written by John Sayles, that earned him his first mention in Variety.

What do you remember about “Shannon’s Deal”?

We shot that in Philadelphia. And we did a scene in the Spectrum where the 76ers used to play. I was walking around the Spectrum holding a machine gun. And Michael Jordan was still with the Bulls, who were playing the 76ers. And that’s about it. »

Casting 'Clown Car '16, the Movie'

8 September 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Start with the title: Clown Car! may sound like the movie someone will inevitably make about the 2016 presidential campaign, but how about evoking those great Seventies wacky-journey films like Death Race 2000, Vanishing Point or Smokey and the Bandit?

When I raised the question on Twitter, suggestions included All the President's Wanna-Bes, Every Which Way But Left, Cannonball Rug, A Kochwork Orange and the subtly appropriate Hair.

All excellent ideas, and we may have to put the movie name to a separate vote. Right now, though, the more pressing question is »

New ‘LatinHeat Cinema’ Streaming Service to Launch

4 September 2015 6:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Latin Heat Media LLC and non-profit org American Latino Theatre (Alt) have joined forces to launch LatinHeat Cinema, a streaming service aimed at both the 54 million-strong U.S. Latino market as well as international auds. The new platform addresses the paucity of distribution opportunities for indie Latino filmmakers, and invites them to submit their works to the site.

LatinHeat Cinema is powered by dotstudioPRO, a streaming platform that provides management, monetization, distribution and tracking tools to content creators.

Filmmakers will have full control of their market, said Alt founder-filmmaker David Llauger-Mieselman, who was born in New York City of Puerto Rican-Russian parents. “They will know, through our metrics, who their audience is and how viewers are responding to their product,” he said. They can opt to market their films themselves or tap LatinHeat Cinema’s marketing services, he added.

LatinHeat Cinema launches on September 17, the same day urban drama “Strike One »

Why All Film Directors Should Be Forced To Make A Film For $7,000

30 August 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway argues that every film director should have to make an ultra low-budget film…

This week brought the news that Robert Rodriguez planned to mark the 25th anniversary of his debut, El Mariachi, by making another film for $7,000.

If you don’t know the story of El Mariachi‘s production, then you really should read Rodriguez’s book Rebel Without a Crew, his diary of the making of the film. To raise the money for the film he checked himself into a research hospital to participate in a study and write the script. There he met Peter Marquardt, who he would cast as the bad guy in the film and would later become a video game producer, before sadly dying last year. Rodriguez begged and borrowed favours and equipment to shoot the film (not having a dolly or track for his camera, he used a wheelchair from »

From Dusk Till Dawn: Season Two Premieres 8/25; Austin Mayor Makes It “From Dusk Till Dawn Day”

24 August 2015 5:44 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Last year, we saw the debut of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, which brought the Tarantino-penned/Robert Rodriguez-directed film to the small screen, in a very different approach. It was quite the interesting series, taking turns that were very unexpected and different than the film, which set the TV series on its own path. Now with the August 25th premiere of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Season Two set to make its debut, Austin TX mayor Steve Adler has made August 25th “From Dusk Till Dawn Day”, in a celebration held at Troublemaker studios.

Rodriguez had the following to say: “Austin is my home and I’m honored to have collaborated with the Austin creative community all these years making movies and television for the world to see. I’m so proud that From Dusk till Dawn is Austin made and that we can celebrate this day with the community. »
