“Ingobernable” Renewed for Second Season

10 hours ago | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Ingobernable

We haven’t seen the last of Emilia Urquiza. Netflix has renewed “Ingobernable” for a second season, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. The Spanish-language political drama centers on the fictional first lady, played Kate del Castillo.

In “Ingobernable’s” first episode, Emilia asks her husband, President Diego Nava, for a divorce. It’s not long before he’s dead and she’s on the lam, accused of murdering him. The series’ first season follows Emilia’s efforts to flee the government officials tracking her. While she rose to national attention as the President’s wife, Emilia proves that she’s totally badass in her own right. The character has been compared to a female Jason Bourne.

Just like the first season of “Ingobernable,” which debuted on Netflix March 24, the second season will feature 15 episodes. You’ll be able to stream the new season sometime next year.

Ingobernable” is Netflix’s first Spanish-language original drama.

“I’m very happy that the second season of ‘Ingobernable’ has been confirmed, because there’s still a lot to tell and new characters to meet,” del Castillo said. The actress is probably best known in the U.S. for her roles in Patricia Riggen’s features “The 33” and “Under the Same Moon,” as well as her turns in “Jane the Virgin” and “Weeds.” A superstar in her native Mexico, del Castillo became a household name with her roles in telenovelas like “Muchachitas,” “Azul,” “La mentira,” and “La Reina del Sur.”

Ingobernable” Renewed for Second Season was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Eugenio Derbez’s 3Pas Studios Woos Crossover Audience With Its First Film, ‘How to Be a Latin Lover’

19 April 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hispanic moviegoers are a huge slice of the U.S. film business, and yet few producers have cracked the secret of making titles that appeal specifically to that audience. The exception, it would seem, is Mexican star, director, and producer Eugenio Derbez, whose “Instructions Not Included” became the most successful Spanish-language movie ever in the U.S., grossing $44 million in 2013.

Now Derbez and his producing partner, Benjamin Odell, are opening the first title under their fledgling 3Pas Studios banner, the Ken Marino-directed comedy “How to Be a Latin Lover,” starring Derbez and Salma Hayek, with Raquel Welch, Rob Lowe, Kristen Bell, and Rob Riggle.

Pantelion Films, the Televisa-Lionsgate joint venture with which 3Pas Studios has an exclusive first-look pact, is doubling its typical screen count for the nationwide bow on April 28, with upwards of 800 screens. Pantelion’s largest release to date was for biopic “Cesar Chavez” on nearly 700 screens in 2014.

2017 Athena Film Festival – Report

27 February 2017 6:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The 2017 Athena Film Festival premiered from February 9th to 12th at Barnard College in New York. The festival, founded on the idea on seeing more female protagonists in films, celebrated its seventh year by showcasing a town hall meeting with multiple female activists. Along with the highly awaited event, the festival also premiered several female-leading movies, including Little Pink House, Girl Unbound, and Dolores. With such a packed schedule, the festival saw a huge turn out despite the large snowstorm that occurred just hours beforehand.

The festival was founded seven years ago by Kathryn Kolbert (from the Athena Center for Leadership Studies at Barnard College) and Melissa Silverstein (the artistic director of Women and Hollywood) with the original idea of seeing more leading ladies in films. That idea has skyrocketed to showcasing not only films with strong female roles, but also honoring screenplays in the festival’s own Black List, »

Number of Female Directors Falls Despite Diversity Debate, Says Study

12 January 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite all the editorials and the speeches and the handwringing, things aren’t getting better for women in Hollywood. They’re getting worse.

Women comprised just 7 percent of all directors working on the 250 highest-grossing domestic releases in 2016, a decline of two percentage points from the level achieved in 2015 and in 1998, according to a new report from the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University. The results come after two years of debate about the lack of opportunities for women and minorities to rise up through the studio system. It’s a conversation that has drawn the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, Elizabeth Banks, Jessica Chastain, and other stars, all of whom have publicly decried the lack of pay equity for women and the dearth of female filmmakers.

The report also hits as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (Eeoc) continues to investigate »

Hollywood’s Winners and Losers 2016: Why Movie Stars Flailed Next to Strong Women, African Americans, and Animated Heroes

2 January 2017 10:03 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As a year, 2016 is an auld acquaintance that we’d rather be forgot. However, as another familiar trope reminds us, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Here’s my assessment of the year Hollywood coped with change as the industry’s economic underpinnings continued to buckle and sway.

And for the Tl;Dr among us: Those who are able to innovate and adapt thrive. Others face decline.

Winners

Disney is the studio winner by a mile not only in domestic market share ($2.7 billion, 25.3 percent), but its stable of global moneymakers took the studio to more than $7 billion worldwide. Four of the five most profitable movies of the year came from Disney: “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (Lucasfilm), “Captain America: Winter Soldier” (Marvel), “Zootopia” (Disney Animation), and “The Jungle Book” (Disney). And blockbusters “Finding Dory” (Pixar), “Moana” (Disney Animation), and “Doctor Strange” (Marvel) weren’t far behind. »
