Bruce Willis, Robert Rodriguez Jam at the ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Party

20 August 2014 2:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Michael Bolton, Bruce Willis and Robert Rodriguez are in the same room with an open bar immediately following a film premiere, the evening is sure to be an interesting one.

On Tuesday night at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, Willis grabbed a harmonica and a mic, and Rodriguez was on the guitar at the “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” afterparty. The film’s cast including Jessica Alba, Powers Boothe, Jaime King, Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green and Mickey Rourke were all in attendance, not to mention the graphic novel creator and film’s co-director Frank Miller.

The two men, along with Rodriguez’s band, Chingon (which was formed to record songs for 2003’s “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”), jammed together on a stage that took up nearly a third of the Roosevelt’s ballroom. They sang the blues, culling inspiration from Stevie Ray Vaughan while Rodriguez »

Antonio Banderas interview: The Expendables 3, Desperado

11 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Veteran actor Antonio Banderas takls to us about his role in The Expendables 3, working with Robert Rodriguez on Desperado, and more...

One of the greatest strengths that Antonio Banderas possesses as an actor is his ability to be beloved by audiences for entirely different reasons.

For many, especially children, he’s the perfectly (I avoided a cat pun there) charming voice of Puss in Boots in all the DreamWorks incarnations, as well as the father of some uniquely problematic youngsters in the Spy Kids franchise. He’s also developed a rather substantial following of older viewers who appreciate his more romantic and smouldering side in the likes of Evita, Original Sin and Interview With The Vampire, as well as his earlier and racier work with Pedro Almodóvar.

However to me, as well as many of our readers I suspect, Banderas has made a great action hero over the years. »

The HeyUGuys Interview: El Mariachi Star Carlos Gallardo on his Forthcoming Masterclasses

28 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Between the 28 April and 5 May, El Mariachi himself Carlos Gallardo will be running a series of one day masterclasses across the UK to “inspire the young filmmakers.” To coincide with these events HeyUGuys had the privilege to speak with the iconic actor and producer. Talking with Gallardo, his voice beats with a passionate rhythm, of someone whose passion for cinema and filmmaking has only matured with age.

When we caught up with him he spoke about discovering his cinematic and creative inspiration, his collaborative relationship with Robert Rodriguez, the challenges faced and conquered, and offered us an insight into what he hopes to share with the aspiring filmmakers attending his masterclasses.

Why a creative career? Was there that one inspirational moment?

It all started when I was six years old in Acapulco, Mexico. We were a couple of kids who were left with a nanny when our parents went out. »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl'

3 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

A movie about pirates. Based on a theme park ride. Starring the eighth lead from Lord of the Rings and the second fiddle from Bend It Like Beckham. From the director of The Ring remake (which was good) and The Mexican (which was, well, The Mexican.) Yes, expectations were let’s-say-mild for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, a film which looked on paper like a high-concept travesty-in-waiting. (The full title was ten words long.)

But there was a wild card in Disney’s deck. When Pirates arrived in July 2003, Johnny Depp was a well-respected actor »

Danny Trejo interview: Bullet, Machete, Con Air, Muppets

Interview Duncan Bowles 13 Mar 2014 - 06:29

Duncan catches up with the star of Bullet and Machete to talk about stunts, dancing, and Miss Piggy...

The last but one answer in this interview has a slight spoiler for Muppets Most Wanted.

If there’s one thing I discovered from our chat with Danny Trejo, it’s that he laughs a lot. For an actor who’s made a career out of playing bad asses whose actions speak louder than words, it was a strange thing to hear him so openly chuckling – when our call was connected I asked how he was doing and he replied “Great, we were just talking about Mel Brooks and Blazing Saddles – probably before your time, but it’s really funny!” and what followed was one of the most entertaining interviews I’ve ever done.

We were lucky enough to get a good amount of Mr Trejo’s time, »
