Platino Awards: Edward James Olmos on Latino Power and Donald Trump

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Soon to be seen in “Blade Runner 2049,” where he reprises his role as Gaff, Edward James Olmos sounded a note of large hope for Latino moviemaking as he talked to journalists in Madrid a day before he receives the 2017 Honorary Platino Award for career achievement.

Latinos account for more than 20% of the population but only 4% of images in the U.S., said Olmos, a seasoned voice of Hollywood’s Latino film and TV community who shot to fame in “Miami Vice” to snag an Oscar nomination for “Stand and Deliver.”

That contrasts with Afro-Americans – 12% of Americans and 17% of images. In 1940, there were 750 cinema theaters in the U.S. screening movies in Spanish. Now there are only 35, Olmos said, adding he was shocked no mention was made in “Argo” of the fact that the real-life Tony Mendez played by Ben Affleck in the film was Mexican-American.

The situation, Olmos argued, can only get better. »

I had to get this photograph on my Polaroid,” Kaley Cuoco said, recalling the day they filmed the pivotal season 10 finale moment. “Everyone and their mother was behind the camera for this one scene. I started crying. We were all crying. It was really cool. So many relationships have transformed and to see that be the pinnacle of the season was so cool.”

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Cast and Creators Reunite at Comic-Con

23 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The cast and creators of of “Battlestar Galactica” reunited Thursday at Comic-Con in San Diego to reminisce about the landmark Syfy drama.

Executive producers David Eick and Ronald Moore talked about their first meeting to discuss the series in 2001 — just months after the 9-11 terrorist attacks.

“It was December of ‘o1 when that subject of terrorism was in the air,” Eick told moderator Maureen Ryan of Variety. “Suddenly it took on a whole new meaning because we realized that were talking about the holocaust of a whole people.”

Battlestar Galactica” was loosely inspired by the original series of the same name that premiered in 1978.  But the reboot was very much a creature of its time, the show’s EPs said Thursday.

Asked by an audience member at Thursday’s panel how the show would be different if created today, Eick joked, “The crazy, unqualified captain.” The crowd then broke into applause.

“They let you be a filmmaker,” Ayer said. He later added that the picture, which reunites him with his “Suicide Squad” star Will Smith, “Ain’t no bull s–t, PG-13 studio movie. This is real s–t.”

Smith also praised Netflix for rolling the dice on “Bright,” a special effects-heavy picture that reportedly cost $90 million to produce. “I’m sure this will end soon, but they just give you the money and say, ‘Go make a movie,'” said Smith.

San Diego Comic-Con is a celebration of all the things that fans love about pop culture — but that being said, that kind of passion can also generate debate and controversy. It’s a natural extension of what happens when large groups of people care deeply about various media properties; while it’s not exactly celebratory to see fan favorite series confront their more problematic elements, the creators and stars of shows like “The Walking Dead,” “Westworld” and “Doctor Who” have been well-prepped to handle virtually anything that comes from meeting face-to-face with their fans.
