Antonio Banderas movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, including ‘The Mask of Zorro,’ ‘Evita,’ ‘Philadelphia’
This year Antonio Banderas could win his first Emmy for “Genius: Picasso.” He stars in the second season of NatGeo’s anthology series as famed Spanish surrealist painter Pablo Picasso. Banderas previously competed for Best Movie/Mini Actor for “And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself” in 2004. But of course, most of Banderas’ best known work has been in film, not television. In honor of his latest small-screen achievement, let’s take a look back at some of his best big-screen performances. Tour through our photo gallery above of Banderas’ 12 greatest films, ranked from worst to best.

Antonio Banderas to Star as Pablo Picasso in ‘Genius’ Season 2 at Nat Geo
Antonio Banderas has signed on to star as Pablo Picasso in National Geographic’s “Genius” Season 2, Variety has learned.

The artistic career of Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Crispín Crispiniano María Remedios de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz Picasso spanned more than 80 years. His work challenged and reinvented the world’s perceptions of art and creativity. The prolific artist generated an estimated 50,000 works, among the most notable being “The Old Guitarist” from his Blue Period, now on display at the Art Institute of Chicago; “Guernica,” inspired by the Nazi bombing of a small Spanish town of the same name, recently displayed at the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid; and “Les Demoiselles D’Avignon,” now on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

From Almodóvar’s parade to the Security of Hollywood: Antonio Banderas’ cinematic journey

Author: Jon Lyus

Antonio Banderas is one of the more recognisable faces (and certainly one of the most recognisable voices) in Hollywood. His presence in front of the camera is tangible, and the variety of roles he enjoys now is testament to a versatility few could have expected of the man who came to Tinsel Town barely speaking a word of English.

He has been a masked legend (twice, one furry – the other not so), played with another kind of mask (horrifcally so – see the final note), appeared opposite the likes of Sir Anthony Hopkins, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie and Spongebob Squarepants. He’s done it all, and now a new film of his arrives on DVD this week.

Trailer Watch: Salma Hayek Takes on a Trump-Like Figure in “Beatriz at Dinner”

Beatriz at Dinner

If you find dinner parties awkward, prepare to cringe your way through a new trailer for Salma Hayek-starrer “Beatriz at Dinner.” Beatriz (Hayek) has way more to deal with than dinner companions droning on about their boring jobs or chewing with their mouths open. The party escalates into an all-out war.

“At an elegant dinner party in a swanky hilltop home, conversation between a soft-spoken holistic healer and a hard-nosed businessman explodes into a bitter clash of cultures,” the film’s synopsis details.

The spot shows how Beatriz wasn’t initially invited to the party. She came to practice on the host (Connie Britton, “Nashville”) before the festivities kicked off and car trouble prevented her from leaving.

At the dinner table, Beatriz begins a story: “When I first came to the United States a long time ago — .” She’s interrupted mid-sentence by the wildly obnoxious billionaire, Doug (John Lithgow), who asks, “Did you come legally?”

Doug values profit over people and the future of the environment. “The world is dying,” Beatriz says. Unfazed and unimpressed, a smirking Doug responds, “Elephants are dying, bees are dying.” Doug will undoubtedly earn comparisons to another privileged businessman who denies climate change and is suspicious of — and hostile towards — immigrants.

Hayek received an Oscar nomination in 2003 for her role in “Frida,” Julie Taymor’s Frida Kahlo biopic. “Septembers of Shiraz,” “30 Rock,” and “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” are among her other credits.

Beatriz at Dinner” made its world premiere at Sundance in January. The ensemble cast includes Chloë Sevigny (“Bloodline”) and Amy Landecker (“Transparent”). Directed by Miguel Arteta (“The Good Girl”), “Beatriz at Dinner” hits theaters June 9.

Wonder Woman Director Patty Jenkins On Why She Prefers Film Over Digital

Film or digital? This is a conversation that has permeated movie geeks for the past 15 or so years. Ever since the early 2000s when Robert Rodriguez shot Once Upon a Time in Mexico on film, and when George Lucas started pioneering the format, the debate has taken over. Which is better, and can anyone really tell the difference? Time has seen digital quickly take over the landscape, with everything from indie flicks to big Marvel Studios blockbusters shooting digitally. From a process standpoint, it tends to be a lot faster, and from a financial standpoint, a bit cheaper. And when 95 percent of the audience can’t tell the difference, why even bother going to film, right?

Filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan, however, have been fighting the good fight, doing what they can to ensure that film survives in today’s growing digital landscape. Nowadays, it seems like it
