At San Diego Comic Con this year, Warner Bros. and NewLine gave us a sneak peek into their upcoming horror slate including THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA. La Llorona or Crying Woman is a Mexican folklore, and Hollywood is using that as the basis of the movie starring Linda Cardellini (DADDY'S HOME 2), Raymond Cruz ("Major Crimes," "Breaking Bad") and Patricia Velasquez, and produced by James Wan (THE CONJURING, AQUAMAN). The filmmakers and stars explained the legend of La Llorona to the non-Latinos in the crowd and introduced the actors.
"Magnum P.I." executive producers/showrunners Peter Lenkov and Eric Guggenheim revealed their thinking behind casting Jay Hernandez as Magnum and why they gender swapped Higgins character for the new fall show.
Season 4 will the final season for "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," and we caught up with the star and executive producer Rachel Bloom and executive producer Aline Brosh McKenna at San Diego's Comic Con to discuss the show's finale. The showrunner reveals the musical/comedy was always intended as a four season show, and it seems fitting to end on a high note.
Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in BLINDSPOTTING, a groundbreaking movie that uses spoken word to reflect on the societal ills consuming people of color specifically in Oakland where both men have roots. CineMovie sat down with Diggs and Casal to talk about blending real-life issues around a buddy comedy. Watch interview below.
A QUIET PLACE director and star John Krasinksi went for old school scares along with old school special effects. It was special effects supervisor Mark Hawker’s job to deliver the practical effects for the hit horror thriller, and he tells CineMovie how they created the corn silo and the flooded basement scene.
Evangeline Lilly steals the show in ANT-MAN AND THE WASP, but Paul Rudd's endearing storyline, however, is what drives the film. The sequel is equally as much fun as the first one, and a nice distraction from Marvel's INFINITY WAR bummer finale.
Marriage is hard enough without having to survive the apocalypse. That’s the premise behind THE DOMESTICS, written and directed by Mike P. Nelson, and starring Kate Bosworth (BLUE CRUSH,STRAW DOGS) and Tyler Hoechlin (“TeenWolf,” “Supergirl,” EVERYBODY WANTS SOME). Nelson was inspired by his own marriage in creating the character’s journey in this violent world.
Evangeline Lilly didn't need a suit in the first ANT-MAN to be a bad ass, but now she's suiting up as the Wasp in ANT-MAN AND THE WASP and she's a much better superhero than Scott's Ant-Man. Paul Rudd tells CineMovie there's a reason why Lilly's Wasp is better equiped to kick butt.
A smart, no-nonsense Latina character graces the screen in JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM, a rarity in a Hollywood blockbuster. That role went to actress Daniella Pineda who plays dinosaur veterinarian, Zia Rodriguez. The Mexican-American actress is excited to represent a positive female professional and credits FALLEN KINGDOM director J.A. Bayona in convincing others to take a chance on a relative newcomer.
John Travolta tackles the story of ruthless crime boss John Gotti, Sr in GOTTI, but the actor/producer offers a different portrayal as a devoted family man.

Valentina Patruno sat down with the famous couple to talk about their close ties to the Gotti family. Watch interview below.
