Mexican star Gonzalo Vega, Karla Souza and director Gary Alazraki bring their Mexican hit, NOSOTROS LOS NOBLES to American cinemas and they’re talking to us about the feel-good Spanish comedy that feels like a Hollywood movie.
Spanish-language comedy NOSOTROS LOS NOBLES (We are the Nobles) became Mexico's highest-grossing film of all time earlier this year, surpassing the previous record holder, 2002's El Crimen del Amaro" starring Gael Garcia Bernal. The film out-grossed some of the year’s biggest Hollywood releases, including Man of Steel, Oz The Great and Powerful, World War Z, The Wolverine, Pacific Rim, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, among other Hollywood box office blockbusters.
NOSOTROS LOS NOBLES centers around three spoiled rich kids who are cut off from their family fortune and forced to work for the first time, leading to hilarious and awkward situations. Up and coming Mexican director who studied at USC watched Arrested Development and Hollywood 80s movies for inspiration for the comedy, while actress Karla Souza looked to Goldie Hawn’s spoiled rich girl role in Overboard for playing someone whose actions are despicable, yet likeable.
Gonzalo Vega, a major player in Mexican film and television, tells CineMovie he could relate to the film as a father and his youngest child reminds him of one of his on-screen son, Javi.
NOSOTROS LOS NOBLES will launch in some of AMC’s theaters in the country such as Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco/San Jose, Phoenix, San Diego, Las Vegas, and Charlotte. The film will play in Spanish with English subtitles when it opens in select AMC theaters Friday, November 1, 2013.
