The Green Ghost Goes Full Superhero in New Poster

Published

on

In true superhero style, the poster for The Green Ghost has all the characters standing in dramatic poses and looking serious. What else would you expect from the poster for a superhero flick?

The film follows the eponymous Green Ghost, who must prevent the Aztec Apocalypse, and stars Charles Clarke, Kuno Becker from the Goal movies, Marko Zaror, and the ever reliable Danny Trejo. Michael D. Olmos directs.

The Green Ghost had some footage screened at Fantastic Fest but does not yet have a release date.

Synopsis:
In order to help save the world from an Aztec Apocalypse, a gringo from the barrio, raised by an elite group of covert Mexican warriors, has to overcome self-doubt, transforming into a superhero, The GREEN GHOST. As an orphan, in the care of a careless stepmother, Charlie longed to belong to someone. And for a while he did, his Nana. Nana raised Charlie, along with her own grandson, Marco, teaching them how to make tortillas and speak Spanish. But cooking wasn’t the only thing Nana was good at. She and Marco had a secret life, a duty to protect powerful emeralds that upon contact endow superhuman abilities.

Chasing after the emeralds is Lechusa, the fabled bruja (witch) and servant to the Aztec ruler, Montezuma. If Lechusa can assemble the emeralds, she will have the power to bring back Montezuma, ending the world as we know it. Charlie, on accident, was endowed with these powers, and after he used them to fight a neighborhood bully, it became clear that in order to protect Charlie, Nana and Marco had to leave him. Charlie was too young to understand their sacrifice, but the heartbreak of abandonment was tangible.

Charlie grows up. He goes into business for himself, creating an empire of successful car dealerships but never overcoming a deep sense of self-doubt and fear of abandonment. At the same time, a world-renowned anthropologist, whose career had been spent studying an emerald in his possession, passes away, leaving the emerald and research lab to his wayward son. This creates the perfect opportunity for Lechusa to slide in, gaining access not just to the emerald but to the son and the powers he processes. A power so strong, Charlie is put in real danger. He is now realizing that what he thought was abandonment was really sacrifice. He is called to fight but is so far from ready, he has to be teleported all over the globe to gain the skills necessary to stop Lechusa from bringing back Montezuma and save the world. But can Charlie find the power to overcome how everyone else sees him and transform himself from just a gringo to The Green Ghost?

Even Sarah Connor Hated TERMINATOR: GENISYS

Published

on

I think it’s safe to say there aren’t many people out there that were fans of Terminator: Genisys. The film was kind of a major mess and it looks like life on the set was as well.

That film’s new Sarah Connor, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) was recently speaking with Vanity Fair about some other crap and then the conversation swung around to the failed reboot of the Terminator series. And Clarke had some interesting things to say…

First, she told the magazine how she was “relieved” when the film bombed at the box-office so she didn’t have to sign up for further sequels. And then Clarke says she watched frequent Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor “get eaten and chewed up on Terminator. He was not the director I remembered. He didn’t have a good time. No one had a good time.”

Damn girl, tell it like it is! Got to respect the woman for not holding back and sugarcoating things under the blanket of “creative differences.” Hell, maybe Clarke will be able to do the same regarding all the drama surrounding that new Lando: A Star Wars Story movie one day.

What did you think of the film? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Synopsis:

When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance against Skynet, sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect his mother, Sarah (Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator assassin, an unexpected turn of events creates an altered timeline. Instead of a scared waitress, Sarah is a skilled fighter and has a Terminator guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger) by her side. Faced with unlikely allies and dangerous new enemies, Reese sets out on an unexpected new mission: reset the future.

Idris Elba Directs and Stars in Netflix’s HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME

Published

Like many of you out there, Idris Elba is one of my favorite actors working today. And it is with this in mind that I’m excited by today’s news that says Elba will be tackling The Hunchback of Notre Dame for Netflix.

THR reports that Elba will not only star in the film, but he will be directing and producing the music described as a “sonic and musical experience” as well. That’s a lot of hats there, Gunslinger.

For those who might be unaware, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is an 1831 novel by Victor Hugo that follows Quasimodo, a hunchback, who falls in love with the Gypsy Esmeralda. Michael Mitnick (The Current War, The Giver) will write the modern-day retelling with Fred Berger (La La Land) and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Midnight Special) producing along with Elba and Ana Garanito.
