Salma Hayek, Alexander Skarsgård and Jesse Eisenberg are the stars of The Hummingbird Project, a Kim Nguyen written / directed drama about two high-frequency traders facing off with their former boss.
The prize available is serious money in a fibre-optic cable deal…
I’m in for the showdown, because I love Hayek, I want to see Eisenberg in what looks like a more crazed version of his role as Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network (2010). And lastly, I have to see more of Skarsgård’s character running.
Michael Mando, Johan Heldenbergh, Ayisha Issa, Sarah Goldberg and Kwasi Songui also star.
Starring Salma HayekEugenio Derbez and Rob Lowe, How To Be Latin Lover is a movie I watched because I adore Salma Hayek, I was curious about Eugenio Derbez and the trailer amused me.
How To Be A Latin Lover centres around Derbez’s character – Maximo; a man who’s forged a career out of seducing rich older women. Unfortunately for him, however, his 25 year marriage just ended and with nowhere else to go, he finds himself living with his estranged sister.
Quite early in the movie, I realised precisely how the story was going to go. A lot of what I realised could have been guessed during the trailer; only, I was far too busy being amused. I stayed with the movie until the end because of the reasons I already mentioned – but additionally, I happened to be in the mood for a film that didn’t require too much from me. The often silly humour was OK. Though, the ending did seem to come about quite abruptly – and in a way I wasn’t fully expecting. Overall, I can say I regret nothing because I knew what I’d signed up for. My love of Hayek remains and Derbez… He’s OK.
I can’t say that I picture myself telling people ‘you simply must see this,’ but I do see myself at some point in the future, referencing the scene in the trailer with the shoe dye and the pool.
I am a big Salma Hayek fan and I just couldn’t be happier to see her in a role that looks as great as the one of Beatriz in Beatriz At Dinner. Also starring Connie Britton, Chloë Sevigny, John Lithgow and Jay Duplass, Hayek’s Beatriz is a holistic medicine practitioner who attends a wealthy client’s dinner party after her car breaks down. And so begins very thought provoking dialogue…
Directed by Miguel Arteta, this great trailer has me very impatient to take in all of writer Mike White’s words.
In The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Ryan Reynolds is the latter and Samuel L. Jackson, the former. The bodyguard and hitman are not quite getting along. Still they must learn to work together because one of them has to testify at the International Court of Justice…
I don’t know if Reynolds and Jackson have been in a movie together before, but I’m certainly a fan of their chemistry. I’m also getting something of a The Other Guys (2010) vibe – and I’m sure that’s a good thing.
