Terry Gilliam’s Man Who Killed Don Quixote Trailer Arrives After 20 Years

 

After years and years of waiting, the trailer for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is here to prove that the movie may finally be seen by the world. Director Terry Gilliam has been trying to get this movie made for almost two decades, only to fail time and again. Roadblocks, production stops, rotating cast members. Every problem imaginable has plagued this project. However, we now finally have the first trailer for the movie, which not only gives us our first look at what’s in store, but assures us that The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has actually been shot and is very real.

The trailer is an international trailer and is very much a teaser. It sets up the general beats of the movie and gives us a look at the cast and various settings. But beyond that, it doesn’t give us the best sense of what The Man Who Killed Don Quixote really is. Especially if you’re coming at this knowing nothing about the source material or the long, troubled road to getting this movie made. The most important thing this trailer does is signify that the movie has moved into the marketing phase, at least to some degree. With this movie, you can never be sure, but now more than ever, it looks like we’re finally going to get to see it.

In The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, an advertising executive jumps back and forth in time between 21st century London and 17th century La Mancha, where Don Quixote mistakes him for Sancho Panza. The movie wrapped production nearly a year ago and things have been a little quiet ever since. Here’s what director Terry Gilliam had to say about the character of Don Quixote, via the official website for the movie.

“Don Quixote is a dreamer, an idealist and a romantic, determined not to accept the limitations of reality, marching on regardless of setbacks, as we have done. We’ve been at it so long that the idea of actually finishing shooting this ‘clandestine’ film, is pretty surreal. Any sensible person would have given up years ago but sometimes pig-headed dreamers win in the end, so thank you to all of the ill paid fantasists and believers who have joined to make this longstanding dream a reality!”

Terry Gilliam has been trying to adapt Miguel de Cervantes y Saavedra’s Don Quixote novel since the 90s. At various points, actors like Johnny Depp had been attached. The movie’s troubles were chronicled in the 2002 documentary Lost in La Mancha, which is the closest The Man Who Killed Don Quixote ever came to the big screen.

The cast for the movie includes Jonathan Pryce, Adam Driver, Olga Kurylenko, Stellan Skarsgård and Jordi Mollà. There were plans for a world premiere at Cannes this year, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to be happening. So still, we wait. Amazon Studios will be distributing the movie, which doesn’t have a release date yet. Be sure to check out the first trailer for Amazon production The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

‘Smallville’ Actress Allison Mack Arrested in Alleged Cult Sex Trafficking

Well today just got a little weird. Maybe the world is crumbing? President Trump is making headlines every day for his dealing’s with Russia, Avicii died earlier this morning, and now ‘Smallville’ actress Allison Mack was just arrested for sex trafficking!

Allison Mack was arraigned Friday afternoon in connection with a case that involved an alleged cult leader involved with sex trafficking!

The ‘Smallville’ actress, along with NXIVM cult leader Keith Raniere, also known as “Vanguard (no relation to ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy,)” was charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York.

“As alleged in the indictment, Allison Mack recruited women to join what was purported to be a female mentorship group that was, in fact, created and led by Keith Raniere,” United States Attorney Richard P. Donoghue revealed in a statement released Friday afternoon. “The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants’ benefit.”

Avicii, International Popstar, Dead at 28

 

Avicii, DJ Producer and international pop star, is dead at the young age of 28.

Earlier today the music industry was sent shock waves as it was revealed that one of the most successful and famous EDM star’s Avicii had died at only 28 years of age.

Avicii was a Grammy-nominated electric dance DJ who sold out more venues than an other EDM DJ to date. “Wake Me Up,” one of Avicii’s most successful songs was a multi-platinum success that peaked at number four on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

His death comes just days after being nominated for a 2018 Billboard Music award for his dance/electric EP “Avicii (01).”

In 2016, Avicii retired from making music, largely in part to a drug in fueled lifestyle that he had grown accustomed to on the EDM circuit.

Avicii would battle his demons, and soon over come them during his time away from the industry (mostly a drinking problem.)

Last year Avicci posted a message on his website announcing his return to the music industry. “The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys. It is the beginning of something new.”

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” a statement from Avicii’s rep to Life and Fame earlier today reads.

“He was found dead in Muscat, Oman, this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

Watch the Men arrested at Starbucks speak out

Unless you have been living under a rock, you already know that Starbucks has been under a nationwide outcry following an incident in Philadelphia where two African-American’s were wrongfully kicked out of a Starbucks store and arrested.

The short story goes like this: Two African American men (Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson) where waiting inside of a Starbucks for their friend. The manager asked them to leave or he would call the cops since the two men didn’t purchase anything (they were considered to be loitering,) and these two men were arrested.

The story instantly made national news and Starbucks became racist enemy number one. Now Starbucks in an attempt to save its image, has decided that it will close down all of its location next month (for only a few hours) in order to provide racial bias training to its employees.

The men who were arrested during this incident at Starbucks are finally speaking out about exactly what happen in the Philadelphia Starbucks that day and what they hope the rest of the world can learn from this situation.
