Did you know that the first alien and extraterrestrial movie in history was ‘Le Voyage dans la Lune’ (‘Journey to the Moon’ in its Spanish translation), which was recorded in black and white, completely silent, in the year 1902
Since then, dozens of films have dealt with this subgenre of science fiction cinema, among which the very complete ‘Alien’ saga stands out, since it began in 1979 a total of 8 parts have been released.
And, in addition, we have continued to witness the launch of series dedicated to this theme, with great success, as would be the case of ‘The X Files’, ‘Taken – Abducted’ or ‘V: The Visitors’, in addition to somewhat more humorous versions such as ‘ALF’ or ‘Things from Martians’.
We have recently learned that Robert Rodriguez, film director of successful films such as ‘El Mariachi’, ‘Desperado’, ‘Predators’ or ‘Spy Kids’, among others, has a new project on his hands after allying with Netflix , the popular American streaming company.
Synopsis of ‘We Can Be Heroes’
Specifically, it would be ‘We Can Be Heroes’, an alien movie that would be aimed at children , which will star the Indian actress and singer Priyanka Chopra Jonas(‘Baywatch’, ‘Isn’t it romantic
‘ or the series ‘Quantico’).
As we have known, the film will be written and directed by the Texan director, and in it we will see a series of alien invaders who kidnap the main superheroes of the Earth , which means that a group of children will have to unite in order to save both their own parents and the world.
We have also learned who will join Priyanka Chopra in the cast. And it will also have the presence of actors of recognized prestige and experience such as Christian Slater(‘The name of the rose’, ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’ or ‘King Cobra’), YaYa Gosselin (‘The Purge’), Akira Akbar (‘Captain Marvel’) and Pedro Pascal (‘Narcos’, ‘Hidden destiny’ or ‘Wonder Woman 1984’).
Christian Slater will also participate in the new Robert Rodriguez movie for Netflix | Warner Bros. Pictures
The film is currently in the production phase, which ultimately means that it is in the process of being created. In this way, it is still quite early to know an approximate release date, although it is clear that we could see it on Netflix sometime next year (2020).
In the meantime, we are pleased to learn that other actors such as Adriana Barraza, Christopher McDonald, Andrew Diaz, Andy Walken, Hala Finley, Boyd Holdbrook, Lotus Blossom, Lyon Daniels, Nathan Blair, Vivien Lyra Blair, Isaiah Russell- Bailey and Sung Kang, among others.
Anyway, if you’re as passionate about Rodriguez’s work as we are, we can remind you that the last thing we’ve seen of Rodriguez is ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ , which has grossed nearly $400 million worldwide in box office, and that also has the participation of the award-winning James Cameron.
It tells the story of Alita, a human-like robot who cannot remember how she got to the place where the damaged cyborgs are stored.
