‘Club de Cuervos’ Star-ep Luis Gerardo Méndez, A Breakout In ‘Murder Mystery’, Inks With Wme

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Wme has signed Luis Gerardo Méndez, who is on the rise after starring in and executive producing Netflix’s first Spanish-language original series Club de Cuervos and recently broke out on the streamer’s Adam Sandler-Jennifer Aniston movie Murder Mystery.

The move comes as Méndez shoots the Focus Features film Half Brothers. The comedy, which he developed with co-writers Eduardo Cisneros, Jason Shuman and director Luke Greenfield, revolves around two very different half-brothers (Méndez and Connor Del Rio) forced on a road trip together masterminded by their ailing father, tracing the path their dad took as an immigrant from Mexico to the U.S.

Méndez also will appear in Sony’s Charlie’s Angels reboot which hits theaters November 15. His previous film credits in Mexico include the Netflix boxing drama Bayoneta and the Warner Bros comedy The Noble Family, which grossed $26 million there in 2013. He also co-starred in the 2014 biographical film Cantinflas,

One To Watch: Mexican Movie Star Luis Gerardo Méndez Wants To Tell Stories Of Home, Sets Focus Features Vehicle ‘Half Brothers’
Exclusive: After rising to stardom in Mexico, Luis Gerardo Méndez is transitioning to Hollywood with a determination to tell stories of his home country that go beyond the stereotypical images that play out in cartel films or reflect polarizing news coverage and political rhetoric involving immigration.

Méndez makes his English-language debut in the Jennifer Aniston-Adam Sandler comic whodunit Murder Mystery which Netflix releases Friday, this after starring in and exec producing for four seasons Netflix’s first-ever-Spanish-language original series Club de Cuervos, the streaming service’s first original production in Mexico.

Unfriended: Dark Web – Review

Okay, so last Friday was the thirteenth, but that doesn’t stop the studios from releasing a new horror/thriller into the blockbuster-heavy Summer movie marketplace. Well the film itself is new, but it’s a follow-up to a modest hit from way back in 2015. So, is this set in a creepy old castle, or in a decaying and crumbling moldy mansion? No, those settings are passe and a tad tame for modern scary stories and their fans. The really terrifying backdrops aren’t “Camp Crystal Lake” or even the “House on Haunted Hill”. Here’s a hint: you’re there at this moment. Of course, the new hang-out for goons and monsters is the internet. It’s not a huge stretch to think of a web portal as a long hallway leading to a dungeon with tabs and ads popping up like zombies and ghouls. In this sequel (in

Unfriended: Dark Web Review

Stephen Susco’s Unfriended: Dark Web – quite spectacularly – clears its cache of any historical connections to Leo Gabriadze’s original Unfriended. Gone is Laura Barns, swapped out for Dark Web “realities” and glitch mob superhackers who emerge from the world wide web’s seediest reaches. Once again Skype brings people together, and once again they’re hunted one by one while their webcams record it all. Familiar? Yes. Executed with equal menace? Not for a millisecond. Ghost Barns’ revenge is blindly ignored and doubled-back on, as this keyboard Game Night abomination can’t even hold a candle to the Blumhouse films of 2018 – the same year Truth Or Dare was released.

Our main voyeuristic focus is Matias (Colin Woodell), a frustrated boyfriend who “finds” his new laptop in a lost and found bin. He’s simultaneously trying to win back girlfriend Amaya (Stephanie Nogueras) and enjoy an online hang session with geographically spaced friends,

‘Unfriended: Dark Web’ Film Review: Horror Sequel Tosses Together Cache of Clichés

  • The Wrap
‘Unfriended: Dark Web’ Film Review: Horror Sequel Tosses Together Cache of Clichés
There’s a glimmer of a good idea in “Unfriended: Dark Web.” Unfortunately, it’s already been exploited, and to better effect, in 2015’s squirmily relatable “Unfriended.”

The latter cost a million bucks to make and took in $64 million, so you can see why horror shingle Blumhouse wanted to revisit the well. But this time, the bucket’s pretty dry.

The retread jettisons sociological insight for a grim and generally joyless journey that feels entirely obligatory. Where the first film tapped into the Internet’s unavoidable underbelly — cyberbullies, trolls, obsessive Fomo — the second never settles on a persuasive Pov.

Movie Review – Unfriended: Dark Web (2018)

Unfriended: Dark Web, 2018.

Written and Directed by Stephen Susco.

Starring Colin Woodell, Stephanie Nogueras, Betty Gabriel, Rebecca Rittenhouse, Andrew Lees, Chelsea Alden, Ashton Smiley, Savira Windyani, Connor Del Rio, and Douglas Tait.

Synopsis:

A teen comes into possession of a new laptop and soon discovers that the previous owner is not only watching him, but will also do anything to get it back.

Substituting for beyond the grave supernatural revenge is a refreshing and more grounded approach to horror, as Unfriended: Dark Web sticks with the ambitious concept of telling a story entirely through computer screens while incorporating serious dangers of the Internet, such as hacking, specifically speaking about doxxing and DDoS attacks. If there’s one thing I hope anyone takes away from this atrocious, vile, mean-spirited, god-awful exercise in terror, it’s that some of what is being depicted is actually real. There are programs that can automatically hack secure passwords,

New Trailer For the Horror Thriller Unfriended: Dark Web Brings The Terror

Another trailer has been released for the the upcoming horror thriller Unfriended: Dark Web, which is kind of a standalone sequel to the 2014 film Unfriended. I initially rolled my eyes at this sequel but the story is does interest me as it unfolds in real time as we witness a group of friends fall deep down the dark deep rabbit hole of the dark web and are terrorized by someone on the other end. On top of that, I've been hearing great things about the movie, and there's quote in the trailer that says it's "The Most Evil Film That BlumHouse Has Ever Made,"  so maybe it will actually be good. I'll give it a shot.

Creepy Teaser Trailer For Unfriended: Dark Web Boots Online

Since its founding in the year 2000, Blumhouse Productions has undoubtedly grown and evolved into one of Hollywood’s biggest horror exports, with titles ranging from Truth or Dare to Split, Jordan Peele’s Get Out to Happy Death Day.

Its latest release hails from producer Timur Bekmambetov, and it’s about to make you rethink your digital life on the world wide web. We are, of course, referring to Unfriended: Dark Web, the sinister tech thriller that takes the core premise of its 2014 predecessor and spins it out in an entirely new and exciting direction, all of which unfolds in real-time across a series of blinking computer screens – not unlike Bekmambetov’s Profile from earlier in the year.

And so, ahead of the film’s arrival next week, Blumhouse has debuted a suitably creepy teaser trailer in which a group of 20-somethings uncover what appears to be an underground human trafficking ring,

Unfriended: Dark Web Trailer Reveals Twisted, Surprise Sequel

Unfriended: Dark Web Trailer Reveals Twisted, Surprise Sequel
The first trailer for Unfriended: Dark Web is here. Blumhouse found themselves a sneaky hit in 2015 with the first Unfriended, which was pretty inventive within the realm of found footage horror, centering entirely on a webcam chat between friends. Basically, the entire movie takes place on a laptop screen. Now, the studio has released a trailer for the surprise sequel, which is set to be released in just over a month on July 20.

Blumhouse held a couple of secret screenings for the movie during this year's SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. They had produced the Unfriended sequel in secret and dropped it like a bomb on some unsuspecting audiences during the festival. I happened to catch the movie during my coverage of the event this year and the trailer does a very good job of encapsulating what one can expect from the Unfriended: Dark Web. It's a brutal, dark and genuinely horrific undertaking.

Scary First Trailer for Computer Horror Sequel 'Unfriended: Dark Web'

"That looked way too real..." Universal has released a trailer for horror sequel Unfriended: Dark Web, produced by Blumhouse, the follow-up to the computer screen horror movie Unfriended from 2014. Being marketed as "​the most terrifying horror yet", the film unfolds in real-time on computer screens, following a guy and his friends who discover something nefarious on his new computer. He "discovers that the previous owner is not only watching him, but will also do anything to get it back." The cast includes Betty Gabriel, Andrew Lees, Colin Woodell, Rebecca Rittenhouse, Connor Del Rio, Chelsea Alden, Savira Windyani, and Stephanie Nogueras. I much prefer the computer screen film Searching over this. They try so hard to make it horrific that it all comes across phony. If you're into this kind of horror, check it out.
