El Cantante trailer

07.06.2007

El Cantante Yahoo's posted the theatrical trailer for EL CANTANTE, a biopic in which Marc Anthony stars as legendary Salsa singer Hector Lavoe alongside his real-life spouse Jennifer Lopez who of course plays Lavoe's wife Puchi (pictured). Haven't seen the trailer myself but it's sure to include copious amounts of drug taking, a few heated, possibly violent, arguments between Lavoe and Puchi, a hell of a lot of pretty terrific Salsa, a few moments of quiet desperation and/or suicidal ideation, a lot of emotionally-charged crying and some moments of redemption followed by even more pretty terrific Salsa. If nothing else, you can rest assured that you'll get some pretty terrific Salsa. Check out the trailer over HERE. The film opens August 3rd.

Wow, looked him up W. Rosario... He was a LOSER

This guy Lavoe, wow what a piece of work. He sounds like a complete Piece Of Shite! I don't care how good he "Supposedly" was. He sounds like a loser and a complete waste of a film about him. Sorry I will not watch another film about a drug using singer who has it all then blows it and dies from AIDS. I guess you shouldn't screw everything that moves now should you! I feel kinda sorry for him but don't care to ever know anything about him.

Man W. Rosario? You need to chill out!

Yeah I still don't care to see this flick, and even if the true man was a master singer, I still have no interest in this MOVIE! This is a movie site you know! You need to seriously relax. I just stated my OPINION about a MOVIE. Sorry I don't know the man. Oh and wikipedia isn't all correct either. I imagine you probably grew up with the guy, and I haven't had the pleasure. I imagine it helps to speak spanish as well to enjoy him. I admit I'm probably too white for my own good, but I am

Your whole "Respected" Riff on me, c'mon man, what the hell is that? But when the movie comes out and it gets good reviews, I will watch it.

That looks better than I expected, but I'm still not completely sold on it. I'll check it out.

no good married flicks???

Really shelman? no good flicks with a couple starring? Ok here's some: (divided almost dow the middle in critics, but loved it) Eyes wide shut, the very underappreciated: mortal thoughts, Bull Durham and I'll stop there for now.

shelman...Maybe you should see the movie. I'm sure you would give two craps about Lavoe after you heard the guy singing. In my opinion he's the most impressive singer ever. He did it all: Salsa, merengue, pop, folk, traditional and oh by the way, he was one of the best improvisers in history.

Think of the singers you give two craps about and imagine them improvising, on tune, while rhyming over a fast beat. Now are you done thinking? How many names came up? None, right? Problems and all,

Next time, instead of coming here to just be flawed and empty in your opinion, you should try looking up, on Wikipedia or whatever, any info you need. Then, be opinionated and you can be respected.

OHHH...Crapola!

I know this is based on a true story and all, but this guy was supposed to be some big latin star in the 70's and I have never heard of him! I guess maybe I would need to be latino to know him or something, but I really couldn't give two craps about him or this crappy looking movie. Why the hell do married stars (I use that term loosely) think they should act together? I can't think of even one good film where they made a good film. Brad & Angelina don't count either people. "Mr. and Mrs.

"Mr. and Mrs. Smith" totally over-rated, and they weren't married then.

Trailer #2?

My guess is you are expecting a second trailer to appear in Yahoo! Movies later today (as the theatrical trailer was added back in April). Am I right?
