Emily Blunt and Benicio del Toro to star in #NMFilm Sicario

Posted by on April 10, 2014 | One comment

Emily Blunt Benicio del toro starring in Sicaro will film in New Mexico

Last year Denis Villeneuve became a red hot commodity with the runaway success of his Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal dramatic thriller, Prisoners, which led Alcon Entertainment to seal a two year deal with the French-Candian writer/director.

The very latest product of that partnership is set to land in New Mexico in just a matter of months. A crime thriller, titled Sicario is slated for production in NM this June.

Earlier this month it was revealed that Villeneauve’s leading lady in the “tense Mexican border crime-drama”, will be Emily Blunt, who starred in the New Mexico film, Sunshine Cleaners back in 2008.

Blunt will play a police officer in the Southwest who crosses the border with a group of mercenaries to track down a dangerous drug lord (hint, not Walter White). The film is already getting a lot of early buzz due to Villeneauve’s attachment and for the gritty premise being heroine driven.

Alcon has been here before with 2010’s post-apocalyptic action film, The Book of Eli and the brand new Johnny Depp sci-fi/drama Transcendence.

And even before production is underway on Sicario there are rumblings all over the web, already looking forward to Villeneauve’s follow-up picture, The Story of Your Life, another sci-fi drama, this time led by Amy Adams, Blundt’s co-star in Sunshine.

How’s that for an #NMFilm string!

Adopted Son Johnny Depp to film Transcendence in New Mexico

In a far out blind item, we were recently hinting at rumblings that the biggest of biggies by way of global superstars, was possibly en route BACK to New Mexico!

Now that reports are rolling into the blogosphere that Johnny Depp’s next feature film is in fact on the rails, rapidly headed toward meeting production dates for a Spring 2014 release date, we ~can tell you – DEPP IS HEADED BACK TO NEW MEXICO!

Transcendence (which I will now learn how to spell) is set to co-star NMFilmer Paul Bettany, who starred in the 2009 New Mexico film Legion. Dark Knight cinematographer Wally Pfister will make his directorial debut with the film, which Collider reports to be about “a scientist whose brain gets uploaded into a supercomputer with the aim of creating the world’s first machine that can think for itself”.

Female leads currently being bandied about include NMFilm star Emily Blunt (Sunshine Cleaning), Rooney Mara, and Rebecca Hall.

Stay tuned…Local casting deets to follow!

Beyond Ambience

UPDATE 9/6/11: TONIGHT at the The After After Party, the greatest entertainment showcase in New Mexico, enjoy the good vibrations of Ambient Trash! Get in there – it’s still FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE and thar’s a cash bar!!! Check out the rest of the line-up, location & time here.

UPDATE 8/4/11: ONE NIGHT ONLY! Catch ’em if you can…This Sat. night Ambient Trash at Low Spirits in Albuquerque, NM. Click it!

There’s dinner music, there’s knockin’ boots music and then there’s the all important music in-between…the music to tune the fork to if you will.

I’m not one to claim to have the smarts, book or otherwise, but intuition I got and my intuition about Ambient Trash was that the live show would be an EXPERIENCE and I was so happily right!

Can you spell Crescendo? ‘Cause I can’t but I can feel it and that’s what you’ll do at an Ambient show at the wuthering height of each and every song (and mayhaps if you have a good enough audio system in house ou auto – CDs on sale NOW).

Of the many events we’re fortunate enough to be invited to attend, it’s few and far between that we at OHI are able to attend IRL, and of those few we’re super fortunate to almost always land whale for whale.

This one was a doozy! If you might be interested in achieving the feel of safely sitting on some rhythmic train trax (à la Emily Blunt in NM’s Own Sunshine Cleaning), and seeing some original music performed by musicians who are clearly in it for the love of the game you MUST catch a ride on the Ambient Trash train!

Even the official band wife, who’s surely heard every tune, strum and beat hundreds of times over got her ROCK ON in the audience!

So, if and when you or anyone eh…hmm you know is in need of lil’ hair blowing, bone rattling ROCK tunage, get your LIVE Ambient Trash experience on!

In case you’re not catching my drift let Jackie esplain at the 3:20 mark…
