After playing Hawkeye’s wife, Linda Cardellini takes on ‘La Llorona’

Most recently seen in “Avengers: Endgame” as the wife of Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Linda Cardellini now stars in New Line Cinema’s “The Curse of La Llorona.” Produced by James Wan, the film brings the iconic Latin American legend to terrifying life in an original horror film. 

Cardellini plays Anna Tate Garcia, a social worker and widowed single mom, who has never been exposed to the legend of La Llorona that’s about to descend on her family.

When she was approached for the role, Linda Cardellini says she couldn’t resist the complex hero at the heart of the film.  “When I read the script, I loved that it was not about being someone’s wife or being someone’s sister.  It’s really about this woman who is fighting the odds to keep her family together, and the lengths she’s willing to go to protect her children.  I loved that we experience this story through her eyes.  And, to be honest, the idea of being in a full-on horror movie was also kind of exciting,” she adds with a laugh.

A longtime fan of her work, James Wan was thrilled when Cardellini took the leap.  “Linda is so talented and such a presence onscreen and yet when I see her movies, I always forget that I’m watching Linda because she just disappears into her characters.  So we’re really fortunate to have her come and play with us in this movie.”

“Whether or not you believe, there’s something about this story that gets under your skin,” says Cardellini, “No matter who you are or what stage of life you’re in when it finds you, because everyone has a mother, everyone has been a child and people have kids of their own.”

“Linda is an awesome performer, and so natural with our kid actors, but when those kids are threatened, and you see her maternal instincts kick in from this raw, real, powerful place…man, that was impressive,” director Michael Chaves says.  

But she won’t get them without a fight.  “As hard as it is to accept,” says Cardellini, “and as terrifying as it is for her to face, Anna can no longer deny that a dark presence is stalking her children, and she’s going to have to stand alone against it to keep them safe.  The Church can’t help her; she knows the police won’t believe her.  In the face of this great danger, she has to reach in and be stronger than she ever imagined herself to be – or lose her kids forever.”

Cardellini adds, “There are some moments in the film that for me, as a parent, are hard to watch.”  But the adrenaline rush alone is worth the risk.  “If you like to be scared, I think this movie is going to be crazy fun, because once it starts scaring you, it doesn’t let up – all the way to the end,” she concludes.

In Philippine cinemas May 1st, “The Curse of La Llorona” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a WarnerMedia Company.#LaLlorona

About “The Curse of La Llorona”

From New Line Cinema and producer James Wan, “The Curse of La Llorona” brings the iconic Latin American legend to terrifying life in an original horror film, marking the feature directorial debut of Michael Chaves, the innovative filmmaker behind the award-winning short “The Maiden.”   

In 1970s Los Angeles, La Llorona is stalking the night—and the children.  Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm.  Their only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly wrath may be a disillusioned priest and the mysticism he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide.  

Produced by James Wan (“Aquaman”), Gary Dauberman (screenwriter “IT” and “Annabelle” franchises) and Emile Gladstone (“Army of One”), “The Curse of La Llorona” stars Linda Cardellini (the Oscar-winning “Green Book,” Netflix’s “Bloodline”), Raymond Cruz (TV’s “Breaking Bad,” “Training Day”) and Patricia Velasquez (TV’s “Arrested Development,” “The Mummy” films), along with Marisol Ramirez (TV’s “NCIS: Los Angeles”), Sean Patrick Thomas (the “Barbershop” films, “Halloween: Resurrection”), Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen (“Selfless”) and newcomer Roman Christou.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ (spoiler-free) review: Marvel’s gratifying finale

‘Avengers: Endgame’ brings pride and joy to the fans who have invested in the MCU franchise, 11 years and 21 movies ago.

After the “snappening” in Infinity War, audiences, myself included, are left with our jaws on the floor as the Mad Titan Thanos (Josh Brolin) wipes half of the living creatures in the universe. It’s a superhero film where the supervillain wins at the end – it’s far from the crowd-pleasing ending expected, yet it’s something fresh that we can definitely dig. Serving as the culmination to Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3, Avengers: Endgame assembles the surviving heroes one last time to avenge the fallen. The trailers, however, drop very minimal hints. What’s exactly going on in this solid 3-hour film? Are the ‘vanished’ really dead or are they just inside the soul stone? Will time travel through quantum realm be the means to undo their demise? I can neither confirm nor deny these fan speculations in this discussion. One thing I can guarantee for sure, this groundbreaking film exceeds the hype. It even retroactively deepens our love for the previous films. If this isn’t perfection, then I can’t even imagine how to make a more gratifying version than this.

The gang is back. (Half of them anyway). Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd and Scarlett Johansson in ‘Avengers: Endgame.’

Whereas the main attraction of Infinity War is its earned fan service spectacle, Endgame surprises as the most emotional and most contemplative MCU film to date. There’s plenty of fuel here – loss, grief and guilt are the prime ones to motivate our core six Avengers. Y’all should know them by now but since this will be their swan songs, I’d mention them anyway. There’s genius inventor Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), super-soldier Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans), rage monster Bruce Banner/Hulk, god of thunder Thor (Chris Hemsworth), deadly assassin Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and a vengeful marksman Clint Barton/Hawkeye returning from his absence in Infinity War. Rounding up the troop are Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Rhodey/War Machine (Don Cheadle), Rocket Racoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Nebula (Karen Gillan), and newly-minted Avenger, Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely once again deserve high merits for successfully juggling an overwhelming amount of characters, with the OG crew getting the lion’s share of show-stopping moments.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) drifts into space.

The character and ensemble work is better than expected, with every A-lister bringing their A-games to the table. Downey’s subdued grief and reliable cocky screen presence supplies much melancholy and joy. Evans finally gets to play with Cap’s lifetime of regrets from being frozen in ice several years ago. Ruffalo sells both the neurotic scientist and the rampaging Hulk. Hemsworth feels loose and natural as a self-deprecating comic god. Johansson lends an unexpected emotional weight to the film and Renner has so much soulfulness in his eyes. What most trailers don’t show is how much time is devoted to make these characters appeal as more than a team, but rather as each other’s adopted family. By this point, most of us see them as friends. We worry for their safety. We heavily root for them. Genuine emotional connection is the magic that MCU has built all these years.

“Even if there’s a small chance we can undo this, we owe it to everyone that’s not in this room to try.” – Black Widow

Endgame also serves as a testament to the majestic directorial skills of the Russo brothers, Joe and Anthony, in tying up a decade’s worth of storytelling into a poignant and hair-raising climax. The film bears plenty of callbacks from its franchise’s earliest entries, along with a top-notch cinematography and even the frenetic quality of the comic books. It’s emotionally-overwhelming and that’s because Endgame is a layered film at its best. It’s an epic superhero spectacle, an inventive heist, a dramatic tale of courage and loss, and most of all, an exploration of what it means to be a family and a hero. The hearty takeaway is this: heroism is not defined by superhero abilities, but by what one is willing to sacrifice for the greater good.

Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) joins the Avengers in ‘Endgame.’

It’s true that Endgame will have a much deeper impact for the diehard fans. With its sense of finality pervading throughout, the film takes its viewers to a roller-coaster of emotions: I was gasping, laughing, crying and cheering (sometimes all at the same time). Its tragic yet uplifting. To say that Marvel has outdone themselves with their carefully crafted emotional beats, thrilling action sequences and heartbreaking farewells, is an understatement. No other movie franchise has done this feat in Hollywood history.

“Let’s go get this son of a b—–.” – Steve Rogers

MCU caps off an era by being more than just 11 years of entertainment. This is the cinematic superhero journey of a generation. Part of that journey is the end but with each ending comes a new beginning. The past is golden and the future looks bright. I give my heartfelt gratitude to all the characters and to all the true and unsung heroes of Marvel.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ earns P205-M on its first day; now the highest-grossing opening in PH cinema

Much like how Thanos snapped his fingers to wipe out half of the population of the entire universe in an instant, the much-awaited release of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame obliterated Philippine box-office records on its opening day. 

Bringing a decade’s worth of action and storytelling to an epic conclusion, Avengers: Endgame smashed local opening day box-office records as it opened with P205,676,345 (US$ 3,880,685) in 970 screens, with select cinemas starting at 6:01am and some holding 24-hour screenings. 

The fourth film in the Avengers franchise and the 22nd film in the grand Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Avengers: Endgame broke the opening day record of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War,

making it the biggest opening of a Marvel film in Philippine cinemas to date. 

Weeks prior to the opening day, local malls have already started selling tickets for Avengers: Endgame and Filipino Marvel superfans showed their love and support for the Infinity saga movie as opening day tickets were almost immediately sold-out.
