The CW drama series The Tomorrow People follows a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities, who are the next evolutionary leap of mankind.  Up until a year ago, Stephen (Robbie Amell) was a “normal” teenager, but then he learned that he is part of a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication, and that this race is being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra.

Returning with all new episodes, actress Alexa Vega is joining the show as fellow Ultra trainee Hillary, for a story arc in which Jedikiah (Mark Pellegrino) decides to see who is worthy of becoming an Ultra agent by forcing them to compete with each other.  In this exclusive phone interview with Collider, Alexa Vega talked about how this role was offered to her, why she wanted to be a part of this show, the fun of playing such a conniving bitch, how much she still wants to learn about her character, her drive to fight for survival, learning how to do the teleporting stunts, and getting to do all of her own fighting.  Checking out what she had to say after the jump.

Robert Rodriguez is finally getting to two projects this summer that he’s long-promised were on the way: Machete Kills and Sin City 2.  He’s been filming the Machete follow-up first, and today he revealed a piece of casting in grand fashion by tweeting a character poster for a woman named Le Chameleon, played by Lady Gaga.  Rodriguez’s full tweet reads like this:

I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!

The sequel finds the titular star, an ex-Federale played by Danny Trejo, receiving a request from the President himself to take down a dangerous drug lord who is threatening the U.S. with nuclear attacks (obviously).  The eclectic, and quite possibly volatile, cast includes Jessica Alba, Edward James Olmos, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Demian Bichir, Michelle Rodriguez, Mel Gibson, and Charlie Sheen.  Yep, Lady Gaga fits right in.  Hit the jump to take a gander at her poster, and also to get a look at Spy Kids star Alexa Vega, um, in character for Machete Kills. Warning: she’s very, very grown-up now.

International Trailer for SPY KIDS 4: ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD

The trailer for Robert Rodriguez’ Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World has gone online.  The film stars Jessica Alba as Marissa Cortez Wilson, a retired spy who returns to the espionage alongside her two step children Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), the new “Spy Kids”, to defeat the evil Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven).  Antonio Banderas, Danny Trejo, Alexa Vega, and Daryl Sabara are all set to return and they’ll be joined by series newcomer Joel McHale.  Even though I enjoyed the first two Spy Kids films, this one looks like a challenge.   Bad guys getting hits with bags of vomit doesn’t exactly have the same charm as a Spy Kid having a watch that does everything but tell time.  I know these are movies for kids, but they used to be movies their parents could also enjoy and I’m not really seeing that in this international trailer.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World opens in 3D (I’m not sure why the trailer says “4D” unless all theaters magically got glasses-free 3D screens) on August 19th.

With Lionsgate’s romantic comedy From Prada to Nada opening January 28, the studio has sent over 9 clips from the film that stars Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, Kuno Becker and Adriana Barraza.  The one line synopsis (via IMDb) is:

“A Latina spin on Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, where two spoiled sisters who have been left penniless after their father’s sudden death are forced to move in with their estranged aunt in East Los Angeles.”

While I debated posting the clips, I figured Camilla Belle and Alexa Vega fans might like to see them.  If interested, hit the jump.  I’ve also posted a more detailed synopsis:

Something Like a Trailer for MOTHER’S DAY

by     Posted 3 years, 312 days ago

mothers_day_movie_image_slice_01

Darren Lynn Bousman, best known as the director of Saw II, Saw III, and (you guessed it) Saw IV, is the man behind the remake of the 1980 horror film Mother’s Day.  Rebecca De Mornay stars as the mother who helps her three fugitive sons take care of a few unwanted houseguests.  Bill caught Mother’s Day at Fantastic Fest and thought the result was “a surprisingly fun mixed bag.”

Jaime King, Deborah Ann Woll, Briana Evigan, Alexa Vega, Shawn Ashmore, and  Matt O’Leary star alongside De Mornay in the April 1 release.  Bloody Disgusting found what they refer to as a “German sales promo,” but I wouldn’t judge if you’d like to call it a trailer.  We’ll post the official trailer if/when becomes available, but until then, this sales trailer provides plenty of insight into the look and plot of the film.  Watch it after the break.

The second poster, for From Prada to Nada, reaches across the border with a Latina take on the Jane Austen classic Sense & Sensibility.  The adaptation stars April Bowlby, Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, and Nicholas D’Agosto.  Hit the jump for both posters.

Behind the Scenes Video from Director Darren Lynn Bousman’s MOTHER’S DAY

Mothers Day movie image - slice.jpg

I’ve got to give credit to whoever cut this behind the scenes video from director Darren Lynn Bousman’s “Mother’s Day”, as they’ve done an awesome job. Usually production blogs are boring and safe. Not this one. As you’ll see, this one has swearing, talk of serious violence, and some great editing. Whoever cut this must have drank a lot of red bull as it’s one minute of awesome. Take a look. You’ll agree with me.
