New Clint Eastwood Movie Set to Shoot Scenes in Las Cruces

According to the Film Las Cruces website, officials with the organization have been working to bring the new Clint Eastwood movie “The Mule” to Las Cruces, to film scenes  in late July.

It started with a phone call by the New Mexico Film Office to Las Cruces and other communities looking for locations needed by the film.

Film Las Cruces Liaison Jon Foley took the reins of the project, helping find exactly what producers were look for, and landing the project for Las Cruces.

Since then, Foley has been working to help facilitate production needs and get the word out about local actor and crew opportunities.  This support has included intensive location scouting, assistance with production logistics, and facilitating the recent casting call held at the Film Las Cruces Studios.

Foley and Film Las Cruces are excited for the exposure and opportunities the Eastwood film will bring to Las Cruces.

“As the Film Liaison for Film Las Cruces, we work hard to showcase the many unique locations and assets of filming in and around Las Cruces,” said Jon Foley. “Securing a high profile film from one of America’s legendary actors and film makers is extremely rewarding. Our goal is to continue to attract great film projects to our region.”

President of Film Las Cruces, Jeff Steinborn, touted the impact the film will have on local small businesses and people wanting to work in the film business.

“Large film productions employ good size crews and spend money at a wide array of local businesses. This film production will likely fill over 1,000 hotel room nights, and spend thousands of dollars at local restaurants and other vendors. Additionally local people will get hired to work on the crew and become background actors. It’s a great example of the economic impact we can have if we work hard to recruit more film production to our region.”

“The Mule” stars Clint Eastwoond, Manny Montoya, Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, Jill Flint, and Michael Peña. No premiere date has been set for the film.

TNTM: Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy 2 discussion

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 movie coming soon

Guardians of the Galaxy’s box office success proved that Marvel can take a group of lesser known characters and make a really good movie.  It is one of those rare movies that received an over 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes from both the critics and the audience.  The casting was really good for the most part.  The writing for the story was phenomenal.

In 2 short hours ( I say short because it didn’t feel like that long watching it) you were introduced to a plethora of characters.  You got a good feel for the characters, their backstories, and their motivations.  It also introduced the movie going audience to Marvel interplanetary characters.  Most of the Marvel movies have been centered around Earth based characters up to this point.

In 2017 we will be flocking to theaters for Guardians of the Galaxy 2.  The storyline according to Marvel is as follows:

Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand. 

We will revisit the original cast and be introduced to some new ones.  One of those new characters is Mantis.

Story of Mantis

Mantis is the half-Vietnamese, half-German daughter of Gustav Brandt (Libra).  She was born in Vietnam.  Her father left her at the Temple of the alien Priests of Pama, a sect of the Kree. The Kree believe she might become the Celestial Madonna and mate with the eldest Cotati on Earth to become the mother of the Celestial Messiah, “the most important being in the universe”.

Mantis was trained by the Priests of Pama to become a grand-mistress of the martial arts.  She has demonstrated being fully capable of defeating opponents as skilled as Captain America. Mantis can also instinctively sense weak points in an opponent.

Using this with her skills in pressure points she is able to knock out beings as powerful as Thor.  She has only lost in hand to hand martial arts match to Moondragon and her father Libra. She also has mental powers that enable her to manipulate others. In the comics Mantis has been an interesting and sometimes controversial character.

Story of Ego

Kurt Russel will be playing the role of Ego the Living Planet.  They are writing him in as being Peter Quill’s (Star-Lord) father.  The fact he was able to hold the Infinity Gem at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy let us know there was a bit more to him.

Ego is exceptionally intelligent. He has an extreme superiority complex and can be emotional if thwarted. For a while Ego is propelled through space via the engine Galactus implanted on him and can travel at faster than light speeds

Ego has total control over his entire mass down to the molecular level. He often shapes himself into the appearance of a gigantic face on the planet’s surface to address powerful beings.  He is able to create humanoid vessels for his consciousness.   He also possesses psionic abilities allowing him to project blasts powerful enough to destroy other worlds.

This sequel promises to be just as good as the first one if not better.  Going on the record here predicting another huge box office for Marvel with Guardians of the Galaxy 2.  Can’t wait to see how much little Groot has grown up.
