ccccuuuuppppccccaaaakkkkeeee:

1. The cast for this movie is probably the biggest hispanic cast I have ever seen in an animated movie probably ever. Representation people!

2. The design for this movie is not like anything I’ve ever seen. 

3. There is a Mexican Protagonist. Do you know how long it’s been since there was a Mexican protagonist? 70 YEARS! “The Three Caballeros” came out in 1944, it’s 2014.

4. It covers issues like gender roles in the hispanic/latino community and sort of challenges it. 

5. It’s against animal cruelty. 

6. It presents El Dia de Los Muertos beautifully.

Truth lies just beneath the surface by “Sarmati”
In Slavic mythology, the rusalki were fish-women, who lived at the bottom of rivers. In the middle of the night, they would walk out to the bank and dance in meadows. If they saw handsome men, they would fascinate them with songs and dancing, mesmerize them, then leading them away to the river floor to their deaths.

‘BIRDMAN’ DIRECTOR SAYS SUPERHERO MOVIES ARE ‘CULTURAL GENOCIDE’
By Matt D. Wilson
Birdman, the movie in which former Batman actor Michael Keaton stars as an actor who rose to superstardom playing the titular superhero, comes out today, and it looks to be a pretty strong dark comedy.
If you’re looking for a little context before you head off to see it, the movie’s director, Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, minced no words when asked about his opinion of superhero movies in a Deadline interview this week. The key soundbite would be “cultural genocide.” There’s a little more to it than that, though.

Book of Life is in Cinemas in the US from today (Oct 17th)

The art book is already available from Amazon and from what I hear it’s FANTASTIC

My plea to you is this.

Do not ignore this movie.

Make this thing EXPLODE on it’s opening weekend.

If you have ever complained about the lack of non-white main characters in animated movies, PAY TO WATCH THIS

If you reblog protesting posts about animated fairy tales only focusing on european and caucassian folklore, PAY TO WATCH THIS

If you are sick of seeing movies intended for children handed to people like Michael Bay, PAY TO WATCH THIS

If you have been reposting cultural appropriation posts about Dia de los Muertos and want to support representation of the richness of Mexican culture in regards to it’s celebrations from people who are actually part of it, PAY TO WATCH THIS

If you give one shit about animation as a medium, if you think it should be treated better at award ceremonies and given the same attention and respect as live action films, PAY TO WATCH THIS

The film industry only understands one thing.  YOUR MONEY.

They do not give two shits about your posts on tumblr or your petitions or your beautiful fanart.  If you do not throw your money at cinemas to see this film the movie industry and distributors will see this movie as a FAILURE.  It doesn’t matter how breathtaking the animation is, how glorious the design is, how good the story or cultural accuracy is, THEY WILL SEE IT AS A FAILURE.  

AND WHETHER OR NOT THIS MOVIE TURNS OUT TO BE GOOD, IT DOES NOT MATTER.  The spirit and message of this movie is important.  It’s made by people who love the culture they came from and want to share it with the world.  It may not be perfect, I’ve heard the story is a little lacking, but no experiment is perfect on it’s first try.  Even if it’s not perfect showing it your support WITH YOUR WALLET is an indicator for Hollywood to keep trying this concept.  To give new things a chance.  Not just stick with what has made them money in the past.

And if this does well they get the chance to make things BETTER.

My friends, Frozen and Lego Movie were huge hits and you guys were part of making that happen.  This film deserves that same chance.  

Spread the word.  Buy your tickets and get bums in seats for this.  Take your families, your kids, your nieces and nephews, your friends. Demand it at your local cinemas.  Make the trip to see it at your nearest cineplex.  3D or 2D EITHER IS FINE.  Hell if you REALLY can’t see it yourself for whatever reason PROMOTE IT TO OTHERS.

Even if you hate it, even if you think it’s stupid, even if you don’t like CGI.  How well this movie does in the USA matters BIG time..  You are one of the biggest movie going nations in the world, your support of this film can make it BIG.  In the Uk we’re not getting this for another week and by then it won’t matter how well it does over here.  The film industry only really cares about US ratings and how much money it made in the US.

Give this movie the chance to make a change in the industry.

Please.
