Libertador Trailer

"We are all sons of America." Cohen Media Group has debuted the trailer for Alberto Arvelo's Libertador, also known as The Liberator, starring Edgar Ramirez as Simon Bolivar, the Latin American revolutionary from the late 1700s and early 1800s. This sweeping and majestic biopic tells the story of how he liberated and helped Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia gain independence from the Spanish Empire. In addition to Ramirez, Libertador also stars Maria Valverde, Danny Huston, Imanol Arias, and Gary Lewis. The performances look powerful, but the cinematography looks exceptional. This might be worth watching.

Here's the first official US trailer for Alberto Arvelo's Libertador, originally debuted by Yahoo:

The Liberator, or Libertador in Spanish, is directed by Venezuelan filmmaker Alberto Arvelo Mendoza of a few films previously including Habana, Havana and To Play and to Fight. The screenplay was written by Timothy J. Sexton. Édgar Ramírez stars as Simón Bolívar, the freedom fighter who played a "key role in Latin America's struggle against the Spanish Empire and shaped the destiny of several nations. In military campaigns covering twice the territory traveled by Alexander the Great, Bolívar led Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia to independence from the rule of the Spanish monarchy, bringing 'liberation' to these areas rather than conquest." Libertador premiered at TIFF last year and hits theaters August 22nd.

Ramirez is poised to become an A-list actor. He just needs a vehicle.
