Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz Expecting Second Baby

With her latest collaborations in Woody Allen and Pedro Almodovar projects, ‘To Rome With Love’ and ‘Im so excited’; and his remarkable performance as the villain in the latest James Bond movie, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have become the “Royal Spanish Couple”.

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz

This couple of talented and successful actors are expecting their second baby, according to the Spanish news. Currently they have a son together, Leo Encinas Bardem who was born in 2011; 4 years after they began dating. Cruz and Bardem reunite thanks to Woody Allen in the set of his Oscar Winning Film ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’. I apply the term “reunite” because this wasn’t the first movie they did together.

They participate in the movies: ‘Jamon, Jamon’, ‘Carne Tremula’ and ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’. These three films heavily charged with sexual thematic so it was obvious they were destined to be together. Besides sharing a baby, a marriage, they both have won Academy Awards for Outstanding Performances in a Supporting Role. Penelope Cruz received hers in 2008 for ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’ meanwhile Javier Bardem received his in 2007 for ‘No Country for Old Men’.

It is announced that penelope Cruz will portrait “Macarena Granada” in the upcoming movie ‘Reina de España’. It will premiere in 2014.


To Rome With Love, new tourist images of Woody Allen

A new film by Woody Allen, one of the last old-school filmmakers.  I had many expectations respect to this film, especially after the success of Midnight in Paris, which he won an Academy Award nomination.

The movie is divided into four completely different stories and the same time so common,  that cause some confusion to the viewer. With the characteristic style of Woody Allen, the film centers around the love, obviously are in the city of love. Rome.

The Cast includes Penélope Cruz, Roberto BenigniJesse Eisenberg, Alec Baldwin, Alison Pill and Woody Allen.

Not the best work of Woody but could have been one of the worst, unnamed Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Occasionally the film will produce you a smile, but no more.
