Location: East Lake Street, Minneapolis When: Sunday, May 8th // 11AM-7PM
Cinco De Mayo is this Thursday so it’s time to start thinking about the options at hand. East Lake Street will once again host Minneapolis’ annual Cinco De Mayo parade which runs from 2nd Avenue to Portland Avenue. The event will feature traditional dancers, live music, arts, crafts, tons of food and games for the kids. A good time no doubt, the Cinco De Mayo parade is a great chance to immerse yourself in Mexican culture. This event is free and will go down rain or shine, click the link below for more information.
Stepping away from the overdone comic-book genre that seems to be dominating big screens these days, a new film titled Sicario from Prisoners and Enemy director Denis Villeneuve will be opening in theaters this fall. The script comes from actor-turned-screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (White Rush, Sons of Anarchy) and centers upon an FBI agent who is recruited by a government task force to aid in the ongoing drug war happening at the US/Mexican border. Starring in the leading roles are actors Emily Blunt (The Adjustment Bureau, Edge of Tomorrow), Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men, Men In Black 3), and Oscar-winner Benicio Del Toro (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Traffic), with Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, The Wolf of Wall Street), Jeffery Donovan (Burn Notice, Changeling) and Victor Garber (Titanic, Argo) also appearing in the supporting cast. The film received very positive reviews and an Official Selection nod at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and will be open in theaters nationwide this September 18th, a pretty solid contender for Scott Cooper’s Black Mass with Johnny Depp, which opens the same weekend, so mark your calendars! The trailer is available here on MADE.
