What ever happened to Manolete? I was waiting to see the story of Manuel Laureano Rodríguez “Manolete” Sánchez (Adrien Brody) and Antoñita “Lupe” Sino (Penélope Cruz) brought to the big screen and it seems to have been sitting on a shelf for the last two years (for us in North America anyway). When I saw the Manolete Trailer, posted below, I was waiting for it to be released, now on IMDB, its saying that Manolete‘s release will be extended to Italy. The true life story behind Manolete makes a interesting film: Manolete “rose to prominence shortly after the Spanish Civil War and is considered by some to be the greatest bullfighter of all time.” Check out some pictures from the film and the extended trailer below, which has major SPOILERS, and leave your thoughts on them and the film.
