Trailer for ‘Cesar Chavez: An American Hero’

The trailer is now online for the upcoming biopic about civil-rights activist and labor organizer Cesar Chavez, titled “Cesar Chavez: An American Hero”. The film stars Michael Pena, America Ferrera, Rosario Dawson, John Malkovich, Jacob Vargas, Michael Cudlitz, John Ortiz, Wes Bentley, Julian Sands, Gabriel Mann, Kevin Dunn, Yancey Arias, and Mark Moses.

Cesar Chavez chronicles the birth of a modern American movement led by famed civil rights leader and labor organizer, Cesar Chavez. Torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to bringing dignity and justice to others, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle for the rights of farm workers. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual’s ability to change the system.

Film is directed by Mexican-born actor Diego Luna from a screenplay written by “Hotel Rwanda” co-scribe Keir Pearson.

I Feel sorry for the film since it opens on April 4, 2014, the same date as “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and this movie will get buried that weekend but that’s what happens when you have PANTELION as the distributor.

Have a look at the trailer below.

    I think it’s canny counterprogramming, myself. It’s not as though the film has the sort of broad appeal to see it storm to #1, even on a quiet weekend.

    It’s putting itself against something that couldn’t be more different, and might gain a lot of arses in seats from people who don’t much fancy yet another superhero punchathon.

    looks to be promising but will wait for
    it after theatrical release. Michael Pena is a great actor though….

    The trailer was effective. It’s piqued my interest. MP is a bad-ass actor that’s for sure.
