Gael García Bernal is a Luchadore in Sensational ‘Cassandro’ Trailer

Cassandro Trailer

“You’re pushing things. The other wrestlers think you’re getting too big.” Let’s goooo Cassandro!! Amazon’s Prime Video has revealed the first official trailer for a film titled Cassandro, which originally premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. I watched this and loved it, still on my Best of 2023 list. It really won me over, and got me all emotional, too. Oscar-winning doc filmmaker Roger Ross Williams (Life, Animated) makes his fiction directorial debut with the real-life tale of Cassandro, the “Liberace of lucha libre,” crafting an “engaging origin story” for an outsider turned unlikely superstar. Gael García Bernal embodies the two distinct sides of Saúl, capturing both his feelings of otherness and the boisterous ring persona who embraces & revels in his difference. The true story of Cassandro, the ”exotico” character of Saúl Armendáriz, a gay wrestler from El Paso. The full cast includes Roberta Colindrez, Raúl Castillo, Perla De La Rosa, Joaquín Cosio, Bad Bunny, and the real “Gigantico” lucha from Mexico. What a delightful trailer – really capturing the spirit of this. I really, really adore this film – worth the time to watch. // Continue Reading ›
