Director Riccardo Gabrielli R.'s superhero action short, Zambo Dende, is still in post production with a trailer arriving between now and early next month. In the meantime hopefully you've kept up in the last year or more since this project started taking shape as it advances the prospects of a Latin American superhero entering the arena of today's saturated market laden with comic book movie fandom.
Action star Marko Zaror is up to lead the shortfilm inspired by the work of creator Nicolas Rodriguez who is teasing yet another glimpse of what's to come, here and now with a few of our villains portrayed by Esteban Cueto, Michelle Lee and Tait Fletcher. Zaror plays the title character who finds his destiny as savior and defender against Latin America's slave trade in the 16th century, and these three in the photo below are just a handful of the deadly henchmen our hero will face.
Take a look below and stick around, because we're not too far off from a teaser and we'll be sure to share it here when it arrives; If you want another look at our characters for good measure, click here!

I think it's safe to say you know your movie sucks when you not only screw the rights holders whose name and content you base your unsanctioned film on, but when said rights holders join the chorus of critics panning your movie from literally every angle of the internet. That is the level of achievement you have reached if your name is George Nolfi and you've directed a film called Birth Of The Dragon, long hyped to be a hopefully legendary homage to Bruce Lee, the late founder of Jeet Kune Do and patriarch of American martial arts movie fandom.
