Today, we have the first trailer and poster for Welcome to Acapulco, and it’s sure to get your heart racing.
Video game designer Matt Booth has one shot to save his career by unveiling his biggest project yet at the Video Game Awards in New Mexico. But after running into a friend at the airport and having a little too much to drink before his flight, he ends up in ACTUAL Mexico, specifically, Acapulco.
As soon as he lands, he finds himself on the run from high-powered criminals, deadly hitmen and the Feds, all looking for a mysterious package that he has allegedly smuggled through customs yet knows nothing about. Partnering with a badass, beautiful femme fatale and channeling his inner video game action hero, the pair unravels a conspiracy that could shake the foundation of the United States, maybe even the world.
Sun’s out, guns out for an ensemble cast of B movie favorites, who are ready to stream up a storm this spring. Ana Serradilla and Michael Kingsbaker lead a team that also features Michael Madsen, Paul Sorvino, William Baldwin, Bradley Gregg, Jeannine Kaspar, Michael Papajohn and Guillermo Ivan.
Guillermo Iván also directed the movie, working from a screenplay by Garry Charles. Ivan began his long career as an actor way back in 1989 when he appeared in the Mexican made Love Lies. He made a name for himself in the country, appearing in quite a few films, leading to his stateside debut in the 2010 Syfy schlock fest Dinoshark. He has continued to have a successful career in front of the camera.
He also has quite a few director and producer credits to his name, making his feature film directorial debut with Sin retorno in 2009, in which he also starred.
