Lowriders trailer

You might remember that a few years ago, Peruvian filmmaker Ricardo de Monteuil made waves with his sci-fi short film The Raven. Not long after, he signed on to direct the coming-of-age drama Lowriders, and today the first trailer for that film has arrived.

War for the Planet of the Apes‘ Gabriel Chavarria stars as Danny, a Mexican-American teenage graffiti artist growing up among the colorful lowrider car culture of East LA. His dreams put him at odds with his father (Demián Bichir), a garage owner who hopes his son will follow in his footsteps. Also starring are Theo Rossi as Danny’s troublemaker brother, Eva Longoria as their new stepmom, and Melissa Benoist and Tony Revolori as Danny’s friends. Watch the Lowriders trailer below.  Read More »
