Four Tales From Perceval: Update


Source: Perceval Press
Categories: Gallery Shows



Viggo has teamed with some of your favorite Perceval Press artists for an exciting special exhibit of their works. Here are some updated details

There is still no definite word if Viggo will attend the opening or not, but it is being geared more for the other artists, as there will only be 3 prints from Viggo to view. The Jaxon House Gallery is really quite small. It is a converted house. Once it has reached maximum capacity we are sure that there will be significant delays until room opens up. There is a real possibility that if the crowd is large enough, some people may not be able to get inside at all.

We will try to update this information as it becomes available for those planning to attend.

The Jaxon House Gallery
June 17 through July 16
1337 Abbott Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA
(310) 401-0080

Viggo Mortensen stars in the Spanish epic.

The captain's renown should reach even greater heights this fall when the film version of Alatriste opens. Viggo Mortensen of Lord of the Rings fame stars in the Spanish-language adventure as Alatriste himself, the 17th century soldier-turned-mercenary. A new trailer - in Spanish only, at the moment - is now available at Fox's website. Even if you don't understand the dialogue, it's an intense preview that leaves a good impression of what's to come.

Although Mortensen is Danish-American, he spent time in South America during his childhood and speaks the tongue of the conquistadors fluently, among several other languages. Mortensen snagged the part after talks between the producers and Antonio Banderas fell through. Mortensen can handle both a steed and a sword, as he demonstrated in Peter Jackson's fantasy saga; no doubt, his name will be an important draw for the film.

Starring with Mortensen is Spanish starlet Elena Anaya (Van Helsing, Lucia y el sexo). Award-winning Spanish filmmaker Agustín Díaz Yanes ( Sin noticias de Dios) directed the picture.

Alatriste bows in the United States on December 22nd. It will also be shown at the Toronto Film Festival in September, around the time of its Spanish release.
