Omar Chaparro, Aislinn Derbez, ‘Compadres’ cast dazzle at LA Premiere | PHOTOS
With the movie already making the rounds in Mexico, the U.S. premiere of “Compadres” is just around the corner. Starring Omar Chaparro, Joey Morgan, Aislinn Derbez, Erick Elias, Camila Sodi, and more, the action-packed bilingual comedy tells the story of a former Mexican cop GARZA (Omar Chaparro) seeking revenge on SANTOS (Erick Elias), who kidnapped his girlfriend MARIA (Aislinn Derbez) and framed him for a crime he didn’t commit.
With the help of his former boss CORONADO (José Sefami), Garza manages to escape with a tip about how to find Santos which leads him to San Diego in search of an “accountant.” This said faccountant is responsible for stealing $10 million dollars from Santos and may know Santos’ whereabouts. When Garza arrives, he is shocked to find that the infamous accountant is a 17 year old American computer hacker named VIC (Joey Morgan). Despite an immediate disdain for each other, these two divided by culture, language and age, realize that Garza’s low tech brain and Vic’s high tech hacker skills may be their only chance at finding Santos before he finds them.
“Compadres” premieres nationwide on April 22, but first, here’s an exclusive gallery of the movie’s premiere in Los Angeles.
