The untold story of Mexico’s greatest and most beloved comic film star comes to life when Cantinflas charms the world on DVD (plus Digital), Digital HD and On Demand December 2nd from Pantelion and Lionsgate Home Entertainment. In the most successful Hispanic film of the summer, the true story of Mario “Cantinflas” Moreno is brought to vivid life. Nicknamed “The Charlie Chaplin of Mexico,” Cantinflas tries his hand at a number of odd jobs including boxing and bullfighting, finally stumbling to success in small-town bars and theaters. His improvisational quirks and fearlessness send him to the global stage where he becomes a beloved, comedic fixture. Mexico’s official submission for the 2014 Academy Award®’s Best Foreign Language Film category, Cantinflas stars Óscar Jaenada (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) accompanied by the talents of Michael Imperioli (HBO’s “The Sopranos”), Ilse Salas (Güeros), Luis Gerardo Méndez (The Noble Family) and Gabriela de la Garza (Dragonball: Evolution), along with Adal Ramones (Saving Private Perez) and Bárbara Mori (La Mujer de Mi Hermano). Cantinflas is a unique tale of one man’s journey from modest beginnings to superstardom. Watch Trailer
