LOS CAMPEONES is in this book!

Posted in Books, Los Campeones on July 24, 2012 by lili

¡Quiero ver sangre! has been on our wishlist for a while. This is an Encyclopedia on Lucha Libre Cinema published in Mexico that is hard to come by in the USA. Recently,  Keith Rainville (Writer of Los Campeones, Mr FPU) bought a copy on Amazon and WOW! – our film is in this book! What a huge thrill.  Los Campeones De La Lucha Libre is listed in here with a synopsis and very nice review. Click on the image below to enlarge. (Everything is in español)

The Slapbooth Show

Posted in blogging, boston terriers, Los Campeones, New projects with tags , , , , on June 14, 2012 by lili

The Slapbooth Show is a podcast show by Bibi and Fifi of The Poubelle Twins, whom you may know from the very popular Lucha Va Voom.

If you have an hour to spare, listen to me chat with our special luchadora friends on this podcast –>  http://www.deuxfilles.net/podcast/?p=409  

It is a little silly. We talk about Lucha Libre, Mucha Lucha, Los Campeones, Doggie Drawings, and Ice Cream. I also say  that I am looking for an agent… which is indeed true as I have some new projects (animated and  screenable, illustrated and publishable) for which I could use some representation.  Gracias!  – Lili

P.S. I have also been recently interviewed on The Kitchn.com HERE

LOS CAMPEONES DE LA LUCHA LIBRE on DVD!

Posted in Los Campeones on October 9, 2011 by lili

At long last, three years after its Mexican theatrical premiere, Los Campeones  finally makes its way onto the US and Canadian DVD market!

In fact, this is the second time that the movie has been released on  DVD.   In 2009, the  DVD release was for Mexico only.

Mexico DVD release (2009)

However, while we are more than happy to see the movie finally available to everyone, as the movie’s producers, there is one thing for the record we need to set straight…

In this new release, some of the music we picked for certain scenes has been replaced due to higher worldwide licensing fees that the US distributors weren’t able or willing to pay for.

We spent a lot of time hand picking some great tracks from some great artists that we felt were perfect for the scenes they were used in.  You can hear some of the original soundtrack at www.myspace.com/loscampeones  (Yeah yeah, we know. Nobody goes to myspace anymore)

Having said this, Phofo‘s magnificent original score with Mariachi Los Toros remains, and the HD visual quality of this DVD is stunning. The colors look as brilliant as they did in the 35mm release.

The truly hardcore Los Campeones fan may be pleased to know that in total there are now FOUR versions of the movie…

  1. Mexican theatrical release (Spanish)
  2. Mexican DVD release (English & Spanish)
  3. US DVD release (English, different music)
  4. US DVD release (different Spanish language version, different music)

You can purchase the new Los Campeones DVD on amazon.com HERE

And yes, the Mexican DVD was still available on Amazon last time we looked :)

We are so excited about these Hammer Mexican Sci Fi screenings! A related article on Wired.com HERE.

La Nave De Los Monstrous in particular – because we have only seen this on low-quality VHS in Spanish, with no English subtitles,  and it was inspiration for many a monster in Los Campeones! :)
