Desperate Housewives may be on hiatus, but that doesn't mean that the perennially busy Eva Longoria Parker is taking a break. She just became mayor of a Latin American village—onscreen, anyway.

Traffic. American Gangster. Che. Mambo Kings. Yul Vazquez has appeared in a ton of iconic, award-winning films, but this summer, he goes for strictly popcorn fare, playing an epic bad guy in The A-Team. We caught up to the Cuban-born, Miami-raised actor and got him to open up about his own “dark side.”

After a 20-year long hiatus, Pedro Almodóvar is once again partnering with Antonio Banderas for a new film entitled La Piel Que Habito (The Skin I Live In). Banderas was one of Almodovar original muses, appearing in no less than five of his earliest films including Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown and Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down—the film credited with launching Banderas to international stardom.

Ah, summer. That magical time when videogames become movies starring serious actors vying shamelessly for that cold hard cash that indies just can’t pony up. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, especially when the actor is Jake Gyllenhaal, looking hot in a bod especially buffed up for The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Penelope Cruz is in Sex and the City 2 for just a couple of minutes, as a woman that Mr. Big shamelessly flirts with at a bar, making Carrie anxious that their boring marriage needs serious help. The scene made us wonder: Why in the world would the filmmakers reach out to the gorgeous Oscar-winning actress, who is a huge fan of the first SATC movie, for a barely-there cameo? We don't know the answer to that, but we do know that the movie would have been a lot better with more Penelope in it.

Sex and the City 2 begins with Stanford and Anthony’s big gay wedding, complete with 16-man choir, swans in a pond, and Liza Minelli officiating—before she strips to a sequin dress and sings Single Ladies. The sequence perfectly encapsulates what SATC has become: tired and so over the top it’s hard to relate anymore.

Have you heard the news?! Wonder Woman, the 1940s DC Comics classic that was brought into our homes in the '70s via half-Mexican kick-ass queen of her day Lynda Carter, is in production to be released as a movie! (We're polishing off our action figures.)
In the meantime, we want to know which Latina actress you think should suit up for the part?
So tell us...

Everything about Spanish director Alejandro Amenabar’s movies (The Sea Inside, The Others) is intimate—from story to tone to setting. Until now. His newest film, the visually stunning Agora, is a brainy epic that explores what happens when religion, politics and science mingle and clash. Set in Egypt in 391 AD, is his most ambitious film since the genre-bending Open Your Eyes (the film that inspired the lackluster Hollywood remake, Vanilla Sky).
