"Latin Dragon"... Universal Introduces a Latino Superheroe!
HOLLYWOOD, CA -- 11/22/2004 -- With over $640 billion in purchasing power, a population of over 39 million and the number one minority group in the U.S.... What’s missing? A Latino martial arts action hero!
Universal recently released the world wide feature film “Latin Dragon” starring Fabian Carrillo, America’s first mainstream Latino Martial Arts Action Hero! This breakthrough feature film was distributed internationally in 60 countries by Image Works Entertainment International and released domestically by Universal and Screen Media Ventures to very positive reviews. “Latin Dragon” has a star-studded cast that includes Gary Busey, Lorenzo Lamas, Joyce Giraud, Robert LaSardo, James Hong and Pepe Cerna.
“The New York Times” called Fabian “The first Latin action hero and maybe the next great action hero of our time.” Fabian’s press kit is available in digital format at:
Recent reviews include:
-- “Latino martial arts sensation Fabian Carrillo shines in this rip-roaring actioner!”
-- “It’s ’Rumble in the Bronx’ meets ’Walking Tall’”
-- “Fabian Carrillo is an international sensation”
-- “Latin Dragon gives us our first mainstream Latino action hero”
Fabian’s story is an amazing one! He was raised in the Bronx and fought his way out against the greatest of odds. Fabian went on to be a highly respected martial arts champion, then on to acting in several feature films before his first starring role in “Latin Dragon.” Also, Fabian earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration/Marketing with a Second Major in Spanish from Albany State University. He holds five Black Belts in different disciplines of the martial arts and was a three-year national Karate champion in fighting, forms and weapons. Recently, Fabian was inducted into the Masters 2003 Hall of Fame receiving the “Living Legend Award.”
With the burgeoning Latino market in the U.S., Fabian’s success story is remarkable -- he’s truly a representation of the American Dream. He’s a positive example for Latinos, or any other group in the U.S., who may have the talent and ability but are surrounded by negative circumstances in their lives. He wants to show them that they are important, that their dreams are attainable, and that if you are good, it doesn’t matter where you come from!
Fabian is an amazing actor, champion and hero who is really making an impact as an international film action star. He is slated to appear in three feature films next year as well as producing and hosting a TV show which is currently in development. Fabian is very talented, charismatic, accomplished and articulate.
Fabian has recently been on the front page of many newspapers and various magazines covers including “Variety.”
To all the media, with great pleasure we covey that Fabian Carrillo is available for interviews. As always, we appreciate your attention and hospitality.
