Andy Garcia and Eva Longoria arrived on the red carpet Thursday night (May 31) for the Los Angeles premiere of the epic action film, "For Greater Glory."
The movie that aims to shed light on Mexico's war against Catholicism, stars Oscar-nominated actor Garcia as one of the leaders of an insurgency of Catholic rebels.
The Cuban-American actor was inspired by the true story that at times has been forgotten.
SOUNDBITE Andy Garcia saying (Spanish):
"It is sincerely a great honor to be a part of the film, to be able to portray such an heroic character in the film," said Garcia.
Featuring an international cast of actors that includes Hollywood starlet Eva Longoria and Golden Globe winner Peter O'Toole, the epic movie is Mexico's most expensive production with a reported budget of about 20 million dollars (USD), considerably higher than other home-grown feature films.
The epic historical drama, which had an April 20 release in Mexico, will be hitting theaters in the United States on June 1st.
