There is a big VA VA VA here in Rio de Janeiro right now. Rio's actors are here to release the movie (once showed in this blog, check here!). Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Jamie Foxx , Will.I.AM, Rodrigo Santoro, Carlinhos Brown (Brazilian singer), Jemine.
Anne Hathaway is a charm. She tietou (gave too much attention) to Bebel Gilberto. She said she thought that the sceneries in the movies were a licenca poetica (or a figure of speech) used by Carlos Saldanha to make the movie more beautiful, but she realized Rio is THAT AWESOME! Anne had caipirinha with cachaca, mentioned she has made lots of "old friends" here and that she feels like a local. I think she is/was overwhelmed. Jamie Foxx just commented that he knew Rio from the adult website. Come one, Jamie, get clever, get worldly! There is much more about Rio than teats.

This is the first trailer for Rio, a new animated feature film from Blue Sky Studios (Ice Age, Robots, Horton Hears a Who!). The movie is directed by Carlos Saldanha and will be released in April, 2011 (USA).
Set in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rainforest of Brazil, the comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind. When Blu discovers there’s another - and that she’s a she - he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it’s far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life’s many wonders. ‘Rio’ brings together a menagerie of vivid characters, a heart-warming story, colorful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music, and family-friendly song and dance,
