The Familia has already created a buzz for itself with a preliminary film trailer made to gage general interest level. This trailer started in New York City and has garnered inquiries from as far north as Canada and as far south as Columbia, South America. This pre-advertising has set the slate for a successful debut and international demand. In addition to the word of mouth already created by the trailer, the movie will be promoted on multiple Latino websites, radio and TV interviews. This film needs to be made because of the demand for Latino product and will be the first in the same caliber as “Scarface” The Godfather” with a real Puerto Rican flavor.
