Alejandro Riera, guest commentator for Fandango.com, is baffled that Latinos hardly appear in the new disaster flick, 2012.
While major cities like Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Paris are annihilated on screen by Doomsday disasters, Latin cities remain unscathed.
Riera thinks the exclusion is weird, especially since the end- of-the-world 2012 theory was originally conceived in Latin America by Mayans.
Hes annoyed that the Hollywood blockbuster couldnt throw Latinos a bone and at least blow up one of our cities.
Even casting a Latino actor and killing him half-way through wouldve been better than nothing.
Though being spared from the Apocalypse could be nice, Riera fears that omitting Latinos in mega movies is an ugly trend.
It doesnt make much sense because Latinos actively go to the movies and are the biggest ticket-buyers.
