Legend of Zorro Footage
"This film holds a lot of meaning to me, both professionally and personally," says Zeta-Jones. "I actually met my husband [Michael Douglas] when I was promoting (1998's The Mask of Zorro) in Deauville, France, and it was such an amazing time for me, being completely unknown, really, in America or in Mexico, where I shot the first one. It's a very important film for me and it's very close to my heart."
Banderas believes Zorro is "not like other action heroes; he's very sly and he moves like a panther." The actor adds that while making a film like Zorro is physically arduous, "it doesn't matter when you go to the movie theatre and you see the people laughing and having a great time. All the sacrifices, we shouldn't even make remarks about them, because it's natural, it's our profession it's what we do."
According to ET, "Legend finds Alejandro, a.k.a. Zorro (Antonio), and Elena (Catherine) married with a 10-year-old son, Joaquin (Adrian Alonso). Zorro continues to protect the poor and oppressed residents of the California territory. But when he tries to foil the nefarious plans of prominent land barons and businessmen who are trying to undermine the new statehood of California, Zorro suddenly finds his own family in danger."
Zorro opens September 23rd, 2005.
