First Look: Carlito's Way: Rise to Power
Carlito's Way Rise to Power: will debut Nationwide in Major
Markets on September 7 at exclusive in-theater promotional preview screenings
and will later be available on DVD.
From the producer of Scarface and Carlito's Way comes the gritty, urban-action
film Carlito's Way Rise to Power. Jay Hernandez (Friday Night Lights),
Mario Van Peebles (Ali), Luis Guzman (Carlito's Way) and
Sean Combs (Monster's Ball) star in the gripping tale of the early years
of gangster legend Carlito Brigante. Seduced by the power of the brutal
New York underworld, he enters a deadly circle of greed and retribution.
Assisted by his two brothers-in-crime, Carlito is on the fast track to
becoming Spanish Harlem's ultimate kingpin. He quickly learns, however,
that the only way to survive at the top is through loyalty to his friends
and respect for the rules of the street.
