Witness the rise of a masked Latino street hero ... and his name is El Chicano!

Check out the official trailer for the upcoming Zorro/Batman-inspired action thriller that stars Raul Castillo (We the Animals, HBO's Looking) as an embittered LAPD detective who, after vowing to protect his city from the cartel, picks up the mantle of a legendary Latino vigilante known as "El Chicano."

The film, which also stars George Lopez, Aimee Garcia, Kate del Castillo, Emilio Rivera, and Jose Pablo Cantillo, is the feature directorial debut of stunt coordinator/TV director Ben Hernandez Bray (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl).

"El Chicano" is produced by actor Frank Grillo and filmmaker Joe Carnahan (Smokin' Aces, The Grey), who are working under their production label WarParty Films. Carnahan also co-wrote the screenplay with director Ben Hernandez Bray.

The film is being released in theaters on May 3rd.

When L.A.P.D. Detective Diego Hernandez (Raul Castillo) is assigned a career-making case investigating a vicious cartel, he uncovers links to his brother's supposed suicide and a turf battle that's about to swallow his neighborhood.
