Proving (as if we needed proof) that the appetite for 3-D flicks is pretty much bottomless at this point, How to Train Your Dragon captured most of the box office dollars last weekend, followed closely by Alice in Wonderland. Coming in at #1, Dragon, the animated Dreamworks kid flick featuring a great story, bravura computer animation and America Ferrera voicing the lead female character, made a solid $43.3 million.

If there’s a face I don’t get tired of looking at, it’s Gael Garcia Bernal’s. So he’s super short, but he’s also wicked smart and an incredibly gifted actor.

In the movie, Bernal and Luna get to play against cast with Luna playing the role of rough and ready Rudo, and Bernal playing the role of sweetly naive Cursi.
