"Somos Anormales" is the debut single by Puerto Rican singer Residente, released on January 13, 2017, as the first single from his 2017 debut solo album Residente. It won the 2017 Latin Grammy Award for Best Urban Song; the song was written and recorded in Kyzyl, Siberia, where Residente spent one week. It features throat singing band Chirgilchin. According to him, they are singing in Tuvan a concept he wrote in Spanish translated to English so they could translate it to their native language. According to Residente, "the usage of the term'abnormal' allowed me to break free from the depreciative connotation of the word to convert it in a inclusive concept. If there is something that we all have in common, is that we are different". In a press release of 2016, Residente told people to "have their eyes and minds open for what is coming"; the video for the song marks Residente's directional debut and was shot in Madrid, over the course of four days. It features John Leguizamo, Leonor Watling, Óscar Jaenada and Juan Diego Botto, among 70 others, was created by Zapatero Film and Deseif Producciones.
It shows a woman hatching from an egg and giving birth to multiple naked adults with conditions such as dwarfism and albinism. They craft clothes out of wool and divide into two groups, one clean and another dirty. Both engage in a fight, but they end up turning violence into love. Throughout the video, Residente sings with his head popping out of the woman's vagina; the scene with the giant vagina expelling people has been compared to a scene in Pedro Almodóvar's Talk to Her, in which Watling was cast. About the video concept, Residente says: Residente said that the battle scene can be applied to many different contexts of conflicts.

Fernando Casado Arambillet, best known as Fernando Rey, was a Spanish film and television actor, who worked in both Europe and the United States. A suave, international actor best known for his roles in the films of surrealist director Luis Buñuel and as a drug lord in The French Connection, he appeared in more than 150 films over half a century; the debonair Rey was described by French Connection producer Philip D'Antoni as "the last of the Continental guys". He achieved his greatest fame after he turned 50: "Perhaps it is a pity that my success came so late in life", he told the Los Angeles Times. "It might have been better to have been successful, like El Cordobés in the bullring. Your life is all before you to enjoy it." Rey was born in A Coruña, the son of Captain Casado Veiga. He studied architecture, but the Spanish Civil War interrupted his university studies which led him to his success. In 1936, Rey began his career in films as an extra, sometimes getting credited, it was that he chose his stage name, Fernando Rey.
He kept his first name, but took his mother's second surname, Rey, a short surname with a clear meaning. In 1944, his first speaking role was the Duke of Alba in José López Rubio's Eugenia de Montijo. Four years he acted the part of Felipe I el Hermoso, King of Spain, in the Spanish cinema blockbuster Locura de amor; this was the start of a prolific career in film, radio and television. Rey was a great dubbing actor in Spanish television, his voice was considered intense and personal, he became the narrator of important Spanish movies including Luis García Berlanga's Bienvenido Mr. Marshall, Ladislao Vajda's Marcelino Pan y Vino, the 1992 re-dubbed version of Orson Welles' Don Quixote. In fact, Rey acted in four different film versions of Don Quixote in different roles, if one counts the Welles version, his brilliant performance in the role of a demotivated and doubtful actor in Juan Antonio Bardem's Cómicos, while showing him for the first time in a successful lead part, paradoxically, as he saw himself as the real incarnation of the role, plunged him in a professional depression, of which he did not emerge until his collaboration with Luis Buñuel several years later.
However, in the short term, Buñuel's disconcerting public remark on Rey's performance in another of Bardem's film, Sonatas, "I love how this actor plays a corpse", could only increase Rey's apprehensions. Rey became Buñuel's preferred actor and closest friend. Rey's first international performance was in The Night Heaven Fell a 1958 French-Italian film directed by Roger Vadim, where he acted alongside Stephen Boyd, Marina Vlady and Brigitte Bardot, he had played in an American TV series, It happens in Spain, the story of the exploits of a private detective, operating out in Spain, who helps distressed American tourists. In 1959, Rey co-starred with Steve Reeves and Christine Kaufmann in the Italian sword and sandal film The Last Days of Pompeii. In 1961 Rey played in a European Western, The Savage Guns, as the popularity of that genre increased during that decade appeared in some other movies, including the political The Price of Power, the bizarre cult classic Compañeros, two sequels of The Magnificent Seven, namely Return of the Seven and Guns of the Magnificent Seven.
It was his work with Orson Welles and Luis Buñuel during the 1960s and 1970s that made Rey internationally prominent. For Welles, Rey performed in Chimes at Midnight and The Immortal Story. Rey played memorably the French villain. Friedkin intended to cast Francisco Rabal as Charnier, but could not remember his name after seeing him in Luis Buñuel's Belle de jour. Rey was hired. Rey's English and French were not perfect, but Friedkin discovered that Rabal spoke neither of them, opted to keep Rey, who reprised the role in the less successful sequel, French Connection II. Along 1970s and 1980s Rey played in many international co-productions, some of his appearances being cameos; these films include Lewis Gilbert's The Adventurers, Mauro Bolognini's Drama of the Rich, Vincente Minnelli's A Matter of Time, Valerio Zurlini's The Desert of the Tartars, Robert Altman's Quintet, J. Lee Thompson's Caboblanco and Frank Perry's Monsignor. One of Rey's greater successes in these years was Elisa, vida mía, a 1977 Spanish drama film written and directed by Carlos Saura.
On his work in Stuart Rosenberg's Voyage of the Damned, Rey once said: "I played president Brú. They paid me a lot of money for less than six hours of shooting, in the Barcelona Stock Exchange building, with James Mason. I got more money than Orson Welles, who played a great role...". In years, Rey preferred to work in Spain, with successes as Francisco Regueiro's Padre Nuestro, José Luis Cuerda's El bosque animado and Jaime de Armiñán's

It is the first film in the series not to be directed by Gore Verbinski, being replaced by Rob Marshall. Jerry Bruckheimer again served as producer; the film is technically a stand-alone sequel to the previous installments. In the film, which draws its plot loosely from the novel On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers, Captain Jack Sparrow is joined by Angelica in his search for the Fountain of Youth, confronting the infamous pirate Blackbeard; the film was produced by Walt Disney Pictures and released in the United States on May 20, 2011. It was the first film in the series to be released in the Disney Digital IMAX 3D formats.

Principal photography lasted for 106 days between June and November 2010, with locations in Hawaii, the United Kingdom, Puerto Rico and California. Filming employed 3D cameras similar to those used in the production of the 2009 film Avatar, ten companies were involved with the film's visual effects. Following inflated production costs which ballooned the net budget to $379 million, the film is regarded as the most expensive film made. On Stranger Tides broke many box office records upon release, was the third highest-grossing film of 2011, it stands as the 28th-highest-grossing film of all time worldwide when not adjusting for inflation.

After a failed attempt to rescue his first mate, Joshamee Gibbs, in London, Captain Jack Sparrow is brought before King George II. The king wants Jack to guide an expedition to the Fountain of Youth before King Ferdinand and the Spanish Navy can locate it. Jack's old nemesis, Captain Hector Barbossa, now a privateer in service to the British Navy after losing his leg and ship, the Black Pearl, which he says was sunk, is heading the expedition. Jack escapes, he meets up with Captain Teague, who warns Jack about the Fountain's rituals. Jack learns; the impostor is Angelica, Jack's former lover, the daughter of the ruthless pirate Blackbeard, who practices voodoo magic and wields the mythical "Sword of Triton" that controls his ship, the Queen Anne's Revenge. While Jack is shanghaied aboard Blackbeard's ship, Gibbs escapes execution by memorizing and destroying Jack's map showing the Fountain's location, forcing Barbossa to take him along. Meanwhile, after a failed mutiny aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, Jack is forced to guide the crew to the Fountain.
Blackbeard seeks the Fountain's power to circumvent his predestined fatal encounter with a "one-legged man", who happened to be Barbossa. Jack must find two silver chalices aboard the Santiago; the Fountain's water must be drunk by two people from the chalices. Drinking from one chalice containing a mermaid's tear will extend life. Jack discovers that the Black Pearl was captured and shrunk before being added to Blackbeard's collection of other shrunken ships in bottles; the Queen Anne's Revenge harvest mermaid tears. After managing to lure in a mermaid named Tamara, she summons other mermaids to attack the crew before Jack causes an explosion that scares them away. A mermaid named Syrena is caught. Reaching Ponce de León's ship on an uncharted island and Blackbeard coerce Jack into retrieving both chalices. Jack locates the decaying vessel, only to find Barbossa there. Both guess that the Spanish have taken the chalices, after they are nowhere to be found on the vessel. Jack and Barbossa steal the chalices.

Meanwhile, reciprocating Philip's love, is tricked into shedding a tear. Blackbeard collects it. Jack returns with the chalices and bargains with Blackbeard for Angelica's safety, Jack's confiscated magical compass, Gibbs' release. In return, Jack vows to lead him to the Fountain. At the Fountain, Blackbeard's crew is confronted by Barbossa and his men and they battle while Barbossa and Blackbeard fight; the Spanish arrive, intending to destroy the Fountain, believing its power an abomination against God. They throw them in the swamp; when Barbossa stabs Blackbeard with a poisoned sword, Angelica is cut and poisoned. Jack notices Angelica begins frantically searching the swamp for the chalices. B
