Here are the most relevant news of the week in the entertainment industry. It is not, this time, entertaining news, as some of it is regrettable and saddens us.
1. Celebrities lament the situation of police violence in Colombia
Dijo “por favor” tantas veces mientras la policía sabía que los grababan y terminaron con la vida de Javier Ordóñez sin piedad, ¿qué pasa con estos policías?— J BALVIN (@JBALVIN) September 9, 2020
The unfortunate news in Colombia does not stop. On the night of September 8, a citizen of Bogotá, Javier Ordóñez, was killed at the hands of the police for the exaggerated use of a taser weapon . On the night of September 9, there were clashes between the police and citizens who came out to protest in almost 70% of the CAIs in the city of Bogotá. Celebrities, like much of the public, have been lamenting systematic police violence this week. Goyo, a singer from Chocquibtown, always politically active, has expressed from his twitter account the sadness of the news of the murder. The same has been done by reggaeton artist J Balvin, who does not usually speak out against the political and social reality of his country.
2. Frank Lebrón dies
The percussionist of the Lebrón brothers died this Wednesday in the city of Cali. Frank was the conguero of this famous salsa group, which was born in Puerto Rico and forged in New York. He died in the city of Cali, one of the capitals of salsa after his health deteriorated due to kidney failure . Salsa is undoubtedly in mourning for one of its greatest influencers and, once again, the sadness in Colombia does not stop.
3. Dune trailer debuts
In the midst of so much sad news, we continue to cover the revival of the film industry. This week it was the turn of Dune, which released a trailer. It is a science fiction film directed by Denis Villeneuve and written by himself with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts. It will star Zendaya, undoubtedly a fashion actress, and Jason Momoa. It also features Timothée Chalamet, another of the young actors who seem to be at the peak of their career at a very young age. In the trailer we see special effects accompanied by a lot of action. We can not wait.
4. Keeping up with the Kardashians ending announced
This week the end of Keeping up with the Kardashian was also in the news. The show will end next year after twenty seasons in which we saw the day to day of this chaotic family.

Kris Jenner, however, has stated in interviews that she has had a hard time assimilating the end of the series.
