KATE WINSLET & JODIE FOSTER IN "GOD OF CARNAGE". REESE WITHERSPOON IN "BRAVE". 1ST TRAILER FOR "THE KING'S SPEECH". EMILY BLUNT IN "ENGAGEMENT GAMES"

Disney and Pixar are working on BRAVE a charming animated movie in which Reese Witherspoon will give voice to Merida, a Scottish princess looking to escape her royal fate and become a world-renown archer. A clash of wills with her mother compels Merida to make a reckless choice, which unleashes unintended peril on her father's kingdom and her mother's life. Merida struggles with the unpredictable forces of nature, magic and a dark, ancient curse to set things right. The film should be out in 2012.

Gorgeous Charlize Theron will star in TWO EYES STARING, a weird story of a nine-year-old girl who discovers her sinister friend is the ghost of her mother's dead twin. Equally gorgeous Emily Blunt will star in ENGAGEMENT GAMES a comedy about three sisters who get engaged at once and will stop at nothing to get their mother's wedding ring. The dad settles the dispute with a game of "family Olympics" :))

Kate Winslet and Jodie Foster will act together in Roman Polanski's GOD OF CARNAGE, a film about two sets of parents who decide to have a cordial meeting after their sons are involved in a schoolyard brawl. The union turns sour once the parents begin attacking each other over their questionable parenting skills, and soon this heated discussion turns to their marital problems as well. The husbands will be played by Matt Dillon and Christoph Waltz.

And I finally have a trailer for the praised drama THE KING'S SPEECH in which Colin Firth plays British king George VI, who unexpectedly became king when his brother Edward (Guy Pearce) abdicated the throne. Geoffrey Rush stars as the speech expert who helps the king find a voice with which to lead the nation into war. The cast also includes Helena Bonham Carter as Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, Derek Jacobi, Timothy Spall and Michael Gambon.

  6. Roman Polanski is one of my favorite directors. God of Carnage sounds like a very interesting story with very compelling characters (keeping a theme for today). Despite his controversies in the U.S., Polanski continues to score top talent for his films. This one has a great line-up.

  13. Hi DEZMOND - I love Reese's dress and her shoes. I actually like Kate's dress too. I am really in the mood to go shopping. Can you tell?

    ReplyDelete
  14. ah, Shellsy darling, I've put these pics of Kate, Reese and Charlize wearing stunning dresses knowing how much you like seeing some heute couture :))

  15. god of carnage sounds like its got a lot of potential. i always wondered how often self-perceived level-headed parents figured they could simply talk to another parent about their children's misbehavior and how often that meeting does well and doesn't go so well, and how often the parents might totally act the same way their children do.

    ReplyDelete
  16. ah, yes, being a former teacher I can really confirm, Ed, that parents often do act the same way as their kids and sometimes even worse.

  17. BRAVE sounds awesome! Finally a pixar movie with arrows. Not that I'm against stubby squeeky robots and balloons, but yeah, arrows.

    I kind of got the feeling after reading Charlize Theoron in Engagement that I should be leaving before I have to excuse my masculinity. But I just saw that you have the Resident Evil girl in costume to play Three Musketeers. Sweeeet!

  18. I like the sound of BRAVE :)
    --but I like most animations.

    now I'm sure that with all of the pics of lovely ladies I post here no one can feel like he has to excuse his masculinity :) Just check out all the previous posts and you will get my point ;)

    @Lynda
