EPIC TRAILER FOR PETER WEIR'S "THE WAY BACK" WITH COLIN FARRELL & ED HARRIS AND THE DYNAMIC TRAILER FOR "AND SOON THE DARKNESS" WITH KARL URBAN

I wanted to indulge you this boring Monday with some hot pics and hot news, but since there weren't any interesting ones, I must entertain you with two new trailers released in last few days.
The first one is for Peter Weir's (GALLIPOLI, THE YEAR OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY, THE TRUMAN SHOW) new film THE WAY BACK. This epic movie with epic music, epic cinematography and epic story, starring Colin Farrell, Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris, Mark Strong and Saoirse Ronan, is inspired by a true story about a group of prisoners who escaped a Gulag in Siberia in 1940 and traveled over 4000 miles across some of the most dangerous terrain in the world, facing blizzards, cold, wolves, desert heat in order to save their lives and get home. The film is out in USA on December 29.

The trailer for suspense thriller AND SOON THE DARKNESS has also been released, and I'm posting it just because Karl Urban is my favourite actor, the film itself seems cliche. Stephanie (Amber Heard) and Ellie’s (Odette Yustman) go to an exotic village in Argentina to bask
in the sun, shop and flirt with the handsome locals. After a long night of bar-hopping, the girls get into an argument, and Stephanie heads out alone in the morning to cool off. But when she returns, Ellie has disappeared. Finding signs of a struggle, Stephanie fears the worst, and turns to the police for help. But the local authorities have their hands full already – with a string of unsolved kidnappings targeting young female tourists. Skeptical of the sheriff's competency, she enlists help from Michael (Karl Urban), an American ex-pat staying at their hotel. Together they go on a frantic search for Ellie, but Stephanie soon realizes that trusting his seemingly good intentions may drag her farther from the truth. With danger mounting, and time running out, Stephanie must find her friend before darkness falls.

  2. Ed Harris looks pretty awesome in that photo. And I don't always love Urban, but he was perfect as Eomer!

  7. Hi DEZMOND - Ah, Monday. The trailer does look cliche, but kinda of sick-back-with-a-bowl-of-popcorn-and-just-enjoy, fun too. Until the scary parts and then I'd toss the popcorn. LOL

    @Shells
    hope nobody will be harmed by the popcorn :)

    @Clarissa
    Yes, Colin has gone missing from big blockbusters. ALEXANDER brought his end in a way.

  13. That Karl Urban flick does look pretty cliched, but The Way Back sounds pretty interesting. I love "Tastes like chicken" "Ya, a black poisonous chicken with no legs." Frigin brilliant.

  15. YOWZA, Karl in that poster is so fiiiiine... be still my heart! But I despise horror flicks so I'll pass on this one. Karl, please do a romantic/thriller/drama will ya?? I'd even watch Judge Dredd even though I won't be able to see his gorgeous mug the entire time :(

  18. ...Way Back and ...Darkness both sound like interesting films. No fantasy or superheroes, just real life adventure.

    yes, Flixy, I'm not sure why our dearest Karl keeps getting horror roles when he is so capable of doing big big things. And who knows, maybe there will be some hot scene in DREDD to award you for not seeing his face throughout the film :)))

    @Avalon
    be welcome, my dear

    @Ellie
