Check out a cool new poster for crazy medieval comedy YOUR HIGHNESS, which is coming to cinemas this April. In this hilarious epic adventure Danny McBride and James Franco team up as two brothers and princes on a daring mission to save the heir's fiancée (Zooey Deschanel) before their kingdom is destroyed by an evil wizard (Justin Theroux). On their quest they have a little help from an amazon female warrior (Natalie Portman). As you remember the trailer for the film was super hilarious.
SHORT HEADLINES The list of Hollywood remakes continues - the new one will be the remake of DAREDEVIL,  the rather unsuccessful Ben Affleck film from 2003 about a blind super hero dressed in red leather.
The remake will be directed by David Slade (TWILIGHT ECLIPSE) who is also directing THE LAST VOYAGE OF DEMETER with Jude Law and Ben Kingsley. * Check out the first picture of Kate Beckinsale as vampire Selena in the fourth installment of the famous UNDERWORLD saga. UNDERWORLD NEW DAWN should come to cinemas in January 2012. *Hollywood Spy's readers have already said that they love Drew Barrymore's romcoms, and she's doing a new one: she will direct the film adaptation of the popular bestseller HOW TO BE SINGLE by Lizz Tuccillo, about a 38-year-old woman living in New York and searching for love.

HBO has released four new character posters for their epic fantasy series GAME OF THRONES which will finally premiere on Sunday April 17th as one of this year's most expensive new shows. Starring Sean Bean, Marc Addy, Lena Headey ...the exciting show set in luxurious fantastic surroundings will tell the tale of seven noble families fighting to control the mysterious land of Westeros.


  1. I was hoping they would change her a bit in the new installment, but, alas, they didn't.

  2. I really enjoyed Zooey in Tinman - hope this one is good too! :)

  3. Your Highness looks like a hell of a lot of fun. David Slade is directing the Daredevil? That's cool because I did not like the Affleck film. Ben just doesn't seem like a superhero to me. I was hoping they'd give Kate a different look for the 4th film as well.

  4. Kate Beckinsale is one of my favorites! And I actually enjoyed the Underworld franchise.

  5. Game of Thrones is gonna be really good.

  6. These all look good! I'm behind on the Underworld series...catch up the next rainy weekend~

    Your Highness, does look like a good time~

  7. haha, when you reminded me of the daredevil back then, it had me laughed real hard. that movie was seriously lousy. n i remember the red leather! XD game of throne looks so interesting! but i'm not sure i can finish the series. if movie, i'll definitely catch it!

  8. It seems awfully soon to remake a film that was made in 2003. As I recall, I liked the last Daredevil film. Hollywood is running out of ideas.

    Tossing It Out

  9. Le Sigh. I wonder if it's even possible to get HBO in France. Not that I really miss television. Gah. That sounds backwards. We do have TVs here...

  10. Ooo super excited for "Your Highness"!! It has such a great cast. I'm really looking forward to watching Danny McBride. Something about him is so charming to me. I don't know... it's weird. : ) "How to be Single" is also exciting. I love the Barrymore! A little worried about "Daredevil" but there just might be a chance since Kate Beckinsale is kind of a bada**. : )

  11. @Jemi
    must admit I haven't seen that one, this will be the first time for me to watch Zooey :)

    it's interesting that neither Ben nor his wife Jennifer Garner are a super hero material, but yet they both played super heroes. Although she was much much worse than him as Electra. Hollywood is sometimes too strange :)

    I kinda knew Kate would be your favourite, Matty :))


  12. @Jung
    it really is! :) THanks for stopping by ;)

    I haven't seen all of the films either, I saw first two, and haven't seen the third one.

    actually the red leather suit was probably the best part of the film :)))) GAME OF THRONES will have just around 8 or 10 episodes, so you might manage to catch it :)

  13. @Arlee
    eh, SUPERMAN and SPIDERMAN are even "younger" films and Hollywood is rebooting them too :) I'm guessing we shall see an AVATAR reboot in about two or three years :))) Just jokin'

    me am almost certain France will have GAME OF THRONES on one of your channels :)

    you're into McBride???? It is weird, mega weird :)))) But, you're safe with me, I won't tell anyone :))))

  14. I hope they find a good cast for Daredevil, I mean Ben Affleck just isn't convincing at all as a blind superhero. He should just stick to directing more IMO. Not only he looks ridiculous but Colin Farrell just looks like a clown with a target on his head as well.

    The story of Daredevil is actually quite promising, so I hope they'd get a good script and cast someone believable in the role.

  15. I'm looking forward to Your Highness and Game of Thrones. I'm sure my husband will be thrilled to hear a new Underworld is coming out.

  16. @Flixy
    oh, I totally forgot Colin Farrell was in it too :)))) He was stunningly horrible in that role :)
    I shall have a cool DAREDEVIL update tonight after midnight CENTRAL EUROPEAN TIME :0

    I wonder what he will be thrilled about :)))

  17. Oh dear god! Any thing will be better than the original Daredevil! I bought that movie, and after I watched it I let my cat have its way with it o.O

  18. Dezzy - Yeah for the new Underworld movie. Love Kate in this role. =D

  19. @Falsy
    aha ha ha ... Falsy, I swear, one of these days you will seriously kill me :))) Hope the cat didn't have devils in her after it ;)

    hey, don't forget to come back in an hour or so, there will be one of your favourite young actors mentioned in the new post :)

  20. Glad you like the news, Diana ;)

  21. okay I'm losing my mind.. I thought I commented on this already... I must have been distracted by a shiny... ooh, look Kate's costume hasn't changed! ;)

  22. new post is scheduled in about five minutes, you may comment on that one too, Lyndy :)))

  23. woot! 8-10 episodes seemed fair. with a little reminder when it finished airing, i would be able to catch it! i'm so afraid of long episodes, though sometimes, i gotta admit, there are good parts in it too. :p

  24. Yep, most of new shows are now made with up to ten episodes, guess it makes it easier for the audience and for the studios :)

  26. Both Daredevil and Elektra were miscast, but it was not the first, and won't be the last time something like that happens. Luckily I didn't care (and still don't) for those characters.

    Game of Thrones posters look nice.

    I'm looking forward to Your Highness. It looks like a lot of fun.

    So, they went with: "If it ain't broken, don't fix it" look/style for Selene in new Underworld.
    I liked Underworld films. I can't say anything bad about third one, except that it was totally predictable (as expected).
    I don't like the fact that Scott Speedman isn't in this film, but despite that I hope that script is still interesting, and believable

  27. It's interesting that in ELECTRA I adored everybody in the cast except the lead role.
    GAME OF THRONES will be broadcast at our HBO too, Bels later in April if you wanna watch it that way :)
