EPIC TRAILER FOR "LEGENDARY AMAZONS"! JULIETTE BINOCHE IN "A MONKEY ON MY SHOULDER", JEREMY IRONS IN "A NIGHT TRAIN TO LISBON"! VAMPIRES ATTACK "IN THE DUST" CLOUDS!

First some film news from Europe. According to "ScreenDaily" Juliette Binoche and Edgar Ramirez (he is playing Ares in CLASH OF THE TITANS II) will team up in A MONKEY ON MY
SHOULDER
, a strange drama which will see them as two top surgeons, one from France, the other hailing from South America, who will be drawn into a love triangle with an unexpected pregnancy and an adventure down in Amazon. The same source has a report on A NIGHT TRAIN TO LISBON, a Bille August film with Jeremy Irons, Christopher Lee, Vanessa Redgrave, Lena Olin ...about a Swiss Professor, who, after saving a beautiful Portuguese woman from leaping to her death, stumbles on a mysterious book that convinces him he should leave academia behind and travel to Lisbon. In search of the author, he acts as detective, pulling together pieces of the personal and political puzzle.
HOLLYWOOD SPY DAILY HEADLINES
Top Cow will have another of their comics adapted into a film. This time it will be IN THE DUST, a graphic novel yet to be released
which follows a federal agent in the 1930s, who is investigating the bizarre disappearances of entire families during Midwestern dust storms. The agent discovers an army of vampires, who use the Dust Bowl as cover to feed on innocent families. When the vampires move to Chicago, he must team up with former members of Al Capone's gang to save the Windy City. Always cute Mandy Moore will take the lead in ABC's new sitcom US AND THEM which explores the inherent conflict that exists between the families you grow up in and the ones we make as adults and is told from the perspective of a young, newlywed couple.

You remember how earlier this year, I posted some breathtaking posters for THE LADY GENERALS OF YANG FAMILY Chinese epic? Well, I now have the first trailer for the film which changed its title into LEGENDARY AMAZONS. Hitting Chinese
cinemas next month it is set in the period of the Northern Song Dynasty, when the emperor neglected the political affairs, hence rolling border war. The war brought times of hardship upon the Xia country. Enemies invaded the Song's territory forcefully and all the male members of The Yang family were slaughtered. Unable to tolerate the pain and suffering, Mu Guiying, the wife of General Yang Zongbao decided to organize the Yangs's widows and lead them into the battle against their enemies... This lavish Asian epic produced by Jackie Chan, will feature lots of different female characters from the Yang family including their 100 year old Yang matriarch, and her daughters some of which are extremely wise, some know how to use a  halberd, some are superb archers, some possess occult powers, some use embroidery needle as hidden weapon, some always have some inventive solutions
 AND DON'T FORGET THAT LATER ON TODAY I WILL BE POSTING AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH  
KYLE PRYOR
FROM "SPARTACUS" AND "LEGEND OF THE SEEKER"

  1. That poster for Legendary Amazons really is stunning. The clip was okay. It was hard to read the captions, but I'd probably watch it.

  2. I believe that's the first international trailer I've watched in quite some time, looks interesting.

    as far as I got it, that was kind of a teaser, so I hope we shall get a longer, edited in production, trailer :) I'm not sure how it works in China, since the film is out in a month time and no big trailers so far. But then, again, here in Serbia we don't even have trailers for most of the films

    @Pat
    it is? Hold onto us then, I often post Asian trailers and even some Serbian ones :) And you've seen that Dutch trailer here a few days ago

  4. Night Train and Monkey sound like keepers.
    Love the poster - minus the title. The trailer is awesome. I just don't get the Amazon thing.

  6. LEGENDARY AMAZONS certainly does look lavish. It's a shame I miss half the visuals by reading the subtitles.

  7. I will watch anything with Juliette Binoche. She is the nicest person I have ever met in my life. So sweet and stunningly beautiful.

  10. Okay, I just watched PRIEST and now the premise for the movie IN THE DUST makes complete sense. :P

  11. I am still quivering at the thought of a second outing of clash and the titans!!

  12. Great trailer, a little more bloody than normal for these movies...more realistic which is never a bad thing.

    he he ... you in English speaking countries are a bit spoiled :) since most of the films are in English. Here in my country we watch all films with subtitles and are used to it :)

    @Josh
    you met her? She is one of those actresses which cannot be put into any category. She can't play seductresses and sexy ladies since she isn't gorgeous enough, and she can't play poor suffering women because she isn't plane enough. I loved her in CHOCOLATE and she spoke perfect Serbian in BREAKING AND ENTERING with Jude Law

    Mandy is a cutie, I wish she would sing more too, I loved her and Hilary Duff. She is also very pretty and was nice next to Kellan Lutz in a romcom this summer

    @Edmund
    don't forget to take me with you on that trip if you decide to do it, I've never seen Portugal!

    he he ... and did you like PRIEST? I liked the trashy aspect of it :), the actors were all flawless (MAggie, Karl, Paul, Gigandet, Plummer...) and the visuals were amazing. I wish it lasted 20 minutes longer because it would cover all its gaps and weak spots

    @Adam
    she is indeed, and from the previous experience I know that my boys like this picture of her ;)

    oh, please, Scottie, the first wasn't at all that bad as fanboys wanted it to be even before they've seen it :( The second will have a different director and even different actors (except Sam Worthington off course). It should be great.

    @Lurk
    I hope we will get a better trailer before the movie is released, this is the first one that I found at YouTube.

  17. mandy moore is always so charming! that show might be really cute!

  18. Yeah, it wasn't the most cerebral movie, but it was a fun hour and a half. And I winced at a lot of the dialogue, yet I was strangely entertained. :)

    I do love Karl Urban and Paul Bettany.

  19. @Vics
    she is ever so charming, isn't she?

    @Luanne
    I wish there was more of Karl in the film, wasn't he the best of vampires ever? :) And you had a look at Lily Collins, who is next starring in SNOW WHITE :)

  20. I'm so far behind. Legendary Amazons looks epic and I can't wait til it's available here. In the Dust sounds phenomenal, then again you know how I love my monsters. Now if we could just get a new werewolf movie...:)

  21. The legend of the Amazons is the only one that interest me
