HOLLYWOOD SPY'S SPOTLIGHT ON STARS WHO WILL DOMINATE 2011 IN CINEMAS: HELENA BONHAM CARTER, BRUCE WILLIS, CATHERINE ZETA JONES, RALPH FIENNES

Beside Charlize Theron, Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Channing Tatum and other stars mentioned in the first part of HOLLYWOOD SPY'S SPOTLIGHT ON STARS WHO WILL DOMINATE 2012, there are other actors and actresses who will be more than busy this year, so let's hit the second part:
 CATHERINE ZETA JONES
 One of our favourite actresses ever Catherine Zeta Jones will finally come back to the movie world after a very long break (she didn't have any film since 2007) due to her husbands illness and other private
problems, and she will have three big roles: in  LAY THE FAVOURITE next to Bruce Willis as Tulip, a thirty something woman who becomes involved with a group of geeky fiftyish men who have found a way to work the sportsbook system in Las Vegas to their advantage. She will also star in the ROCK OF AGES musical next to Tom Cruise and Alec Baldwin in which she plays a super conservative villain and we shall hear her magnificent singing again, and in PLAYING THE FIELD next to Gerard Butler, a romcom about a former professional athlete with a weak past who tries to redeem himself by coaching his son's soccer team, only to find himself unable to resist when in scoring position with his players' restless and gorgeous moms.
BRUCE WILLIS
Believe it or not, it will not be some young stars who will rule Hollywood this year, but good old and bald (just as we like him), Bruce Willis who will work more than he worked in his best years
with stunning seven films in cinemas in 2012: in the above mentioned LAY THE FAVOURITE, next to Catherine Zeta Jones, in THE COLD LIGHT OF DAY, with Henry Cavill and Sigourney Weaver  about a young American who uncovers a conspiracy during his attempt to save his family, who were kidnapped while on vacation in Spain, in FIRE WITH FIRE, as a fireman who takes an unexpected course of action when he's threatened by a man who he's been ordered to testify against, in MOONRISE KINGDOM, about a pair of lovers who flee their New England town, which causes a local search party to fan out and find them, in GI JOE2: RETALIATION as the original GI Joe Colton, in LOOPER, next to Emily Blunt as cops who go back in time to catch criminals,  and in THE EXPENDABLES 2 with his old action star buddies Sly, Schwarzy, Chuck Norris, Dolph, Jet Li, Van Damme and Jason Statham.  

AMANDA SEYFRIED
Although she's mostly given us roles in some truly horrid (RED RIDING HOOD) or just weak films (MAMMA MIA), she also starred in some heartwarming films (DEAR JOHN, LETTERS TO JULIET) and thus her blue eyed Gorgeousness Amanda Seyfried is still one of the
most wanted young stars in Hollywood and she will have lots of work this year: she will star in THE END OF LOVE, a drama centered on the relationship between a young father and his infant son after the death of the boy's mother, in bad thriller GONE, about a girl who is convinced the serial killer who kidnapped her sister two years ago has returned, and she sets out to once again face her abductor, in THE WEDDING, about a long-divorced couple which fakes being married as their family unites for a wedding, next to Robert de Niro, Katherine Heigl, Robin Williams, Ben Barnes, Diane Keaton, Susan Sarandon and Topher Grace, in LOVELACE as porn star Linda Lovelace, and then in big musical LES MISERABLES as Cossete next to Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Eddie Redmayne.

HELENA BONHAM CARTER
Speaking of our dear queen of craziness and weirdness, Helena Bonham Carter, she will also keep busy this year: beside
the potential role in LES MISERABLES in which she might play Madame Thenardier, she will also appear in another huge classic novel movie adaptation - as peculiar Miss Havisham who helps a little orphan in his life in GREAT EXPECTATIONS next to Ralph Fiennes, Jeremy Irvine and Jason Flemyng. You've already seen her brilliant pic from that one. And since it would be unimaginable for her not to appear in any of her husband's films she will also star in Tim Burton's DARK SHADOWS film adaptation of the classic TV show on the family of monsters in which she plays Dr. Julia Hoffman next to Johhny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer.

RALPH FIENNES
The above mentioned British thespian Ralph Fiennes will also have
lots of work this year after quite successful 2011 in which he directed and starred in critically acclaimed CORIOLANUS. This year he will be James Bond's new nemesis in SKYFALL, he will play a villain in GREAT EXPECTATIONS too as Magwitch, and will then take the role of the biggest villains of them all for the second time in the epic sequel WRATH OF THE TITANS next to Sam Worthington and Liam Neeson in which, as the God of Underworld Hades, he will kidnap his brother Zeus so the poor Perseus will have to go down under to save the King of Gods.
OCTAVIA SPENCER
One of the cutest faces to hit fame last year, delightful Octavia Spencer, who had a breakthrough year with her outstanding performance in THE HELP, will not disappear in 2012 since she has
three nice projects: drama SMASHED with Aaron Paul and Megan Mullally about a married couple whose bond built on a mutual love of alcohol gets their relationship put to the test when the wife decides to get sober. She will also star in THE TRIALS AND TRIBU- LATIONS OF A TRAILER TRASH HOUSEWIFE  which centers on  an abused housewife, her relationships with her friends, and her attempts at liberation. And she will close the year with LOST ON PURPOSE, a film about a woman who fueled by gin and sheer determination runs her dairy farm outside the region's domineering co-ops with the help of five renegade ranch hands.

    1. yep, the old ones are coming back big time, keeping fingers crossed that Wynona Rider doesn't come back :)))
      You would like my baklava, it's a Turkish sweet, and since we were under them for 500 dark and horrid years, one of the very few good things to come out of that is taking over some of their dishes :)

  2. It's great to see Catherine back, I have missed her. And I love Octavia Spencer, she was awesome in the help. Amanda was good in that sci fi In Time. Loved that dark hair. Gave her a much needed edge. And of course, I adore Helena no matter what. ;)

    And we are shoveled out. Yay!! Now you and the penguins can come play.

    1. I missed Cathy terribly, but I'm sad she isn't getting some better and bigger roles, all of these are supporting.
      I'm happy that Octavia won a Globe even though those awards are silly.

      Penguins are busy plotting against Madonna's Golden Globe win, Elton John's paying them :)

    1. it's possible she's over 50 since I remember her since I was a kid LOL
      I will never forget the first time I've met with her weirdness when she was talking in some interview how before the childbirth with Tim Burton's baby she dreamt about giving birth to a plucked chicken for weeks. And did you know she and Tim live in separate houses?

    2. I can't imagine what dinner conversation at one of their houses would be like. And she's younger than I am, so watch it. It's not too late to get my cane out. :PP

  6. Oh these are some good ones. I adore Bruce Willis, he's smart, he's funny, he's tough and he's sexy. And it will be nice to see Catherine again. She looks great in that picture. And Ralph Fiennes, he's done some great work too. And I am partial to the quirky Helena as well.

  8. Bruce Willis was always my favorite actor until recent years when most, if not all, his movies turned to crap. Once Die Hard 4 hit, it was if everything he touched was a load of garbage.

  14. So, the most intriguing parts of this post are the interesting juxtaposition of actors names. Don't get me wrong it is all interesting, I just never thought I'd see some of those name so close to each other.

  17. While the movie itself didn't wasn't that great, i think Amanda gave a rather notable performance in Chloe. I think she just needs to choose some better roles

    1. haven't seen CHLOE, but she is a nice actress and very cute, just need better roles as you said. She should keep working on her romantic actress career, because it suits her lovely,but she also needs some powerful dramas. I don't think LOVELACE is the one for her :(

      Delete
    2. I would personally like to see her get away from rom-coms for a while

  18. I love seeing Ralph keeps getting roles...yaii for Ralph :)

  20. I think this year is Ralph's year. Now that the Potter series is behind him he can open up a little and diversify (coriolanus was epic).
