THE PLOT FOR 2ND SEASON OF "THE BORGIAS"! GREAT TRAILER FOR GEOFFREY RUSH' "THE EYE OF THE STORM"! ADAM BRODY IN "SOME GIRLS" & "WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE". "THE WALKING DEAD" 3RD SEASON TO HAVE 16 EPISODES!

One of the films a lot of you were mesmerized with when I posted the trailer last year at HOLLYWOOD SPY's Facebook page,THE EYE OF
THE STORM
with Geoffrey Rush has found a distributor for USA where it will be released in April. With quite a powerful cast which also includes other two thespians Charlotte Rampling and Judy Davis alongside SPARTACUS: GODS OF ARENA hunky star Dustin Clare, this interesting and powerful drama is actually a movie adaptation of the 1973 literary classic by Australia's only Nobel Prize-winner for Literature, Patrick White. It centres around Elizabeth Hunter who controls all in her life - society, her staff, her children; but the once great
beauty will now determine her most defiant act as she chooses her time to die. THE EYE OF THE STORM is a savage exploration of the family relationships — and the sharp undercurrents of love and hate, comedy and tragedy — which define them. It is interesting that the movie has already won awards at Melbourne and Rome film festivals and has amazing 12 nominations for the upcoming Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts awards for 2012! Check out the brilliant trailer! 
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
One of our fave movie geeks, always charming Adam Brody has just got himself two lead roles as "Variety" reports: he will star in Neil LaBute's SOME GIRLS, as a successful writer who, before getting
married, decides to travel across the country to meet his five ex-girlfriends in a series of hotel rooms. He will then also star in WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE which will follow a group of staffers at a design firm who go on an office retreat to a tropical island, where total chaos erupts after they become stranded. Jean Claude Van Damme will play their power-hungry leader. Adam has also joined LOVELACE in which he will play an X-rated actor next to Amanda Seyfreid as Linda Lovelace. The adorkable actor is also everybody's favourite choice for the role of THE FLASH if that film ever happens. According to latest news, AMC's hit show THE WALKING DEAD, which continues airing February 12th, will have 16 episodes in its third season next year! I'm still not sure whether I will continue watching it or not after they've crossed some lines with an explicit killing of a little girl in the December semi-finale!

Showtime has revealed what will happen in the second season of their   best viewing THE BORGIAS show when it premieres with its second season   April 8th. It will see Pope Rodrigo (Jeremy Irons) seeking to   consolidate his power and enlisting his family to take an oath of   revenge on the great noble houses that dared to stand against him,
  causing his Papacy to face political turmoil once again. But Rodrigo's   real problems lie with his children, all of whom are growing up and   defying his authority. Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger) forges an unlikely   alliance between Vanozza and Giulia, and together they plot to battle   Vatican corruption. The sibling rivalry between Cesare (Francois Arnaud)   and Juan (David Oakes) will soon turn to hatred as their father's   unwavering favoritism toward Juan triggers Cesare to engage his dark   side. Elsewhere in Rome, Rodrigo's old enemy Della Rovere (Colm Feore)   has entered the city incognito and conspires to assassinate him. With   more than 3 million viewers every week, THE BORGIAS had higher ratings   even than THE TUDORS in its first season.

  2. Whoa!! Both of these trailers look good. And I love the plots for both, especially the season of the Borgias. Deadly games afoot. ;)

    1. hope they will keep up the dynamic pace of the second part of the first season and not the boring one from the beginning. And hope they will focus more on the kids and less on the boring pope :)

  3. I can't wait for The Borgais to return. One of my guilty pleasures. Of course, I CAN'T wait for Game of Thrones to return.

    1. if they don't get a stupid idea of pausing the show in the middle like this year.

  5. I love the Walking Dead, and I hope that AMC spends a little more money so that we can have more walkers per episode. The first part of season 2 didn't have a high body count per episode and was mostly drama of looking for Sophia and waiting for Carl to get better.

    1. as far as I remember they said the third season will be even cheaper and most scenes will be shot inside to save the money, so I'm guessing there will not be more walkers.

      Delete
  6. More episodes and cheaper budget, yeah that makes sense. Idiots! The Flash prob will get made at some point.

    1. Yep, and shooting inside even though the exterior scenes were the most popular.
      Keeping fingers crossed for THE FLASH and Adam in the lead role :)

  10. "The Eye of the Storm" looks fantastic! Can hardly wait to see it!

  11. The Eye of the Storm looks magnificent. Adam Brody, not so much. This is a tired storyline. I still haven't seen Season 1 of the Borgia's but it's on my list of things to catch up on this year.

  12. Sorry I haven't been around in a while Dezzy. I've been reading the posts, but the comment box comes up this huge blank screen. Weird.

    I got in using my son's computer, and the Firefox browser. Oh, this is gonna hurt if I have to switch . .

    Thanks for the news updates :)

    1. yep, you MUST switch to Firefox, not just for this but because IE is ancient and also not that safe. Firefox is very easy to get used to, don't be afraid.

  15. I really need to catch up with the second season of Walking Dead. The first had me hooked.

    1. The second season was strange, not bad, but strange, not so dynamic and too much focus on unpopular characters.

      Delete
  16. I too was very shocked by the plot line in The Walking Dead. But I am invested now and will definitely watch season3

    1. I'm still not sure whether to continue watching it or not. I think such things are very dangerous to the whole society, because once you make things like explicitly killing a child not a taboo anymore, it can easily become something that some viewers will find fun and entertaining. Just as it happen with too much open violence in films making people less sensitive to seeing violence and accepting it in real life as well.

  17. Wasn't that keen on the Borgias and The Walking Dead has lost it's initial shine....

    1. first five episodes were dreadfully boring, but after episode 6 it was nice and dynamic and interesting.
      I loved THE TUDORS. One of the best of the epic shows ever.

  21. Love the dresses for The Borgias. They remind me of the romance novels I used to read as a teen (I'd sneak them from my mom). Adam Brody is gorgeous.

    1. it's wouldn't be a bad show, it would be one of the best out there, but they are crossing some lines...

  24. The Eye movie looks wonderful. Rush is one of my favourite actors. It's be one I look for.

    ReplyDelete
  25. One of the better White novels readily adapted to film - and Fred Schepisi is the perfect one to direct it. Rush you know will be brilliant but how good is it to see the great Judy Davis back again and Charlotte Rampling - yet another brilliant actor - what a cast! This is Aussie film making at its very best (which is very good indeed). The film industry here has had a few problems of late - its very difficult to get these sort of films made so this is just the sort of classy tonic it needs! Can't wait!

    1. agreed, all of my favourite actors are Australian (Blanchett, Toni Collette, Jackman just to mention a few), and films too! Love Australian dramas which always have heart and soul.
