THRILLING TRAILER FOR "RE5IDENT EVIL RETRIBUTION"! LIV TYLER HAS "THE SIDE EFFECT"! CW MAKING "THE CARRIE DIARIES" & "BEAUTY AND THE BEAST" SHOWS!

Well, it seems that beside Sandra Bullock who will be alone in space in GRAVITY, another famous brunette will wander the galaxy all alone: according to "Deadline" Liv Tyler (what has happened to her after
LOTR?), has accepted the lead role in THE SIDE EFFECT, a sf thriller in which the story centers on Liv Tyler's character, Catherine Rigby, who spends several months alone in space, to test a pharmaceutical company's new drugs. When she somehow becomes pregnant, paranoia sets in as Catherine begins to think she may be stranded in space. The film is planned for 2014. Talented director Richard Curtis who gave us one of the most beloved films ever LOVE ACTUALLY and who helped Steven Spielberg to write his WAR HORSE, will also go sf in a secretive project called ABOUT TIME which will deal with time travel according to "The Hollywood Reporter".

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Beside the new show on DC's superhero GREEN ARROW, which I announced earlier this week, CW has greenlit another two pilots:
both will be for the ladies. THE CARRIE DIARIES, which is a SEX AND THE CITY spin-off since it will be based on the bestselling book by Candace Bushnell written as a prequel to famous SEX AND THE CITY, in which we follow Carrie Bradshaw in her early days while she was still in her high school and not in New York. It will be produced by GOSSIP GIRL producers. The second project is one I've already announced last year - BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, a kind of a remake of the 80's show with Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman, which followed the story of a beast-man who lived beneath New York City and, through a psychic bond, developed a relationship with a lovely attorney in the city.

I swear I thought this was the 13th or the 17th part, but judging from the 5 in the title it's the fifth part of the famous horror franchise which earned around $700 million so far: here's the first thrilling trailer for RE5IDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION which hits cinemas this September with the following plot: The Umbrella Corporation's deadly
T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race's last and only hope, Alice (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella's most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a
chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.

  1. A story about a character who spends months alone in space and somehow becomes pregnant? Well, it should be interesting to see how they pull that one off.

    2. Ugh...I hope this isn't going to be an allegory about Jesus' birth. You know...the whole virgin birth thing... That would just be...bad.

  3. They are really milking Sex in the city for all it's worth geez, just let it die already.

    Resident Evil is the same old same old each time, big bad zombies trap them, have to escape, big bad zombies break through, have to fight, saved, que ending to set up next movie..haha...but they are okay for a watch I guess.

    1. no, it can't die, we love it too much :))
      The only problem is that Carrie is the least likeable character, and the show will center only on her.

  4. I have hated every single Resident Evil movie that I have ever seen. That actress in the lead is awful. The trailer is clever, but the fact that they spent half of the time for the trailer trying to mislead the audience into thinking it is something else just tells me that their show is probably crap and they would like to hide that from ticket purchasers.

    1. Milla really is one of the worst actresses ever. Watching her in dramas is sometimes very painful (like JOAN OF ARC). She is lucky to have had directors for boyfriends who were giving her roles.

  5. Resident Evil looks ok, like the previous entries.

  6. I love Res Evil and am happy, happy that there is another installment. Love my Alice and love my zombies. ;)

    Liv Tyler needs more interesting projects. I can't believe the films she's made since LOTR.

    1. not just since, but before LOTR as well, that was her only memorable role for some reason. Maybe starring in Aerosmith's videos is a curse, since the same happened to Alicia Silverstone :)

  8. The RE movies just seem to be getting bigger and less believable - I liked the smaller scale of the video games (a house, a town, a vilage etc). These massive scale blockbuster action-y types don't do the franchise any favours.

  11. ok- i think i'll choose the liv tyler lost in space over the sandra bullock one, because seriously, i'll only watch one of those... and i wanna see how she got knocked up.

    hmmm... maybe for b&b and the carrie diaries, but i've never watched sex in the city, and that old b&b was just terrible... but i like to try to keep up on the YA and see what's selling in the market.

    and Resident Evil... i saw one of those... i think that's probably enough.

    1. it's an impossible plot, isn't it :)
      How is it possible that you've never watched SEX AND THE CITY, I think you would love it a writer, it is extremely inspiring and also very funny in a very intelligent way.

  12. I don't think I like Resident Evil enough, to stomach watching it.

  13. Yay for more RESIDENT EVIL!! I'd rather see Sandra Bullock alone in space than Live Tyler. Sorry, vic.

    1. yep, sorry, Vic, I'm also more for Sandra, especially now that RDJ isn't in the cast any longer.

  14. No, please.... not ANOTHER prequel! Carrie, how young you look! Sex in the City Prequel... 'The Search for More Money.' Now who said that, Dez?

  16. Been a while since I saw Liv Tyler in anything but she's lovely. I'm not a fan of SEX AND THE CITY or RESIDENT EVIL movies though, Dezzy.

    1. I thought about it and I think I can understand why you're not a fan of SEX AND THE CITY, but I hope you watched at least some of the episodes.
      Yep, Liv hasn't done anything before or after LOTR, she needs a role if she is to survive in Hollywood
