TRAILER FOR NICOLE KIDMAN'S & CLIVE OWEN'S "HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN"! AMY ADAMS IS "OBJECT OF BEAUTY"! J.J. ABRAM'S NEW SF SHOW "REVOLUTION"! "THE WEIGHT OF HEART" WITH JOHN MALKOVICH

 Beside a number of serious roles, and the big blockbuster one in MAN OF STEEL, next to Henry Cavill's Superman, adorable Amy Adams will have a fun and romantic one too: according to "The Hollywood
Reporter" she will take the lead role in the movie adaptation of Steve Martin's book OBJECT OF BEAUTY. The novel of the famous actor and writer follows an art entrepreneur over 15 years of her life, as she acquires her own gallery, travels the world and tangles romantically with a series of men, including one who becomes a famous artist. After Angelina Jolie's horrid film IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY which was filled with ignorant stereotypes of Serbs being killers and rapists, a new project will show that the war in Yugoslavia wasn't a black and
white picture. THE WEIGHT OF HEART will be a film about 12 babies who died in Republic of Serbska back in 1992 because USA and other Western countries held an embargo on Serbia and Belgrade couldn't send oxygen to the prematurely born babies in Banja Luka hospital. The names so far connected with the film include John Malkovich, as an American diplomat who repents for supporting the embargo after he sees how many innocent lives it took, and also Goran Visnjic and Paz Vega who will play the director of the hospital. Michael Douglas was supposed to take a role before his health problems became serious.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
One of the new pilots in the avalanche of possible new shows that has hit networks, will be a creative effort of STAR TREK's J.J. Abrams who is, as you know, also a successful TV producer (LOST, FRINGE, ). It will be a high profile sf show called REVOLUTION, ordered for this Fall. In this epic
adventure thriller, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology, computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights, has mysteriously blacked out … forever. According to "Deadline", Kevin Spacey and Corey Stoll will headline the new Netflix show HOUSE OF CARDS which will air later this year with the budget of $100 million for 26 episodes. The series centers on Kevin Spacey's character, Rep. Frank Underwood, the Majority Whip of the House of Representatives. When he gets passed over for Secretary of State, he hatches a plan to take down the new President of the United States. Corey Stoll will portray Rep. Patrick Russo, a womanizing three-term Congressman who gets caught driving drunk with a prostitute. Underwood helps Russo avoid a scandal, but at a high cost.

Are you ready for HBO's epic TV film HEMINGWAY AND GELLHORN, because the first trailer is here and it looks rather great. Scheduled to be aired in May, with Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen in the lead roles, alongside Rodrigo Santoro and David Strathairn,
the film will revolve around the tumultuous romance and subsequent marriage of famous writer Ernest Hemingway (Clive Owen) and up-and-coming war correspondent Martha Gellhorn (Nicole Kidman), following them from their first meeting in Florida, to their trip to Europe while he was writing FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS,
through the Spanish Civil War and beyond. As she grew in reputation and stature, Gellhorn stood toe-to-toe with Hemingway, putting his famous bravado and iconic style to the test. She was also the first woman to ask Hemingway for a divorce
SORRY PEOPLE, most of you managed to see the trailer, but the studio has been taking down the clips around the net. I've posted three videos, but they've all been taken down, I will post a new one as soon as it appears around the net.

  1. I'm first today!!! HBO has some big stars this year. The Hemingway film looks interesting and Kidman is still a pretty lady. I don't see anything new in the storyline for Revolution, but I'll give House of Cards a try. That's a huuuuge budget.

    1. It is, but you would be surprised with how much money they spend on an average show. They usually cost like one huge film, but have dozens of episodes which means more space for adds so it pays off :) I forgot which show had a 40 million dollars pilot episode, but there was such case.

  6. As much as when I see Kidman act, all I see is kidman these days, I think HEMINGWAY AND GELLHORN looks particularly interesting. Maybe because it's about writers ;)

    1. it's true, she was never an expressive actress, she is always herself, reminds me of classic actresses who also didn't have depth, just theatrical appearance.

    2. She was especially good in her early days, but now she just looks the same in everything.

    3. I liked her only in DOGVILLE and she wasn't bad in MOULIN ROUGE, although if you ask me that role was meant for Catherine Zeta Jones :)

  7. Kidman and Jolie, not for me. They haven't made much of anything grand in a long time. Revolution, sorta sounds like Jeremiah, except all tech is toast and the adults didn't die, okay stretching it a bit. But it's been done.

    1. two cold ladies, and both had antiserbian films, for which they should be ashamed of themselves.

  8. I meant to say something about my absolute distaste for Jolie. I can't stand her. Now, I feel better.

    1. people like her, who use real tragic events to create personal marketing around it, are the worst beings ever. She did good things, I can't say she didn't, she did build houses to some refuges and such things, but she also lead negative campaign against Serbs even though she is not aware of it, or maybe she is.

  9. I agree "Hemingway and Gellhorn" looks really good. Clive looks amazing ;D

    Object of Beauty sounds intriguing...Henry will be fab and so won't Amy! The photo of her doesn't look like her to me...I mean it does, but it doesn't.

    1. it is interesting, but Amy has quite a lot of hot pics, I guess people don't see her that way now, but she had sexy pics before :) I love this one because I can feel she smells like lily of the valley on it :)

  10. Oh my God!!! I am in love with Hemingway & Gellhorn. It looks utterly mesmerizing and brilliant. I can't wait to see it.

    Amy is adorable as always and I will watch anything she is in.

  11. The Weight of Heart sounds interesting...I never did see AJ's movie.

    That Corey Stoll looks like he'll be fun to watch. ;)

    As to Ms.Kidman...umm...yeah, getting a wee bit tired of her botoxed face...liked her in the earlier years though.

    1. nobody saw it, it was a huge flop in USA and god bad critics for being superficial and ignorant, with weak dialogues and plot.
      Corey looks adorable, doesn't he?
      Kidman probably eats botox for breakfast :)

    1. I'm glad you haven't heard of Angelina's film, it doesn't deserve to be heard off

    1. it will be a disturbing film, as disturbing as our reality was here when we suffered embargos and American and British bombs falling over our heads and killing our kids.

  17. Amy Adams and Paz Vega...yummy.

    I think HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN will be good. At least, I hope so.

  19. OBJECT OF BEAUTY sounds intriguing, esp. w/ Amy in the lead. So two Hemingway-related items in one post, I really like Corey's portrayal of the famous author in Midnight in Paris. I hadn't heard of this project of Owen playing him on HBO, interesting. Y'know Clive is obviously very handsome but believe it or not, the real Hemingway is even better looking in his younger days.
