TRAILERS FOR "PEOPLE LIKE US" WITH CHRIS PINE, ELIZABETH BANKS, OLIVIA WILDE, MICHELLE PFEIFFER & "THINK LIKE A MAN" COMEDY! CALLAN MULVEY JOINS "300: BATTLE AT ARTEMISIA"

It's a very slow day today in the film news world, people, so I only have two trailers for smaller films to show you today. The first one is for DreamWorks
Pictures drama PEOPLE LIKE US (previously known as WELCOME TO THE PEOPLE), a story about family, inspired by true events, starring Chris Pine as Sam, a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, whose latest deal collapses on the day he learns that his father has suddenly died. Against his wishes, Sam is called home, where he must put his father's estate in order and reconnect with his estranged family. In the course of fulfilling his father's last wishes, Sam uncovers a startling secret that turns his entire world upside down: He has a 30-year-old sister Frankie (Elizabeth Banks) whom he never knew about. As their relationship develops, Sam is forced to rethink everything he thought he knew about this family, and re-examine his own life choices in the process. The cast also includes Olivia Wilde and Michelle Pfeiffer and the film hits cinemas this June.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
You know that HOLLYWOOD SPY is excited about the 300 prequel 300: BATTLE OF ARTEMISIA which will go back ten years in the
past describing the rise of Persian king Xerxes and his battle against Greeks at Artemisia. As you know Australian hunk Sullivan Stapleton has been cast as the Greek general Themistocles, while Eva Green will probably take the role of the evil sorceress Artemisia who convinces Xerxes to go into battle. Rodrigo Santoro will probably return as Xerxes and the new addition to the cast is Australian hunk Callan Mulvey whom my readers from Down Under and a lot of those in Europe remember from our teen years when we watched him as Drazic in famous teen series HEARTBREAK HIGH (which unlike most US teen shows, wasn't crappy nor superficial, but it followed tough life and real problems of kids alienated in today's world).

The second trailer is for THINK LIKE A MAN, a delightful comedy based on Steve Harvey’s best-selling book "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man" in which
the story follows four interconnected and diverse men whose love lives are shaken up after the ladies they are pursuing buy Harvey’s book and start taking his advice to heart. When the band of brothers realize they have been betrayed by one of their own, they conspire using the book’s insider information to turn the tables and teach the women a lesson of their own. The cast stars Taraji P. Henson, Morris Chestnut, Arielle Kebbel and always delightful Chris Brown... but it is interesting that the soundtrack to the movie will gather all the biggest r'n'b stars from Ne Yo and Keri Hilson to Luther Vandross, Kelly Rowland, Jennifer Hudson and John Legend.

    1. yep, the ladies in the film are lovely and very believable but Chris Pine is a bit unappealing in a dramatic role.

    1. he does have pretty eyes, too bad he is a bit stiff and cold. He will be good as Jack Ryan in the new action franchise.

  6. Think like a man does look like it be a fun watch. People like us might be okay, I don't really like Pine's acting though but that could just be me.

    1. it's not just you, Pats, Chris is extremely cold and rather unappealing, especially in these kind of roles. He is good for playing cocky men, but not for emotional roles.

    2. Yeah I watched one about Wine making with him in it, forget title at the moment, it was an okay movie but it was cold throughout it when he shouldn't have been.

      Oh and Anne says she can't comment, just so you know.

  7. I know Pine's not a "meaty actor", but he did do a good job as Kirk in Star Trek (I thought so), but I'm not sure about this film. I like the idea of it, but it has a bit of a generic look to it.

    Think Like A Man looks like a good old fashioned comedy and sometimes that's the best kind of movie to see. Men getting "the inside track" on women, now that's funny.

    1. he was good, although I don't like cocky Kirk :) I much preferred Zachary Quinto, John Cho and my own Karl Urban who was utterly flawless as DOctor :)

  9. A 300 sequel seems like such a cashin...

  10. Why are you excited about this prequel, Dezzy? I've yet to come across a prequel that's better than the original. Who knows, maybe Alien will be outdone by Mr Scott himself.

  14. There are parts that I find interesting in both film. Neither I would run out to see. However... the 300 prequel, that I'd see.
