ANNE HATHAWAY IN "SONG ONE"! CLIVE BARKER PENS "ZOMBIES VS GLADIATORS"! "TWILIGHT ZONE" MOVIE! GREAT NEW TRAILER FOR "ARROW" TV SHOW

You've probably seen LES MISERABLES trailer last week with Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Eddie Redmayne, and were probably amazed by a haunting song that Anne Hathaway sings in it. We all knew she could sing since her singing was the only good thing in that tragic Oscar year when she had the misfortune to host the ceremony with that uncaught brat James Franco. And, now, according to "Variety" she will also star in SONG ONE in which the story centres on a young woman who returns home after her brother is injured, only to meet and romantically connect with his favourite musician, who draws inspiration from the siblings. Before that, Anne will meow her lungs out in that horrid dark film I refuse to mention at this site.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
The only horror stories I've ever enjoyed reading were the ones by Clive Barker, and now it seems he has been hired to pen ZOMBIES
 VS GLADIATORS which is based in ancient Rome as the story opens with a shaman who is about to die in the Coliseum so he casts a spell that unleashes the world's first zombies. It's up to a gladiator to stop the spread of the zombie horde and save Rome. Speaking of horrors, famous THE TWILIGHT ZONE is also closer to its movie adaptation since a writer has been hired to pen it. Unlike the original film which had four storylines, this one will follow a single storyline and use classic elements from Rod Serling's original TV series.

 NEW ARROW TRAILER
Are you excited about CW's new super hero show ARROW which is ready to air this October? They've just released a brand new trailer for it, and it is much better than the previous ones giving the first look of Deathstroke, the
 main villain, and giving lots of naked scenes with hunky Stephen Amell who portrays the main hero. It follows  billionaire Oliver Queen who is discovered alive on a remote island five years after his shipwreck. When he returns home to Starling City, his mother Moira, and his friends welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by the ordeal. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he's become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was by seeking reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of ARROW to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree philanderer he used to be while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel's father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver's own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.

  3. Anne Hathaway - another overplayed actress. She is good-looking but not princess , rawtalent kind. Anyway, I liked her doing the oscar show, atleast she tried James Francos drag pink dress is still hauthing me.

    Another zombie, gladiator? Can we all get a break? Arrow seems to be interesting though superhero series maybe I could give a try I guess..

    1. I had a collection of his horror stories, forgot the name... but those were some truly creative stories.

      Delete
    2. I haven't read any of his books, I've only watched the movies. Hmmm, now you make me want to buy the books...

      Delete
    3. I had three or four books of his horror stories, and they were really horrific.

  5. I can't figure out the appeal of Anne Hathaway, to be honest. She's cute in light comedies, but she seems to go for a lot of darker roles that don't suit her well, IMO.

    Yay Arrow. Who cares what it's about, I may just watch with the sound off anyway. :P

    1. I can't either. I think she has connections in Hollywood, I still remember how while back she was in a long relationship with an Albanian mobster :(

  7. The trailer doesn't look half bad, at least looks better than that awful Cape show from a while back hahaha, then that doesn't take much. Zombies and Gladiators should be interesting, as I like anything zombie.

  11. Zombies vs gladiators... Now all we need is a bunch of aliens from a pyramid hidden in the ice and a couple of predators to make this a really good movie. The Twilight Zone... I remember that series. Been a while, though.

    P.S. How are you feeling, Dezzy?

    1. better, thanks, they pulled out a 10 cm drainage tube out of my chest today, it was a memorable experience :))

    2. That doesn't sound good at at, Dezzy. Are you in much pain?

      Delete
    3. See, now I'm so worried, I can't even type. I hope it doesn't hurt too much.

    4. it was more of an unpleasant feeling than pain and I'm a resilient kind :) I can survive pretty much anything (not counting a visit to Britney Spears concert, which I wouldn't survive at all)

  14. Zombies vs Gladiators! What is the worlds obsession with zombies here lately? Everywhere I go, every blog I visit, there is a reference to zombies!

    Anne Hathaway can sing herself right into my bedroom! She would be most welcome there, even with the Mrs WD!

  16. I wonder if arrow will be the next smallville?

  17. Hey Dez, hope you're feeling much better.

    As I'm zombied out, I'm not enthused about more zombie crap, but I'm sure others will disagree. When they started doing movies like Lincoln Vampire Hunter, I started losing interest in most of those types of disasters.

    I understand your need to not name the Dark movie. I had high hopes until they announced that bimbo as the feline, but now I have very low expectations.

    I'm cautiously optimistic about Arrow though. While usually superhero tv shows tend to suck IMHO, I am trying to remain hopeful. Of course, I was not a fan of Smallville so that should give you an idea of my expectations. Still, I suppose they could maybe do it right for once.

    1. I wasn't a fan of Boreville either :) Gorgeous people in it, but deadly boring stories....

  18. Several years ago a stage director friend of mine whom I respect came down hard on Anne Hathaway's acting. After seeing so much of her..., I have to admit that, yup, I like her. Like her acting. Frankly, I'll see something if I know she's in it.

    1. I don't like her acting either, except in romcoms, she's cute in those, but not a star material, definitely.

  19. I'm so so late, darling, but I got immensely busy. Hope you didn't think I forgot about you. :)

    Arrow's new trailer looks really good compared to the other one. And yes, more clothing optional scenes for that man. ;))

    Zombies vs. Gladiators? Right up my alley. And Clive is a master so it will be great.
