CALEB LANDRY JONES IN JOHN BOORMAN'S SF ROMANCE "BROKEN DREAM"! "PADDINGTON" BEAR MOVIE! "TEMPLE OF HEAVEN" EPIC ADVENTURE! TRAILER FOR CHINESE EPIC "SACRIFICE"

One of the young actors we find very interesting due to his radiant charisma is young Caleb Landry Jones whom you mostly know by his
role of Banshee in X-MEN FIRST CLASS. According to "Deadline" he will now take the lead role in sf film BROKEN DREAM which is described as a love story set in a futuristic world. It is interesting that famous director John Boorman (EXCALIBUR, BEYOND RANGOON) has been planning to do this project for decades and he apparently spent 20 years looking for the right male lead, after River Phoenix, whom the role was dedicated in the first place, died. John Hurt will play the father of Caleb's character.  Caleb seems to be choosing very unusual projects, since other two of his future projects  ANTIVIRAL and BYZANTIUM also have interestingly weird plots. Bellow you have a very strange clip from ANTIVIRAL.


HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Well, here's something that sounds cute: the first poster for PADDINGTON film which should come out in 2014. The mix of CGI and life action will be based on Michael Bond's popular British
 children's book series from the late 1950s that centered on an immigrant bear from Peru who gets adopted by the English Brown family and is given the name Paddington Brown. As you can see on the poster, one of the producers of the film had worked on HARRY PLOPPER saga as well. Meanwhile Warner Bros. has acquired TEMPLE OF HEAVEN an action adventure project which will have elements of ancient Chinese culture and mythology weaved into it. And good news is that Pixar's amazing animated epic BRAVE has conquered the world this weekend earning amazing $150 million worldwide!

SACRIFICE EPIC TRAILER
And your trailer for today is for a lovely Asian visual treat - new dramatic epic SACRIFICE out this July in USA: A story of epic revenge, SACRIFICE, written and directed by Chen Kaige, focuses
on a power hungry general who wipes out his rival along with his entire family, save for one newborn. The infant is protected by the doctor who delivered him and raises him as his own, hoping to mold him into
 his own instrument of retribution. SACRIFICE stars Ge You (from legendary FAREWELL MY CONCUMBINE) and Wang Xue Qi (FOREVER ENTHRALLED). It is based on "Orphan of Zhao" by Ji
Jun-Xiang and is set during the Yuan Dynasty. It is the first Chinese play known in Europe between the 8th and 5th Century B.C., also known as the Spring and Autumn period in China's history.

  2. I'm definitely excited about seeing what John Boorman comes up with. He's been absent for quite a while. I hope he shows Caleb naked. There needs to be more naked hot guys with low body fat on the screen.

  9. I think the veil on that Chinese actress shows the historical origin of those huge full-face shades that modern Oriental women wear in the summer to avoid the sun!
