DEEPLY DELIGHTFUL TRAILER FOR DUSTIN HOFFMAN'S "QUARTET" WITH MAGGIE SMITH, BILLY CONNOLLY! STUNNING ARMOR PIC FROM SF EPIC "PACIFIC RIM"! "COMPLIANCE" TRAILER

Oh, do I have a great trailer for you today, my little freaks! It's the first clip for Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut QUARTET. This lovely comedy drama follows Cecily (Pauline Collins), Reggie (Tom Courtenay) and Wilfred (Billy Connolly) who are in a home for retired opera singers. Every year, on October 10, there is a concert to
celebrate Verdi's birthday and they take part. Jean (Maggie Smith), who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their equilibrium. She still acts like a diva, but she refuses to sing. Still, the show must go on... and it does. This delightful drama with enchanting cast should appear in cinemas sometime later this year!

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
 You have already seen the first look of Idris Elba in long awaited sf epic PACIFIC RIM which is set to premiere in about a year, July 2013, but now "Entertainment Weekly" has released an amazing new photo showing Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi in special rather
 mindblowing armors. Directed by Guilermo del Toro, the film will see legions of monstrous alien creatures rising from the seas in order to attack Earth and the massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge and which are used to fight back the aliens.

COMPLIANCE TRAILER
The second trailer for today is for a film which won amazing reviews at Sundance Film Festival this year getting called superb, chillingly brilliant, gripping.
Based on a true story and hitting cinemas this August, COMPLIANCE follows Becky and Sandra who aren't the best of friends. Sandra is a middle-aged manager at a fast-food restaurant; Becky is a teenaged counter girl who really needs the job. One stressful day (too many customers and too little bacon), a police officer calls, accusing Becky of stealing money from a customer's purse, which she vehemently denies. Sandra, overwhelmed by her managerial responsibilities, complies with the officer's orders to detain Becky. This choice begins a nightmare that tragically blurs the lines between expedience and prudence, legality and reason.

  2. Compliance just sent shivers down my spine. Oh my gosh! What a movie and to think it was inspired by true events?! Unreal!! I'm angry and I haven't even seen the movie yet - wow!

    And, for the first time, I was blocked from seeing a trailer because I was in the wrong country =)

    2. Dang! Same thing happened and then I found a trailer for a movie from 1970...the Licorice Quartet. It's supposed to be an erotica but I didn't click on it. The picture looked sleazy LOL

      Hopefully it'll be better for everyone else =)

  7. I like the look of 'Pacific Rim' - Elba is one of my fave Brit actors (how good was he in the US TV series 'The Wire'?) He was great in Prometheus although the part written for him was less convincing than it might have been - his performance was great - the way he nailed Charlize Theron's 'Vickers' character will no doubt become one of those SF classics!

    Yep, will be watching out for Pacific Rim - mosdef!

  8. Compliance sounds like a completely new/different story! I love how they made such an age gap to add to the dynamics of this story. As an ex fast food worker, I'm really interested in seeing this!!! :)

  9. REally? Quartet is blocked in my country? Hmm . .

    Compliance looks like a good stalker movie. I like those.

    And yes "I'm ready for Summer" :) at least In Vivo style.

    Oh, and I read your comment on my blog about correcting your name. I know, it too me long enough. For a long time I just didn't see it. But DezMUND is so unique, lol. And those elephants are no longer your's; I've grown quite attached to them, not the least because they introduced me to you.

    1. LOL, well it was about time for a trailer to be blocked in USA :))Blame it on Dustin...

      Oooh, I bet you danced a bit when the In Vivo song started :PPP

      I do love the elephants and it was nice back in the days when Alex did that project with everybody posting elephant pics for me :) He got the idea when I once told him I was thinking of opening a school of English language which would be called TRAVELLING ELEPHANTS :)

  12. I couldn't get a video of Quartet anywhere darling, but I don't need it as the film is sure to be a good, healthy funny film.

    Onto Compliance. This is sure to spark some interesting and possibly heated conversations after its release. It is absolutely frightening that manager at McDonalds actually stripped searched a girl and had her perform sexual acts in front of a CCTV based on a phone call that was a fake. More than one of these calls happened in the US and the managers complied with the callers request. The phony police officer didn't even demand that the manager do any of this, just asked and the manager complied. The world has gone mad.

    1. LOL, the first trailer blocked in USA :)))) Try to check out the link I left in the comment to Elsie.
      Yep, the world has long ago gone mad and now it is just the peak of it all. The film really was based on a true story.

    2. I know it was and that's the part that is scary. I also have to wonder about the guys that made these phone calls as there was more than one incident of this. But then again it's America and currently they have an increase in cannibalism. And they call other countries barbaric.

    3. not to mention they are one of the few countries in the world with death penalty!

    Compliance looks really chilling and captivating. I've got to see it, especially since it is inspired by true events. Who would do that?
