DEEPLY STIRRING TRAILER FOR "UNCONDITIONAL" WITH LYNN COLLINS & MICHAEL EALY! "STAR TREK" PRODUCERS TAKE ON "DRAGONOLOGY"! JOSH HOLLOWAY JOINS ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER & SAM WORTHINGTON IN "BREACHER"

Lots of beautiful stories today, my people, starting with STAR TREK producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci taking over the
movie adaptation of fantasy series DRAGONOLOGY. The faux non-fiction books by Dugald A. Steer are based on the notion that dragons actually exist, which was revealed by Victorian era dragonologist Ernest Drake. The story centres on a team of dragonologists who try to stop a nefarious plot where the remaining dragons will be used to kill every human on the planet. The saga has 12 books so far. According to "MovieWeb" Orci and Kurtzman are also overseeing the remakes of VAN HELSING and THE MUMMY over at Universal.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
As "The Hollywood Reporter" writes today, Jon Turteltaub will direct BEACHED, a story about a four-year-old boy who falls overboard during a family trip. The overweight lad is then raised by whales before going on to become an Olympic swimmer. Meanwhile, already hot cast for Arnold Schwarzenegger's action film BREACHER has got even hotter: "Variety" reports that Josh Holloway has joined Sam Worthington, Joe Manganiello and Malin Akerman in the story about a team of corrupt DEA agents who steal millions from a drug cartel, under the guise of a routine raid. While the team thinks they have gotten away with the perfect crime, they start getting knocked off, one by one. Josh Holloway will play Neck, the medic of this shady unit.

  LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL
I have something really really special for you today: a deeply touching and highly enchanting trailer for new drama UNCONDITIONAL which will open up in cinemas September 21st. From the amazing and
haunting music, touching story and utterly refined performance from one of the most talented and impressive actresses of the young generation Lynn Collins (JOHN CARTER, X-MEN WOLVERINE), the trailer promises a really special experience. Lynn Collins stars as Samantha Crawford who is living a storybook life: she's happily married, she lives on a ranch where she keeps her beloved horse, and the stories she's told and illustrated since childhood have become published books. When her husband Billy (Diego Klattenhoff) is killed in a senseless act of violence, Sam loses her faith and her will to live. But a death-defying encounter with two children leads to a reunion with Joe (Michael Ealy), her oldest friend.
As Sam watches Joe care for and love the kids in his under-resourced neighborhood, she begins to realize that no matter life's circumstances, you can always begin your journey back toward unconditional love.

Deeply delightful Lynn Collins had first amazed us back in 2004 when she played chaste 
Portia in THE MERCHANT OF VENICE next to a stellar cast which included Jeremy Irons, Joseph Fiennes and Al Pacino (in one of his worst performances ever). But her big break was the role of Silverfox in X MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE which lead her to her groundbreaking role of Princess Dejah Thoris this year in mindblowing sf epic JOHN CARTER.

    1. hold your breath, sister :) I wanted to scratch my eyeballs out while watching his horrid acting as Shylock, it was that neurotic, egoistic and irritating :( Thank God, there were Fiennes and Lynn to calm my nerves.

      Delete
    2. Wow, I liked him in it. I like my Shylock a little crazy and neurotic I guess. And I did think Lynn Collins was very good. Didn't recognize her until you said it was the actress from MOV. Unconditional looks like a tearjerker.

    3. I think I never liked his acting, he is always overly selfcentred and never plays the character but himself. I'd love to see Hopkins in that role.

      UNCONDITIONAL seems like something we will remember for a long time after watching it

    1. that drew my attention too. You know that there is a secret rule in Hollywood not to mix races in romantic films, because they say the audience doesn't like it :( but I adore Lynn and Michael as a couple.

  13. The Dragonology series has always interested me, so I'm glad that there's going to be a big screen adaptation too! Hopefully as it's a Victorian set book, we might get a smattering of steampunk :)

    1. yep, we might see some steampunk since it is Victorian!

  14. I've not read the Dragonology series and have only been peripherally aware of it. But I do love a dragon tale and would like to check this out.

    Unconditional looks like it will take you through so many emotions and very real ones at that. Yes, I think this one will be very much worth the watch. Looks excellent.

    1. as far as I got it, those are children's books, so I guess that's why they are not so widely famous, although they did sell in about 3 million copies, methinks.

      I'm very happy to have found UNCONDITIONAL trailer.

  15. I started off this comment with "That guy looks JUST like Josh Holloway!!!". Good thing I took a second look to realize that it is him. He's hard to recognize without those killer abs showing ;) Yum!

  16. Dragonology seems like it'd be the movie for me! Also wanna see a The Mummy remake!! (hopefully more like the original and less like the one from the 90s!!)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. oh, no, Berserc, the ones from the 90's are my fave films ever :)
      But the remake will be according to your wishes, more like the classic one.

  17. I usually love 'raised in nature' stories...
    raised by apes - cool
    raised by wolves - check
    raised by whales - what now?

    ...and because it seems slightly ludicrous I'll have to see it and I bet it will be awesome.

    1. that was my first response too, G :) Wonder where he slept, while being raised by whales :)
