EPIC WEDNESDAY: AMAZING PICS FROM "THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY" 2013 CALENDAR! ED SKREIN & JACOB ANDERSON IN "GAME OF THRONES"! STUNNING CLIP FROM "PAINTED SKIN: RESSURECTION" FANTASY EPIC!

In the TV news from the epic genre two new actors have joined the third season of HBO's popular fantasy show GAME OF THRONES which
 is currently being shot in Ireland, Croatia and Iceland. Young actor Ed Skrein will play Daario Naharis, the captain of the mercenary group Stormcrows according to "Winter Is Coming", while Jacob Anderson, whom we've seen previously in Showtime's EPISODES will portray Grey Worm, who is the leader of slave soldiers the Unsullied. Meanwhile, ABC is planning FINN & SAWYER drama, which will see two literary characters Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn teaming up in their 20s to form an investigative firm in New Orleans, according to "The Hollywood Reporter".

THE HOBBIT CALENDAR 2013
Your main treat for today are freshly released pictures from THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY 2013 Wall Calendar. According to "MovieWeb" this calendar (click on the pics to see them
 bigger), which won't be in stores until October, features the map of Thror, all of the dwarves, Elrond, Galadriel, Legolas, Gandalf, Bilbo, and a first look at Radagast the Brown. There is also a special edition calender available that consists of four scrolls, each containing three months per scroll. As you know, the most anticipated epic film of the year should arrive to cinemas this December starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellan, Richard Armitage, Cate Blanchett, Aiden Turner, Benedict Cumberbatch (he gives voice to fire dragon Smaug who will apparently appear in the end of the first part)... while Luke Evans, Lee
Pace and Evangeline Lilly will probably be seen in the second part scheduled for 2013. I've recently reported that Peter Jackson has decided to make the third part as well, which will probably hit cinemas in 2014. 

PAINTED SKIN CLIP
 And to end today's post in epic style, check out an amazingly epic clip from fantasy film PAINTED SKIN: THE RESSURECTION. I've shown you the official trailer before, which was mesmerizing itself, but this is a rather magnificent scene from the film which should hit cinemas this
 month. According to ancient lore, if a human freely offers their heart to a demon, that monster can become mortal, experiencing the true pains and passions of existence. This is the ultimate triumph of the underworld. Xiaowei (Xun Zhou from SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE), a millennia-old fox spirit, is freed from her frozen prison and transforms into a dangerous seductress, consuming living hearts to keep her beautiful as she searches for her chance to become human. Meanwhile, Princess Jing (Wei Zhao from RED CLIFF), hiding her marred beauty behind a golden mask, flees from an unknown threat to her kingdom by pursuing the only man she ever loved: the guard who was unable to protect her, so many years ago. A twist of fate brings Princess Jing and Xiaowei together, and a slow game of wits, deceit, and seduction begins for the princess' very own heart.

  3. I’m still not sure how I feel about The Hobbit being broken up into three different parts, but I’m not at all surprised at how awesome these pictures are. Peter Jackson definitely knows what he’s doing and if this trilogy is even half as good as the Lord of the Rings movies, it’ll be worthwhile. Just seeing these photos makes me want to marathon the first three all over again… I’m going to have to add them to my Blockbuster @ Home queue so they’ll show up right in my mailbox. I’m already counting down the days until December.

    1. fingers crossed that the films will be as good as LOTR and not as bad as KING KONG and other of Peter's films were :(
      I'm more excited for the second part when more of other actors will appear in the plot.

  4. A great tease about Game of Thrones...the wait is so long for it! *sigh*

    The pictures for the Hobbit are great. I took a closer look at the one with the entire cast and they look so good; their costumes are fantastic. This is one of those movies the whole family will go see.

  9. I'll definitely be looking to check out the Tom & Huck series. That's an interesting concept indeed. I can see all kinds of possible episodes arising from that.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Cheers.

    1. don't worry, Melsy, GOT isn't all that good. It's actually the weakest epic show for me after CAMELOT and BORGIAS. It being rather mediocre is what makes it so popular among the audience.

  11. Hoping that The Hobbit will be as good as I was expecting. It's three movie for a very thin book...my faith in the movie is fading

  12. You know I want to see the Hobbit films. The wait is driving us all mad out here. And thank you for the pic of Armitage-tasty.

    And as for Painted Skin, after seeing the trailer and seeing this scene, I'm just going to go ahead and buy it as soon as it comes out on DVD. It's going straight into my collection. A visual feast.

    1. ah, I forgot you was into Dicky Armitage, Annzie :)
      PAINTED SKIN really looks like something otherwordly. I have another few Asian flicks to present in the upcoming days, and they are also quite lovely. Gotta use Asian films in this film news draught period.

    2. I love the Asian films. The perspective is so different and the motifs are new to the Western mind. Very stunning graphics usually as well.

    3. yep, they make art out of everything. I might post more of the foreign films in the next period, although I know most people don't like to read it when it's not about an English lg flick ;(

  13. Finn & Sawyer, proof television can't be original to save their lives.

  14. Ok. I saw the Hobbit trailer in 3D the other day (for the second time) and the more I see the more I can not wait for that movie to come out. If I don't get to see it within the first couple of days...well...we aren't going to think about that now...

    Painted Skin looks pretty much incredible. Yep.

    2. LOL, I might put it there after the VIKINGS banner finishes its service :) Those banners were a brilliant idea, every story I put in them has got hundreds and sometimes even thousands of new visits while the banner was up.
