NEW PICTURES FROM "GREAT EXPECTATIONS" WITH HELENA BONHAM CARTER, RALPH FIENNES! "NOBODY WALKS" TRAILER WITH JOHN KRASINSKI, DYLAN MCDERMOTT! DREW BARRYMORE TO HELM APOCALYPTIC FILM "THE END"

 Although she is much more known for her acting, Drew Barrymore is also a director, and is about to helm a new movie for Warner Bros. Titled THE END, it will be an apocalyptic film intended to take an uplifting look at the end of the world, weaving several plot threads about different people coming to accept their fates. According to "The Hollywood Reporter" these include a tenacious British radio DJ who will not stop broadcasting until the end, a teenage couple in the US being pulled apart by their families and a man fighting his way across Tokyo to be with his wife and child. Drew is also in line to direct HOW TO BE SINGLE, a bestselling novel which charts the love lives of a group of women in New York over a decade.

GREAT EXPECTATIONS PICS
In the visual department I can offer you today some new pictures from the new movie adaptation of famous Charles Dickens novel GREAT EXPECTATIONS. Directed by Mike Newell (HARRY PLOPPER,
 PRINCE OF PERSIA), the new, visually obviously very unique take on the old story, will have a rather stunning cast including always crazy Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Havisham, young Jeremy Irvine from Spielberg's WAR HORSE as the main hero Pip (the role was
 originally meant for Alex Pettyfer), Ralph Fiennes as the criminal Magwitch and THE BORGIAS beauty Holliday Grainger as Estella, alongside Jason Flemyng and Robbie Coltrane in supporting roles. As you know, the story follows a humble orphan who suddenly becomes
a gentleman with the help of an unknown benefactor.The film should hit cinemas in Europe later this November and we are expecting a trailer soon.

NOBODY WALKS TRAILER
The only trailer I have for you today is for sexually charged drama NOBODY WALKS in which the story follows a family which takes in a young artist into their home bringing sexual revelations and tensions to their lives. I must admit the cast is rather unusual for such type of film and includes always brilliant John Krasinski, Rosemarie Dewitt from UNITED STATES OF TARA, Dylan McDermott, young hunks Rhys Wakefield and Blaise Embry.and Olivia Trilby who always seems like a bad choice for all possible roles if you ask me.. Check out the trailer and tell me what do you think? Watch it or not?

 PS don't forget to visit the site of my dear friend Anne O'Leary who is interviewing me on some very serious and some very sweet issues today.

  1. The End sounds like a really great movie. For once, a positive spin on the end of the world. I like Drew's ink too. =P

    I started watching the trailer for Nobody Walks but it lost me after the boot licking LOL

      oh, now, I must watch the trailer again :) I didn't like it the first time, since I don't like seeing dear Krasinski in movies like this

    4. It appears to be unanimous then-we don't like this film.

    5. LOL - hooray - it's unanimous...I wasn't a big fan of the movie itself either and I like Krasinkski himself, just not like this. Like as "this guy".

    6. Wish Krasinski would have better roles :( Wish he would shot a romcom with his wife EMily Blunt!

    7. I always forget he's married to Emily Blunt. She is one classy lady!

    8. wish the two of them would adopt me :)
      Hey, believe it or not, Dylan McDermott retweeted this post last night to tens of thousands of his fans :)

    11. It was a chocolate stunt boot so no wonder somebody needed to lick it.

    12. wonder how the socks look like after you stick them into a chocolate boot....

    13. Hahahahaha. Be gentle, Dezz... I'm one of those visual guys.

  2. Wow, that trailer for Nobody Walks is very sensual and erotically charged. I can't wait to see the entire feast. ;)

    Drew is an incredible director and it's awesome to see her getting bigger budget films.

    Heading over to Anne's, my dear.

    1. I think this interview is an important one. Our dear friend has so much to say about his life and it's been a pleasure to give him a place to express himself in an open and honest way.

  3. I love Drew and have followed her career since she was a wee one. Despite all the troubles she had growing up she turned out to be a strong woman who helps other women in Hollywood.

    It looks like Nobody Walks deals with marital infidelity. I don't approve of those kind of movies and generally avoid them because there is no morality in the world today and I would rather watch something else. This was well received in Sundance but that may not mean it's good. I may be judging too soon, but that's my gut reaction

    1. She directed WHIP IT, which I haven't seen, but I hear people like it.
      We don't like marital infidelity ....

    2. You know there's just no fidelity today. People get bored and take on with someone else and destroy families and themselves in the process. The cost to the young people today is enormous. I see so many lost children with no idea of right and wrong and wonder how they will ever function inside a marriage.

    3. This is why I adore you, Anne! Many hugs to you!

    4. Right back at you Elsie!

    5. yep, like in all other aspects of life, we, as the modern society, have become so alienated and so cyber that we've become irrational and often have expectations which are unrealistic.

  4. Have I mentioned before I love me some crazy Helena Bonham Carter? :) Can't wait to see her in that movie. I may need to read the story again, though. It's been a LONG time since I read Great Expectations.

  5. Interesting trailer...I like the play of emotions and sensuality ~

    And Drew has really grown into the director's role ~ I am proud of her considering where she was growing up ~

    1. it is his most famous work, I'm surprised you didn't do it in primary school.

  7. Drew Barrymore has come a long way since she is an adorably cute 6 year old in ET. She's had some great roles, played next to awesome stars, and I'm looking forward to seeing her directing career take off. Wish someone would give her some fashion advice though :)

    I will check out your interview Dezzy. I've missed you while I was away.

    1. oh, Donnzie, but she did improve her style a lot in recent years, in last three or four years she's often been the belle of the red carpet. This thing on her is Versace methinks.

  8. Didn't The End basically just come out? Liked it better when it was called Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.

  9. wow, Drew is looking good in that shot! I like the premise of her movie, The End. Sounds interesting.

    1. I'm surprised with how many heute couture pics she has, I didn't picture her as style icon in the past :) and now my gallery is filled with her fashion shoots.

  10. Drew has certainly taken on the healthy lifestyle these last few years. I'm a huge fan of hers. I'm not sure about Great Expectations. It is the only book I ever read that I didn't like.

    1. really? With me it's the opposite, I like one in every hundred read books :) But being a professor of English literature I guess I'm too demanding for my own good :(

  11. Does Drew Barrymore age. I don't think she does. She was a child in E.T., then she's this gorgeous early-thirties looking chick and she's been like that for twenty years! :)

    1. ET probably gave her some alien powders for saving eternal youth :)

  12. Wow, I've never seen Krasinski in a role like that. Interesting. I'm looking forward to Barrymore's films, they sound good. And the Dickens is always a favourite.

    1. yep, not his usual choice of roles. I think I like him better in more gentle roles.

  13. I'm back!!

    Hmmm...Nobody Walks reminds me of a plot for a made for television movie. Maybe I would watch it if it came of cable and there was nothing else on...
    As for Drew...love her! Very excited and The End sounds like my kind of movie!

    Great Expectations looks beautiful - can't wait to see a trailer!
