AMAZING NEW CHARACTER PICTURES FOR "LES MISERABLES"! NEW "HOST" POSTER WITH SAOIRSE RONAN! NEW ABC SF SHOW "EVOLVE"! SUSPENSE TRAILER FOR SF "THE EUROPA REPORT"

 Now, take a look at these magnificent pictures: photos for the cast of LES MISERABLES done almost like paintings. As you probably remember from HOLLYWOOD SPY's extensive spotlight on the film, set against the backdrop of 19th century France, LES MISERABLES tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption, a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. The musical movie focuses on ex-prisoner Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman), hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Russell Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's
  (Anne Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette (Amanda Seyfried), their lives change forever. In December 2012, the world's longest running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper's sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo's epic tale. Hugh Jackman plays Jean Valjean, a Frenchman released from
 Toulon prison after 19 years of imprisonment for stealing bread and failed attempts of escaping from the prison. Russell Crowe appears as Inspector Javert, a police inspector who releases Valjean on parole, then later dedicates his life to imprisoning him again. Anne Hathaway portrays Fantine, a struggling factory worker and mother of an illegi- 
timate child, Cosette. She is eventually forced to turn to prostitution. Amanda Seyfried will be seen as Cosette, the illegitimate daughter of Fantine who has grown into a beautiful teenager under Valjean's care and falls in love with Marius. Sacha Baron Cohen plays Thénardier, a common thief who is also an innkeeper. He is also the father of Éponine (played by Samantha Barks) and Gavroche (played by Daniel 
Huttlestone), while Helena Bonham Carter appears as Madame Thénardier, the unscrupulous innkeeper's wife who, along with her husband, houses and abuses Cosette until Valjean "buys" her from them after Fantine's death. Ultra talented Eddie Redmayne portrays Marius Pontmercy, a student revolutionary who is friends with the Thenardiers' daughter, Éponine, but falls in love with Cosette.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Your poster treat for today is the new poster for upcoming fantasy thriller HOST which is to hit cinemas next March starring Saoirse Ronan and that god-awful Max Irons (remember his crimes against
  acting in RED RIDDING HOOD?). The movie adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's novel takes place in a world where aliens known as Souls have the ability to infiltrate a human's mind and body. Saoirse Ronan stars as Melanie Stryder, one of the few left who have not been taken over by this alien race. In TV news, THE CROW director Alex Proyas will helm new sci fi drama EVOLVE for ABC. Based on a planned trilogy of novels by Tim Lebbon the show will be set two years after a biological disaster. With a toxic Los Angeles sealed off, a small group of survivors living outside the quarantine zone embark on a mission to learn the truth behind the catastrophe and discover a race of people with superhuman abilities.

EUROPA REPORT TRAILER
When it comes to video material, your trailer for today is the first one for upcoming science fiction thriller THE EUROPA REPORT. As you will see yourself the trailer is extremely atmospheric and creepy and fills your bones with chills with the eerie music!  Starring Daniel Wu, Christian Camargo, Michael Nuqvist and Sharlto Copley, this
science fiction adventure follows a contemporary manned mission to Europa – the fourth moon of Jupiter - the place thought by scientists to hold the greatest probability for alien life in our solar system. When unmanned probes suggest that a hidden ocean exists underneath the icy surface of the moon and could contain single-celled life, an interna-
tional  crew of six embark on a privately funded mission to the edges of our solar system to confirm the data and explore the truly revolutionary scientific discoveries that lie in the Europan ocean.The long and ambitious journey tests the psychological and physical limits of the crew as they travel further into the depths of space.

  4. Les Mis looks splendid. The visuals, the costuming, the music, the story all add up to a feast for the senses. I do love those pics as well. The richness of the colours and the atmosphere is just wonderful.

    I do wish that the trailer for Europa had been a bit longer as the story sounds intriguing.

    1. it's a lovely VOGUE photo shoot, I love it when magazines do such photo sessions with the whole cast of a film.

    2. I haven't had a VOGUE in my hands for years and years. Too many lovely things I can't afford to buy and it makes me sad to look at it.

    3. I've never had a VOGUE in my hands, darling, if that's any consolation to you :PP

  5. Les Mis looks so over the top and so overdone I'm gonna have to skip that one. I saw a preview for it at the movies and almost had to get out of my seat until the preview was over. No way could I sit through the entire movie.

    3. yep, Debs, it's for VOGUE :) Although Leibovitz did have amazing photo shoots for VANITY FAIR too. And for ROLLING STONE as Annzie says

  9. Can't wait for Les Miz! As for The Host, well I'm not fond of Twilight at all and this one has some similarities, but I might give it a shot because I like Saoirse. She's eons better than that darn K-Stew!

    P.S. Looks like you changed your comment system again Dez, well at least I can still comment this time :)

    1. I had to put OPEN ID comment form because I've been getting up to 15 spam comments a day and even though Blogger catches them and sends them to my spam box, I still get notifications on them in my personal e-mail and it became tiresome...

  10. I think Les Mis might make me like Russell Crowe again. And I am totally excited over the casting of Helena and Sacha in those roles..PERFECT!!

    As for The Host...not so much a Stephanie Meyer fan, but the story sounds interesting ans Saorise is pretty incredible, so just maybe!

  12. "The Host" ??????
    but there is another movie with the same tittle!
    (a very good Hong-Kong fantasy/sf one made by
    Joon-ho Bong )
    the "new" one don't seems to be very original!

    I'm curious to see the Hollywood version of "Les Misérables" !
    (didn't see the trailers: they always give too much informations about the movie!)

  13. THE EUROPA REPORT looks like the graphics are going to be great. It's hard to tell from what little they gave us in the trailer (tease). The storyline sounds great though!

  16. Sorry I'm so late, sweetheart. I had a horribly busy day yesterday. :(

    I cannot wait for Les Mis and these posters are exquisite. It is one of my favorite musicals of all time.

    Anything by Stephenie Myer is bound to suck, but I like Saiorse, so I may give this a chance.
