"EMPEROR" TRAILER WITH TOMMY LEE JONES & MATTHEW FOX! "THE BEST OFFER" TRAILER WITH GEOFFREY RUSH, JIM STURGESS! TORNATORRE'S "LENINGRAD" WW2 EPIC! CHARLIE HUNNAM & EMMA STONE IN DEL TORO'S "CRIMSON PEAK" THRILLER

 Today you can check out a new trailer for Peter Webber's historical drama EMPEROR which should open up in theatres this March telling the story, inspired by true events, of the bold and secret moves that won the peace in the shadows of post-war Japan. Starring Academy Award- winner
 Tommy Lee Jones, Matthew Fox, and newcomer Eriko Hatsune, EMPEROR brings to life the American occupation of Japan in the perilous and unpredictable days just after Emperor Hirohito's World War II surrender. As General Douglas MacArthur (Jones) suddenly finds himself the de facto ruler of a foreign nation, he assigns an expert in Japanese culture - General Bonner Fellers (Fox), to covertly investigate the looming question hanging over the country: should the Japanese Emperor, worshipped by his people but accused of war crimes, be punished or saved? The film also has a love story between Fellers and a Japanese girl.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
 It also seems that Charlie Hunnam from SONS OF ANARCHY will again work with director Guillermo Del Toro! The two of them worked together on science fiction spectacle PACIFIC RIM which hits
  cinemas  later this summer, but now "Variety" reports that he could star in Del Toro's new thriller CRIMSON PEAK. Not much is know about the paranormal thriller except that it might also star Emma Stone. And the famous Italian director Giuseppe Tornatore, for whose new film you can watch a trailer below, is planning a $100 million epic on WWII. Titled LENINGRAD (not to be confused with STALINGRAD I mentioned last week), and written by late Sergio Leone, it will depict the seige of Leningrad by the German army during World War II. The Russians suffered terrible losses but the Communists would not give up the birthplace of the Russian revolution. The film has been in preproduction for many years now and Tornatorre wants Nicole Kidman in one of the lead roles.

THE BEST OFFER TRAILER
And here's a trailer we've been waiting for a long time now:Italian movie THE BEST OFFER starring Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush and young Jim Sturgess. Directed by Giuseppe Tornatore the helmer of classics such as MALENA and CINEMA PARADISO, and also starring Donald Sutherland beside Geoffrey Rush and Jim Sturgess, the griping movie brings the tale of an eccentric art expert who is invited by a mysterious woman to assess a piece, and it's a journey that will change his life forever. The film, which is currently
 playing in Italian cinemas and should get its US release later this year, has a great honour of having legendary Ennio Morricone as the writer of the music.

BIG THANK YOU!
And also big thanks to the delightful cast of DA VINCI'S DEMONS - amazing Tom Riley, gorgeous Laura Haddock and utterly delightful
Elliot Cowan - who all sent us messages, tweets and retweets last night after reading our spotlight on their show! Such brilliant and kindhearted people they are!

    1. should be good if they stay true to the story and not make it overly American and biased as they almost always do.

  2. Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Hunnam... I just love this man. He is so gorgeous and sexy and maybe he'll be in the Magic Mike sequel. Oh yeah...;))

    I am really over the whole American soldier wartime romance. Yawn... I sure hope they concentrate on TLJ and the tension of dealing with the culture rather than the romance.

  4. These all look good Dezzy. Charlie looks good even without all the tattoos. I'm anxiously awaiting season 5 (or is it 6 already) of SOA. Charlie said he injured himself just before shooting the season - probably in Pacific Rim - and there won't be as many full body shots of him cuz he couldn't work out much; but I doubt he lost much muscle during his recovery. I'm so glad he's growing his hair out again :)

    Yes, I'm on my way to google his men's fitness pictures now. Thanks for the tip Dezzy :)

  6. I'm a fan of T.L. Jones and I hope they're staying true to the story, Dezz. Then again, it's all about the money... It's all about the dumb dumb doobidoo dumb... ;)

  8. I wonder if that romance in Emperor was historically accurate

    1. probably not, but Hollywood loves romance...

  9. So I'm guessing there's a resurgence of WWII love going on at the moment?

    1. not so much, it's just that HOLLYWOOD SPY as one of web's leading sources on all things historical and epic, reports about such projects and not about some others...

  10. I can see The Emperor being a big hit with the guys. My husband enjoys war movie and documentaries. Personally, they sadden me and make me wish women could have a turn at running the world for a while...

    1. they wouldn't bring big changes, sister, look at some countries in Europe ruled by ladies - they're in the same trouble as others, take that German fuhrer lady for example - the woman is crazier than most of her male colleagues....

    2. She has to be to make it in a man's world... to be considered 1/2 as good, women have to be twice as bad, lol!!

      Sadly, you're probably right, though :)

    3. yep, no matter which point we look at it, politics is a whore, as my grandfather used to say :)

  11. Tommy Lee Jones is getting craggy in his old age and yet he looks awesome. No fair that guys can get away with wrinkles.

  12. maybe I could be interested with Del Toro's movies...
    I like Hellboy and mainly Pan's Labyrinth, and I'm surprised that he participed in "The Hobbit" movies !

    1. I'm extremely glad that Toro didn't get to do HOBBIT since I cannot stand his violent and irresponsible ways.... The open killing of kids in PAN'S LABYRINTH is something absolutely unacceptable and deeply dangerous!

  13. i think i missed something... sorry!

  14. HI, Dezzy.....

    Tommy Lee Jones is an amazing character actor, so this film should be intense and well worth seeing.

    Well, I had to do a DOUBLE TAKE of that pic of Charlie Hunnam .... There is a guy at my gym who could be his IDENTICAL TWIN.... The resemblance is uncanny!
