LUCAS TILL, ALEX PETTYFER, JEREMY IRVINE IN LINE FOR "DIVERGENT"! ANG LEE TO HELM ANGELINA JOLIE'S "CLEOPATRA"? "TRANCE" TRAILER WITH JAMES MCAVOY, VINCENT CASSEL!

 A new one in the line of blockbusters based on YA novels is DIVERGENT which is moving on with its preproduction. "Variety" offers updates
from the projects, with the news on the young actors who are auditioning for the lead male role in the story by Veronica Roth which is very similar to infamous HUNGER GAMES with teens fighting for their lives in a futuristic setting. The lead female role already went to young Shailene Woodley, while three names competing for the male role are - Lucas Till from X-MEN, LAST SONG and STOKER, English hunk Alex Pettyfer from I AM NUMBER 4 and MAGIC MIKE, and Jeremy Irvine from WAR HORSE and GREAT EXPECTATIONS. The tale is set in a dystopian future Chicago where Beatrice Prior must make the choice facing every 16-year-old between one of the five
factions that represent different virtues. The decision forces her to make the choice between remaining with her family and being true to herself.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Your poster treat for today is the first poster for upcoming animated adventure EPIC which hits cinemas this May with voices from Beyonce, Amanda Seyfried, Steve Tyler, Colin Farrell, Josh
 Hutcherson and Jason Sudeikis. Directed by Chris Wedge, the helmer of famous ICE AGE saga, this delightful film filled with green colour and enchanting imagery, will follow a teenager who finds herself transported to a deep forest setting where a battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil is taking place. She bands together with a rag-tag group characters in order to save their world - and ours. You can read more about it in our exclusive spotlight. In short news - according to "The Hollywood Reporter" LIFE OF PI's Ang Lee has apparently been offered the helm of Angelina Jolie's CLEOPATRA and he is about to read the script before accepting. James Cameron is among those who refused the job.

TRANCE TRAILER
Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the first trailer for their action thriller TRANCE directed by famous British moviemaker Danny Boyle. Hitting theatres next month, the film stars James McAvoy as
 Simon, an art auctioneer who double-crosses a team of thieves during a heist. After being knocked unconscious by the crime boss Frank (French star Vincent Cassel), Simon swears he does not know where he
stashed the painting. Frank employs a hypnotherapist (Rosario Dawson) to try and recover the location of the missing piece of artwork.

  1. Trance, a film quite hectic, it looks almost like a Tarantino film... Vincent Cassel is a very good actor

    1. and the trailer itself is quite strange with too many close up shots. The marketing for the film is really bad - a month before the premiere and they don't have a poster nor pictures from the film.

  2. You know how I wish they would stop making these wretched films for YA, but I don't think that is going to happen :(

    But on the plus side there are films like Epic for children to grow up watching and for adults to be reminded that part of the world is still full of light.

    1. yep, it ain't gonna happen, Annzie, not until they discover a new genre with kindergarden kids as assassins and babies as fighters :(

      I love how you noticed that I used EPIC as a counterpart to the first film.

      How is your stomach, dahlink?

    2. I'm continually amazed that they are making YA films from books that haven't even been published. And yes, they are all the same type of story. Choose among the virtues? WTF?

    3. yep, people from YA are so trying to be original that they become utterly silly ... with them it's all about the violence and the original plot idea fantasy related, not about the message and characters and role models.

  3. I've seen promos for EPIC in the theatres and it looks incredible -- the imaginary world of my dreams :)

  7. Trance has potential.
    I can see Divergent as a movie. I hope they do a good job so YA books continue being popular for the movies ;)

  8. What is with all of these animated 3D films? We always choose to see them in their non-3D format and then they look strange.

  9. I liked Trance's trailer. It was a movie I would enjoy as a rental or perhaps one I'd wait to come on television but not worthy of a visit to the movies.
