NEW PICS OF HUGH JACKMAN AS "THE WOLVERINE" & HENRY CAVILL AS "MAN OF STEEL"! WW2 TRAILER FOR RUPERT GRINT'S "INTO THE WHITE"! "THE LADY WHO WENT TOO FAR" 18TH CENTURY EPIC! REESE WITHERSPOON IN "THE GOOD LIE"

In her effort to take a more serious direction in her career, Reese Witherspoon has landed yet another dramatic role: she will apparently star in THE GOOD LIE. Inspired by a real story, the film will centre on a young refugee of the Sudanese Civil War who wins a lottery for relocation to the U.S. with three other lost boys. Encountering the modern world for the first time, they develop an unlikely friendship with a brash American woman assigned to help them, but the young man struggles to adjust to his new life and his feelings of guilt about the brother he left behind. Meanwhile, "THR" writes that David Seidler, THE KING'S SPEECH scribe, has a new project: THE LADY WHO WENT TOO FAR will be a sweaping and adventurous period epic on Lady Hester Stanhope, who rejected London society in the early 1800s to travel across the Mediterranean and into the Middle East, where she played a major role in stifling Napoleon's advances toward India.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Oooh, a bunch of delightful new photos from the upcoming blockbusters for you today, my people. First, check out the dashing picture of Hugh Jackman as all suited up Wolverine from
"GQ Magazine"! THE WOLVERINE will hit cinemas this July and will see him travelling to Japan to train with a samurai warrior. His origin story also stars Famke Janssen and Will Yun Lee. The second picture is from another superhero - Superman, with Henry Cavill posing as MAN OF STEEL for the cover of EMPIRE! That film is hitting cinemas this June directed by Zack Snyder and also starring Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russel Crowe as Superman's father, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Clark Kent's adoptive parents, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White in the story about a child, sent to Earth from a dying planet,
which is then is adopted by a couple in rural Kansas. Posing as a journalist, he uses his extraordinary powers to protect his new home from an insidious evil! The $200 million film will delve into the psychology of Superman!

INTO THE WHITE TRAILER
And I have a trailer for you today for a Norwegian and Swedish World War 2 drama INTO THE WHITE. The historical thriller  tells the
 story of English and German pilots who shoot each other down, and later find themselves at the same cabin in the middle of some polar region swept with snow and blizzard. In order to survive the tough winter in the Norwegian wilderness they have to stand together. It's the start of a long and unlikely friendship. Beside HARRY PLOPPER's Rupert Grint who plays one of the British pilots, the cast also includes Florian Lukas, David Kross, Lachlan Nieboer and Sondre Larse. The film premiered last year in Norway but will open in Russia, Germany and USA later this spring and winter.

    1. it seems like a very dramatic WW2 film and I always love polar setting in any film :)

  2. High hopes for Man of Steel - from what we've seen, it's definitely a darker, more brooding take on his story, but that may not be a bad thing. The cast is absolutely stellar, so let's hope the story is worthy of their collective efforts.

    5. LOL, Ivy is also obsessed with Huge Jackman? :)

    6. You were right Anne. But it's not Huge, Dez, it's Wolverine.

      Yummy, num, num.

    7. How do you know it's not "huge". Rumour has it....

    8. Hahahahahaha :-) I meant Hugh, bad me.

    9. that is because I deliberately said Huge in my comment :)

    10. PS speaking of such rumours, Liam Neeson apparently has the biggest one, one of his girlfriends said that he has an Evian bottle hidden there :)
      Jared Leto is also in that list and Ewan McGregor too, and we've all seen that young Chris Brown also hides a snake in his pants. And I trust you've seen Michael Fassbender's dangling beast in his films, he is shockingly huge.

    1. hope not, recent Batmans were horrid and irresponsibly morbid films, dangerous and mindlessly violent.

  8. I really like the sound of The Good Life. I love when actors challenge themselves with roles like these and Reese is such a good actress I think she'll do a great job. I can't wait for a trailer.

  11. Reese Witherspoon needs is trying to make a more serious change in her career? Isn't she a movie producer now? I'm pretty sure she's doing the film adaptation of Gone Girl. So going from acting to producer/director/discoverer is pretty serious.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes, she is producing GONE GIRL, and might star in it too, if Emily Blunt, who is the lead contender for the role, doesn't get the work.

  12. Oh my, those are some serious chops on Mr. Jackman aren't they? :D

  13. I watched The Kings Speech last week and loved the film. Very much looking forward to the Lady Who Went Too Far. Although she may have saved India, she didn't save it from the Brits :)

    1. I'm torn when it comes to THE KINGS SPEECH, since I loved the actors, but found the story a bit monotonous and a bit snobbish, since I usually have no warm feelings nor compassion for royal heads :), but we can view the film as the victory of will in general and overcoming problems.

  14. Feck, that should say saved India from Napoleon...

    1. wish she saved them from the Brits too, dahlink.... Only God knows how many poor Hindu people have been slaughtered, beaten and raped by evil British invaders over the centuries :(

    2. They slaughtered us for over 700 years. And, no, I'm not really "over it" yet.

    3. you can never get over such things...

  15. I'll be looking forward to The Wolverine and possibly the Reese W. film although admittedly I'm not big into dramas unless they're historical. But I do like Reese.

  17. I kind of liked the trailer for Into the White. I tend to like those kinds of films about survival under brutal conditions and the choices it forces people to make. Well, as long as they don't eat each other. :P

    1. yep, that is the reason why I watch WALKING DEAD, for all those choices and psychological and moral dilemmas they are put in...
