DELIGHTFUL "JUSTIN AND THE KNIGHTS OF VALOUR" TRAILER WITH RUPERT EVERETT, ALFRED MOLINA, SAOIRSE RONAN! LUKE EVANS IN "GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY"! JASON MOMOA IS DRAX THE DESTROYER IN "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY"! MINNI DRIVER JOINS "ABOUT A BOY" SITCOM!

Hollywood Spy's absolute favourite Welshman, deeply charismatic Luke Evans (THE HOBBIT, THE THREE MUSKETEERS, IMMORTALS), whom you shall watch this summer as a naughty guy in FAST AND FURIOUS 6 next to Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, and Paul Walker, has got himself a new gig. This time, as "The Sun" reports, he will show his outstanding talent on television in new mini series GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY. The two part series will see him playing Bruce Reynolds who hatched the plan for the 1963 mail train
 heist, at the time Britain’s biggest ever robbery, with a haul worth £41million in today’s money. After fleeing to Mexico, Bruce Reynolds spent five years on the run before being jailed for 25 years in 1969. He was released in 1978. One part of the television drama will follow the thieves while the other will circle around the police and their efforts to catch the robbers. The mini series should hit the British small screens sometime later this year!

  HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
In movie news from this weekend, GAME OF THRONES star Jason Momoa has been cast as Drax in upcoming sf film GUARDIANS OF 
THE GALAXY joining Chris Pratt who got the lead role of Star-Lord the leader of the Guardians a few weeks ago. Drax the Destroyer is a super hero with incredible strength and the ability to emit energy blasts from his hands. Only a few days ago I informed you that new NBC sitcom ABOUT A BOY had found their male lead in David Walton, who will play a rich bachelor man-child whose life changes totally when he befriends a smart little kid who moves in next door with his eccentric divorced mother, and now I can also inform you that Minnie Driver has landed the role of the mother! The roles were played by Hugh Grant, Toni Collette and Nicholas Hoult in the film!

  JUSTIN AND THE KNIGHTS OF VALOUR TRAILER
I have an extremely charming trailer for you today! The first one for the animated adventure that I spotlighted for you last year JUSTIN AND THE KNIGHTS OF VALOURJustin (Freddie Highmore) wants to be a knight but his father, Reginald (Alfred Molina), the chief counsel to the Queen (Olivia Williams), wants his son to become a lawyer. In need of guidance, Justin visits his Grandmother (Julie Walters), who tells him the story of his Grandfather, Sir Roland, the noblest knight in the kingdom and protector of the King until they were both betrayed and killed by the evil Sir Heraclio (Mark Strong). After he runs away from home, Justin meets Talia (Saoirse Ronan), a beautiful, feisty and independently-
minded girl, who shares his aspirations and whom he eventually falls for. He also meets a quirky wizard called Melquiades (David Walliams) who tells him where he can find the magical Abbey where the Knights of Valour once trained. At the Abbey, he is mentored by three ancient monks. Blucher (James Cosmo) instructs him in knightly ways; Legantir (Charles Dance) teaches him there is still
magic in the world; and Braulio (Barry Humphries) who creates magical contraptions, and is responsible for Gustav, the gas-powered wannabe-dragon crocodile (I swear I fell in love with the crocodile in the trailer, probably one of the most delightful animated characters ever :)!
Justin, though an unlikely candidate for knighthood, is determined to pursue his ideals. Called upon to prove himself when Heraclio and his minions, lead by Sota (Rupert Everett), return and threaten the kingdom, Justin saves the day.

    Hope you had a great weekend.

    1. I'm totally wasted after this weekend, since it was forty days after my dad's funeral and I did the catering today for all the guests and everything... so I'm tired as a donkey.
      We haven't had much snow this winter here in Central Europe :(

    2. The forty days is an Orthodox tradition yes? Does this mean that the period of mourning is now over?

      Rest well tonight darling.

    3. that's the tradition, the funeral, the forty days and the year after. I think that ladies usually wear black for a year or so. I'm not religious, as you know, so I don't know the rules.

    4. I know you're not darling. I had a friend from Poland named Michael and when his father died, I remembered him making two trips home. And I knew about the year after. I didn't know if the women still wore mourning black though.

    5. I meant to put the question here the page jumped and I didn't have the comment in the right spot.

      Do you like this tradition?

      my city is 90% Catholic, darling, since mostly Croatians, Bunjevacs and Hungarians live here. Not all people wear black in mourning, but most do. We didn't have a priest at the funeral, I was against it and my brother too, since father wasn't religious at all, even though my mom is somewhat afraid of God.

  4. The Great Train Robbery should be a good one. I hope we'll get that here in the US eventually.

    And the trailer for Justin is adorable. I love the crocodile with gas-powered wings!

    2. Same tradition as I was raised as Catholic ~

    3. yep, that's because this is also a Catholic city :)

  6. Oh I love that croc too. I want someone to make a miniature of him, so I can paint him. Justin is going to be grand. It has everything I like in it-animation, comedy and great characters.

    And Luke certainly is a busy boy isn't he? This is good for us, because the more he works, the more we get to stare at him. If he tweets you again darling, tell him Anne said hello!

    1. and isn't the animation in JUSTIN absolutely amazing and vivid and warm and colourful, I just love it, and the croc is a superstar :)
      I got tweets from Tom Riley and Dylan McDermott this week, dahlink, maybe a retweet from Luke tomorrow :)

    2. I'll most likely buy Justin on DVD when it comes out as that one will be a keeper.

      Oooh you is so lucky. All those gorgeous men and there is just one of you to go around :)

    3. I will also enjoy Justin many times when I put my paws on him (and here I mean Timberlake as well LOL)

      Yes, dahlink, they lurv me so much :PPP

  8. Justin looks kinda cute, though it feels mostly like a How To Train Your Dragon copy. Chances are that I'll still see it, though :)

    1. JUSTIN is much older, since the production started much before DRAGON, but it got delayed.

  9. Justin a superb job on the 3D image, and apparently a very funny scenario, I'd surely look ;)

  11. Ugh. Justin and the Knights of Valour looks like it is entirely written for those kids that fell in love with Jar Jar Binks in the Phantom Menace. I will not be seeing it as I'm clearly above the age of 8.

    That can't be a recent picture of Jason Momoa. He's so much larger these days. It almost looks like someone took his head and photoshopped it onto a different body.

    1. Can't say I agree, Michael. JUSTIN is made for all of the people with clear and open hearts who love the warmth and creative positivity on the big screen and who see the heartwarming goodness and love and passion in delightful films like this one was. Jar Jar had nothing of that, he was just annoying and empty :)

      Yep, that's an old pic of Momoa, for some reason he doesn't do photo shoots often :( Couldn't find any lovely of more recent date. And I needed a blue pic to go with Justin :)

  12. This is a charming trailer ~ What are heroes made of, surely more than muscles, smiles ~

    Thanks for all the updates, specially about Luke ~
