DRAMATIC TRAILER FOR RAFTING ACTION "KON-TIKI" & ROMANTIC FOR "SOMETHING REAL AND GOOD"! ROBERT EMMS CAST IN BBC "ATLANTIS"! ROBBIE AMELL IN "TOMORROW PEOPLE" SF SHOW! BRIDGET REGAN JOINS "MURDER IN MANHATTAN" SERIES

 Your first trailer for today is for Norwegian Best Foreign Film contender at this year's Oscars - KON-TIKI: In 1947, the world is gripped
with excitement as the young Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl embarks on an astonishing expedition - a journey of 4,300 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean on the KON-TIKI raft. Thor suspects that the South Sea Islands had been settled by ancient South Americans from thousands of miles to the east. Despite his inability to swim and fear of water, Thor decides to prove his theory by sailing the legendary voyage himself. After replicating the design of an ancient raft in balsa wood, Thor and five fellow adventurers set sail from Peru. Their only modern equipment is a radio, and they take a parrot along for company. A natural leader, Thor uses the stars and
the ocean's current to navigate the raft. After three dangerous months on the open sea, encountering raging storms, sharks, and all the dangers the Ocean can muster, the exhausted crew sight Polynesia and make
 a triumphant landing. Having sacrificed everything for his mission, even his marriage, the success of the KON-TIKI expedition proves bittersweet for Thor. The film hits cinemas in April!

  HOLLYWOOD HEADLINES 
In latest TV news, lovely Bridget Regan, whom we remember as the lead actress from LEGEND OF THE SEEKER, has taken the lead role in ABC new drama MURDER IN MANHATTAN and will play a part of
a New York-based mother and daughter team who act as amateur sleuths. Over at CW, REVENGE star Robbie Amell has joined new sf show THE TOMORROW PEOPLE about teens with super powers who fight evil around the world. He will play a tortured young man who dreams of being normal next to Peyton List and Luke Mitchell! Meanwhile over in United Kingdom, BBC has made their first casting choice for their Autumn 2013 new epic fantasy show ATLANTIS which will replace MERLIN in Saturday primetime! Robert Emms (WAR HORSE, MIRROR MIRROR) will play young Pythagoras, a genius mathematician and philosopher, in the thirteen episode series set in the mysterious ancient world of ATLANTIS a place of bull leaping, of snake haired goddesses and of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants. It’s into this strange, compelling realm that the young Jason

arrives and an amazing adventure begins, bringing to life the vast store of Greek myths and legends re-imagined for a new generation. The role of Jason is yet to be cast, let us hope they cast someone delightful like Colin Morgan was in MERLIN!

  1. HI, Dez,

    STOP THAT KON TIKI wave PLEASE. I actually got a quick bout of motion sickness looking at it. SERIOUSLY.

    But the rest of your post settled me nicely. Cute boy, Robbie Amell.

    Something Real and Good looks intriguing. I'll have to check it out.

  8. Kon Tiki looks interesting, but I'm leary at what is obviously a set up for drama to have people in the water with great white sharks. It just seems so "obvious" and it's one of the reasons I liked the film adaptation of "Life of Pi" so much. You had this lifeboat out in the middle of nowhere and they didn't "exploit the sharks" as it were.

    And I'm definitely going to watch Atlantis.
