TRAILERS FOR "ARTHUR NEWMAN" WITH COLIN FIRTH & EMILY BLUNT & "WHITE HOUSE DOWN" WITH CHANNING TATUM! PATRICK WILSON, KATHERINE HEIGL ARE "NORTH OF HELL"! DANNY BOYLE HELMS 18TH CENTURY SET "INGENIOUS PAIN"

Now there's an interesting new tandem: HOLLYWOOD SPY's fave actor Patrick Wilson and lovely Katherine Heigl will star together in NORTH OF HELL! According to "Deadline" the story of the movie centres on Don Champagne (Patrick Wilson), a successful businessman who seems to be living the good life. What most don't know, however, is his domineering and obsessive wife (Katherine Heigl) viciously controls every aspect of his well-being.

  DANNY BOYLE TO HELM INGENIOUS PAIN 
Meanwhile, TRAINSPOTTING and TRANCE director Danny Boyle has revealed to Digital Spy that his next project will be a period one. He didn't say anything more, but he previously mentioned that he wants to helm adaptation of Andrew Miller's novel INGENIOUS PAIN which takes place in 18th century England and Russia and centres on James Dyer, a surgeon who is impervious to physical pain.

  ARTHUR NEWMAN TRAILER 
They're having the time of everybody else's life! That's the motto of ARTHUR NEWMAN, a delightful new romantic comedy drama with two dear Brits Colin Firth and Emily Blunt.  Wallace Avery
(Colin Firth) is tired of being a loser. Once a hot shot in the world of competitive amateur golf, Wallace failed miserably when he turned pro. Ten years after retiring from the pro tour, he's lost his job. His ex-wife openly pities him. And his son hates him. Unable to face his life of quiet desperation any longer, Wallace stages his own death and buys himself a new identity as ARTHUR NEWMAN. His road trip towards a new life is derailed by the entrance of a beautiful loose cannon, Mike Fitzgerald (Emily Blunt), who's running from her own past. Driving cross country, this mismatched pair of damaged souls begins to connect as they break into empty homes and take on the identities of the absent owners: elderly Southern newlyweds, preening hipsters, a golf champ and his Russian wife, among others.
 An offbeat love story set in a perfect storm of identity crisis, ARTHUR NEWMAN looks at how two people try to remake themselves and come around to owning up to some basic truths about the identities they left at home


  WHITE HOUSE DOWN TRAILER 
Well, the trailer says it openly - if Americans ever lose their freedom it will be when they destroy themselves. So very true. They've always been
 their own worse enemy. This is the first trailer for second movie this year in which White House is under attack. WHITE HOUSE DOWN will see Channing Tatum turning from stripper to saviour!  He portrays John Cale, a cop who is touring the White House with his daughter, when 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is taken over by a paramilitary group who kidnaps the President of the United States (Jamie Foxx), making John the only one who can save the commander-in-chief's life. Directed by Roland Emmerich (who already had fun destroying White House in INDEPENDENCE DAY) the film, about to hit cinemas in June, also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Woods!

  2. "Arthur Newman" sounds good! And a real challenge for the actors to portray. But I know Colin Firth will be up to it! And Emily Blunt as well, I'm sure.

  3. I've been waiting for the time when Blunt and Firth act together. They haven't acted together before now, have they? I'm excited for that.

    1. It's funny though that both of the British actors are using American accents.

    2. I don't think they have, I'd love to see her playing with so many great British actors! She was amazing with Ewan in SALMON FISHING and also amazing with Rupert Friend in YOUNG VICTORIA. She always has amazing chemistry with her partners.

  4. Yay, Colin Firth and Emily Blunt! That will be good and I don't know diddly about golf.

    We think Channing is delicious, but I don't want to see this movie. The sight of the White House being blown up isn't palatable.

    1. I've no idea about golf either, darling :)
      And American obsession with terrorism is also something which makes me puke....

    2. It almost seems like inviting trouble to show such images.

    3. I agree with both of you. I'm not liking all these terrorist themed films.

    4. that is how they prepare their nation for new foreign invasions - by using films ....

    5. Movies and tv started this stuff right after 9/11 and I was shocked by it. I do think it is another form of spreading fear because a scared people are easier to control. The government and media really do try to manipulate how people think.

      Delete
    6. and the scary thing is that the Americans don't really see this. They are feeding them with so much fear and violence and tension on TV that later on those things won't shocked them much in the real life and they will easily allow it because it will become something fictionalized to them.

    2. I do wish you had someone to help you do your cooking and cleaning at home darling. And someone to nurse you along till you feel better.

    3. I wish it so too, Annzie, but no help for me. I'm used to surviving everything on my own.

    4. I know you are darling. It would be nice though if your brother at least would help with the house rather than giving you more work to do.

      Delete
    5. I'd probably die of shock if he'd help in any way. In these two and a half weeks after the surgery, it hasn't even fallen upon his mind to clean the bathroom, so I risked bleeding out by doing it myself.... That's how it is...

  6. okay they make one movie to take down the united states and then another, we must be thinking how easy it is to break our government.... we are heading for a total meltdown.

  10. Hmmm, other than seeing some stuff get blown up, I didn't see any compelling story line for White House Down. But if anything can save America, it's a stripper with Channing Tatum's abs. :)

  15. That loser! Well, I'm sure he'll regret it when he writes his biography. No, I didn't know that. I saw a movie in which she gets hit by a truck. I really hated that moment. Why did she have to die, you horrible horrible director? You know? Yes, you've told me before about Cate being number one. Come to think of it.... who is my favorite actress? I own 700 DVD's and I've got no idea.... How did that happen?

    1. probably because you ponder on Patrick Duffy too much in your free time, dear Mandy :PPP
