"THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS CITY OF BONES" NEW CHARACTER POSTERS WITH LILY COLLINS! FIRST TRAILER FOR NEW "THE SAINT" TV SHOW WITH ADAM RAYNER, THOMAS KRETSCHMANN, ROGER MOORE!

  NEW THE SAINT TV SHOW 
 The first trailer has been released around the web for upcoming new action spy series THE SAINT which will be offered to networks at the international sale next week. The small screen adaptation of Leslie Charteris' famous spy book from the 70s stars exquisitely seductive Adam Rayner (Huston, methinks we have a new star to obsess about and stalk) as legendary spy Simon Templar with a whole bunch of famous names in the cast too: famous James Bond Roger Moore, German star Thomas Kretschmann and Eliza Dushku. The series is directed by Simon West.  You've seen British hunk Adam Rayner before in TV shows HAWTHORNE, MISTRESSES and MIRANDA. It is interesting that the plans to make a TV remake of THE SAINT have been present since 2009 and both Dougray Scott and James Purefoy were seen in the lead roles in previous two attempts.

  THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS CITY OF BONES POSTERS 
Now, I perfectly do not care about this film (YA just ain't my cup of Earl Gray Tea with a dash of lemon and honey) but I do love my dear Lily 
Collins who has shined like a gem in each film we've seen her so far. Check out two new posters for her new film THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES which hits the big screens this August. One of the posters shows Lily's character, Clary Fray, a young woman who learns she comes from a long line of demon slayers known as Shadowhunters, and the other shows Jamie Campbell Bower (who single handedly ruined CAMELOT with his wimpy and Neely immature acting) as Jace Wayland, one of the Shadowhunters Clary teams up with. The movie adaptation of Cassandra Clare's book follows a seemingly ordinary teenage girl, Clary
Fray, who, after her mom is attacked and taken from their home in New York City by a demon, finds out truths about her past and bloodline on her quest to get her back, that changes her entire life. As a half-angelic being charged with protecting the world from demons she will descend into a New York City underworld known as Darkworld, full of demons and other creatures she never knew existed! The cast has some really lovely names from Irish heartthrobs Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Aidan Turner to Kevin Durand, Lena Headey and Kevin Zegers!

  1. Interesting to see Roger Moore returning to the world of The Saint - hopefully they give him a decent role, and not just a wasted cameo. Just the fact that he's on board (unlike Peter Graves in Mission Impossible) gives me hope.

    1. I'm not sure, but I think Moore is actually behind this whole new series as a producer or something.

  3. When I was a kid, I loved Roger Moore as "The Saint" -- glad to see he's got a cameo in the new series!

  4. lol And I'm definitely looking forward to City of Bones. I really enjoyed the first three books of the series (where I think it should have ended), and I'm especially loving the steampunk Infernal Devices series.

    I think my hubby would agree with you. He'd want to see The Saint instead.

  6. If Adam Rayner is a problem, I'm not sure I want a solution. :P

    And I remember The Saint. I used to watch that as a kid.

    And I'd probably only watch City of Bones to see Aiden Turner and Lena Headey. Two of my favs.

  8. Val Kilmer played the Saint in a movie back in the 90's. I own and I loved it in spite of many people thinking I am weird like that. I'd love a new series.

  9. That MI trailer is amazing ~ I hope I won't be disappointed with the acting ~

    Good to see you Dezzy ~ As to your question about the knife, I just wanted to end with a strong image, a knife does that better than the pen ~

    1. fingers crossed, the lead actor sure is worth seeing the show :) Although I don't like Eliza who is a bad omen and all of her shows have been doomed in the past.

  11. I love me some Earl Grey tea too! Little bit of sugar and a little bit of milk, yummy! Adam Rayner is just as yummy and he needs no sugar =)

      Agreed on no sugar on Adam :)

    1. yep, I'm more of a magical shroom from ALICE IN WONDERLAND..... or a timid dragon from that famous old cartoon about a timid dragon that loves cakes and tea :)

      Lily will always be our Snow White... she was so deeply enchanting in that film. She's my new pet star :)
